Radical leftist Piven predicts Occupy heading into ‘trouble’ phase

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

She’s back! Your favorite leftist radical, France Fox Piven, has spoken out on what she sees coming with the next wave of the Occupy movement. While admitting Occupy benefitted from favorable press coverage (nooooooo way) she added that the next phase is where OWS moves into the ‘trouble’ phase. Buckle up!

The Blaze reports:

Leftist professor and activist Frances Fox Piven last week predicted the Occupy Wall Street movement is entering the phase where it “makes trouble” and will soon be taking action against banks and other institutions.

“It may well be that the Occupy movement is now in its second phase, in the phase where it makes trouble, in the phase where it threatens to shut down institutions,” Piven said. “The Occupy movement has moved into the neighborhoods of our cities, it has moved into the schools….This spring, we’ll see action against the banks, against the corporations.”

She added, “It is going to be a spring with lots of protests that take different forms and engage lots of people.”

Piven made her comments during a lecture to a group of students at the University of Connecticut last Friday. She touched on the genesis of the Occupy movement, which she said was particularly a result of the financial crisis, which “exposed those in charge of the economy as illegitimate.”

“The people who were sitting on top of the world, the top-tenth of the top 1 percent, were guilty. They were guilty of thievery, of chicanery,” Piven said.

“Does any of this sound familiar: Collapse the system, have it turn into riots, then the top can come down and you’ve got a new utopia. That’s their strategy. She’s instrumental now in Occupy Wall Street,” Glenn said.

“This spring we’ll see action against the banks and against the corporations. It’s coming. We know who’s involved. We know what their plan is. They say it. Are you and your family ready? Do you have a counterstrategy? I do. I do. Will you help us with it? Will you get your church involved? Somebody ‑‑ they’re community organizing. Are you?”

“You have to be not fighting against something but fighting for something. And we’re going to fight for love, we’re going to fight for peace, we’re going to fight for service, we’re going to fight for each other. We’re going to help each other,” Glenn added.

    The lines have been drawn and the war is about to escallate across the nation; this is what many of us have been expecting…Piven is declaring the violence will now happen, and soon, then Obama will be able to crash down on everything across the board with fire and steel, to shed as much blood and death as he can.

    Along the way watch for the media propaganda machinery call out that this is the failure of the capitalist system of America and that it has to be replaced with a socialist/communist system run by the Fed government.

    At the same time cries will go forth from people of influence among the radicals and of the state and federal governments for Obama to take, seize or be given ‘special powers for the duration of the crisis’ in dealing with Occupy bands, the Tea Party and anyone else the admin feels is a threat to their takeover.

    The admin will seize and nationalize all services such as oil, food distribution, water, gas, electricity and of course communications and the internet.

    At the same time the battle for the debt limit will come up once again with the Right being made to appear as stonewalling obstructionists at each moment of the day. Reid and Obama will be made to appear as the only ones who can solve the problems; then Obama will again usurp the Constitution declaring that he has to make the debt ceiling go up ‘as the Congress will not do it.”

    If the elections are permitted to go forth, which I doubt, Obama will either nullify them in the end, the Democratic controlled Senate will make sure the certifications of the new POTUS does not happen (remember the attempts to have Bush jr. denied the White House in 2000 by members of the Senate), failing this then he will go scorched earth.

    For Obama there are only two outcomes this Nov – absolute control and power to do as he pleases; or the destruction of the entire nation in flames and blood.

    There is no inbetween.

    I agree with much of what you say, but what you must realize is that if you see OWS as your enemy we will all be doomed. The TEA party thinks that the government has too much power over our lives, while the Occupy movement identifies corporations as dominating our way of life and thinking; where the commonality lies is that everyone agrees that large, heirarchical institutions have too much power, we don’t live in a democratic nation, and that corporations buy the government to pass favorable legislation, blocking out the voice of the american middle class.

    I am a minarchist, as many occupy folks are. We believe in minimum government, but also recognize that in many cases the federal government is the only thing that can protect us from abuses from this gigantic global corporations. It would be suicide to, for instance, outright abolish the EPA: do you think the businesses, which are legally obligated to increase profits above everything else, would care about your lungs? Would the tycoons of the early 20th century have regulated child labor, unsanitary and unsafe work conditions, and the eight hour workday were in not for the progressive surge that put these laws in place? So long as these giant corporate monsters are allowed to run rampant and dominate our lives, than a larger federal government will be necessary as a counterweight against them. (I am not saying the federal government is efficient, constitutional, or good, only desirable right now in opposition to the effects of corporate personhood)

     A A, very well stated.  

