Organized Chaos __ Who’s Behind It?

Organized chaos? Sounds like an oxymoron, doesn’t it? But, chaos can be planned to occur and, as we will see, some people and some organizations have made a profession of planning chaos. You may be surprised to learn that our own  big government in partnership with big labor unions and big corporations are involved in planning chaos in the world.

Big Government, Big Labor, Big Corporations and Chaos

Once again I owe a big Hat Tip to blogger 5etester of Spellchek for his link to this article at, which puts an end to the MSM myth that the so-called Arab Spring was the result of spontaneous popular uprisings. Please read this article and learn how this all began three years ago by our own Hillary Clinton. I found it very disturbing and I think you will too. You will learn about Hillary’s  21st Century Statecraft and about organizations like Alliance of You Movements (AYM) and and their corporate sponsors.

All of this we are told is to promote democracy in the world. That may be a noble cause.  But have our government and labor unions and corporations gone too far? Have they crossed a dangerous line? This is addressed at the end of the article. Take a look:

It is one thing for the CIA or U.S. State Department to (covertly or overtly) foster regime change, help coordinate mass demonstrations and protests. However, unlike war matériel manufactured and sold to the government, or companies that are contracted by the government for specific tasks, products or services, in the case of AYM, companies are the actual sponsors of a group established to identify, connect and train activists in the use of the sponsors’ products to assist in the toppling of governments. AYM and its corporate sponsors are more than mere government contractors, they are actually helping the facilitation of the protests and regime change. Is that a line that should be crossed?

Moreover, since there have been well over a thousand deaths and countless injuries as a result of Arab Spring, do these corporations have a legal liability to the victims and their families? Do these victims or their families have grounds for a class-action suit against the corporate sponsors of Arab Spring?

What about the businesses that have lost business due to protests, or have been looted or destroyed? Does AYM’s corporate sponsors have liability to those businesses?

In my opinion, I think they have gone too far. What do you think?


Who is Lisa Fithian?

I must admit that I had never heard of this American legendary protest organizer until a few days ago.  Matt Ross at Conservative Hideout 2.0 has been doing an outstanding job of keeping us informed of who the players are in the OWS protests across the country. It was this recent article by Matt that I first heard of Lisa  Fithian. Please checkout the video in Matt’s short article and see how this Lisa Fithian worked with some teachers and planned which ones would get themselves arrested that day so they could have the media ready to record and report on the arrests. After I watched this video, I decided to learn more about this American legend.

From this article at Redstate, we learn

“When people ask me, ‘What do you do?’ I say I create crisis, because crisis is that edge where change is possible.” — Lisa Fithian

To say that Lisa Fithian is just a paid-professional protester would be to undersell her radical accomplishments. True, she’s received compensation from the SEIU and the SEIU’s labor federation Change to Win as a consultant. However, her war on the free market goes well beyond that. Last year, Fithian helped the UAW shut down Bank of America branches and, now, is helping the #OccupyWallSt protesters wage their occupations all across America.

Over the past three decades, according to her bio, Lisa Fithian has worked with Abbie Hoffman, organized protests against the Army Corp of Engineers, U.S. foreign policy in Nicaragua,  and was the national coordinator of a march to shut down the CIA in 1987 where over 600 people were arrested.

If you really want to know who Lisa Fithian is you have to read this article at  Discover the it is amazing. This woman is not only an American phenomena,  she is active around the world.  Here is just a taste;

  • Longtime community organizer and direct-action agitator
  • A key organizer of the violent demonstrations that caused the shutdown of
    the 1999 WTO meetings in Seattle
  • Served as a human shield in actions conducted by the International
    Solidarity Movement in the Palestinian cities of Jenin and Nablus
  • Has accused Israel of “slaughter[ing] Palestinians every single day in Gaza and the Occupied territories”
  • Seeks to “create crisis, because crisis is that edge where change is
  • Is the top street-level organizer of the Occupy Wall Street movement

More recently, Fithian has provided training and support to such groups as the new Students for a Democratic Society, the
Fair Immigrants Rights Movement, ACORN, National People’s Action, and many others.

