Frances Fox Piven breeches- not done with us yet

Just when you thought she must have given up the ghost, she rises again. I caught this video over the weekend, out there, rallying up the troops. Those out there who have been following the Conservative blogs, know this so called “uprising” was a planned orchestrated endeavor. So here she is, in all her glory making her appearance over the weekend. Sadly, most who are out there haven’t a clue that they are being played by the very people they may have a beef with. Although, it is not clear who it is for many.

FRANCES FOX PIVEN: “I teach at the Graduate School of the City University of New York. I am here because I am so enthusiastic about the possibilities of this sit-in, over the marches that are occurring over postal worker issues, the sister demonstrations that are starting in Chicago and Los Angeles, and maybe in Boston. I think we desperately need a popular uprising in the United States. None of us know. I study movements. None of us know the exact formula for when those movements erupt, but it could be. And if that is true, then these people who are here are really wonderful. I would do anything to help them.” (TV Show: “Democracy Now!”)

Back in January, we posted her M.O.. It is working out perfectly:

She’s considered by many as the grandmother of using the American welfare state to implement revolution. Make people dependent on the government, overload the government rolls, and once government services become unsustainable, the people will rise up, overthrow the oppressive capitalist system, and finally create income equality. Collapse the system and create a new one. That‘s the simplified version of Frances Fox Piven’sphilosophy originally put forth in the pages of The Nationin the 60s.

In a chilling and almost unbelievable editorial again in The Nation (”Mobilizing the Jobless,” January 10/17, 2011 edition), she calls on the jobless to rise up in a violent show of solidarity and force. As before, those calls are dripping with language of class struggle. Language she and her late husband Richard Cloward made popular in the 60s.

“So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations, sit-ins and unruly mobs?” she writes. “After all, the injustice is apparent. Working people are losing their homes and their pensions while robber-baron CEOs report renewed profits and windfall bonuses. Shouldn’t the unemployed be on the march? Why aren’t they demanding enhanced safety net protections and big initiatives to generate jobs?” [Emphasis added]

“[B]efore people can mobilize for collective action, they have to develop a proud and angry identity and a set of claims that go with that identity,” she writes. “They have to go from being hurt and ashamed to being angry and indignant.”

And along with anger must come a denunciation of personal responsibility. Instead, workers must realize that others have put them in their current, uneasy situation: “[T]he out-of-work have to stop blaming themselves for their hard times and turn their anger on the bosses, the bureaucrats or the politicians who are in fact responsible.”

Only then, once their rage has been properly stoked, can the angry take action. And when they do, sh says, the “protesters need targets.” Read more here from the Blaze

United States own ‘Arab Spring’ coming our way

Questioning with Boldness “Days of Rage coming to Wall Street this September” has done an outstanding piece on what is headed our way. Recall Al Gore and his call to arms? That we needed our own Arab Spring?  I had done a number of posts earlier on the names and faces of those who were behind the unrest in the Middle East.  Questioning picks up the story with the same cast of folks and more:

It’s about the riots in London and how they connect to the future of America. Well, we now know that many of the rioters are striking out at to “show the rich that we can do what want.” Does anyone really need me to inform you of who those rioters are? Do you still think that this stuff won’t happen here?

Earlier post of mine in June James Carville: Civil unrest is immniently possible

Questioning with Boldness:

Coming to Wall Street this September… A website has been set up for a U.S. Day of Rage. With links connecting them to the European Revolution website, let the dots start falling into place. On the website for the European Revolution, they define their Mission as:

“We are an informative platform in English that aims to support the ongoing pro-democracy protests throughout Europe. We believe in alternative and independent media, net neutrality, real participatory democracy, active citizenship and the common ideals put forth by the first protests in Spain. We understand this revolution is made up of global citizens facing global issues, therefore, one of our goals is to create a net of volunteers and activists from around Europe to fight for our common goal.”

