Too bad it wasn’t Hugo Chavez….and ending up like the Ceauscu’s.

All that Marxism, and nothing to show for it but empty shelves, and highly pissed off people. It’s not that they didn’t have any recent historical examples to warn them from veering off into the socialist hell hole.

It comes days after desperate Venezuelans broke into a zoo and killed a horse for meat as the country’s economic crisis is leaving people starving.

In one video, President Maduro tries to calm the crowd by walking among them but he is shouted at more by the protesters.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke at the National Immigration Integration conference.

In 1993, the president of Wellesley College approved a new rule upon being contacted by Bill Clinton’s White House. The rule stated that all senior theses written by a president or first lady of the United States would be kept under lock and key. The rule was meant to keep the public ignorant about the radical ties of the first lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton, to the radical Marxist organizer, Saul Alinsky. The 92-page thesis was titled, “There is only the fight…: An Analysis of the Alinsky Model.”

The thesis became unlocked after the Clintons left the White House and is now posted online. After being ruled by Barack Obama, another Alinskyite, for 8 years, perhaps one might think the fact that the modern Democratic Party is completely taken over by Alinskyites is old news, but the connection between Alinsky and Hillary is special.

Hillary describes Alinsky as a “neo-Hobbesian who objects to the consensual mystique surrounding political processes; for him, conflict is the route to power.” Alinsky’s central focus, she notes, is that the community organizer must understand that conflict will arise and to redirect it and, as she quoted him in her thesis, be “…dedicated to changing the character of life of a particular community [and] has an initial function of serving as an abrasive agent to rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; to fan latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expressions… to provide a channel into which they can pour their frustration of the past; to create a mechanism which can drain off underlying guilt for having accepted the previous situation for so long a time. When those who represent the status quo label you [i.e. the community organizer] as an ‘agitator’ they are completely correct, for that is, in one word, your function–to agitate to the point of conflict.”

…it could very well be that Hillary’s model, which was to gain political power and wield it to gain social change, is simply her thesis finally realized.

The thesis in and of itself is limited to whether or not “social justice” can be attained through the tactics described by Alinsky in “Reveille For Radicals,” and the numerous speeches he gave on hundreds of college campuses in the 1950s and 1960s. What had become clear was that Alinsky’s previous organizing had fallen apart and almost all attempts to recapture the original intent had gone by the wayside.

Marxists have no problem with being the wealthy elite, and engaging in crony/welfare capitalism.

I’ve named them the ”Neo-Aristocracy”, the original pecking order is still there, people with ample pedigree and wealth still call most of the shots, those without the pedigree are allowed to join as long as they play by the rules. In this heretical post-modern version, however, there is little affinity with the townspeople, they’re to be crushed and remodelled into their liking.


Screw these people……

This is a crony capitalism/marxist redistribution scheme which will enrich the few while the rest are hampered with even more regulations and bureaucrats to oversee it all tagged with prosecutorial powers.

How a Green Climate Change Fund Would Transfer the Wealth of Nations

Delegates from around the world will meet in Paris in December to negotiate an international climate treaty with the goal of reducing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions.

Some countries will push a “green” agenda to increase use of energy resources such as wind and solar, and decrease the use of more affordable, reliable, and efficient energy from coal, oil, and natural gas.

But there’s another clear agenda for most of the developing countries attending the Paris Protocol. And it involves a different kind of green.

Climate negotiations leading up to the Paris conference called for a Green Climate Fund that would collect $100 billion per year by 2020. The goal of this fund: to subsidize green energy and pay for other climate adaptation and mitigation programs in poorer nations—and to get buy-in (literally) from those poorer nations for the final Paris agreement.

It always amuses me how it’s trumpeted as a great surprise to find out full throated marxist politicians have succeeded in ensuring that they’re handsomely taken care of financially.

