Does ‘No Impeachment’ Fulfill Alinsky’s Rule #4?

imagesOriginally posted at American Thinker

Lately it’s hard to take John Boehner and his Coppertone tan seriously. However, when it appeared that the House Majority Speaker was proactively taking the wind out of Barack Obama’s ‘they want to impeach me’ sails, there was a glimmer of hope that someone on the right had actually grown a spine.

Republicans reiterating that impeachment was not an option exhibited a rare unified spirit. Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) even hobbled up to the mic to reinforce Boehner’s proclamation that impeaching Barack Obama was a talking point that Democrats, not Republicans, were going on about.

Is that a pulse? Could it be that finally, after six long years of waiting, the geriatric wing of the Republican Party had actually mustered the strength to block the president’s desperate effort to divert attention prior to the midterms in November?

Or could it be that Obama’s pathetic attempt to garner sympathy at the expense of Republicans is a Saul Alinsky tactic?

Think about it -– the impeachment chatter on the left may very well ensure that the very thing Obama is accusing the right of wanting to do -– and goading them into vowing not to do it -– will clear the way for the president to do whatever he darn well pleases without obstruction.

After pointedly proclaiming that impeachment is off the table, Republicans will not be able to appropriately respond to impeachable offenses without looking like idiots who can’t keep their word.

Not for nothing, as they say in Brooklyn, but if this is the left’s strategy, it’s downright brilliant!

In Rule #4 of his book Rules for Radicals, Saul Alinsky advises his merry band of Lucifer-loving Alinskyites, one of whom is Barack Obama, to “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” Saul says that after you do, “you can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.”

Here is how the impeachment/no impeachment gambit would work:

Valerie, Barry, and the crew hatch the idea to accuse the Republicans of wanting to impeach Obama, and then they float the rumor that the allegation is just the left’s way of trying to divert attention before the midterm elections.

Responding according to plan, the Republicans crawl to the podium and with a unified front they issue a firm denunciation of impeachment. Pried from his tanning bed, John Boehner proudly calls impeachment talk “all a scam started by Democrats at the White House,” adding, “We have no plans to impeach the president. We have no future plans.”

This smacks of a Saul Alinsky Rule #4 “gotcha” if ever there was one, because John and Mitch may have been abruptly hooked by Barack Obama’s bait.

If they have, from the president’s standpoint this may be a bigger catch than Osama Bin Laden, because it paves the way for what Alinsky advised when he said, “make the enemy live up to its own book of rules” — and that would mean that America loses.

How, you ask, does America lose by Republicans vowing not to impeach?

Easy! After Obama breaks the rules, thanks to their own proclamation, Republicans are now beholden to the rulebook they themselves created.  As a result, this subversive president, against the will of the American people, can now dive without impediment into the impeachable offense of granting amnesty to millions of lawbreaking individuals.

After what looked like an attempt to blow the president’s scam and head off a stealthy maneuver, Republicans may have been majorly conned into tying their own hands, which, if that was the goal, is precisely what the president would have hoped for.

Now, if Obama acts without Congressional approval, if those who said they had no plans to impeach turn around and move to impeach, Barack ‘Alinsky Junior’ Obama is ‘fundamentally transformed,’ in the eyes of the public, into a misunderstood victim, persecuted by a band of bumbling politicians on the right who broke their word.

Either way, Barack Obama wins!

Obama accuses the right of wanting to impeach him, hoping that the Republicans will rush to the fore to disarm the ploy, which they do.

Then the Republicans who thought they were big and butch when they rejected the idea of impeachment are hamstrung by the very rules Obama provoked them into creating.  Now, with the opposition securely hooked through the jaw, by fiat the president can inflict upon America yet another one of his destructive policies.

If all goes according to plan, amnesty will be granted to six million illegals by executive order, and because of an oath that should never have been made, Republicans will be forced to stand helplessly by, thus fulfilling Rule #4 of Alinsky’s radical rulebook.

NO SURPRISE: Pro-Choice Obama Versus Israel

Ob-Net-300x180Originally posted at The Clash Daily

After six years of Barack Obama’s fervent pro-abortion philosophy it comes as no surprise that the left is completely comfortable verbalizing their disdain for Israel and her right to life.

Liberals as a group generally err on the side of evil while attempting to portray their revulsion for everything near and dear to the heart of God as righteousness.

