Rush Limbaugh on why migrant invasion happening now: Has ‘Cloward-Piven’ plan to destroy America been launched to stop Trump?

By Jon Dougherty

We don’t do wild conspiracy theories here because we figure no matter how ‘creative’ we get we’ll always be outdone by Democrats like Reps. Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell, two California “Russian collusion” truthers who traffic in such tinfoil hat nonsense.

But radio talk legend Rush Limbaugh, as he so often does, has twice this week brought up a salient point regarding the masses of humanity streaming towards the U.S. border from Central America — the “migrant caravans” that have become a regular occurrence since the latter part of 2018.

During his program Tuesday he noted (per Rush’s website):

We don’t currently have mechanisms to absorb this, and people are now beginning to ask a very legitimate question: Why now? Why are masses of people, in the thousands in these caravans…? Why now are these migrations happening? Why didn’t they happen three years ago and four years ago and five? Why now? Everybody wants everybody to believe that this just organic, that the circumstances in all of these nations in Central America’s deteriorated to the point that nobody can live there anymore.

There may have been others asking this question but it hasn’t become part of the national conservative conversation until Rush asked it.

Some have suggested there are Leftist globalist groups — perhaps funded by some of the usual America-hating suspects like George Soros — behind the massive migrations out of Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.

Others have noted that the Mexican cartels are getting in on the act because there is a lot of money to be made moving that many migrants north, which the cartels have begun to automate, essentially, using buses and other modes of mass transit (see our TNS Videos report on that here).

But this only addresses the “how,” not the why, and that’s where Rush comes in.

He suggested that some sort of “Cloward-Piven” plan could be underway to purposely flood the United States’ capabilities to handle an influx of migrants to the point where the system collapses and widespread chaos ensues — very likely as a means of ‘stopping’ POTUS Donald Trump, the first president in generations that is keeping, or trying to keep, campaign promises, including his pledges to build a border wall and enforce all immigration laws.

Something virtually no one in official Washington or corporate boardrooms wants to see happen.

So, what is the Cloward-Piven plan? And who are/were these people?

The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political scheme outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven of Columbia University that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty.”

This was during the time that Lyndon B. Johnson launched his “war on poverty” and he and fellow Democrats gave us the massive welfare bureaucracy we still have today. To a large degree, the Cloward-Piven strategy moved our country closer to the stated objective.

But there’s more to the Cloward-Piven strategy than that, as Rush notes:

As I said yesterday, it’s kind of a derivative of the old Cloward-Piven plan to destroy the United States as founded. You know, the basic element of Cloward-Piven… These were two professors at Columbia University, leftists to be sure.

Their whole plan was to flood the American safety net, flood the American welfare system beyond the point that it could work. Cause a total breakdown in life-support systems and economics and, in so doing, you would inspire a revolt, because the government would soon cease to be seen as operating effectively. A, by not being able to keep the migrants out. Then not being able to keep them sequestered after they got in and not being able to keep them out of a job market and not being able to provide for all of them.



We’re $22 trillion in debt. But these are the designs of left-wing intellectuals who think this country’s unjust, illegitimate, immoral, and this is one of the ways they came up with to destroy America. And I think we are living in the midst of an international effort. It’s gotta be paid for by somebody. This takes a lot of money, to support this number of human beings on this long a trek. I mean, they don’t get American welfare before they got here. They got getting it somewhere.

Mexico’s not giving them any money that we know of. So we’re way beyond the confines here of simply the trickle in comparison of illegal immigration. This is a mass-migration invasion that is no doubt planned and orchestrated to coincide with a Republican presidential administration

Rush’s theory of unrest and internal chaos is not actually his theory: It really was the objective of Cloward and Piven. He was just one of the first to put the two together.

As noted by historian Robert E. Weir in 2007, “Although the strategy helped to boost recipient numbers between 1966 and 1975, the revolution its proponents envisioned never transpired.

The Department of Homeland Security reported that federal agents apprehended around 100,000 people at the U.S.-Mexico border in March alone; the figure for February was near 76,000. Clearly — clearly  — there is a concerted effort to overwhelm our immigration and asylum system, with the objective being to disrupt a president who pledged and is working towards sane border control policies and internal immigration law enforcement.

As to who is behind it, that’s going to come out eventually. But one thing is certain, Democrats in Congress, as well as far too many Republicans, are acting as co-conspirators by their failure to reform current immigration law while denying the president the legal tools he needs to deal with the crisis.

There is only one way to halt this nonsense – declare martial law – arrest most of the Democrats, those in the FBI, CIA and any other alphabet intelligence agencies who are considered to be deep state. Arrest those in the media who are known to be complicit. .Find Soro and shoot him on sight.