It’s not an inconsistency, but a matter of fact sense of entitlement. The marxist/socialist movement was always a top down intellectual, pompous, self aggrandizing movement, the ”masses” were never expected to reach levels that they would enjoy. You have to remember every single Marxist state during the last century (even today in N.Korea, Cuba and Belarus) had a very wealthy a ruling class. It’s a throwback to the aristocracy.

SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: How Jeremy Corbyn’s Marxist chum John McDonnell is a secret fat cat

Loony Leftie Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell (pictured) made a song and dance about publishing his income the other day, proudly putting his tax return on display

Loony Leftie Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell (pictured) made a song and dance about publishing his income the other day, proudly putting his tax return on display

  • Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell put his tax return on public display
  • He posted the image showing his income and taxes on his Twitter profile
  • Document wasn’t full story, as it failed to show local government pension 
  • Since the tax period shown, he has also been handed 10% MPs’ pay rise 

Loony Leftie Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell made a song and dance about publishing his income the other day, proudly putting his tax return on display.

The image posted on his Twitter feed showed Jeremy Corbyn’s right-hand man had been paid £61,575 as an MP in 2014-15, and shelled out £14,253 to HM Revenue & Customs.

But the full document, slipped out much later on his website, showed that is not quite the whole story. McDonnell, who read from Chinese communist leader Chairman Mao’s Little Red Book in a House of Commons exchange with Chancellor George Osborne, also received a £14,421 pension from his days in local government.

Since the period covered by the return, he has been handed the 10 per cent MPs’ pay rise, taking his salary to £74,000 per year, and total income to £88,421.

And when he turns 65 in September, he will be entitled to the state pension of £8,000 per year, plus he’ll be sitting on a final-salary Commons pension pot worth up to £35,150 by that date.

So in the year the old Marxist finally retires, he could enjoy a total income of more than £100,000: comfortably enough to put him in the country’s despicable top 1 per cent.

He published his tax return at the end of last month as he challenged Osborne to be ‘open and transparent’ about his own income.

The move came after the Government’s agreement with U.S. tech giant Google to see the company pay £130 million in back taxes covering the past decade. Osborne hailed the deal a ‘major success’ despite disquiet among members of his party.

‘I published my full tax return . . . as I believe if you aspire to be in charge of the nation’s finances, you should be as open and transparent about your own income as possible,’ McDonnell said. ‘Hopefully, it will encourage George Osborne to release the details of his Google tax deal.’

I don’t need a lecture from any marxist (socialist statist) whatsoever.


Leftism (and their neo-statist lackeys) has led to these terrorists and their basic unifying ideology (Islam) to be transplanted into the West. Little marxists should just learn to keep their traps shut.

NOTE: That keeping Muslims out until the US government gets a handle on their immigration system is such a bridge too far for the average Muslim that they’ll turn to terrorism, is exactly why the US needs to stop all Muslim immigration and sort out the system.

Malala Warns America: Trump ‘Will Radicalize More Terrorists’

Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai condemned GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s call to ban Muslims.

“Well that’s really tragic that you hear these comments which are full of hatred, full of this ideology of being discriminative towards others,” she said.

On December 7, the leading candidate suggested “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” The demands came after a Muslim couple with ties to radical Islam murdered 14 people in San Bernardino, CA.

Malala also said his behavior might “radicalise more terrorists” and asked politicians to have “more caution.”

“If your intention is to stop terrorism, do not try to blame the whole population of Muslims for it because it cannot stop terrorists,” she said.

He’s right, and John Wayne and a whole host of late and former Hollywood actors (real Americans) would agree with him.

john wayne quote on stupid

Of course the commies will cry foul and say that they’re not really for full blown marxism, but when have you known communists to tell the truth about their politics? In the end, it’s all statism, which leaves a destructive trail of coercion and destitution as they seek over and over again to create their utopia on stacks of dead bodies and gulags full of rotting prisoners.


Actor Jon Voight describes his decades-long career as a Hollywood conservative in a new interview, where he also discloses he feels the political left uses the term “progressive” as a substitute for “communist.”

