In the first video we've embedded directly below, a full 7 hour, 17 minute and 59 second audio book of Saul D. Alinksy's "Rules For Radicals" is read and while we certainly won't be sitting back and listening to the entire thing, we ask you to pay close attention to the reader at the 1 minute 30 second mark when he reads the book's dedication to the world's '1st radical', Lucifer.
“Lest we forget at least an over the shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins - or which is which), the very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom - Lucifer.” ― Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals
So within this story, we're going to take a look at Alinsky's '13 Rules' point by point, with links to stories of 2018/2019 that show how Alinsky's rules are being used against President Donald Trump, his 'deplorable' supporters and anybody else who speaks out against the globalists sinister agenda and how one man has turned their 'rules' against them. Also remembering that Hillary Clinton herself wrote her senior college thesis on Alinsky's ideas, we'll be looking at everything unfolding from the viewpoint of Alinsky's rules and everything else we've been witnessing for many years have all been part of the globalists agenda to bring down America from within as also seen and heard in the 1st video at the bottom of this story. First, Alinsky's full book with focus upon the 1 minute 30 second mark.
According to this story from Steel on Steel with John Loeffler that Steve Quayle had linked to on his website on Thursday, "in any tactical scenario, knowing the opposition’s moves and methods beforehand gives an unprecedented advantage." Loeffler's story goes on to outline Alinsky's 13 Rules while claiming "the methods and simple rules found in this simple playbook have been the hidden force behind Progressive Leftist politics and media for the last fifty years."
And while his excellent story outlines that 'hidden force' behind leftist politics and gives us some great ways to respond the next time we are under 'Alinsky assault', his story neglects to mention the leftists 'end game' should they be successful.
According to this new story over at the Washington Post, surveillance technology created by US companies is being used all across the planet to help prop up authoritarian regimes. With a totalitarian police state long unfolding across the planet, and the election of President Trump thankfully putting that agenda on hiatus, we've seen the moves towards a 'police state' under Barack Obama.
And remember! Back in 1977, former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett allegedly wrote about "using the freedom of religion in America against itself". And while snopes calls that quote false, Jarrett also once allegedly stated "After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay."
Yes, that's the same Valerie Jarrett who recently detailed in her new memoir about how close she was to President Obama, how she used to spend 'gossipy evenings' with Barack and Michelle, earning the nickname 'Night Stalker' by colleagues who claimed she'd use her late night meetings with the Obama's to influence American global policy.
As Steve Quayle warns us, "a pack of lies is accelerating and bringing on the Apocalypse." Warning us also that the last real shot at freedom is the free internet, as 'who controls the internet controls the world', the fact that much of the world's population is now living under totalitarian surveillance, with mass surveillance in India almost as bad as it is in China, helps to prove to us the sinister nature of the globalists plans.
So let's take a look at Alinsky's 13 'Rules for Radicals' with linked example's of each behavior now being played out in the world around us, with Rules 10 through 13 receiving extra emphasis as they are the core to their never-ending war upon President Trump. As we see in the graphic above, almost everything that Democrats do is governed by these rules..
1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.“ Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.
Two full years after the election which many Democrats still refuse to accept the results of, 'the left' lectures 'the right' now on every matter, as if somehow they became morally, physically and mentally superior during Obama's 8-year reign of terror over America while attempting to portray themselves as much more powerful than they are. Well forget it, folks, it's not working.
2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.“ It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.
Both Schumer and Pelosi had stepped out of their field of expertise on border security, with Schumer's remarks completely contradicting remarks that he had made just a few years ago while Pelosi has lived her entire life behind one fence or wall or another.
And as the many viral meme's of their speech showed, both Schumer and Pelosi wore the looks of confusion, fear and retreat, as if President Trump had somehow taken away all of their mojo and used their own rules against them.
3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.“ Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.
As mentioned briefly above in a topic that we'll get into much more in rule #4 below, President Trump has turned Saul Alinsky's rules against the Democrats and while they continue to attempt to stymie him and his America-first agenda, he continually throws their own tactics back in their faces.