Bunkerville did an excellent exposé on the people behind the uprisings and specifically how it was tied directly to our State Department. In their report, the group identified as April 6 was created from an organized “summit” in Mexico City titled “Alliance of Youth Movements Summit”. This summit was even detailed on our own State Department website HERE.

However, the historic relevance of the “Revolutionary Youth Movement” doesn’t end in 2009 with our State Department and Hillary Clinton… it goes all the way back to the 1960s in America. From Wikipedia:

“The Revolutionary Youth Movement (RYM) was the section of Students for a Democratic Society that opposed the Worker Student Alliance of the Progressive Labor Party. Most of the national leadership of SDS joined the RYM in order to oppose PLP’s party line and what they alleged to be its attempted takeover of the SDS leadership structure, particularly at the 1969 SDS convention in Chicago.

Civil Unrest is Immniently possible -James Carville

I caught James Carville on Imus and found a vid of his comments regarding the Economy. It is in the last 15 seconds of the clip that he talks about Civil unrest. So looks like he is the town crier who is starting the drumbeat of “Civil unrest”. Clear to me, this is the agenda. Does Obama really want to create jobs? There is nothing in his actions or policies that indicate that. No to oil drilling, EPA regs out the kazoo. Bankrupting the country. I will go out on the limb. Soon, very soon the agitation will begin. Remember Ms Piven? Where is the Anger? The demonstrations?

Ms Frances Fox Piven who wrote “Mobilizing the Jobless,” 

This fusillade was evidently set off by Piven’s recent Nation editorial calling for a mass movement of the unemployed [“Mobilizing the Jobless,” January 10/17]. But Beck has had Piven in his cross-hairs for some time. In the past few years he’s featured Piven, along with her late husband, Richard Cloward, in at least twenty-eight broadcasts, all of which paint them as masterminds of an overarching left-wing plot called “the Cloward-Piven strategy,” which supposedly engineered the financial crisis of 2008, healthcare reform,Read more: The Nation Editorial

Who is Frances Fox Piven?

There is a wonderfully written piece over at the American Spectator. I had come across the Cloward-Piven writings at some point in my earlier life. I had really thought that both of them were long gone. As is well-known by now, Glenn Beck gave Fran her second wind. I have posted a number of her recent vid rants. But who were these characters and what were their lives about? I can’t do the article justice by picking a few salient paragraphs, so if you are as curious as I.. take a spin and read the whole thing. Also dispelled is the notion that slavery caused the single parent black family.Here is a link to the Nation article that started this reincarnation.

From the Nation: Mobilizing the Jobless that Glenn Beck quoted. Here tis from the American Spectator:

To me it’s almost startling to find they are real people — just as Piven, who is now receiving death threats for her writings, must be astonished to find there are actually people out there paying attention to what she has to say.

n 1966 Cloward and Piven had married and moved on to write “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty,” the article in The Nation that 45 years later has captured Glenn Beck’s attention. Cloward and Piven suggested a simple, if cynical, strategy for “ending poverty.” The welfare law — the notorious AFDC (Aid to Financially Dependent Children) — was filled with special allowances for furniture, clothing, and back-to-school expenses that nobody ever claimed. Millions of people were eligible for welfare but never applied. All you had to do, after all, was have a baby out of wedlock. Many states refused to apply these laws while others kept them hidden from applicants. But a full-scale national effort to get everybody signed up for welfare would bankrupt the system, paving the way — in good Marxist fashion — for something much better. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy,” later expanded into Regulating the Poor (1971), became the foundation of the Welfare Rights Movement, which Cloward and Piven founded in 1968 and whose main accomplishment was to get millions of unwed mothers to apply for government assistance, so that the term “single-parent home” not only entered the lexicon but became a national phenomenon.