“There are a lot of conservatives in Hollywood, and they’re not very welcome,” Voight says in Cigar Aficionado’s December issue, Fox News reports.

Explaining his dismay that actors with patriotic thoughts have a difficult time finding a home in the industry, the actor then takes aim at the left’s use of progressivism.

“I think the word ‘progressive’ is a very devious term. It was created as a substitute for ‘communist,’” he says.

“What they propose is the reverse of progress. It’s some that that does taste of communism and Karl Marx’s pernicious philosophy,” adds the 76-year-old Oscar winner.

Voight also says he thinks it is important for people in need to reach out for help, and that people should be there for others in need, in addition to opening up about his relationship with his daughter, Angelina Jolie Pitt.

NOTE: The Left is very ingenious (in a devious kind of way) when it comes to labeling themselves, their programs and their opposition. They are not ”progressives” however, they’re actually anti-enlightenment regressives, post-modern reactionaries, who would like nothing better than to disenfranchise you from your wealth (property rights) and your liberty.


Sorry to any Catholic readers of this blog, but you’ve all been had.

The late great Pope John Paul II spins in his grave.

Defrock this jackass


Pope Francis today suggested to reporters during an airborne press conference that he is not a left-winger.

“Some people might say some things [I said] sounded slightly more leftish, but that would be a mistake of interpretation,” the Pope said to journalists, according to Time.

But he also suggested that his support for left-wing economic interventions, and his support for traditional Catholic religious doctrine, transcend current definitions of left-wing and right-wing preference.

On economic issues, “It is I who follows the church … my doctrine on all this … on economic imperialism, is that of the social doctrine of the church,” he continued. “I’m sure that I have not said anything more than what is in the social doctrine of the church.”

Let Nigel Farage lead the verbal barrage against him, Margaret Thatcher would wind him (Corbyn) up like a top and send him spinning off the table to her delight.


David Hirsh (a Labour Party member):

“A dreadful day for the UK and especially for Jews with even the slightest affinity for Israel. Corbyn’s association with antisemites is well-known; his economic policies would take the UK in the direction of Greece and Zimbabwe; he has hardly any support from other Labour MPs. In countries with no Opposition, people take to the streets. Labour is out until at least 2030.”

“We have a Labour leader who:
1. Said that the 7/7 attacks were the result of UK creating insecurity around the world
2. Presented a show on Press TV, Iran’s propaganda channel
3. Praised and appeared on Russia Today, Putin’s propaganda channel
4. Is National Chair of “Stop the War”
5. Is a Patron of the “Palestine Solidarity Campaign” which fights for a boycott of Israel.
6. Says that Hamas and Hezbollah are dedicated to the good of the Palestinian people and to social and political justice.
7. Says that NATO is the aggressor in Eastern Europe and that Russia has a legitimate claim over Ukraine
8. Jumped to the defence of antisemites, Raed Salah who indulged in medieval blood libel and Steven Sizer who said that Israel was behind 9/11
9. Is not offended by the suggestion that the execution of Bin Laden and the sentencing of Eichmann are both illegitimate and illegal
10. Does not argue with somebody who suggests that Bin Laden is not dead
11. Does not say anything when a 911 truther who he’s sharing a platform with, defends Palestinian suicide bombing
12. Is pictured, all smiles, with Hugo Chavez
13. Campaigned against Britain taking military action against Assad
14. Campaigned against the RAF giving air support to those defending Kobane
15. Thinks that ISIS is bad in Syria in the same way as the US is bad in Iraq
16. Continued to support “Deir Yassin Remembered” even when it was well known that it was run by a Holocaust Denier
17. Hosted and sat next to on a platform Dyab Abou Jahjan, who believes that the killing of each British soldier is a victory
18. Agreed to speak alongside Carlos Latuff, 2nd prize winner in Ahmadinejad’s Holocaust denial cartoon competition

20. Replies to all these points by saying that they are Tory smears”


Heroes, soon in need of a job.