    My feeling is (as part of the non-elite) that if we’re dealing with either corporations dominating our way of life or the federal government being too large that it becomes invasive to our way of life — between those two huge Goliaths, I’d rather have the corporations dominating as opposed to the federal government. 

    First and foremost, our constitution doesn’t allow for the Federal Government to have too much power.  Actually the constitution represents the exact opposite.  Secondly, one can boycott corporations, one can take out ads and do a smear campaign against corporations that are greedy or do like in the days gone by with child labor, etc.  But one has NO actions it can take against a large federal government.  The larger the federal government gets the smaller we, the People, get. 

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    I am a believer in minimal Federal government; and yes even the EPA does some good. The problem with the Feds is they have been allowed to usurp too much power the people are suppose to have; there have to be legal restraints on business practices as well to a point – such as not stealing, tax evasion and many others yet if the free market system is to actually work then the government needs to stop cronie capitalism as well.

    The main problem is this: Feds – evil, Mega corps with Feds – evil.

    Trade one evil for the other is still spreading evil.

    Our system and nation is not perfect, nor will it ever be perfect; yet in the hands of a free citizenry we can make it as close to that goal as we can.

    “But one has NO actions it can take against a large federal government.”

    Voting? I favor the government over corporations because corps are accountable to only their shareholders’ wallets. Governments are accountable to the people, at least ostensibly, and are theoretically “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”

    so disagree with you re; the epa. it should be abolished asap.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LHXV4ZALVVFUWQ5VN5OV2UFHAU A A

    I’m glad to see we can agree on substance. Let’s look back historically and remember that governments were originally a tool to protect the propertied class (which would now be corporations) from the rest of the population. In effect, they were designed to protect the wealth inequality in the society and this is basically their main purpose to this day: to protect private property. Also, I disagree with the premise that we have a “free market,” or that a free market in a capitalist system could ever work without constant adjustments and interventions.

    Your last sentence sums up exactly how I feel, though, in eloquent style.

    Most of our local governments are the “shareholders” of these corporations, so we all are indirectly benefiting from the increase in corporate profits. 

    Putting aside those economics for the moment, as far as the vote, most of what happens in the federal government happens without our vote.  For instance, you and I didn’t get to vote on the fact that all federal politicians have a Cadillac pension plan that is obscenely way out of proportion to what the rest of our taxpayers get.  We didn’t get to vote on the high wages taxpayers pay for these politicians that keep raising their own wages and increasing their pension plans, all paid for by the taxpayer.  Much of what is happening in the federal government you and I didn’t vote for.  You and I didn’t get a chance to vote against the huge bailouts that corporate America received from the federal government. 

    I’d rather see our local governments, as shareholders of these corporations, benefit from increased profits the corporations earn so that our local communities are better off and, therefore, we all are better of.  I’d rather see we consumers use our buying power and our choice to buy elsewhere as a voice to change policies that go on in corporate America. 

    The larger the federal government gets the smaller we, the People, get.

After spending time with loved ones, eating, sleeping, blogging, video gaming, and boob tubing (don’t forget the occasional exercise) and yes the inevitable job, how does anyone have a moment to complain? I figured out how to end the wars in the Middle east, Just parachute play stations and flat screens to all the people, with games and DVD’s of course, I’m certain Iran would figure out what to do with the nuclear power they possess.

    I understand, its not too difficult to figure out what Obama and cronies want and a possible scenario on how to achieve it. Use the KISS principle.

    Find out their end game (collapse of America)

    Work backwards from there onto HOW they could logically do so; with the resources at their disposal.

    The one problem I have at times with people is that I see a double edge game Obama is playing, the ‘scorched earth’ preparation. Many do not want to believe he could have it happen; yet the more I study him and the great disasters of dictators the more I see the pattern – if you are losing then make sure the nation goes down in flames as well; leave nothing left for the winners and survivors.

    I pray I am wrong.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    Original – do not underestimate these Occupy thugs; while the main street rabble is most likely as easy to take down as you say, I see in the bands a variety of true ‘professionals’ who will not be so easy to stop. Consider that many of the Occupy allies (such as they are) are also radical, extremist MILITANT GROUPS.

    This is the one part of Obama/Soros/Van Jones plan many people miss; the Occupy bands and the radicals only have to serve their purpose for the time it takes to have the people call out for someone to end the madness.

    If Obama can make it appear as if these groups are led and influenced by one or more foreign powers or groups (aka ‘terrorists’) then he can get the power he needs, or seize it, to order the US Armed Forces to take them down.

    Do not forget there already is a precident for it from the 60s when four people were killed by armed forces at a college demonstration – then two more a few days later.

