I don’t know if Donald
Trump ever read “Rules for Radicals,” but in many ways his presidential campaign
is embracing Saul Alinsky’s strategies/methods against Alinsky’s protégé,
Consider this advice from Alinsky and tell me if it rings
“The job of the organizer is to maneuver and bait the establishment so
that it will publicly attack him as a ‘dangerous enemy.’”
“The word ‘enemy’ is sufficient to put the organizer on the side of the
people, to identify him with the Have-Nots…
A common refrain from the Trump campaign: I’m with you,
she’s with the old guard.
“…but it is not enough to endow him with the special qualities that
induce fear and thus give him the means to establish his own power against the
Clearly the Washington, DC establishment - including the GOP
establishment - perceive Trump as a powerful opponent.That
perception has fueled his grassroots movement.
“Here again we find that it is power and fear that are essential to the
development of faith.”
If the faithful didn’t have faith that Trump was powerful
enough to actually prevail against the establishment, his campaign never would

“This need is met by the establishment’s use of the brand ‘dangerous,’

find it hilarious that every time she and the Trump-hating media call him *dangerous*,
they’re helping to GROW his support, not diminish it.
Alinsky recalled an incident when he went to speak and
organize in Chicago’s black community and the press attacked him for it.
Alinsky notes that the “hysterical reaction of the
establishment” validated his “credentials of competency” and also ensured
popular support among the masses.Indeed
the reaction in the black community, according to the author, was…
“The way the fat-cat white newspapers are ripping the hell out of
Alinsky, he must be all right!”
So you go, CNN and CBS. Keep it up New
York Times and Washington Post. You’re being “Alinsky’ed” by Trump and don’t
even know it.I’m feeling a 57-state sweep in
Jon Ralston Vomits Up Another “Manufactured” Scandal that
(Chuck Muth) - If there’s a more dishonest “journalist” and
bigger liar than liberal blogger/YouTuber Jon Ralston, I don’t know who
Ralston went on another of his patented Ralston Rants over
the weekend, creating out of whole cloth a fabricated “scandal” that was
based on nothing more than his blind, venomous hatred of two Republican Party
Frankly, he – as well as Channel 13 in Las Vegas and
the Reno Gazette-Journal – probably should be sued for slander over this
one. Or is it libel? I can never remember the difference.
Anyway, if you enjoy seeing Blogger Jon get caught lying
through his partisan, hate-filled teeth, you won’t want to miss this one.