Obama is a demagogue. A flat out socialist whose impressionable years were shaped by self identified marxists. He surrounded himself during his time in Chicago with the marxist mindset, and many of his cabinet members and advisors have invoked traditional marxist thinking at one time or another. If you don’t like the word ”marxist”, then he’s a bona fide statist with an imperial, dictatorial mindset.

CDC Official Calls Obama “Marxist” And “Worst President We’ve Ever Had” Over Illegal Aliens: “No Country Would Ever Allow This”

« Pat Dollard

Excerpted from Fox News: A federal health official dealing with the surge of illegal immigrants last year at the southern U.S. border ripped President Obama for the months-long crisis, calling him a “Marxist” and “the worst pres we have ever had,” according to newly released internal emails.

The emails, obtained and published by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, show a June 9, 2014, exchange between Centers for Disease Control and Prevention logistics specialist George Roark and agency public health adviser William Adams.

Roark begins by writing: “Unreal, no country in the world would allow this.”

Adams responds: “Well, in ten years or less, they’ll all be voting … Commander’s intent …”

Roark concludes: “It is very clear that is the case. This fellow is the worst pres we have ever had. He truly is ‘the amateur’ but a Marxist, too.”

Roark declined to talk to on Monday, when reached by phone at the agency’s Atlanta headquarters. The CDC has yet to respond to a question about whether the agency addressed the email exchange with Roark or Adams, and whether either was reprimanded or punished.

Judicial Watch said it obtained the emails as part of an investigation into the CDC activating its Emergency Operations Center to deal with tens of thousands Central American immigrants, including many unaccompanied minors, trying to get into the United States at the Mexico border. Keep reading


How about demonstrating against all forms of statism as well? 


This is also in connection with the Immonen Affair, but also in part, due to the handful of rabble rousing Leftist racists called the Finnish Resistance Movement (neo-Nazis). They’re the exact opposites of the radical open borders fruitcakes within the socialist camp. They are all to be denounced, and rejected in their entirety.

NOTE: I’ll be present to check out the signs and messaging of those attending, how much do you want to be that Marx and Lenin and ”Che” will be represented there?

Demonstrating against racism and neo-nazis in Jyväskylä on Wednesday

At the Jyväskylä Church Park on Wednesday there will be a demonstration against the attacks by neo-Nazis last Saturday.

A call for a demonstration was spread on Facebook Monday, which will take place on Wednesday at the Church Park at 18:00. The demonstration goes by the name “We have a dream – a demonstration against racism in Jyväskylä”. The name refers to what Helsinki organized last week ”We have a dream”’ demonstration in which about 15 000 people attended.

Helsinki demonstration started from the The Finns Party MP, Olli Immonen’s comment against multiculturalism. Jyväskylä’s rally against racism and fascism, is also intended to show that the Finnish Resistance activities are not approved in Jyväskylä, Finland. In addition to Saturday’s riot by the Finnish Resistance Movement, it also commemorates the the knifing in the Jyväskylä library in 2013.

The demonstration is politically non-aligned. The event is organized by Facebook’s Together against racism and fascism -organization. By Monday afternoon 4000 were called to the event on Facebook.



But the plundering of wealth of others and butchering those that object, police state, gulags, planned mass starvation, genocide of ”racial trash”, well, that’s alright.

Also, check out the squiggly under the pics of the famous commie bastards. Totalitarians unite!

– This event was arranged on the behalf of love and for equality, which emphasizes the fact that all parties should commit themselves to fight against discrimination, bullying and racism, described the chairman of the Greens Party, Ville Niinistö, who participated in the demonstration. YLE

Yeah, feel that totalitarian love.

Hundreds gathered in protest against racism the city center of Turku

Turku diversity rally coincides with Finns Party meet – Soini says no room for extremists in party

Rasisminvastainen mielenosoitus Turussa.

Several hundred people rallied in a peaceful demonstration against racism in Turku’s city centre on Saturday. The rally was organised to coincide with the Finns Party’s congress meeting in the same city.