    Just for the record too; most South American countries have survived many coup attempts save from their own armed forces. Look to Columbia, Peru and even Argentina to see what they went through as well.

    We must never underestimate the ruthless, amoral, sadistic nature of Obama and his thugs.

     i can not, and will not doubt a word you say. BUT, the “militant” groups i keep running across are fine with blowing stuff up in secret and cowardly ways, but when forced to stand face to face will only approach a combat situation or fight if they outnumber the other side 50 to one. i have also debated them many times and once they find out i have served my country they attack that verbally, but when i ask why they didnt serve they make no bones about the fact that they are against standing up for anything no matter how important it is to them if the chance of getting hurt is present. As for the military, i am still in contact with a HUGE number of service members, lots of them are family members, and one resounding comment i have heard time and again is, “we will not follow this president if we are commanded to turn on the people of America”. with all kidding aside my biggest fear is a coup. This president is not popular at all with military personnel. All the things i hear point to the whole “we need to go in and spray bullets at the occutards” and “if this person gets a second term da poo poo will hit da fan”

    I understand – a coup is one of my biggest concerns as well. The main part is who will launch it…

    If the military, then we will be finished as a nation that can trust in its armed forces – the sole exception being if Obama refuses to give up power after being impeached/voted out of office or declares himself a dictator and overthrows the Constitution.

    The other possiblility is a political coup from withim; most likely from Reid, Pelosi, Hillary and backed up by the head nutcase of Napoletano.

    In this second case, a cover story of ill health for Obama; any reason of physical or mental, have him resign and Biden is made POTUS. Now, they would somehow find a move to get either Reid, Pelosi or Hillary into the position of VP (not exactly sure how yet I can imagine that part is already worked out)

    Soon after Biden resigns and then we have Hillary or Pelosi in power; a progressive dictator from within.

    I hope you are right about the militant groups, right now I just wonder if anything of our country will survive this year let alone to see a new POTUS in office.

I know what it’s like to be hungry, I’m not talking about missing a meal either, As a share cropper we didn’t always have enough food, And during the war it was bad because even if you had food ration stamps, and didn’t have the money what difference did it make. I have one piece of advice to OWS, If I was in charge I would take lots of pictures, And if you made a mess you would clean it up, and if you broke a window, You will get your head broke. and If saw the bitch form hell, I would make sure she would not walk away, but carried.I am not a 1% er, And I sure as hell not with or for a group of thugs that break other peoples stuff, My dad all ways told me, don’t be there and you want get hurt.

    The coup happened in 1913. The scenarios you have described are unlikely, I instead envision a slow, subtle, continual creep into martial law that we have been witnessing since before the Patriot Act, though certainly accelerating lately, as evidenced by the NDAA and the promulgation of fusion centers.

    You are correct in saying that many different groups are trying to hijack this leaderless upswelling for their own political gain; where you are wrong is in implying that it is the people out on the streets doing the “cozying up.”

    Most OWS people I know do not like Obama. Though if you ask who they’ll vote for (those who still even believe in giving this system legitimacy, that is), they will obviously choose Obama over any GOP candidate other than Ron Paul. But I see no substantial difference in policy.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LHXV4ZALVVFUWQ5VN5OV2UFHAU A A

    I would love for you to tell me what the GOP candidate’s magic solution is that hasn’t been tried to prop up this system.

    Frankly, I’d love to get Obama out of office, but to replace him with what? I’m not exactly ready for another Bush-ideology presidency, to the extent that the Obama admin even differs from Bush’s policies. Whoever you get is the new scapegoat-in-chief, to be sacrified upon the cross of public opinion. Because our idea of a “saviour” that we expect in a modern president is doomed to fail; the system around him has grown to be so much larger than any one agency can control.

    I have been eyeing Buddy Roemer, previous GOP governor of LA, as well as Rocky Anderson, yet the truth is there no viable candidate in world where the establishment media is in the business of picking candidates. Look at the the blackout that has taken place against Ron Paul.

    But I digress, and restate my question: What do you think Romney (it’s mostly likely going to be him) is going to do differently than Obama that’s going to stop the death of the American middle class, among so many other issues? In my opinion, they’re all shills of the neoliberalist agenda. If they weren’t they wouldn’t be where they are today.

    I see where you’re coming from, and agree with everything you said in the second paragraph. This is an example of the lack of true democracy in our government, a government that tells us that pulling a lever in a booth at an aging middle school every four years is called “democracy.” (Not to mention that you get to choose between tweedle dee or tweedle dum, and you have gotten all your impressions of either candidate based off what the media fed you.)