Fithian says that she and others “who are trying to create a new world … have to dismantle or transform the old order” because “I just fundamentally don’t believe it will ever serve our interests as it’s currently constructed.” Citing the late-19th and early-20th century anarchist movement in Spain as her inspiration, Fithian refuses to limit her activism strictly to methods of nonviolent civil disobedience. “I am not a pacifist,” she says, explaining that “I was raised in this culture, which is a very violent culture and I understand that I have some violence in who I am.”

So, Matt Ross was right when he said that OWS is well organized and well financed. I think we have not heard the last of Lisa Fithian.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

  1. Thank you Jim, I too have never heard of Lisa Fithian, even though I was aware and believe that there are many Lisa Fithiam’s running around rampant. This type of screwed-up personality has always existed and will always exist. It is the common sense strength of the American people who has defeated them in the past and will always defeat them in the future.

    I think that in November of 2012 this common sense will show up again.

    1. Amazing, isn’t it? Francis Fox Piven gets all the press for talking the talk, but it is the lesser known Lisa Fithian who is walking the walk. Which is more dangerous? The one we know or the one we don’t know?

  2. This information is very disturbing, Jim. It makes a fellow wonder just how many of the events we see daily are manipulated for our benefit. It should also serve as a reminder that some people and organizations will stop at nothing to get their desired results.

  3. All I can honestly say is I know I am not behind the OWS protests, so that right there makes me not trust it from the get-go.

    This is their version of Arab Spring. It has begun. Now the Muslims are joining in. So we have all the bases covered. Wait. No, I haven’t seen the militant homosexuals and pedophiles voice their support. I’ll give it a week. Soon enough they’ll come sniffing around.

    It’s getting serious, folks. Be aware.

  4. Great job Jim of putting this together in a format that makes for an easy read. This is a huge story that few really understand.

  5. “Wag the Dog” comes to mind. This confirms that what we are seeing is brought to us by the 1960’s same “anarchy path to communism” crowd. Honestly, between your post yesterday on derivatives and this one…we know who and why and how. The question is what can be done to stop them? Makes me want to strangle the idiots in this country who gave O the keys. Big mistake…we will suffer for it for a long time to come.

  6. Sounds like Lisa Fithian is qualified to be the next democratic party presidential candidate. Obama was only a community organizer. This woman is a global chaos organizer.

    This is bizarre. Why hasn’t the group in the shadows wielded this tool against Iran?

    1. They seem to think that with one of their own in the White House and with all that he has accomplished in advancing their agenda, that they are just one crisis away from final victory and that now they can come out in the open. The crisis is coming but I think they are in for a big surprise. At least, I have to hang on to that hope.

  7. For your reading pleasure, allow me to present my choice of who the real villain is in this whole mess. h/t to My TEA Party Chronicle blog for this quote.
    Norman Thomas, the six-time Socialist Party candidate for U.S. President, said the following in a 1944 speech:

    “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism,’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened…. I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”

    Any questions?

  8. Did you ever wonder how bloggers can dismantle the radical left’s activities from the comfort of their computer chair, but Republicans with all their resources are almost completely silent on these kinds of things. Doesn’t that strike you as more than a little odd?

    1. rrjrd,

      I can smell what you got cooking.

      Neither the Democrat/Socialists nor the GOP/Republicans are relevant. At the end of the day, who is it that will be standing up for the Constitution, our free nation, and individual liberty?

      People like us. It has been and ever shall be…people like us. Neither of the Big Two, in today’s modern America, have The People’s best interest. (The People being “We the people”, not We the People of the glorious Socialist United State of Obama)

    2. The Republicans are either so wrapped-up in their elite world that they have completely lost touch with the real world or they are part of the game. Either way we must continue to clean house in 2012, 201 and, 2016.

  9. More recently, Fithian has provided training and support to such groups as the new Students for a Democratic Society…

    The SDS? Ye, gods! I have to deal with the craziness of the SDS on my college campus, 1968-1972.

    PS: I apologize for my recent absence here — and everywhere else involving blog rounds. I’ll be posting an explanation on Monday. It’s not bad news.

  10. There is no doubt in my mind that this “chaos” has been organized within the Obama regime for its own gain. Remember, never let a good crisis go to waste. Even if that means creating a crisis, which is what the Obama regime is doing.

  11. Thanks for the link, and the kind words.

    If you want to distill OWS to a simple sentence, it should be,”Well planned, well funded, and mostly Marxist.”