Think about it – Barack Obama attempts to portray murderous MS-13 gang members as “children” requiring care and compassion while insisting that innocent unborn babies are not human beings, thereby sanctioning the exile of 4,000 of them to red biohazard bags a day.

Liberals like Hillary Clinton make excuses for Hamas’s practice of using children as human shields and hiding missiles in schools by saying Gaza is a small territory that lacks the space to hide weaponry. Not to worry, Hillary, rocket attacks eliminating scores of innocents will clear out more room in Gaza!

Habitually the left condemns the innocent to death while the guilty are repeatedly shielded from harm. That sort of perverted perspective is evident as Barack turns his attention from funding the butchering of babies to deciding whether or not Israel has a right to exist.

Lest we forget, Israel, like any human life, is a nation ordained, conceived, and sustained by God. This is what the prophet Zechariah in Chapter 2 verse 8 said – “For this is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘After the Glorious One has sent me against the nations that have plundered you–for whoever touches you touches the apple of His eye.”

Based on the left’s outspoken condemnation and mischaracterization of Israel’s fight to survive, it appears that “the apple of His eye” falls into the same category as the God-ordained unborn babies, “knit together in [their] mother’s womb,” that liberals eagerly abort.

It makes sense that Barack Obama would closely identify with Hamas. After all, Hamas used the concrete the Israelis sent to Palestine for the purpose of building roads and schools to instead build terrorist tunnels into Israel. That is not unlike Barack Obama wreaking six years’ worth of national havoc after burrowing his way through the tunnel of trust offered him by the misguided American people.

It’s simple, really. The liberal way of thinking is diametrically opposed to upholding innocence, supporting democracy, and above all, furthering a Judeo-Christian worldview.

Despite Israel’s past capitulations to their enemies, undeserved benevolence to those who desire to annihilate them, and pleas for support from what is apparently a former ally, by his inaction abortion industry-backer Barack Obama is also tacitly supporting terrorist nations whose goal is to burn, pressurize, and militarily scalpel to death the nation of Israel.

It’s getting to the point where one can rightly discern God’s will by looking at what Barack Obama opposes. In other words, God’s will is the exact opposite of whatever Obama promotes.

The president does not believe in the right to life, but God does. Barack Obama may be fine with the unfettered slaughter of innocents, but the decision to do so will not go unnoticed by his Maker.

Barack Obama can insult, impugn, and reject the Prime Minister of Israel to his heart’s content. But rest assured that just as He said to the prophet Isaiah in Chapter 41:10, the Lord is also whispering in the ear of Bibi Netanyahu, “do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

In Deuteronomy 7:6, God calls Israel a nation of “holy people … chosen … to be a special people unto Himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.” Remember, God made the covenant with Abraham and God cannot break a covenant He made.

That’s why, if Obama tends to identify more with the “wild donkey of a man” named Ishmael, look for the Lord to fight alongside and ultimately exonerate Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Barack Obama may fancy himself a mini-god capable of slowing the rise of the oceans and healing our planet, but in case no one has noticed, he’s done neither.

On the other hand, a Hamas representative told a mystified CNN global network representative that very few people in Israel are injured by their missiles because “Our missiles are accurate and good, but the Name [i.e. God] of the Jews diverts eighty percent of the rockets we launch into uninhabited areas, and the remaining twenty percent are intercepted by the Iron Dome.”

Meanwhile, rather than side with what God has preordained, based on his inaction and veiled hostility, secular socialist pro-abortion Obama seems to commiserate with those determined to abort Israel from the Middle East.

So, as the unborn continue to die at the hands of evil and Israel is despised and rejected by those who desire her demise, again in Isaiah the Lord of Hosts, who ultimately has the last say, promises this: “[no] weapon forged against you will prevail…vindication [comes] from me.”

Moses the Unaccompanied Minor and the Ten Plagues

192837_5_Originally posted at American Thinker

On behalf of illegal unaccompanied minors flooding our southern border, liberals are currently citing Jesus in Matthew 19:14 saying, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”

Using that particular verse is problematic because America is not the “kingdom of heaven,” and regardless of the age or economic status of the children, Jesus would never approve of the type of lawless chaos the left is currently promoting.

Nonetheless, that has not curtailed the sermonizing of Biblical scholar/House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Recently, by quoting the Conference Bishops, a group of Catholic theologians she totally disregards when it comes to abortion, Mrs. Pelosi attempted to portray illegal unaccompanied minors, some of whom are rapists, murderers, robbers, and MS-13 gang members and all of whom are currently disregarding our nation’s sovereignty, as “baby Jesus.”

