Hillary Clinton, Saul Alinsky Correspondence Revealed

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development.

  Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing.  

  Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

  The letters obtained by the Free Beacon are part of the archives for the Industrial Areas Foundation, a training center for community organizers founded by Alinsky, which are housed at the University of Texas at Austin.

  The letters also suggest that Alinsky, who died in 1972, had a deeper influence on Clinton’s early political views than previously known.

  A 23-year-old Hillary Clinton was living in Berkeley, California, in the summer of 1971. She was interning at the left-wing law firm Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein, known for its radical politics and a client roster that included Black Panthers and other militants.”

James O’Keefe Reveals Corruption At The Heart Of The President’s Signature Program

 

 

” James O’Keefe, the guerrilla videographer who helped bring down ACORN (the “community organizing” group that Barack Obama worked for as a lawyer and trainer) and got NPR’s president fired, is back.

This time, his undercover investigators focused on Obamacare’s “navigators,” the nearly 50,000 people who, in the words of the Department of Health and Human Services, “will serve as an in-person resource for Americans who want additional assistance in shopping for and enrolling in plans” on the Obamacare exchanges (at least when they’re finally working). The total value of grants doled out for nonprofits and community organizations to hire navigators has topped $67 million nationwide, and some of the money is going to a group run by ACORN’s highly controversial founder.”

 

   Obama’s cronies from the world of community organizing have merely relocated from ACORN to Obamacare navigation . Here is some of the sage advise offered to the undercover investigator in Texas .

 

“You lie because your premiums will be higher,” one navigator advises an investigator for O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, who tells the worker he sometimes smokes. “Don’t tell them that. Don’t tell ’em.”

 

Here is another gem …

 

” The investigator then poses as a low-income worker at a university who has unreported cash income on the side, worrying about how that might affect his premium subsidies. That’s no problem for a navigator, who says, “Don’t get yourself in trouble by declaring it now.”

“Yeah, it didn’t happen,” another navigator says. One more chimes in: “Never report it.” “

 

   As you can see , the culture of the lie is a mandatory part of Obama’s way of doing business . We are being forced to pay our tax dollars to subsidize bald-faced lies and criminal behavior on behalf of the very authority picking our pocket . You can view the video at our previous post on O’Keefe’s efforts if you haven’t already done so . Be sure and read John Fund’s article in it’s entirety .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obama Quotes Alinsky In Speech To Young Israelis

 

 

 

” In his address in Jerusalem today, President Obama channeled Saul Alinsky, citing the radical community organizer’s defining mantra as he urged young Israelis to “create change” to nudge their leadership to act.

Obama told a crowd of college students at Jerusalem’s main convention center that Israel “has the wisdom to see the world as it is, but also the courage to see the world as it should be.”

One of Alinsky’s major themes was working with the world as it “is” to turn it into the world as “it should be.”

In his defining work, “Rules for Radicals,” which he dedicated to “the first rebel,” Lucifer, Alinsky used those words to lay out his main agenda. He asserted radical change must be brought about by working within a system instead of attacking it from the outside.

“It is necessary to begin where the world is if we are going to change it to what we think it should be. That means working in the system,” wrote Alinsky. “
