You will show us your papers.

Back in July of 2012 the New York Slimes vented their displeasure with the State of Arizona over Arizona’s attempt to enforce American immigration laws by requiring individuals suspected of being illegal immigrants to show proof of either American citizenship, or legal immigrations status. In a play straight out of the notorious American Marxist Revolutionary Saul Alinsky’s Guerrilla warfare hand book, they went right to sections sevens rule number 5 and immediately followed up with rule number 12.

7. Tactics

“Tactics are those conscious deliberate acts by which human beings live with each other and deal with the world around them. … Here our concern is with the tactic of taking; how the Have-Nots can take power away from the Haves.” p.126

Always remember the first rule of power tactics (pps.127-134):

1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”

2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people. When an action or tactic is outside the experience of the people, the result is confusion, fear and retreat…. [and] the collapse of communication.

3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)

4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”

5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”

6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”

7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for only a limited time….”

8. “Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.”

9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”

10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.”

11. “If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside… every positive has its negative.”

12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”

13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and ‘frozen.’…

“…any target can always say, ‘Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?’ When your ‘freeze the target,’ you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments…. Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the ‘others’ come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target…’

“One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other.” (pps.127-134)

Show Me Your Papers

Published: July 1, 2012

THE Arizona law requiring police to check the immigration status of anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally — a statute tentatively blessed last week by the Supreme Court — is an invitation to abuse. It is all too likely to be used, as the court itself seemed to fear, to intimidate and demean people with the wrong accent or skin tone, thus delivering a get-out-the-humiliated-Hispanic-vote bonus to President Obama. The less likely alternative is that it will be applied more like the random T.S.A. searches at airports, thus infuriating Arizonans across the board.

While we wait for this to play out, let’s turn our attention to another aspect of the so-called “show me your papers” law: Show me WHAT papers? What documents are you supposed to have always on hand to convince police that you are legit?

Welcome to an American paradox. This country, unlike many other developed democracies, does not require a national identification card, because the same electorate that is so afraid America is being overrun by illegal aliens also fears that we are one short step away from becoming a police state.

I’ve suggested before that, as part of any comprehensive reform of our senseless immigration laws, Americans should master their anxieties about a national identification card. The Arizona controversy reinforces my conviction.

Keller ridicules Arizona, and all Americans by first invoking the infamous “Show me your papers” line. A line made infamous through hundreds of Hollywood movies about WWII and the Cold-war where the brutally repressive Governments of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Block countries place draconian travel restrictions on their citizens and require that those citizens show properly approved documentation at multiple checkpoints whenever traveling outside of their home districts.

Keller, a life long democrat and adamant opponent of voters being required to show identification before being allowed to vote doubles his attack by immediately suggesting that American’s get over their long held phobia over a national identification card. The hypocritical double standard Keller displays here is nothing short of normal liberal cognitive dissonance. This exact same hypocritical double standard is again rearing it’s ugly head in the newest “show me your papers” scandal.

DHS proposes a national tracking database for … license plates

Let’s see if this sounds familiar. A federal agency with national-security responsibilities wants access to a vast database that tracks the actions of citizens, but promises only to use it when they really really really think they need to do so. Even though it intrudes on privacy and collects data without warrants, the agency swears it will be necessary to keep Americans safe.

The NSA and phone data? Well, sure, but now we have the DHS asking to track our license plates, too. What could go wrong … Winston?

The Department of Homeland Security wants a private company to provide a national license-plate tracking system that would give the agency access to vast amounts of information from commercial and law enforcement tag readers, according to a government proposal that does not specify what privacy safeguards would be put in place.

The national license-plate recognition database, which would draw data from readers that scan the tags of every vehicle crossing their paths, would help catch fugitive illegal immigrants, according to a DHS solicitation. But the database could easily contain more than 1 billion records and could be shared with other law enforcement agencies, raising concerns that the movements of ordinary citizens who are under no criminal suspicion could be scrutinized.

A spokeswoman for DHS’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) stressed that the database “could only be accessed in conjunction with ongoing criminal investigations or to locate wanted individuals.”

A few years ago, I would have accepted that. Today, I’m not as sanguine. Would that require a warrant? Who gets to access the data, which would be collected and stored by a private company? What constitutes a threat to public safety that would justify the mass collection of data on all Americans just to provide data-mining capabilities to DHS?

The Electronic Frontier Foundation raises the obvious point:

But civil liberties groups are not assuaged. “Ultimately, you’re creating a national database of location information,” said Jennifer Lynch, a staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation. “When all that data is compiled and aggregated, you can track somebody as they’re going through their life.”

Where is the New York Slimes and Kellers outrage over a national tracking database for license plates?

Ok, if you are not following the logic here, let me break it down for you. The New York Slimes and Keller adamantly oppose citizens being required to show identification to vote, because supposedly, such a requirement would disadvantage poor and minority citizens. Keller conveniently ignores that in every state in the Union, all legal citizens are legally required to posses some form of valid identification and to show said identification to any Law Enforcement Officer upon demand. Furthermore, that in every single state in the Union, said identification is legally required before any citizen may purchase any alcoholic beverage or tobacco product. Said identification must likewise be shown in order to cash any check, or apply for and receive any federal or state financial assistance or benefits, such as unemployment, disability, welfare or food stamps.

Keller’s suggestion of a National Identification Card is thus exposed as hypocrisy and deceit in that the national identification card proposed would be, like as already exists in the legal code of every state, be mandatory for every citizen to posses. As such, the national identification card would automatically become the De-facto standard requirement for voting.

Let us then once again return to the notorious American Marxist Revolutionary Saul Alinsky’s Guerrilla warfare hand book, Section 7, this time rule number 4.

4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”

The DHS wants a national database of license plates, the NSA is already tracing the metadate of every cell phone and phone call in America, yes Keller/New york Slimes, “Show me your papers” indeed. Let us full consider a National Identification Card, and every thing that a National Identification Card implies.

No National Identification Card, No government benefits of any kind what-so-ever, no check cashing, no alcohol or tobacco purchases, and no, if you do not have a National Identification Card, you cannot vote.

Yes, this is the notorious American Marxist Revolutionary Saul Alinsky’s Guerrilla warfare hand book, Section 7, Rule 5.

5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”

Ok, New york Slimes… Time to “Show me your Papers”…
