Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

Blogline of the Day – doesn’t it just put a smile on your face, too?

by Skip April 24, 2017

Trump schedules a big rally right on top of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Even better, many of them will have to miss the dinner to cover the rally. Heh! For somebody who these same people have publicly run down as incapable, lacks gravitas, constitutionally unable to be “Presidential”, he keeps foiling them all the […]

So Zandra Rice-Hawkins is going to try to Alinsky NH Gov Chris Sununu?

by Skip April 24, 2017

“I’m disappointed that both the original posting and response violated the principles of GraniteGrok.“ That was my first interaction with Zandra Rice-Hawkins – she almost Alinsky’d me during McCain’s run for Prez when she was fronting for the Socialist-all-in union called the SEIU.  I took a picture of one of her “I’m a healthcare voter” […]

Holy Space? Well, when you no longer believe in God, you’ll believe in something else

by Skip April 4, 2017

And Progressives / Socialists worship Government to bring a “Heaven on Earth” and they have their orthodoxy and liturgy to which there is no dissent including that there can not be anything else before it.  Yeah, I wanna believe that the former Soviet Union, the early Communist China, Viet Nam, Venezuela and of course, North […]

Now the Right is out-Alinskying the Left? Serves them Right!

by Skip February 13, 2017

Given how Alinsky’s Rules were used against Conservatives, Traditionalists, and Libertarians at the beginning of the Obama Administration, and how long it took us to figure out what it was that was being used against us, this piece by Kurt Schlicter (who is becoming a good read) is amusing: The Left is getting massively out-Alinskyed, […]

Palate Cleanser: USS Deplorables and using Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals for ourselves

by Skip December 11, 2016

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.) You know, I REALLY like this idea, given that Hillary Clinton is […]

Obamacare – now what? Yes, I have a very simple solution

by Skip November 9, 2016

All things considered, that is and the best part of it is all the GOP has do is just Alinsky it: RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no […]

Really, should ANYONE be surprised? Thoughts on the Trump October surprise

by Skip October 8, 2016

Over at, I “gabbed” this (not tweeted – I’m no longer using Twitter): It seems that lots of stories (the Oct surprises?) are coming out about Trump sexually harrassing women. So he is vilified by the Dems now while Bill Clinton is still revered as a rock store by Dems (well, at least as […]

Super Trolling: Making them live by their own rule book – Ze, Zir, and “His Majesty”

by Skip September 30, 2016

This is just AWESOME!  We all know that the Left continues to assault our traditional cultural norms and will do so until there is nothing to “conserve”.  The biggest deal is “gender identity” and “gender fluidity” which continues their nihilism onslaught against absolute values by declaring anybody can call themselves pretty much anything they want […]

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon”. Identity politics is PERFECT to use it against

by Skip April 18, 2016

So who SAYS I can’t be anything I want to be – YOU??  The folks at the Family Policy Institute of Washington, in showing just how delusional this ability to accept just about anything about what/who someone wants to identify as,  just keep taking those poor Politically Correct college students down that road to complete absurdity […]

2016 Presidential Primary – an observation on the media

by Skip December 4, 2015

From Pat Buchanan at Townhall (reformatted, emphasis mine): And the media have played right into Trump’s hand. They constantly denounce him as grossly insensitive for what he has said about women, Mexicans, Muslims, McCain and a reporter with a disability. Such crimes against decency, says the press, disqualify Trump as a candidate for president.  Yet, when […]

Obama acts the bully; Cruz calls him out.

by Skip November 19, 2015

It is clear that Obama views Republicans, especially Constitutional conservatives and TEA Party folks, as an existential enemy.  Given the furor that Obama caused by his presser the other day and calling out his political opposition over Syrian refugees and hurting “widows and orphans”, one could see his use of Alinsky’s Rule #5:  “Ridicule is man’s most […]

Actually, Senator Lindsey Graham, the GOP will be blamed for something else!

by Skip February 24, 2015

LINDSEY GRAHAM BELIEVES GOP WILL GET BLAMED FOR DEFUNDING HOMELAND SECURITY Moderate Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) mantra, believes Republicans will be blamed if the Department of Homeland Security is not funded over objections to President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty…On This Week, Graham called for Congress to pass an unencumbered Homeland Security bill so […]

GrokTV: interview with Bill O’Brien – Questions 13 & 14 (State Cartels, more Alinsky demonization)

by Skip November 15, 2014

“Winning is only a precursor; it is what you do afterwards that is most important” And we are not close to being done (close, but a coupla/few more posts).  This time, the plethora of areas where NH must be begged “Daddy, may I earn a living?” instead of just getting to the job of doing […]

GrokTV: interview with Bill O’Brien – Questions 11 & 12 (State employee lobbying, Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals)

by Skip November 14, 2014

Two important questions having to do with the Proper Role of Government (State employees be able to lobby State legislators?) and the power of the Democrat PR Machine getting inside some Republicans’ heads.  That latter one would be the Democrat tactic of using Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals (Rule #12) against Bill O’Brien (especially it is clear […]

Syria: Obama is learning that not everyone is willing to live up to their own book

by Skip September 6, 2013

Yeah, but this is what happens when it doesn’t work: RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is […]

Making sport of Obama: Who knew that Syrian Dictator’s 11 year old son read Alinksy?

by Skip August 30, 2013

This is absolutely rich – the Most Powerful Man in the World is ridiculed by an 11 year old boy whose Dad happens to be Syria’s Bashar Assad’s son, Hafez al-Assad.  Worse, he taunts O’Bam by saying “Yo, Emperor, where’s your clothes?” After all, how bad can it get when Obama’s indecision and mishandling gets […]

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon” – Hey, he used to teach it; time it is used on him

by Skip August 24, 2013

Political Correctness police (almost always Progressives as they seek to use this tool of Political Castration to move Forward their agenda of Cultural Marxism) do what they always do – find someone who has upset your sense of being and then DESTROY him – and that is what they did to that Rodeo Clown wearing […]

Hypocrisy for Democrats 101: Bu, bu, bu, but that works for us for Guns….”If it only saves one live”

by Skip June 19, 2013

…how DARE you try to use our tactic of emotional blackmail for abortions! I have to admit, that was a GREAT question and well posed.  It shows that much of the “faux outrage” of Democrats on many issues is exactly that: false and demogogic.  They are tailored to pull at emotion instead of reason.  And […]

Email Doodlings – Conservatives should do Press Interviews – but watch the “how”

by Skip January 5, 2013

A good Conservative friend on an email list, well known in NH, refuses to do press interviews.  He’s had nothing but gotcha quotes / twisted quotes as a result, so he now leaves them twisting in the wind as they desperately try to get him to speak.  There are some that do try for the […]