Here is an interesting factoid from the author of this piece from A.S…….Herbert Gutman’s The Black Family in Slavery and Freedom and several other books that this pattern can be traced all the way back through slavery . Yet families do form. Eighty percent of the families in Gutman’s plantation records had two parents and the rate of two-parent families among African-Americans living in Harlem in the 1920s was close to 90 percent.

Frances Scott Piven: The Tea Party is all about sex

Don’t I wish!  Fran’s opinion on what the Tea Party is and what it is all about. Problem is, she apparently never attended a meeting. In case you don’t get to the comment section, here is  Questioning with Boldness take on the matter:

If I’m to follow all of her logic…

The ‘sane’ people of the left need to be on the lookout for: Dangerous, angry, rich, old white people who will be running around with a Constitution in their hands and probably talking about the second amendment while they are now trying to get it on with your leg or something.

Francis Scott Piven rings in the New Year by calling for violent revolution

Glenn Beck managed to get a copy of the upcoming issue of The Nation. She may be in for a surprise as to who is prepared to “rise up”. I had thought this fine couple had bitten the dust. Apparently Frances thinks the time has come to speak out once again. Here tis from the Blaze:

She’s considered by many as the grandmother of using the American welfare state to implement revolution. Make people dependent on the government, overload the government rolls, and once government services become unsustainable, the people will rise up, overthrow the oppressive capitalist system, and finally create income equality. Collapse the system and create a new one. That‘s the simplified version of Frances Fox Piven’sphilosophy originally put forth in the pages of The Nationin the 60s.

Now, as the new year ball drops, Piven is at it again, ringing in 2011 with renewed calls for revolution.

In a chilling and almost unbelievable editorial again in The Nation (”Mobilizing the Jobless,” January 10/17, 2011 edition), she calls on the jobless to rise up in a violent show of solidarity and force. As before, those calls are dripping with language of class struggle. Language she and her late husband Richard Cloward made popular in the 60s.

Is Obama about to forgive billions in mortgage principal?

Yes, the final march will begin in August: A surprise? I think not.

James Pethokoukis hears rumors of an August surprise coming from the White House, one that will attempt to win backs the hearts and minds of voters dismayed at the failing economic policies of the Obama administration.  With the government fully in control of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Barack Obama may issue an order to forgive portions of underwater mortgages processed through the GSEs, where negative equity approaches $800 billion overall.  Some financial houses have begun quietly preparing for the possibility.

Rumors are running wild from Washington to Wall Street that the Obama administration is about to order government-controlled lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to forgive a portion of the mortgage debt of millions of Americans who owe more than what their homes are worth. An estimated 15 million U.S. mortgages – one in five – are underwater with negative equity of some $800 billion… The move, if it happens, would be a stunning political and economic bombshell less than 100 days before a midterm election in which Democrats are currently expected to suffer massive, if not historic losses.

Here it comes: Cloward–Piven strategy:

 Really, how dare we be successful, earn as much as we can. To NOT be on welfare! Now make home owners dependent on the government who become a new class of welfare recipients. Just as planned. Bankrupt our nation. Shame on the industrious, the inquisitive inventors and the giants of our Country.  The penalty is to breakdown the economy by sending manufacturing off shore, make it illegal to utilize our own vast and rich natural resources causing massive loss of jobs, cause more to enter the welfare rolls leaving the impression of corporate greed.  Yes, there is/was corporate greed and should be dealt with appropriately.  But destroy the entire economy?  Cloward and Piven laid the groundwork along with good old Saul Alinsky to “transform” our Country into a Socialistic society so the likes of Soros, Gore can make BILLIONS.  Yes, it all comes together, voter fraud, climate change, Cap and Trade, Healthcare, redistribution of wealth.   

More Here On Cloward-Piven  The Obama Agenda

In other words, it’s exactly the same kind of Obamanomics that we have seen for the last eighteen months — spend what we don’t have now, run up debt like crazy, and hope that a momentary spike will translate into political success.  Unfortunately, that has also been the formula for long-term economic failure.
