Hillary, Obama, the Cult of Saul Alinsky!

Saul Alinsky’s crowning achievement was his recruitment of a young high school student named Hillary Rodham.

She met Alinsky through a radical church group.

Hillary wrote an analysis of Alinsky’s "methods" for her senior thesis at Wellesley College, where nearly the entire faculty was Communist.

Alinsky and Hillary remained friends until Alinsky’s death in 1972.

Alinsky tried to hire Hillary as a community organizer, but she chose instead to attend Yale Law School.

Nonetheless, Alinsky’s network continued guiding Hillary’s career.

Fresh out of law school at age 26, Hillary received a prestigious appointment to the House Judiciary Committee’s Watergate investigative team in 1974. She got the job on the recommendation of Peter and Marian Wright Edelman.

The Edelmans have been trusted mentors of Hillary since 1969.

New Republic

editor Martin Peretz called Marian "Hillary’s closest sister and ideological soulmate."

Marian Wright Edelman also happens to be an Alinskyite, having served on the Board of Trustees of Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation.

Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues.

However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say WHATEVER it takes to gain power.

Barack Obama is also an Alinskyite.

Trained by Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation, Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method.

In 1985, he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project.

Later, he worked with ACORN and its offshoot Project Vote, both creations of the Alinsky network. Camouflage is the key to Alinsky-style organizing.

While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for not attending church.

He became an instant churchgoer!!!

The fact that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama share an Alinskyite background tells us two things.


they are LEFTISTS, dedicated to overthrowing our Constitutional system.


they will go to any length to conceal their radicalism from the public.

That is the Alinsky method – infiltrate and cover-up your intentions.

That IS today’s Democratic Party.

As a result of our nation’s inability to discern, notice what the God of the Bible has revealed:

"… to the intent that the living may know that the most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomsoever He will, and sets up over it the basest of men" (Daniel 4: 17).

There are yet some who may listen to the call to return to the true and Living God. I hope so!
