Barack Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is
brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing. He is purposely overwhelming
the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social
chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.
Barack Obama is my college classmate ( Columbia University , class of
'83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the
plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University . They
outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with
government spending and entitlement demands.
Add up the clues below. Taken individually they're alarming. Taken as a
whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States
into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately
needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for
bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.
-- Universal health care. The health care bill had very little to do with
health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital
and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents
(who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn't care that giving
free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national
debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30
million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist
revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a
-- Cap and trade. Like health care legislation having nothing to do with
health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has
everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the
economy and a criminal payoff to Obama's biggest contributors. Those
powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC
and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They
will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and
the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new
taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama
"spread the wealth around."
-- Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who's asking for a 51st state? Who's
asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement
addicts in the middle of a depression? Certainly not American taxpayers. But
this has been Obama's plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat
senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters
who are dependent on big government.
-- Legalize 12 million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million
potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and
bankrupt America . But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who
can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion
dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical,
education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.
-- Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat
contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions -- including billions of
dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country.
It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying
union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after
giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion
went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All those public
employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and
pensions that are bankrupting America . The country goes broke, future
generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government,
and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means.
-- Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job
creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers,
redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to
deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes
in order to starve the government. Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes
to starve his political opposition.
With the acts outlined above, Obama and his regime have created a vast and
rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast
privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a
government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as
socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.
Add it up and you've got the perfect Marxist scheme -- all devised by my
Columbia University college classmate Barack Obama using the Cloward and

A marvelous allegory...
Once upon a time I was invited to the White House for a private dinner with the President.
I am a respected businessman, with a factory that produces memory chips for computers and portable electronics.
There was some talk that my industry was being scrutinized by the administration, but I paid it no mind. I live in a free country. There's nothing that the government can do to me if I've broken no laws. My wealth was earned honestly, and an invitation to dinner with an American President is an honor.
I checked my coat, was greeted by the Chief of Staff, and joined the President in a yellow dining room.
We sat across from each other at a table draped in white linen. The Great Seal was embossed on the china. Uniformed staff served our dinner.
The meal was served, and I was startled when my waiter suddenly reached out, plucked a dinner roll off my plate and began nibbling it as he walked back to the kitchen.
"Sorry about that," said the President. "Andrew is very hungry."
"I don't appreciate..." I began, but as I looked into the calm brown eyes across from me,
I felt immediately guilty and petty. It was just a dinner roll. "Of course,"
I concluded, and reached for my glass.
Before I could, however, another waiter reached forward, took the glass away and swallowed the wine in a single gulp. "And his brother, Eric, is very thirsty." said the President.
I didn't say anything. The President is testing my compassion, I thought. I withheld my comments
and decided to play along. I don't want to seem unkind..
My plate was whisked away before I had tasted a bite.
"Eric's children are also quite hungry."
With a lurch, I crashed to the floor. My chair had been pulled out from under me.
I stood, brushing myself off angrily, and watched as it was carried from the room.
And their grandmother can't stand for long."
I excused myself, smiling outwardly, but inside feeling like a fool. Obviously I had been invited to the White House to be sport for some game. I reached for my coat, to find that it had been taken.
I turned back to the President.
"Their grandfather doesn't like the cold."
I wanted to shout, "That was my coat!" But again, I looked at the placid smiling face of my host and decided I was being a poor sport. I spread my hands helplessly and chuckled.
Then I felt my hip pocket and realized my wallet was gone. I excused myself and walked to a phone on an elegant side table..
I learned shortly that my credit cards had been maxed out, my bank accounts emptied, my retirement and equity portfolios had vanished, and my wife had been thrown out of our home.
Apparently, the waiters and their families were moving in. The President hadn't moved or spoken as I learned all this, but finally I lowered the phone into its cradle and turned to face him.
"Andrew's whole family has made bad financial decisions. They haven't planned for retirement
and they need a house. They recently defaulted on a sub-prime mortgage. I told them they could have your home. They need it more than you do."
My hands were shaking. I felt faint.. I stumbled back to the table and knelt on the floor.
The President cheerfully cut his meat, ate his steak , and drank his wine. I lowered my eyes and stared at the small gray circles on the tablecloth that were water drops.
"By the way," He added, "I have just signed an Executive Order nationalizing your factories.
I'm firing you as head of your business. I'll be operating the firm now for the benefit of all mankind.
There's a whole bunch of Eric's and Andrews out there and they can't come to you for jobs groveling like beggars."
I looked up. The President dropped his spoon into the empty cup which had been his creme Brulée.
He drained the last drops of his wine. As the table was cleared, he lit a cigarette and leaned back in his chair.
He stared at me. I clung to the edge of the table as if it were a ledge and I were a man hanging over an abyss.
I thought of the years behind me, of the life I had lived. The life I had earned with a lifetime of work, risk and struggle.
Why was I punished? How had I allowed it to be taken? What game had I played and lost? I looked across the table and noticed with some surprise that there was no game board between us.
What had I done wrong?
As if answering the unspoken thought, the President suddenly cocked his head, locked his empty eyes to mine, and bared a million teeth, chuckling wryly as he folded his hands.
"You should have stopped me at the dinner roll," he said."