While Democrats in Congress like to think of themselves as 'experts' in a number of different fields, and certainly they believe themselves to be 'above and beyond' most Americans, President Trump has increasingly found ways to frustrate them and their agenda, absolutely leading to anxiety in the 'deep state' as Lionel nation reports in this linked video.
4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.“ If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.
While Saul Alinsky's book suggests that Democrats "make their enemies live up to its own book of rules", the American Thinker reported within this September of 2017 story that it's none other than President Donald Trump who is forcing the Democrats to live up to their own set of rules, fighting fire with fire and using Alinsky's rules against them. From that story.:
Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals is considered the bible for the left, the Democrat Party playbook. Hillary Clinton wrote her college thesis on Alinsky’s book. Barack Obama is a disciple of this guide for community organizing. The reality is that the “Rules” are applicable to any political cause or movement, not just one on the left side of the political spectrum.
Democrats are adept at using Alinsky’s rules to further their agenda. Many conservatives bemoan the fact that Republicans are unaware of these tactics or are unwilling to use them. Much like a baseball team not knowing they can bunt or run double plays and then wondering why the other team uses these tactics and wins games.
The rules can easily be used by the right too. In Alinsky’s own words, “In this book we are concerned with how to create mass organizations to seize power and give it to the people.” Who else in the GOP might say similar words? Paul Ryan? Mitch McConnell? Mitt Romney? Jeb Bush? None of the above. Only Donald Trump.
Which brings us to:
5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.“ There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
Even well before the 2016 general election we've witnessed the mainstream media apparatus and the entire Democratic party ridiculing President Trump, from the size of his hands to the size of other parts of his anatomy, the left has dipped to the very lowest levels attempting to bring down a man who put his life on hold in an attempt to 'right' America.
And they continue to ridicule the nearly half of America that continues to support POTUS despite the mainstream media using a huge percentage of their coverage of him and his agenda as negative, quite literally slandering the man.
Yet as the American Thinker story also points out, we've also witnessed President Trump using ridicule back against the likes of 'crooked' Hillary Clinton, 'little' Marco Rubio, 'low energy' Jeb Bush while attacking the intelligence of Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, the totally corrupted 'deep state', and the credibility of the mainstream media (especially CNN).
6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.“ They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.
Also capitalizing upon their constituents love of 'free stuff', Democrats have been able to capitalize upon 'state payouts' while turning their supporters into 'sheep' completely dependent upon 'the state' to survive.
'Victimization' and 'free stuff' are two of tactics that the left keep going back to as they are tactics that continually pay off for them, buying them new loyal voters who will continue to vote Democrat while they call anyone who doesn't agree with their ways a 'racist', 'Nazi', Russian-sympathizer or worse.
As long as Democrats and the mainstream media continue to get away with labeling all of their political opponents as 'racists' and their base keep buying into their lies, they'll keep going back to that tactic over and over and over again.
7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.“ Don’t become old news.
Sadly, most Democrats and the outgoing 'establishment' don't yet realize that THEY have become 'old news'. Along with Robert Mueller's never-ending 'witch-hunt' against President Trump that has only led to 'fruit of the poisonous tree' crimes being unearthed, the majority of the American people are ready to hear the investigations results.
With the ongoing deep state coup attempt against President Trump telling us nothing less than that the deep state has no intention whatsoever to honor the results of the 2016 election and the 'will of the American people', we expect that Americans will grow old of the constant war against President Trump and push for a final resolution from Mueller, our public servant.
8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.“ Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.
We see rule #8 perfectly being played out right now in the never-ending crooked-cop Robert Mueller witch hunt against President Trump that continues now despite having wasted millions of American taxpayer dollars for 'nada'.
With the mainstream media also attempting to drum up headline stories that will turn the masses against him, even if their stories are fake news that get debunked a day or two later, the pressure from the msm, the left and the entire outgoing establishment against President Trump may have taken down any other politician already.
