In his 1971 handbook, Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals, the godfather of community organizers, Saul D. Alinsky, asserted that the “basic requirement for the politics of change is to reorganize the world as it is.”
To Alinsky, the world and its history were all about revolution.
Saul Alinsky radicals who are all about revolutionary change (“we are the ones we’ve been waiting for” kind of change) have now seized control of an issue that can more quickly bring about that change – “climate disruption,” as expressed in community-organizer lingo.
If Alinsky were alive today, he would likely fit right in with the current activist climate scientists. Alinsky would probably see that the challenge is to convince enough of the “Have-Nots” that their privation stems not just from racism, sexism, classism, and all the other social -isms used to divide people, but also from what some have called “climatism.”
Ensconced in political power, today’s Alinsky-style radical elites running roughshod over pure scientific practice can force societal change predicated on unfounded predictions of climate doom. … Continue Reading
A former mayor of New York City and one-time presidential hopeful isn’t backing down from his critical comments about President Obama.
Last Wednesday evening, Rudy Giuliani said he doesn’t believe Barack Obama loves America and offered a list of reasons why. Giuliani’s comments drew fierce reaction, even from Fox News host Megyn Kelly, who during “The Kelly File” stated there was “outrage and backlash” at the remarks the 2008 presidential candidate made at a private fundraiser for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, a prospective GOP presidential candidate for 2016.
But when asked by Kelly if he wanted to apologize, Giuliani not only refused – he doubled down on his remarks.
“The reality is that from all that I can see of this president, all that I’ve heard of him, he apologizes for America, he criticizes America, he talks about the Crusades and how the Christians were barbarians – leaves out the second half of the sentence, that the Muslims were barbarians also,” the former NYC mayor said.… Continue Reading
The only limit on the president’s power that he recognizes is political expediency.

President Obama is an Alinskyite.
That assertion is not an epithet — well, not primarily. True, I would not describe someone I admired as an “Alinskyite.” Saul Alinsky was a loathsome figure — a radical statist who whose toxic brew of thoroughgoing deceit and brass-knuckles extortion (“direct action”) has become a part of mainstream politics. But in tying the president to the seminal community organizer whose theories and tactics so influenced him, my purpose is more to decode than to insult him.
Of course, calling Obama an “Alinskyite” draws cataracts of condemnation from the Democrat-media complex — for the same reason that Muslim Brotherhood shrieks of “Islamophobe!” inevitably follow any reasoned, scripturally based discussion of Islamic supremacism.… Continue Reading

An author and political activist says the Democratic Party is clearly controlled by far left-wing radicals who want to create a one-party state.
Recently The Washington Free Beacon obtained some unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and 1960s-era left-wing radical Saul Alinsky. The letters revealed a close relationship between Clinton and Alinsky, who wrote Rules for Radicals, a controversial guide to the ends-justifies-means approach to power and wealth redistribution through community activism.
David Horowitz is a former member of the communist party who has now become a conservative and is the founder and CEO of the David Horowitz Freedom Center.
“The aim of Democrats is to create a one-party state,” he says. “These are totalitarians. They think they know what’s good for everybody and they’re going to force you to follow their plan – and their means are deceptive.… Continue Reading

According to CNN writer John Blake, President Barack Obama is “a religious pioneer” who, in the opinion of some scholars and pastors, is “also expanding the definition of who can be a Christian by challenging the religious right’s domination of the national stage.”
To be candid, and with due respect to the office of the president, Obama should be viewed as a religious apostate more than a religious pioneer. He has shown an extraordinary disregard for society’s most innocent and vulnerable members (babies in the womb), he has misused the Bible to defend the radical redefinition of marriage, and he has trashed religious freedoms with his health care mandates to the point that groups as disparate as Hobby Lobby and Catholic hospitals are suing the government.… Continue Reading