    You say: “Most of our local governments are the “shareholders” of these corporations, so we all are indirectly benefiting from the increase in corporate profits.” This sentence alone is true. But let’s examine it closer. You go on, “I’d rather see our local governments, as shareholders of these corporations, benefit from increased profits the corporations earn so that our local communities are better off and, therefore, we all are better of. I’d rather see we consumers use our buying power and our choice to buy elsewhere as a voice to change policies that go on in corporate America”

    Is it really in the communities’ best interest to have a Wal Mart move into town, forcing local business to close, sucking profits out of the local area, and bringing in questionable labor practices, not to mention the blandness and uniformity that comes with corporate bix-box America? Does this contribute to the culture of your neighborhood?
    Sure, you get lower prices, but at what cost? You are correct that every dollar we spend is in a sense a vote for a consumer in the economic market, but a real vote is free; many people cannot afford to boycott certain stores or shop elsewhere, also after Wal Mart moves in and all the independent stores go under, how much of a real “choice to buy elsewhere,” as you say, do you have? The oligopolistic corporations do not find competition or a truly “free market” conducive to profits; they’d rather use underhanded tactics to gain monopoly of an industry, and care little for the impact on small, local communites. So it, as everything is, is a trade-off, yet it is a trade off that in my opinion sees the communities getting the short end of the stick.

    So while an increase in corporate profits does indeed indirectly benefit us all, think of the dark cloud of externalities looming that makes that gain seem not so great after all. I view it as an example of robbing Peter to pay Paul.

    I concur that, “The larger the federal government gets the smaller we, the People, get.” But to that I would also like to add, “The larger the MNCs gets, the smaller we, the People, get.”

    I’ll conclude with Good ‘ol Thomas Jefferson: “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies … If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] … will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent [that] their fathers conquered … The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”

    Yet beyond these obvious contradictions and walk-backs lies a
    transcendent logic: As with the Keystone pipeline postponement, as with the

    get past Nov. 6 without any untoward action that might threaten his

And the Lords servant must not quarrel ; instead he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.
    But mark this:
    There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self control, brutal, not lovers of good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God —having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.

    They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these men oppose the truth—men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.” – II Tim.2:22 -3:9

    Remember what is written above when the decision is made to move to the 2nd phase of OWS, God will.

     That’s kind of the problem. Go in shooting the OWS crowd and the media will paint you as the problem and send the government in after you. As much as I might wish that to be the solution got to think of a better way. It would be different if you shot the OWS fools if they came after you, even then the media would try to find a way to make you look like the bad guy. I mean how dare you defend yourself against a unruly mob. Keep a rational head because you are dealing with irrational people here.

    Let’s not say age or cancer, how about having her wake up with a conscience one morning.

    Usually in multicultural societies the  military and police break along lines of ethnicity.  Since this country is more pluralistic than any in history, I’m pretty sure that’s what will happen.

    In the beginning there will be much heavy-handed police action, but that will give way as soon as it encounters armed resistance and the first cracks in the government’s stability occurs.

    What dear old Francis can’t see, living within her protected womb of the university, is that there’s a far larger force in the real world that is much more powerful and determined to take control than the pansies on the left.

    Her “predictions” amount no more than a call to arms along lines she wants the left to take.  Unknown to her, she could well be unleashing a hell on earth that will reduce her to tears as the situation develops.

    While she is hoping for the OWS crowd to start trouble, she had better be careful what she wishes for, because she just might get it, but she will not like what the ultimate outcome will be.

    I love to hear Piven speak out.
    Heck, I don’t even agree with her, but I love how it gets glenn beck all riled up!!!
    Piven is a little too radical for me…but what makes me laugh is how glenn tries to make himself look like he is not a radical when compared to Piven…
    glenn beck needs people like Piven, and Piven needs a**holes like glenn beck to survive in the shadows of politics in the U.S.
    Why don’t they rejoice the fact that the other side is there to support them?

    This year will be very dangerous for America.  Last fall when the OWS movement started, Obama, Pelosi, Reid and other (D)s were very supportive of the movement.  Remember Pelosi stating that OWS was a “real grass roots movement” while the TEA Party movement was “astro turf”?  It was a test run for this year.

    As stated by libertarian4339, FFP’s “predictions” are no more than a call to arms.  The next phase has been part of the plan all along.  There will be violence and bloodshed on the streets in 2012.  Maybe this time, the local authorities will be better prepared and not allow it to get out of hand, as they did last year.

    We are sitting on a powder keg.  The question is, “Who will strike the match?”