Assigning the likes of 14-year-old Mexican assassin El Ponchis types “baby Jesus” status is probably considered very apt in liberal circles.  However, the comparison is a bit of a stretch, even for Mrs. Pelosi, who has personally endured quite a bit of ‘stretching’ herself.

With a nod to the Jewish tradition, after covering the New Testament Mrs. Pelosi backtracked to Exodus and assigned the deluge of illegal children rushing our southern border the refugee status she feels was granted Moses, who, like Jesus, escaped death by fleeing to Egypt.

Exodus 2:10 says, “When the child grew older… Pharaoh’s daughter … named him Moses, saying, ‘I drew him out of the water.’”

Leader Pelosi probably views Moses in the Nile as similar to Central Americans being ferried across the Rio Grande by human smugglers.  That’s why, to support the refugee argument, the minority leader said, “What would we do if Moses had not been accepted by the pharaoh’s family? We wouldn’t have the Ten Commandments, for starters. ”

So, according to Nancy, if the Egyptians hadn’t fished baby Moses out of the Nile the world would never have had the Ten Commandments, one of which is “Thou Shalt Not Kill,” a decree neither Mrs. Pelosi nor any of her cohorts consider when butchering unborn babies.

As for the other nine commandments, those on the left typically select which ones to obey the same way they pick and choose from a Chinese menu, which makes one wonder: why is Nancy Pelosi pretending to breathe a sigh of relief that Moses provided 10 directives that she views as optional?

Referencing Jesus, and now Moses, is yet another glaring example of hypocrisy where, in an effort to lend credibility to policies Americans overwhelmingly reject, liberals cynically cherry-pick Scripture they don’t believe in the first place, simply for political expediency.

Based on what she said, it’s apparent that Nancy Pelosi completely lacks spiritual insight and confuses fleshly effort with divine intervention.  Pelosi’s warped analysis of Scripture implies that without Moses, who was mere flesh and blood, an all-powerful God would have been unable to deliver His commandments, proving once again that liberals think people have power over the plans of the Almighty.

Moreover, Miss Nancy’s biblical analogy presents somewhat of a predicament for the illegal immigration argument.  Doesn’t the Scripture-spouting leader know that it was Moses, with the help of Yahweh, who ushered in the 10 plagues that brought Egypt to its knees?

According to the Tanakh (aka Old Testament), Pharaoh’s daughter fished baby Moses out of the Nile.  Then after he grew into a man, he fled Egypt and settled in Midian.  One day, while out tending sheep, Yahweh commissioned Moses to return to Egypt to lead the Hebrew people out of captivity and into the Promised Land.

At the time, Hebrew slaves were ‘doing jobs Egyptians didn’t want to do,’ so in an effort to preserve the economy, so to speak, Pharaoh, with whom Nancy apparently identifies, defiantly refused to let God’s people go.

That wasn’t a wise decision on Pharaoh’s part because it forced Moses, in conjunction with the One who later delivered the Ten Commandments Ms. Pelosi claims she’s so grateful to have, to do a little arm-twisting.  Maybe Ms. Pelosi should err on the side of caution and meditate upon the ramifications of misrepresenting the Word of God or recruiting Jesus and Moses to further a lawless political agenda, because 10 plagues later and under much duress, Pharaoh succumbed.

The curses the Egyptians endured included a list that sounds strikingly similar to some of the pestilences the diseased baby Moses wannabes are currently inflicting on the American people, like bloody water, lice, flies, boils, fire, and as payback, death to the firstborn.

Contrary to Nancy Pelosi’s creative biblical exegesis, Moses was not a refugee, nor was he saved by a band of compassionate liberals.  Moses was an ordained servant of the Most High God whose steps were ordered for eternal purposes by the Lord.  And while Moses did eventually descend from Mount Sinai with the Ten Commandments in hand, before he did, as a result of their rebelliousness, the Egyptian people endured devastating consequences.

So, “for starters,” if Nancy Pelosi insists on comparing America with Egypt and illegal immigrants with the likes of Jesus and Moses, maybe she should reflect on what an unaccompanied minor “accepted by Pharaoh’s family” ultimately wrought on those that provided him sanctuary.
