Obama using Alinsky to Trap himself

On Today’s show…

We’ve been told that Barack Obama is a master at the Saul Alinsky strategy. Alinsky’s son David said, “Obama learned his lesson well” during the Obama’s 2008 Presidential campaign. All that may be true but as someone who dedicated his seminal work to Lucier, the strategy necessarily must have inherent flaws.

We’re beginning to see them through Obama.

Alinsky believed in using mis-direction and distraction when trouble reared its head. In today’s terminology, he believed in flooding the zone with chaos to avoid culpability, instructing his followers to, “use different tactics and actions and use all events of the period for your purpose”.

The VA scandal and #BringBackOurGirls / Boko Haram are stealing headlines from Benghazi and the IRS scandals. In the VA scandal, it’s bad but it’s still early enough where Obama cannot be seen as the face of it yet; Eric Shinseki can be. With Boko Haram, there is more focus on a terrorist group the Hillary Clinton State Department had no interest in when she was Secretary.

As was the case with the IRS scandal, shifting focus away from Benghazi to the IRS scandal actually got the ball rolling on another scandal while the other did not go away. When the media followed the IRS story, it made matters worse for the administration.

We could be witnessing the same thing happening with the VA scandal.

    There are still far too many people that don’t realize that they are being deceived. Liberals are truly insane and younger people are too busy with entertainment. “News” for the most part is actually leftist PR. And the POTUS laughs and gives everyone the middle finger.

      Hitler used sports. teddy Roosevelt warned specifically against the all consuming distraction of sports

      Amen to that! My question is, are they really that ignorant, or do they just hope it’ll go away? Just unbelievable!

    I’m a veteran living in Oregon. I had plenty of complaints twenty years ago with the VA, but that’s all changed. I’ve had excellent treatment from the VA here for years. I would say it’s a regional problem, not a national one. The Oregon Department of Veteran’s Affairs does an outstanding job. Unfortunately, a few bad apples spoil the whole bunch.

    Alinsky is a Marxist satanic idiot and so is his student Obozo,

    The one thing that Alinsky and Obama will never be able to overcome and that is “The Truth” when it comes to Light. That day is coming and when it hits it will not be pretty.

      Yep. Pride goes before the fall.

    Interesting, Ben mentions how the women are treated in muslim countries. WHERE THE HELL IS THE FEM-NAZI OUTRAGE IN AMERICA?! No where, because feminism, american style is a pile of phony crap. They don’t care about the “treatment” of women anywhere if they are Christian, and not lesbian. Anything the left is involved is based on deceit. Remember, every time a liberal speaks they are lying.

    Maybe this administration will turn out to be to smart for their own good. Lets hope so.

    People, start using Alinshy on Obama…Ridicule should be our tool…

    Obama is so stupid ….he thinks he’s supposed to kill our Vets instead of Al Qaeda

    If the ridicule catches on..and a national conversation of ridicul ensues…well then-the Muslim is appropriately HOG-TIED….please join in and post an “Obama is so stupid–…” This may be an incredibly effective use of the web and Alinsky. Please join in as these appearing everywhere will be deliciously disarming and informative to the LoFo world.

    May it be so. Amen.