    If we’re going to pick sides in a war, we need to be sure that we are on Jesus side.  We have to obey his priorities, his laws, and use his methods.  We can’t just shoot people who have been duped by the enemy.  We should remember that his ways created everything that we are hoping to preserve.  There is another battle that is much more important.  The battle to reinstate the founders definition of, “Separation of church and state”.  The current definition labeled God’s word as being harmful,  and that our children needed to be protected from it.  We never stepped up to that battle which is why we are confronted by so many ignorant people now.  You may have seen David Barton in “America’s Godly Heritage”.  The moment the courts redefined this term was the moment this landslide began.  Crime, dishonesty,  family breakdown, all stemmed from this loss.  Let’s stop dealing with the fallout, and fight the real battle.  God’s word is the stake in the heart of all evil.  We cannot succeed without our best weapon.  Wrong weapon wrong battle.  The enemy wins.  We do not battle with the flesh, but with the principalities of darkness.

    Thank you for searching for some common ground.  I’m glad your for small government.  I’m not sure about your solution.  I think we could succeed in overcoming big government, and corporations.  Using one devil to fight the the other guarantees that the victor will be a devil.  We don’t want either of these institutions to have unchecked powers.  Yes I will call the big government movement a devil, because  Stephen Learner,  one of the founding members of occupy,  is the head of the Communist movement in our country.  If we want to limit corporations we need to limit the loopholes that are made for them.  Corporations limit our rights.  They use the government to make it difficult or illegal to do for ourselves when they provide services.  I live in rural Iowa.  Their making zoning laws out here that prevent building housing on your own property without permission.  It’s not a question of safety.  You can be denied permission even if your building is safe.  These and even more zoning restrictions are being pushed in our counties by liberal representatives.  My boss is one of them.  I work on his farm.  Communism makes everyone equal.  Everyone starves, everyone suffers,  everyone gets shot if you mention that people are starving and suffering.  If they can provide sustenance they’ll shoot you over differences of opinion, “Teinemin Square”.  Stephen Learner.  Communism in America.  Occupy U.S. territory with it’s own citizens.  Are you sure?  If you have any reservations about this organization your involved in you should consider them.  You may be on a ride and not know where you are going.  If you want to combat corruption we need to use virtue.  there is no system of laws or application of power that can prevent corruption,  as instilling virtue can.  Power will always crush, laws will be ignored by justices.  There is no substitute for virtue.  There is no better source of virtue than the Word Of God.  If you read it you will see how all these changes we’ve been going through, and the changes that are coming along are quite predictable.  God shows us the consequences, of our actions. He sustains us with his promises.  He tells us how to overcome corruption.  All of this corruption in our country started when we denied him by allowing the separation of church, and state to be refined.  Sorry for going on so Long.  I do appreciate your looking for common ground.  I’m glad that I saw some in your message.

    Here’s something you should know.  George Bush Sr.  proposed a bill that would allow the increased taxation of, individuals who made large sums of money, but let small businesses stay on the standard tax rate.  The democratic controlled congress didn’t even consider it.  This is what they’ve been clamoring for.  It got handed to them on a silver platter.  They turned it down because, it excluded small businesses.  A income tax hike at the rate they wanted would destroy almost all small businesses.  You should check out the people your following.  They are creating a lot of the problems they claim to be out to cure.  Don’t trust anyone.  Don’t trust me, don’t trust politicians, don’t trust reporters,  and most of all don’t trust yourself.  The easiest lies to believe are the ones we want to believe.

    Those of us who work in downtown DC, we are very concerned about this.  We know it’s coming. We know that Obama and his advisors, along with financial support from ACORN and the SEIU are behind this racist facist socialist movement.  This group is performing the same functions as the Brown Shirts prior to WW2.

    In our Declaration of Independence there is a statement that; those who can take action to save our nation have the RESPONSIBILITY to do so. 

    In this particular case, since the Occupy group and their backers in the white house are deliberately trying to overthrow our Constitutional form of government and institute a Fascist Socialist society, it is our RESPONSIBILITY as citizens of this nation to “Protect and Defend the CONSTITUTION of the United States against ALL enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC.” 

    We know who the domestic enemies are. The time to take action against them in any and all ways possible, is near.  Get out and Vote in November. It is time to CLEAN HOUSE and rid ourselves of this infection called Socialism.

    Well when the SHTF  I hope someone goes into pivins ivory tower and puts one right behind the ear then throws her out the window for all her minions to see. That will either enrage them or make them think.

    Just make sure of one thing, plenty of ammo and weapons. I live in the mountains so I do not think they will come here if they do they will never leave, so they better be careful what they wish for.
