VANITY: Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” vs. C.S. Lewis’s “The Screwtape Letters”
8/9/2009 | rlmorel

I just finished reading Rules for Radicals by Saul D. Alinsky earlier this week, and it was one of the most unpleasant books I have ever read. I also think it was one of the most immoral books as well.

I had two people (my brother and a friend) who suggested that I read C.S. Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters, so that has been on my list for a little while now.

As it stands, it was the next book I picked up after Rules for Radicals. I am stunned by the happenstance that led me to read The Screwtape Letters directly after Alinsky’s book.

Most people know by now that Alinsky had a dedication to Lucifer on the earlier copies of his book Rules for Radicals that went as such:

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer

Who’s the narcissist?

Who’s the narcissist? [Begins with an "O"]

-”Barack Obama appears to be a narcissist,” wrote Shmuel (Sam) Vaknin, who’s written two books on narcissism, in July of 2008. “Narcissistic leaders are nefarious and their effects pernicious. They are subtle, refined, socially adept, manipulative, possessed of thespian skills and convincing. [They] lack empathy and are ruthless and relentless.”

-”Narcissism is a defense mechanism whose role is to deflect hurt and trauma from the victim’s ‘True Self’ into a ‘False Self’ which is omnipotent, invulnerable and omniscient,” Dr. Vaknin wrote.

Among the narcissistic traits Dr. Vaknin observed in Mr. Obama are that he:

• subtly misrepresents facts and expediently and opportunistically shifts positions;

• ignores data that conflict with his fantasy world;

• feels that he is above the law;

• craves to be the exclusive center of attention, and

• has a messianic-cosmic vision of himself.

There is a scene early on in the movie Patton, where the feisty general watches the forces under his command do battle with those led by the legendary German Panzer leader, Erwin Rommel.  To prepare for this particular skirmish, “Old Blood and Guts” studied the writings of his adversary, prompting the memorable line uttered in a gravely voice by actor George C. Scott: “Rommel, you magnificent bastard, I read your book!”

Later, the general found out that Rommel himself had not actually been present for the confrontation, but he is comforted by an aid: “If you defeat Rommel’s plan, then you defeat Rommel.”

For a long time people have been asking why Americans are not up in arms, screaming and shouting about their fast disappearing liberties along with the continuous passage of legislation that they vehemently oppose, from the banker bailout, to the cap and trade bill, to Obamacare. Well now they are screaming and shouting – and if the momentum continues to build, this rebellion could the spark to ignite the second American revolution.

PROGRESSIVES THINK THE PROTESTS ARE MANUFACTURED ~ By Jon Christian Ryter

Wall Street Journal writer John Fund wrote an www.opinionjournal.com piece the other day noting that the “…White House is clearly worried about the opponents of its health care plan who are showing up at town-hall meetings with members of Congress. It took an extraordinary step of issuing a three-minute video rebuttal to a Drudge Report item that featured a 2007 clip of Barack Obama supporting the ‘elimination’ of private health insurance over time after a government plan is introduced. Later in the day, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs called the health care protesters a form of ‘manufactured’ anger. Democratic National Committee spokesman Brad Woodhouse went further and called them ‘angry mobs of rabid rightwing extremists.’”

Let’s face it. This is one time the media spinmeisters can’t win the public relations debate. Why? Because those agitated rightwing extremists in “…limes and pinks and Brooks Brothers suits” who showed up at the health care town halls wearing Dockers and short sleeve sport shirts; or dresses, shorts and tank tops and flip-flops represent about 80% of the People of the United States. The protesters, in this instance, were not the minority voices of the voting public, they were the voting public. (And, the White House can’t steal enough ACORN votes next year to overrule the will of the People who clearly intend to fire a bunch of Congressmen and Senators.) Let’s hope they remember they are voting out the idiots who voted for the stimulus bills, and the idiots who nationalized the auto industry, and the idiots who voted for a socialist healthcare bill. Sadly, the arrogant fools on Capitol Hill who see themselves as demigods haven’t yet disambiguated the message from the Tea Parites or the message from the healthcare town halls. Maybe it will translate better when the voters say, “You’re fired!” Isn’t that nice…everyone gets to play Donald Trump next November.

THE STORM UNLEASHED ON AMERICA

On August 7, 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama said that he expected the people who caused the financial and health care mess to be quiet, stand out of the way, and let it be fixed. Well, Mr. President, if you do not want the people who created this mess standing in the way of fixing it, then you, Mr. Obama…and Pelosi, Reid, Dodd, Frank, et all had best step out of the way yourselves because you not only helped engineer the problems that ensured the fiasco…you are now intent on making it immeasurably worse in your drive towards abject marxism.

Abject evil is amongst us. It has been festering for decades and is now rapidly advancing. The American people are awakening to it as a result of the health care plan, the stimulus, the bail-outs, and the coming Cap & Trade and are angry…and tired of being the patsy for all of these marxistic, socailistic, destructive, initiative robbing, liberty destroying, un-American, and unconstituional actions of the DNC, Dems, left, MSM, and RINOs.

Something is going to give, and so help me God, it will not be the liberty, constitution, and way of life my forefathers sacrificed their life’s blood for.

National Guard asked to explain ‘internment’ jobs

Campaign recruiting for workers at ‘civilian resettlement facility’

An ad campaign featured on a U.S. Army website seeking those who would be interested in being an “Internment/Resettlement” specialist is raising alarms across the country, generating concerns that there is some truth in those theories about domestic detention camps, a roundup of dissidents and a crackdown on “threatening” conservatives.