The peaceful demonstration began at 4pm on Saturday, drawing as many as 1,000 participants to Turku’s central market square.

By contrast, several days ago the Finns Party announced the cancellation of its own marketplace event, claiming fear of harassment. This public rally, at least, provided little cause for alarm.

According to Yle’s Turku-based reporter Minna Rosvall the atmosphere at the event was positive and non-threatening. According to reports, many overseers were present to ensure the orderly nature of the rally, and Turku’s multicultural immigrant population was well represented.

Soini condemns hate speech in party address

Meanwhile, behind closed doors in the same city, the Finns Party was celebrating its 20th anniversary.

At the party congress, leader and Foreign Affairs Minister Timo Soini was also willing to say a few words on what is currently a hot topic – in his main address, Soini condemned hate speech and said that extremists have no place in the party.

In the same speech he congratulated loyalists on the success of the party, referring to it as “Finnish politics’ greatest success story.”

The leader’s address comes amidst heavy scrutiny on the populist party for a perceived failure to penalize party MPs for racists outbursts or irresponsible behaviour.

The Turku rally was related to the much larger scale “We have a Dream” demonstration. Sparked by Finns MP Olli Immonen’s social media call to arms against multiculturalism, that rally drew more than 15,000 people in Helsinki over a week ago.

Meanwhile, another rally is slated for Wednesday in Jyväskylä, the site of a recent riot by members of a neo-Nazi group with whom Immonen posed for a photo in June.

Labour leadership front runner Jeremy Corbyn today dodged questions about whether he is a Marxist as evidence emerged the left’s leadership race is being warped by a wave of hard-line infiltrators.

There is speculation as many as 140,000 more activists could be eligible to vote in the Labour leadership race than before the general election.

The Communist Party of Great Britain is among the groups that have urged supporters to join Labour and endorse Mr Corbyn. Under new rules, they can pay just £3 and take part in the ballot.

A new poll has found that Russian public opinion towards Josef Stalin has turn alarmingly positive during the tenures of President Vladimir Putin, a leader who has publicly lamented the fall of the Soviet Union and invaded and reconquered multiple regions of various post-Soviet states.

Russians are slowly warming back up to Stalin, who murdered over 20 million of his own people. According to a poll by the Levada Center, up to 45 percent of Russians surveyed answered that the enormous economic progress under Soviet Union dictator Josef Stalin justified all the “sacrifices” made by Russians, including the genocide of his own people. The independent center polled the same question two years ago, but found then that only 25 percent agreed. They also asked people if they thought Stalin’s death ended “mass repression and terror.” Only 46 percent said yes. While that number may appear high, 56 percent answered yes only two years ago.

In a startling new interview, a 3-star general and former head of Communist Romania’s secret police who defected to the United States in 1978, claims that the Theology of Liberation was the creation of the KGB, who exported it to Latin America as a way of introducing Marxism into the continent.

Ion Mihai Pacepa has been called “the Cold War’s most important defector,” and after his defection, the Romanian government under Nicolae Ceausescu placed two death sentences and a $2 million bounty on his head. During the more than ten years that Pacepa worked with the CIA, he made what the agency described as “an important and unique contribution to the United States.”

He is reported in fact to have given the CIA “the best intelligence ever obtained on communist intelligence networks and internal security services.”

“Liberation theology has been generally understood to be a marriage of Marxism and Christianity. What has not been understood is that it was not the product of Christians who pursued Communism, but of Communists who pursued Christians,” Pacepa said in a recent article. In his role as doctrinal watchdog, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger called liberation theology a “singular heresy” and a “fundamental threat” to the Church.

Pacepa says that he learned details of the KGB involvement with Liberation Theology from Soviet General Aleksandr Sakharovsky, Communist Romania’s chief foreign intelligence adviser, who later became head of the Soviet espionage service, the PGU.

