Radical Assault on the United States
Almost from the start there have been forces working to tear us under. We have undergone inner conflict before, during and after the War of Independence. After the secret deliberations of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, anxious citizens wondered wanted to know the result.
Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?”
With no hesitation, Franklin replied, “A Republic if you can keep it.”
In the interim we have weathered storms on our homeland and abroad. The French and Indian War, The War of 1812, The Civil War and wars with Mexico have tested our meddle and we have stood the test. Our reluctance to enter world wars caused great controversy among our people all the while we suffered economic downfall, famine and pestilence as well as mob violence on the streets of America.
In the 1930s a little known sociologist, Saul Alinsky, in Chicago became professionally involved with Al Capone’s criminal gang and became close to enforcer Frank Nitti. Knowing that criminals were dangerous, Alinsky blamed the capitalistic social environment of private property and individual rights for creating them.
Alinsky was not a communist, but had a single principle to take power from those who have it and give it to those who don’t. It was the classic redistribution of power and Alinsky was a political nihilist who believed in waging a destructive assault on the established order in the name of the people. This created power for the political elite who felt good about themselves in the process. In 1940 Alinsky had created a number of organizations in the Chicago area. One of these organizations was the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF).
Infiltrating the institutions of American society and government in the 1960s became Alinsky’s modus operandi. Alinsky organizers insinuated themselves into Johnson’s poverty programs, directing federal funds into their own organizations and causes. Alinsky had connections to Cesar Chavez’s United Farmworkers Union, having trained and worked for Alinsky for ten years. After the death of Martin Luther King Jr activists in Rochester, New York called upon Alinsky to pressure Eastman-Kodak to hire more blacks, and a form of racial extortion became a standard of the civil rights movement under the leadership of Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton.
Fast forward to 1986 when 23 year old college graduate Barack Obama became an adept practitioner of Alinsky’s methods in Chicago and was hired by the Alinsky team to organize residents on the South Side. This young man became a very effective community organizer. Soon he became director of the Developing Communities Project and spent 3 years on initiatives ranging from job training, school reform to hazardous waste cleanup and later began teaching IAF “power” workshops.
In 1996 Obama was elected to the Illinois State Senate and served until 2004, then was elected to the US Senate where he served until being elected President in 2008. How could a “rising star” rise so quickly? Alinsky organized gathering a power base. He did so by using factions of various groups without telling them his ultimate end game. They became henchmen or “useful idiots” until he no longer needed them. Obama fine-tuned this process into a community organizing art form that ultimately landed him in the White House where he continued gathering his political power base and turned various government agencies (IRS, CIA, FBI & DOJ) into weapons against average American citizens and political enemies.
Let us go back to the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) which today boasts of being the largest and longest-standing network of local faith and community-based organizations.
The work of the Industrial Areas Foundation flows directly from a commitment to the values embodied in our Abrahamic religious traditions and our democratic political traditions. From these roots, IAF nurtures the growth of varied organizations and relationships that equip families and communities to participate with power in the public decisions that impact their lives.
The measure of IAF’s success is the extent to which its organizations contribute to human flourishing in communities where human development is often devalued and human dignity trampled. These successes, when they occur, take the form of imaginative responses to seemingly intractable problems, new relationships overcoming racial, religious and socio-economic divisions and immediate, concrete victories that change communities for the better and inspire hope in the future.
IAF invests heavily in the identification, training and connecting of leaders whose capacities and skills may be further developed with careful mentoring and challenge.
The Industrial Areas Foundation was established in 1940 by Saul David Alinsky and a Board of Directors that included business man Marshal Field, Roman Catholic Bishop Sheil and Kathryn Lewis, daughter of John L Lewis, President of the United Mine Workers. The mission of the new endeavor was to build from Alinsky’s experience developing the Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council into other communities in the greater Chicago area and beyond.
The Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council was the first “community organization” in the nation and a groundbreaking venture that brought ordinary families a voice in the decisions impacting their lives. As a social entrepreneur Alinsky managed to bridge divisions of ethnicity, religion and political philosophy in the interest of community improvement. As a consequence, BYNC achieved a level of power, local accountability and impact unheard of in Metropolitan Chicago of that time.
The Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) has organized across the United States, Australia, Canada, Germany and the United Kingdom.

AND the Interfaith Education Fund
For quite some time the US has experienced leftist initiated violence in cities across the country and it is no coincidence that Antifa, BLM and other hate groups are “acting out” in many of the cities and states listed above.
Where did Antifa begin? Portland?
Where did BLM begin? Seattle & Vancouver Canada
Where did the neo-Nazis begin to raise their ugly head? Germany – Berlin?
Where are the currently active hotspots? Look above and pick any number of locations.
I find it interesting that a sitting president would begin sabotaging his predecessor while smiling to his face and wishing him well (President Obama to President-Elect Trump – 2016).
I also find it hard to believe that someone who worked as hard as a community organizer, assembling his political power base and financing while in congress and as president would suddenly after leaving elected office just turn off his community organizing skills and remain silent during 4 years of civil unrest and 4 months of unrestrained, organized and financed violence on the streets of America. As a president who talked it was important to save even the life of one child at school, would sit silently by watching the destruction happening in America today.
Every patriotic American has come out and condemned the violence happening in Democratic lead cities and states, EXCEPT the Democratic Party establishment’s elected officials. Rather than shouting from the rooftops to stop the violence, all I hear are crickets…………..Or blame President Trump.
America has condoned the killing of police officers, innocent civilians and babies in the womb, but let a suspect resist or refuse to obey lawful commands of law enforcement when weapons are involved and the trigger is pulled for another round of lawlessness and violence. I say that if you are not part of the solution, you are the problem. America is better than that. Restore Law and Order. Do it now! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