9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.“ Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.
The more that the Democrats and mainstream media scream the 'Russia, Russia, Russia' boogeyman, the more their dumbed-down audiences believe that there really was 'collusion' and with their continuous drumming of 'President Trump is a Putin slave', the more the dumbed-down they become. And that is exactly how Democrats want their voters.
As we had reported on ANP just yesterday January 17th, the globalists who've 'hijacked' America have been working to dumb down the American people and completely control us for decades via disinformation, globalist propaganda and now 'big tech' manipulating search engine results, the visibility of alternative content and outright censorship of anti-globalist viewpoints.
How many people on the left now actually believe that President Trump is working for Vladimir Putin and Russia, that all of his supporters are Nazi's and/or racists, that we're all truly 'deplorable' people and that all white people and men are 'toxic' due to Democrats and mainstream media lies? The left should learn "the threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself" and get out of the 'Trump-derangement-syndrome' zone that so many of them are now living within.
10.“The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.
According to this new story over at Politico that the Drudge Report linked to Friday morning, Robert Mueller's Russia-collusion investigation has resulted in a 'circular firing squad' as all of his 'targets' turn upon one another despite the entire investigation being a 'fruit of the poisonous tree' witch hunt.
For two years now, the Democrats have been pushing President Trump as 'corrupt' and under control of Russian president Vladimir Putin despite the fact that it was Hillary Clinton herself who sold US uranium to Russia during the Uranium One scandal.
The constant pressure that Mueller and the Democrats have unleashed upon President Trump and his 'America-first agenda' have absolutely handcuffed him and his administration and we see the fruits of this 'handcuffing' now in the complete shutdown of the federal government, something that many have argued should have happened many years ago and in full.
11. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.“ Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.
Certainly the events in Charlottesville, Virginia back in August of 2017 could qualify as 'violence from the other side winning public sympathy' over to the Democrats after one protester against a so-called 'white supremacist' rally was run over and killed.
12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.“ Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.
According to this new story over at The Atlantic which the Drudge Report linked to on Friday, many Capitol Hill aides are now waiting for the government shutdown to end in disaster with many believing, with both sides dug in, there'll be no way out of the mess created until something absolutely horrific happens.
While their story reports that at the moment, most Americans blame the President for the shutdown, they also warn that shift in blame could happen instantaneously should any number of different worst case scenarios come to pass.
With Nancy, Chuck and the Democrats offering no constructive alternatives to this ongoing problem, Alinsky's rule #12 could soon blow up in the Democrats faces if such a catastrophic event takes place that most Americans blame on them.
13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.“ Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.
And look what they've done to the independent media and anybody and everybody who didn't toe the party line. As we've previously reported on ANP, even many far-left independent media outlets are being 'black listed' for having the courage to speak out and go against the globalists never-ending war agenda.
With Alinsky's tactics perfected by both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton among others, the Democrats really did believe that they'd be successful at winning the 2016 election, keeping Obama's globalist policies intact and keeping America on that long road towards ruin that they'd been pushing us down for decades.
And while President Trump thankfully put a temporary stop to their agenda, we see how perilously close we are to all of that being reversed should the 'deep state' be successful at taking down President Trump.
And should that worst case scenario come to pass in the days, weeks or months ahead, Steve Quayle warns us the darkest days of America will have likely begun. A message to ANP readers from Steve.:
"Everyone should assume when the internet goes dark or blocks all alt media is the time all the A.I. assassination models will kick in and the greatest assassination/murder purge/spree will take place - red list on steroids. Depending on the value of the target, all modes of drones and high energy weapons will be used! Everyone must ditch their cell phones immediately on the first sign of this happening as it will act as a pinpoint targeting device for all technologies".
ANP Needs Your Help. With digital media revenue spiraling downward, especially hitting those in Independent Media, it has become apparent that traditional advertising simply isn't going to fully cover the costs and expenses for many smaller independent websites.