Are you an enemy of the state? Get the bumper sticker that lets everyone know you have no apologies for being right!

The ads, at the GoArmy.com website as well as others including Monster.com, cite the need for:

“Internment/Resettlement (I/R) Specialists in the Army are primarily responsible for day-to-day operations in a military confinement/correctional facility or detention/internment facility. I/R Specialists provide rehabilitative, health, welfare, and security to U.S. military prisoners within a confinement or correctional facility; conduct inspections; prepare written reports; and coordinate activities of prisoners/internees and staff personnel.

Way back in the 50s/60s the radio/tv preachers warned about the new jungle moosic that was taking over and transforming the populace into the beatniks and hippies that are mostly history now—Manson still in the slammer, others in rocking chairs in nursing homes and asylums, most long overdosed and on a slab at morgues everywhere—but their hippy offspring are now in control….and the jungle beat goes on, doesn’t it!

A member of the Charlottesville School Board is proposing that a framed picture of President Barack Obama be placed in all of the city’s public schools, as well as the division’s central office.

None of Juandiego Wade’s colleagues was quick to jump on board with his proposal at Thursday’s meeting, nor did any members dismiss it.

Wade insisted that if the proposal were approved, he’d raise the money for the pictures and frames — which he believes can be obtained for free or very little money — through a private fundraising campaign.

“It would be no cost to the school system,” Wade said after the meeting, noting that Obama is an inspirational figure to students and faculty.

Board Chairman Ned Michie echoed thenotion that, “there’s no question that he’s an inspiring [person],” adding, however, that if a picture were hung of Obama, the same honor would have to be given to future presidents.

School Board member Colette Blount shared the sentiment.

“I think it sets a precedent,” Blount said.

STOP THE STIMULUS! 90% HASN’T BEEN SPENT. LET’S KEEP IT THAT WAY.

STOP THE STIMULUS! 90% HASN’T BEEN SPENT. LET’S KEEP IT THAT WAY.
NY Post ^ | August 9, 2009 | Casey B. Mulligan

Posted on Sunday, August 09, 2009 5:42:15 AM by Scanian

In February, the President signed a “fiscal stimulus law” to supposedly “create or save” millions of jobs. If executed according to plan, the bill will cost $789 billion, or about $2,600 for every American, and this does not even count the extra economic harm when our government levies the taxes to pay for it. Fortunately, almost 90% of the government spending planned by the law has not yet occurred — which means that it can, and should, be stopped.

The economy has been in bad shape. Employment has fallen for a year and a half now. Real GDP has dropped four straight quarters. Many statistics show the obvious — that this recession is worse than those in recent memory.

But the spending of our political leaders — including the $700 billion bank bailout and the $789 billion stimulus — is totally out of proportion, not to mention counterproductive.

Over the past four quarters, real GDP has been $655 less per person than it was in 2007. That’s a lot by comparison to previous recessions, but it makes no sense to spend thousands per person to attempt to partially fix a few hundred dollar decline.

Even if the Obama Administration were right that the stimulus law would “create or save” three to four million jobs, that means each job costs the Treasury $215,000! The best case scenario for the stimulus law gives us results that are miniscule compared with the costs. In the worst case scenario, we actually pay money to further harm an already struggling economy.

Say what you want about Bill O’Reilly, but he never shies away from surprising people. Take this weekend’s upcoming Parade magazine, in which the Fox News host writes a lengthy column headlined, “What President Obama Can Teach America’s Kids” (first reported by Politico).

This is just about as glowing as any profile of Barack Obama written by a fawning lefty. But there’s nothing like seeing it in print to get the full impact. The Fox News host, surrounded by children of various races, writing about our liberal, Democratic President. It’s enough to make Keith Olbermann throw up a little in his mouth.

Jerone Corsi, Ph. D. is about to drop another bombshell, casting further doubt on the stories of President Obama’s birth.

Dr. Corsi, whose doctorate is from Harvard, is an excellent researcher and investigative journalist. He was the driving force behind the Swift Boat veterans telling the truth about War Phony John Kerry. He is also the author of “Obamanation.”

In his latest research, to be splashed on WND early next week, Dr. Corsi will reveal that he has documentary evidence that the mother of Barack Obama Jr., Ms Stanley A. Durham-Soetoro, began evening classes at the University of Washington in Seattle on August 19, 1961. This is just 15 days after she supposedly gave birth to President Obama in Hawaii.

Obama Tells US Citizen Opposition to Shut Up–or Else

Obama Tells US Citizen Opposition to Shut Up–or Else

Showing once again that he is no statesman–let alone President of the United States–Dictator-in-Chief Obama told his Union thugs to “get out there” and fight back against any and all US citizens who oppose both him and his programs. So, at Town Hall meetings in both Tampa, FL and St. Louis, MO they did. In Tampa, Randy Arthur was shoved up against a wall by purported SEIU thugs resulting in Arthur suffering chest injuries and a ripped shirt. At the same meeting, a Democrat Party official–Karen Miracle–was photographed assaulting Barry Osteen who had disagreed with Miracle’s husband on ObamaCare.

Note: Obama has now advised his rent-a-thug groups to attack anyone who disagrees with him and to then say it “was the other side’s fault” for expressing opposition to the soon-to-be-US-Emperor. This is also the same Dictator and Usurper Obama who said of US citizens opposing him: “If they bring a knife to this fight, we bring a gun!” Please also note that Obama is the only one who has called for violence. Obama now sounds more like a gang member than even a community organizer. And this is the “leader” who represents the USA to foreign powers? continued …
