Alinskyism (Day 13)

Day 13 is about Bill Ayers.   Continuing on, in no particular order, with my reading of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” —since I mentioned Ayers here just yesterday (or the day before), I’ll tell you what I learned about him from Alinsky.

Alinsky says of radical youths (the Greek rioters?) that they are lonely with not knowing the meaning of life (don’t laugh!).   They are constantly on a quest to answer the greatest question, “Why am I here?”    (Now, I told you, don’t laugh!).   I’ve pointed out previously that these radicals, as described by Alinsky, are narcissists with no core values.  They look up to nothing.   They pretend to care about the downtrodden but it’s really all about themselves.

What Alinsky is trying to do is bring about revolution with no one really noticing.   Organizers need to have no core truths and make no judgements.  As such, Obama is the ultimate “community organizer” envisioned by Alinsky—a revolutionary who doesn’t frighten people away.

But,  Bill Ayers did.    Look at this section of “Rules…..”

The young react to their chaotic world in different ways.  Some panic and run, rationalizing that the system is going to collapse anyway of its own rot and corruption and so they’re copping out, going hippie or yippie, taking drugs, trying communes, anything to escape.  Others went for pointless sure-loser confrontations so that they could fortify their rationalization and say, “Well, we tried and did our part” and then they copped out too.  Others sick with guilt and not knowing where to turn or what to do went berserk.  These were the Weathermen and their like:  they took the grand cop-out, suicide.  To these I have nothing to say or give but pity—and in some cases contempt, for such as those who leave their dead comrades and take off for Algeria or other points.

Is that where Bill Ayers spent his years in exile?    I wonder if when Ayers and Obama first teamed up did they discuss Alinsky’s contempt for Ayers’ violence.   With hindsight did Ayers, perhaps having learned the lesson,  teach Obama  how to bring people to a cause by being a blank slate on which they could write their hopes and dreams?

By the way, elsewhere Alinsky condemns radical violence because he says it strengthens conservatism by driving people to the right.

Before anyone demands to know what this has to do with immigration, it has everything to do with it.   Immigrants are the human fodder for the revolution.  You don’t think Alinsky, Ayers, and Obama could bring about the  all important “change” in a contented Norman Rockwell-like town do you?

US News and World Report publishes information on African immigration fraud

Joining the Washington Post yesterday, US News editor and columnist Bonnie Erbe reported on the US State Department’s suspension of the P-3 family reunification program here.

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is not the only one committing a fascinating form of fraud. In a little-noticed move last week, the State Department suspended an immigration program, disqualifying certain would-be immigrants from entering the country. Why? They were committing fraud in massive percentages.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy this story is finally percolating upward to the mainstream media, but wow, it is amazing how long all this takes.   We began our reporting  (this link will take you to all other references to this story) on it in August, but the suspension began last April!

Note that you can comment at Ms Erbe’s column linked above.

Indepth reporting at Frontpage magazine today on missing Somalis

Patrick Poole writing at Frontpage magazine today has pulled together more pieces to the missing Somali men story we first reported here.  Thanks to everyone who sent Poole’s story to me.   He begins:

The funeral for Shirwa Ahmed last week in Burnsville, Minnesota, punctuated a growing national security threat metastasizing inside the U.S. — one Homeland Security and law enforcement authorities have quickly taken note of. Ahmed, who killed himself in a suicide bombing attack in Somalia in October, is just one of up to 40  men from the Twin Cities area who have disappeared and are feared to have returned to their homeland for training with the al-Shabaab terrorist group to wage jihad.

The FBI is investigating similar disappearances in other major Somali communities in Columbus, OH, Atlanta, Boston, San Diego, and Seattle.

Read the article, he has lots of new information.   In conclusion he wonders if the terrorist network, obviously operational in the US, can be unraveled before trained and battle-tested terrorists come home to a city near you.

For several years, the media and Homeland Security authorities have failed to take seriously the terrorist threat that has been growing in many communities. Now stunned by these disappearances in Minneapolis and other locations, they are finally beginning to take notice. Whether these very recent efforts will be able to dismantle the extensive terrorist support network here before the threat rebounds from the terrorist camps in Somalia back to the U.S. remains to be seen.

If you live near a Somali community in the US, let us know if there are recent reports of missing young men.  It’s time to identify them and block their return to the US.

An additional wrinkle in this story about Somali refugees possibly going back to Africa for terrorist training is that many have arrived here fraudulently in the first place.  It is high time the mainstream media puts both stories together, dumping the sob story angle seen yesterday in the Washington Post, so that the public can begin to understand the enormity of this issue.

Mainstream media slooowly catching on to African immigration fraud

Can you believe it, the Washington Post finally reported yesterday on the African immigration fraud and the State Department’s suspension of the P-3 family reunification program worldwide!   Reported in the Metro Section, and entitled “Torn asunder in war, then peace,”  the story is your usual sob story about families that cannot be reunited because the big bad US government isn’t processing their papers.

Read it here.

We have reported on this story extensively here.  The WaPo is inaccurate when it says the program was suspended six weeks ago, the suspension actually occurred in the spring  and was originally reported in the Wall Street Journal here

Refugee advocates are spouting the line they always spout about how the definition of family is different in Africa.

The problem with this scientific and legal approach, say refugee advocates, is that it does not always mesh with the culture in conflicted African countries, where children are often adopted informally, definitions of family are elastic and chaotic conditions often leave orphans or lost children in other people’s permanent care.

None of those commenting mentions a word about possible terrorists getting into the US through refugee resettlement, but this article mentions another aspect I hadn’t thought of, namely slavery and child trafficking.

The problem, they said, is that when DNA does not match, it is difficult to sort through the thicket of family histories and glean the truth, especially in turbulent societies with few government records.

“We are sympathetic, but when people lie about blood relationships, it raises fears that we may be facilitating child trafficking or that people are trying to bring in their servants,” the State Department official said.

This is one sob story in the WaPo that interested me.

Teshaye Teferra, director of the Ethiopian Community Development Council in Arlington County, told of one man who was forced to flee Ethiopia years ago. For years, he faithfully supported the girl he thought was his daughter, paying for her education and sending birthday gifts. But when he applied to bring her here recently, it turned out that their DNA did not match and the case was rejected.

Sounds to me he was planning to bring himself a young honey.   I could be wrong but I believe I read that Teferra is related (brother maybe?) to Niki Tesfai who was indicted last year for defrauding the government and the refugees she was supposed to be helping in Los Angeles.  I don’t know what happened to her case, but to anyone looking for an incredible anatomy of fraud story see this article.
