Prescience and Paranoia

Here's a recent post from a popular buzz board:

"Does anyone else feel overwhelmed trying to keep up with the daily deluge of crap this man [Obama] is doing to our country? I assume everyone here is awake and paying attention and it’s still hard to keep up. The low information folks out there are really going to be screwed when the crap hits the fan. At least we’ll see it coming. I wouldn't want to write the history books pertaining
to the last 6 years. Can you imagine?! [It] will be larger than War and Peace!"

In the early stages of the Obama regime, those who cared to look discovered the Cloward-Piven Strategy of Organized Crisis. Basically, it mapped out a course to overwhelm the public welfare system, precipitating a crisis that would lead to a national system of "a guaranteed annual income, and idealistically end poverty". The husband-wife team hoped to accomplish this by informing the poor of their so-called rights to a wide variety of welfare assistance, encouraging them to demand anything and everything immediately and, in effect, overload and collapse an already overburdened bureaucracy.


That essential aspect of the Cloward-Piven strategy morphed into the idea the strategy wasn't just confined to the welfare system but outlined Obama’s essential game plan to – as he infamously said -  “fundamentally transform America”. As we look out over the Current Events landscape today, Federal skullduggery, job and business killing regulatory interventions, scandals of outright criminal behavior are virtually ubiquitous. From Fast and Furious to Benghazi to the IRS and its progeny, Iraq and back, to chaos on the Mexican border , to “prosecutorial discretion”, it appears to be intentionally choreographed, happening with simultaneous precision - just like the Organized Crisis Cloward-Piven describes.


Is this it? ? Why else would the Obama administration go to such concentrated efforts to create such mayhem? True, it could be a Straw Man action governments notoriously concoct: Create the problem. Focus on the problem. Scare the citizens with the problem. Then “solve” the problem with a solution that requires the expansion of Government power, greater control over our lives and the diminution of Liberty. Yes, this has an unattractive historical lineage but never to this degree or extent...at least not in modern history to recent memory.

This is long. But then, compressing 6-7 years even of "current" history into a few paragraphs is impossible. Some things need all the details to be fully absorbed. This is one of them.

My intent was to write the final expository work on the machinations of the Obama administration. But then, I discovered the seminal work had already been done by Jim Simpson, former White House staff economist and budget analyst, back in September 2008 when it was all still unfolding.

Awhile back, I wrote: Time is the sole arbiter between Prescience and Paranoia. Time has rendered Jim Simpson prescient. His insightful work follows. Remember, this was written in 2008, 6 years before the manifestation of the Realities itemized below....

A Timely Reminder

Originally posted just a few months ago, the crumbling of society has accelerated, exacerbated by an aggressively emboldened - or increasingly desperate - MSM to mis- and disinform anyone attempting to pay attention via their "News". Feel free to share with your friends, especially those having trouble with discernment. BW When searching for the reason why things go wrong, stop when you get to the Media. The Media is our Teacher. It's the whole world's teacher.    Everything we learn, we learn from the Media. With screens, cameras, actors and glib, well-coiffed hosts, radio and TV signals, cable, microwave, publishing, the all-powerful Internet with its own 'social media', it instructs us hourly, daily, weekly, month in, year out. The classroom is anywhere; it's ubiquitous. Class is in session even when school is closed. The course are Obedience, Submission, Conformity, Regimentation. There is no 'graduation'. There is no individual achievement, on

The Color of Crime

In the Age of BLM, here are some stats you may find informative - maybe even useful: • Black males age 18-35 years of age are only 1.8% of the U.S. population, yet have committed 52% of homicides from 1980-2008. Black males (all ages) are only 6% of the U.S. population, yet commit 46% of all violent crimes, and 50% of the gun homicides. If Blacks were removed from the equation, the U.S. gun homicide rate would be equal to Great Britain's, who have some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the world. • The Black homicide rate is 17 per 100,000, a rate over 9x that of the White rate, and comparable to some of those most murderous countries in the world. If the homicide rate for the U.S. were the White-only rate, the homicide rate would drop 84%, making the U.S. rate comparable to European countries. • According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics 2018 survey of criminal victimization, there were 593,598 interracial violent victimizations (ex

Dear Dr Fauci

NOTE: Linked below is the most comprehensive, direct, factual and professional peer-to-peer confrontation of Dr. Anthony Fauci I've seen. It's long. It poses direct questions to Fauci that likely reflect the same questions you have had - but not answered. There is no way this Open Letter can be construed as "conspiracy theory" or the product of a "special interest group" with a profit motive similar to the purported connections between Fauci and Bill Gates. Take the few minutes it will require to read and adsorb the entire piece. Yes, there are a few "medical" terms but nothing that will obscure the totality of the gauntlet thrown at the feet of Dr. Fauci. His various, often oblique or contradictory pronouncements taken as 'gospel' by power-crazed politicians have killed thousands, ruined businesses, even entire cities. Demand answers by writing directly to him directly and your various representatives. Share this with everyone yo
