The Obama administration uses the same tactics over and over again to neutralize its critics. They are the Saul Alinsky tactics in “Rules For Radicals.”
President Obama has recieved critcism for he ideas and implementation of healthcare policy, education policy, foreign policy, energy policy, military policy and constitutional policy.
Last weekend I was asked to republish the summary of Alinsky’s tactics as a reminder to my readers.
These tactics will be used over and over again in this election year. They should be understood so that when used they are recognized.
It is suddenly relevant to republish the blog post as President Obama exchanged five imprisoned Taliban leaders for one American soldier.
A key point is that President Obama did not notify congress of the prisoners exchange as he was required by a law passed last year. He signed the new law.
The five Taliban leaders are terrorist devoted to the killing of Americans.
A second key point is many of the soldiers in Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s platoon have accused him of being a deserter and a terrorist.
I am not sure Americans will ever know the truth.
However, the Obama administration’s Saul Alinsky tactic machine has started its work to disceidit these soldiers.
The administration have begun to criticize and accuse the troops in the platoon of being liars in an attempt to marginalize, personalize and freeze their testimony. The goal is to polarize the audience’s opinion by creating uncertainty and invalidating his follow soldiers testimony.
The front page of the New York Sunday Times has been used as the messanger. “Bergdahl Was in Unit Known for Its Troubles”
"The platoon was, an American military official would assert years later, “raggedy.”
"They were known to wear bandannas and cutoff T-shirts."
" Beau Bergdahl was a misfit soldier in something of a misfit platoon that stumbled through its first months in Afghanistan. It might have made it too easy for him to walk away, as his fellow soldiers say he did."
The New York Times story ommitted the fact that the military had these troops sign a non-disclosure agreement.
My February 23 2014 blog contains a summary of the Alinsky tactics. It also includes a debate between Dinesh D’Sousa and Bill Ayers at Darthmouth College in January 2014.

“Last week a reader sent me the link for the full debate between Dinesh D’Souza andBill Ayers at Dartmouth College on January 30 2014.
Dinesh D’Souza wrote, directed and produced 2016:Obama’s America in 2012’
It is based on D'Souza's book The Roots of Obama's Rage (2010). Through interviews and reenactments, the film compares the similarities of the lives of D'Souza and PresidentBarack Obama as D'Souza presents his theory of how early influences on Obama are affecting the decisions he makes as president.
The film has grossed over $33.45 million in the United States, making it the fourthhighest-grossing documentary (domestically) since 1982.
Those who didn’t see documentary can see it here for free.
Recently Dinesh D’Souza has been the subject of a recent IRS probe.
I had read about the debate but never had the time to listen to Bill Ayers. Bill Ayers is an American elementary education theorist and a former leader in the counterculture movement that opposed U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.
He is known for his 1960s radical activism as well as his current work in education reform, curriculum, and instruction. In 1969 he co-founded the Weather Underground, a self-described communist revolutionary group that conducted a campaign ofbombing public buildings (including police stations, the U.S. Capitol Building, and the Pentagon) during the 1960s and 1970s in response to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.
He is a retired professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago. President Obama worked with and for in the 1980s and 1990s as a community organizer.
A reader sent me a link to the debate last week and I watched it. It is a worthwhile use of your time.
Obamacare cannot work improve the healthcare system. After listening to Bill Ayers and rereading Saul Alinsky’s thoughts on how to create a socialist state President Obama’s only goal is to control healthcare. If you control healthcare you control the people.
According to Saul Alinsky there are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a socialist state.
"The first is the most important.
1) Healthcare — Control healthcare and you control the people
2) Poverty — Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
3) Debt — Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
4) Gun Control — Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.
5) Welfare — Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).
6) Education — Take control of what people read and listen to — take control of what children learn in school.
7) Religion — Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.
8) Class Warfare — Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.'

President Obama is using these tactics to control our country and drive it into being a socialist state.
President Obama combines these tactics with Alinsky’s rules for radicals.
Alinsky’s third rule is: “Wherever possible go outside the experience of the enemy.” Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat. He did this to Mitt Romney during his re-elections. Mitt Romney’s people did not know how to handle it.
The fourth rule is: “Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. “ You are free to act as you wish.
You can kill your opponent with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.
The fifth rule: “Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.” It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.
How many times have we seen the President and Vice-President try to ridicule their opponents? They use this rule often in domestic policy but are afraid to use it in foreign policy.
The eighth rule: “Keep the pressure on, “with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.
“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Doesn’t this sound familiar?
The ninth rule: The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.
The eleventh rule : If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside; this is based on the principle that every positive has its negative.
The twelfth rule: The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative. You cannot risk being trapped by the enemy in his sudden agreement with your demand and saying "You're right — we don't know what to do about this issue. Now you tell us." President Obama is asking Republicans for constructive alternative that he ignores.
If one studied the lies President Obama has told the public he has gotten trapped by his own pressure on his opponents and could not escape or change the subject.
I will have the most transparent administration in history. It is not transparent at all.
TARP is to fund shovel-ready jobs. He finally had to admit the jobs were not shovel ready.
I am focused like a laser on creating jobs. Each month job growth was less which is the goal of a socialist society.
The IRS is not targeting anyone. Each cover up statement makes the lie worse.
If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, period. This was never the intent.
Benghazi was a spontaneous riot about a movie. Something very bad went wrong here.
If I had a son… T Martin. Stirring racism. It was a mistake.
I will put an end to the type of politics that "breeds division, conflict and cynicism".This was never the intention.
You didn't build that! This was an attempt to make Americans uncertain about their achievement and way of life. It failed and President Obama’s credibility shrank even further.
I will restore trust in Government. All the obvious deception during President Obama’s times President Obama contradicts this statement.
However a good offense is many times the best defense. He tried but failed. Attacking FOX News is was not a good strategy as his credibility waned.
The public will have 5 days to look at every bill that lands on my desk. He never kept his word.
It's not my red line — it is the world's red line. You cannot step away from your commitments when people are depending on you.
Whistle blowers will be protected in my administration. This is another lie and empty promise.
We got back every dime we used to rescue the banks and auto companies, with interest. This is an outright lie. He could not control the auditors.
I am not spying on American citizens. This is a beauty!
Obamacare will be good for America. It has been very bad for America. It is going to get worse because Americans do not trust President Obama anymore.
Premiums will be lowered by $2500. Premiums have increased and taxes have been increasing. It has cost Americans much more that the $2,500 they were suppose to save.
People making less than $250,000 a year will not pay one dime more in taxes. This is totally untrue as the middle class is learning..
If you like it, you can keep your current healthcare plan Lie of the year.
It's just like shopping at Amazon. President Obama should have tried himself. I did it and it was tedious. If Amazon was like it I would never use it.
I knew nothing about "Fast and Furious" gunrunning to Mexican drug cartels. You should have known everything. You are President. If you didn’t know about Fast and Furious you were not doing your job.
I knew nothing about IRS targeting conservative groups. You should know everything about IRS targeting. Who would make that decision?
I knew nothing about what happened in Benghazi. You should know everything about Benghazi. It was reported to you instantaneously according to your own defense department. None of this is very transparent.
"I, Barrack Hussein Obama, pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America."
In the light of Bill Ayers philosophy and in light of President Obama’s attacks on the constitution and the Bill of Rights, one could question if President Obama meant his pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.”
Medical care in America is being destroyed methodically by the use of Alinsky tactics. The physician-patient relationship is almost gone.
We will only know the effect these tactics have had on America after they have destroyed our institutions and our moral fabric unless we start understanding what is happening right now and demand that it stop.