In 1959, Sakharovsky went to Romania together with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, for what would become known as “Khrushchev’s six-day vacation.” According to Pacepa, Khrushchev “wanted to go down in history as the Soviet leader who had exported communism to Central and South America.” He chose Romania as his point of export, since it was the only Latin country in the Soviet bloc and provided a logical liaison to Latin America because of the similarity of language and culture.

Pacepa claims that the Theology of Liberation was not merely infiltrated by the KGB, it was actually the brainchild of Soviet intelligence services.

“The movement was born in the KGB, and it had a KGB-invented name: Liberation Theology,” Pacepa said.

According to the General, during those years, the KGB had a penchant for “liberation” movements, and a Theology of Liberation fit right in.

The National Liberation Army of Columbia (FARC), created by the KGB with help from Fidel Castro; the “National Liberation Army of Bolivia, created by the KGB with help from “Che” Guevara; and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), created by the KGB with help from Yasser Arafat are just a few additional “liberation” movements born at the Lubyanka — the headquarters of the KGB.

A quote by Dr.Manfred Gerstenfeld concerning Günter Grass:

“When it was fashionable, Grass was a Nazi. When that became objectionable, he hid his past. He revealed it only late in his life, when little harm could be done to him. When it became fashionable to demonize Israel, he published his lies in poetry form.”

That’s a fitting epitaph for this disgusting creature.

He waited another seven years to explain that he had been a full-fledged Nazi. After lecturing people for decades about how Nazism could only have been prevented by the death of capitalism and nationalism, it turns out that the great human rights activist had fought alongside the most brutal elements of the Nazi regime.


On Monday, German novelist, Nobel Prize winner, and former Waffen-SS Nazi, Günter Grass died in Lubeck, Germany, at the age of 87. The press mourned his passing.

The New York Times tried to make excuses for the fact that Grass hid his involvement with the Waffen-SS for some six decades before finally revealing that fact:

Mr. Grass was hardly the only member of his generation who obscured the facts of his wartime life. But because he was a pre-eminent public intellectual who had pushed Germans to confront the ugly aspects of their history, his confession that he had falsified his own biography shocked readers and led some to view his life’s work in a different light.

Actually, his confession only shocked those who considered him a moral authority in the first place—and they still didn’t find his confession shocking enough to stop seeing him as a moral authority. In 2012, Grass published a poem called “What Must Be Said,” which reads like a screed against the Jews who wanted to strike the Iranian nuclear program:

Why do I stay silent, conceal for too long

What clearly is and has been…

It is the alleged right to first strike

That could annihilate the Iranian people…

Yet why do I forbid myself

To name that other country

In which, for years, even if secretly,

There has been a growing nuclear potential at hand

But beyond control, because no inspection is available?

Why, Grass wrote, did he stay silent? For fear of being slandered with “the verdict of ‘anti-Semitism’” for saying that “the nuclear power of Israel endangers / The already fragile world peace.” Ah, those nettlesome Jews. If only someone had tried to do something about their aggression, say 70 years beforehand. Oh, wait.

Israel rightly banned Grass from visiting Israel afterward based on a 1952 law banning ex-Nazis from entering the country. The Interior Minister, Eli Yishai, explained, “Grass’s poems are an attempt to guide the fire of hate toward the State of Israel and the Israeli people, and to advance the ideas of which he was a public partner in the past, when he wore the uniform of the SS.”

That poem followed years of hard-left activism—Grass’s leftism and former Nazism demonstrate that the two could comfortably fit hand-in-glove—including a campaign against America placing nuclear missiles in Germany, support for the Soviet-backed Castro government and the Nicaraguan Sandinistas, and opposition to the German arms industry backing the first Gulf War. He actually likened arming the West against Saddam Hussein to Nazism:

Only 18 million people underfed. Looks like nirvana has more to accomplish to get that number down, and we already know how they aim to achieve that goal.

North Korean hunger unrelenting, says UN

The United Nations has again highlighted widespread hunger in reclusive nuclear-armed North Korea, saying 18 million people are underfed. The UN report follows more short-range missile firings by the North.