The invasion of illegal aliens has been going on for decades, not just a recent thing. A constant trickle day after day. In years gone by the Dems and RINOs would blow some hot air regarding the subject, sweep it under the rug and move on. I think the reason for the big surge now is because the Marxists in our government are fearful that the immigration laws will be fixed if we regain control of Congress in the next election cycle.

It’s pretty much a “hearts and minds” issue as the MSM and the academic-industrial complex has proselytized the unwashed into believing that “no human is illegal” and that they should fling upon the border doors. The “hate has no home” bunch need to hear the consequences of their folly, with a mass social media bombardment of the truth. Divert all those bucks to the feckless RNC, and create your own truth platform alternative to Google, FB, Twitter, etc.

Welcome to the party, Rush. We have been saying this for 10 years, (the Cloward-Piven strategy), ever since Obama was elected and the Dems passed the federal takeover of health care. And Cloward-Piven is no ‘conspiracy’. Richard Cloward was a professor at Columbia until 1980, Obama’s first year at Columbia; so it is very likely that Prof Cloward taught Obama how to destroy our free enterprise system by massive increases in government programs and government spending. C-P is much more than just uncontrolled immigration. The Dem’s mad plans for the explosion of federal government spending, through massive new programs such… Read more »

These foreign invaders are the left’s army.
This would be a possible tipping point to get our citizens involved in the fight.
President Trump getting elected delayed that strategy,
If Clinton were elected, we would be under Marshall law by now.
These Communists have no moral clarity.
Human lives are not the priority, power is.

Rush is a couple of decades behind, Cloward-Priven has been in play for years, especially under Obongo. Soros is now 88, he knows he will not survive 8 years of Trump, so he is going all out to destroy America before his time runs out. That was actually Hillary’s job to finish what Obongo started, but those damn voters and Trump got in the way. Start with Soros and all the pieces of the puzzle fall into place.

BTW: I first started listening to this fat GOP establishment excuse making asshole during the Slick Willie years in the White House. I knew back then what the ‘Agenda’ was, behind the refusal of our government to secure our borders and to cut off all immigration from the third world and to drastically reduce legal immigration and restrict it to ONLY those who had the greatest ability and willingness to assimilate into Western civilization and who were as culturally similar to the majority population group as possible. And, who came here with SKILLS that would ensure their ability to be… Read more »

Rush regularly attacks the GOP establishment, and has for many years. You are another non-listener. Rush always supported border control. He attacked the amnesty bills of 2013 and 2006 relentlessly.

Your ridicule is indicative of anger over reason. Ever attack a RINO?

I share your frustration. I wrote for a major national newspaper back in the mid 90’s. Illegal immigration and the wide open border, the rampant welfare fraud by these illegals were all off limit topics. You might get friendly, nebulous advice once, or twice but such as, those topics have no support, but no matter what editors and the publisher who dictated policy simply wouldn’t allow them to be printed. My insistence and persistence ended my career. It’s not about Democrats either. It’s about the one world globalist agenda, which demands free movement of money and labor units (people) globally.… Read more »

Here’s the bottom line. Congress, the courts and the bureaucracy are all against Trump. They refuse to allow the system to work, or to allow him to fix it. Barr already sounds as, if he is trying to minimize the crimes against America. We need charges for everyone who had any connection to the nefarious goings on. No one should be allowed to employ a resignation in lieu of criminal liability. And the investigation has to go wherever the facts lead and that includes Obama and Hillary and top Administration officials. Trump considers disallowing remittances, which may be a good… Read more »

There is no doubt that Obama was clean, articulate race baiting eye-candy, possibly a precursor to Alexandria Cortezs’ casting call procedure to oppose this Republican Populist, D.J. Trump. Remember , in 2004, when the Jr. Senator from Illinois, napping in the back row, was called upon to deliver the Democrat’s keynote address? The former Community Organizer, whose methods were borrowed directly from Saul Alinsky, that lied to recieve foreign aid grants to attend college to study undoing The Constitution. He was a manchurian candidate who could articulate the scripts of a teleprompter, and read them with the gusto of a… Read more »

I always go back to George Washington’s vision at Valley Forge. It talks all about a foreign stealth invasion. It’s amazingly accurate.

Cloward Piven is the progressive’s path to full on socialism. Once they break the system, they will be standing by to take over us a lord over us from their Utopian mansions.

Trump is blind to turning his back on America because Javanka are blocking the will of the people. Nepotism is disgusting and ultimately the downfall of this administration. Israel gets $58 billion and they have a wall. He has kept every promise to Israel and yet he back tracks on Mexico, giving them another year.

Put up the razor wire and back it with troops. If they can’t get in by crossing the border in the first place, they can’t claim asylum here and we don’t have to process their court cases or release them into our country! Trump also needs to completely shut down the border NOW – not give them another year to pour in!