Welthungerhilfe Nordkorea

The UN urged donor nations to give $111 million (103 million euros) in food and other aids for North Koreans during 2015 on Thursday while acknowledging that international sanctions were hampering deliveries.

The UN report released by UN humanitarian chief Valerie Amos said the scale of the need for North Koreans was of “grave concern.”

Seventy percent of North Korea’s population of 24 million, or around 18 million, did not have sufficient nutrition. Nutritious food was needed especially for “approximately 1.8 million children, pregnant and lactating women,” it added.

Potential donors were asked to contribute two-thirds of the $111 million for food and the balance in the form of sanitation, health, and educational services.

More than 6 million North Koreans need essential health care such as vaccinations, the report added.

North Korea’s leadership headed by President Kim Jong-un remains under UN and US sanctions imposed in recent years to deter its nuclear ambitions.

 Obama’s philosophical mentor.


Alinsky was a radical leftist. Of course, he struck the pose of one who eschewed faithful adherence to a particular doctrine; but that is a key part of the strategy. To be successful – meaning, to advance the radical agenda – a community organizer needs public support. Thus he must masquerade as a “pragmatist” rather than reveal himself as a socialist or a communist. The idea is for the organizer to portray himself as part of the bourgeois society he despises, to coopt its language and mores in order to bring about radical transformation from within.

Misreading Alinsky

Rules for Radicals: a strategy for giving the radical left the power needed to win.

Since the year before his disciple, Barack Obama, was elected president, many of us have been raising alarms about how Saul Alinsky’s brass-knuckles tactics have been mainstreamed by Democrats. It was thus refreshing to find an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal this week, by Pete Peterson of Pepperdine’s School of Public Policy, expressly calling out a top House Democrat for resorting to the seminal community organizer’s extortion playbook.

But in the end, alas, Mr. Peterson gets Alinsky wrong.

He does a fine job of exposing the hardball played by Rep. Raul Grijalva, the ranking Democrat on the House Natural Resources Committee. Grijalva attempted to intimidate scientists and professors who fail to toe the alarmist line on “climate change” by sending letters to presidents of their universities. He wrote the letters on congressional letterhead and purported to impose a March 16 due date for a response – creating the coercive misimpression that the letters were enforceable demands for information, made by a government official in a position to punish noncompliance. The missives sought information about the scientists and academics (among them, the excellent Steve Hayward of Pepperdine and Power Line), including whether they accepted funding from oil companies. Peterson adds that the letters were followed up by officious calls from Grijalva’s staff. The abuse of power is blatant and reprehensible.

Peterson is quite right that Grijalva’s “targeting [of] institutions and their leaders is pure Alinsky; and so are the scare tactics.” He goes astray, however, in contending that this leftist lawmaker’s adoption of Alinsky’s tactics “may not fit with Alinsky’s philosophy.”

In essence, Peterson contends that Alinsky’s systematizing of extortionate tactics can be divorced from any particular ideological agenda. He urges, as did Alinsky himself in Rules for Radicals, that the latter’s system was devised for the “Have-Nots,” advising them how to take power away from the “Haves.” Therefore, Peterson reasons, “an existential crisis for [Alinsky’s] vision” arises once the Have-Nots acquire power: i.e., the system is somehow undermined by its own success because the Have-Nots are not Have-Nots anymore.

This overlooks a crucial detail. There is a reason why Alinsky’s self-help manual is called Rules for Radicals, not Rules for Have-Nots.

A woman armed with guns and hand grenades was shot dead as she tried to attack Istanbul’s police headquarters on Wednesday just a day after a deadly hostage situation in the city.

A picture of the red-haired woman lying on the ground with a rifle strapped to her body and a handgun by her side has emerged and television footage showed police sealing off the street in the central Aksaray neighbourhood.

The attack comes a day after Turkish prosecutor Mehmet Selim Kiraz, 46, died in hospital after members of the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C) stormed a courthouse and took him hostage. It is not known who fired the fatal shots.
