Is the Immigration Issue the Pretext for Martial Law?

The gateway for a lock down of America seems not far away. This seems as good a reason as any for declaring martial law. Add a "terrorist" car bomb attempt in Times Square and all the makings for total government control are present. See this series of three stories to follow where this is possibly headed.

Riot breaks out in downtown Santa Cruz; windows broken on dozens of businesses, porch of cafe set on fire

SANTA CRUZ - A group of protesters demonstrating at a May Day rally for worker's and immigrant rights downtown broke off into a riot vandalizing about a dozen businesses around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, police said.

Windows were left shattered and graffiti including anarchy signs were tagged onto buildings. The Rittenhouse Building, Urban Outfitters, Jamba Juice and Velvet Underground all had windows broken, according to Capt. Steve Clark.

Santa Cruz police asked for help from all agencies in the county to break up the riot. At one point, protesters lit a fire on the porch of Caffe Pergolesi and blocked access to firefighters, officers said. Police were able to clear out the demonstrators before more damage was caused.

A large rock sat outside Verizon Wireless on the 100 block of Cooper Street, where vandals tried to break the window twice, according to Clark.

"The damage that was caused was without purpose," Clark said. "It was senseless violence that victimized a community who cannot afford to be victimized in this manner. This did nothing to add credit to whatever they believed their cause was."

Anger over Arizona immigration law drives rallies
By SOPHIA TAREEN

Angered by a controversial Arizona immigration law, tens of thousands of protesters _ including 50,000 alone in Los Angeles _ rallied in cities nationwide demanding President Barack Obama tackle immigration reform immediately.

From Los Angeles to Washington, activists, families, students and even politicians marched, practiced civil disobedience and "came out" about their citizenship status in the name of rights for immigrants, including the estimated 12 million living illegally in the United States.

"I want to thank the governor of Arizona because she's awakened a sleeping giant," said labor organizer John Delgado, who attended a rally in New York where authorities estimated 6,500 gathered.

A Democratic congressman was among 35 people arrested during a protest at the White House. U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez was taking part in a civil disobedience demonstration.

Napolitano: Administration 'certainly considering' possibility of terrorism in car bomb
By Bridget Johnson and Michael O'Brien - 05/02/10 09:11 AM ET

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Sunday morning that the administration is "certainly considering" that the car bomb found in New York's Times Square could be an act of terror.

"Luckily, no one is hurt, and now the full attention of city, state and federal law enforcement will be turned to bringing the guilty party to justice in this act of terrorism," New York Gov. David Paterson said in a statement.

When asked about Paterson's characterization of the incident, in which a T-shirt vendor noticed smoke coming from the back of an SUV and notified police, Napolitano said forensic evidence plus video footage from the area was being analyzed.

"We're certainly considering it now that it could be an act of terrorism or was intended to be an act of terrorism," Napolitano said on "Fox News Sunday."

Napolitano said they were "not ruling anything out."

It is a possibility

that the Powers That Be are using a problem-reaction-solution model to make the society more totalitarian and authoritarian using the genuine problem of illegal immigration. We have to guard against that.

What strikes me is the hypocrisy of those who have criticized the non-violent Tea Party, a genuine American populist movement (like our own). Riot policy greeted Tea Partyers in Illinois where Obama spoke. Yet, people many of whom are not even citizens are allowed to vandalize property and run amock and no one says anything about it. That's got to change or we are doomed.

Yes it is.

"We must protect from illegal immigration."

"Show me your papers."

CHA-CHING!

It's the pretext

to end posse comitatus.

Posse comitatus?

This has been gone since Billy Clinton.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

strange things are happening lately.

Oh, its a setup, all right!

Its also a way to get the bio-metric I.D. saddled onto us!

From the article: "Angered by

From the article: "Angered by a controversial Arizona immigration law, tens of thousands of protesters _ including 50,000 alone in Los Angeles _ rallied in cities nationwide demanding President Barack Obama tackle immigration reform immediately."

So, they are calling on Obama to tackle immigration reform immediately? They must have heard of the plan he supports. A form of amnesty followed by biometric national ID. That is Obama and the democrats plan.
Ron Paul is opposed to it big time(he's been speaking out against amnesty and national ID cards for years). So are almost all of the other republicans, even the kings of amnesty John McCain and Lindsey Graham have backed away from the democrat immigration reform plan(even though Graham reportedly helped Chuck Schumer write it).

Seems foolish to riot in the streets demanding rights for illegal aliens and demanding Obama pass immigration reform, when his plan is a terrible plan that Ron Paul is totally opposed to.

SteveMT's picture

Unfortunately, when have they ever listened to Ron Paul?

The country is so polarized on this as well as other issues, that not much will be needed to cause widespread multi-state violence.

ID-cards, retinal scans, and low paying jobs for the illegals and FEMA camps for us.

Thanks for your post.

I hope that no more unrest

I hope that no more unrest and violence happens than has already happened, but I wouldn't be surprised unfortunately, if more happens. Look back at what happened in California during the debate about proposition 187, a republican backed effort which involved removing welfare benefits from illegal aliens. That created massive unrest and anger among hispanics, and was claimed to be the real start of the hispanic exodus to the democrat party(those who claim this new Arizona law is driving hispanics to be democrats need to look back at prop 187 and study that issue to see why a majority of hispanics went to the democrat party).

I just read that the Arizona Republic newspaper seems to be lamenting the fact that senator McCain and Kyl used to favor comprehensive immigration reform(most people know that comprehensive immigration reform, when used by politicians, means passing a form of amnesty with weak/ineffective enforcement measures along with biometric national ID), but they no longer do. If the Arizona republic wants McCain and Kyl to back Obama to pass his favored plan of immigration reform, I hope the Arizona republic goes out of business, since I couldn't disagree more.

Obama's laughing all the way to the bank.

Part of his "collateral damage".

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

SteveMT's picture

It seems that we are playing right into their control grid.

Even if a state like Arizona tries to protect itself from tyranny, that effort is turned around and used against that state.

How do the states fight this or any other kind of tyranny when this mechanism is in place?

"Even if a state like Arizona

"Even if a state like Arizona tries to protect itself from tyranny"

You are making me lose faith in humanity. This got argued into the ground a couple of days ago.

CHA-CHING!

that's what I'm thinking

That was what I commented about in a different post. What is the Feds intent on doing nothing about illegal immigration and allowing the issue to fester and cause so much anger and division. There is a purpose behind everything and the plans have been put in place for a long time. I think maybe the AZ law put a clink in their plans, I could be wrong, maybe it was part of the plan, who knows. It's hard to say. I just don't like what I'm seeing.

chinkadaro

As Ron Paul says, the awareness has never been greater.

Fear not, there will be so many "clinks" in their path, that the UN/NATO take over and the Teflon Mexi-con weaponization of migrants will turn about face on them. The mexican citizen is just like me. I don't think the elites realize how small their "ACORN" minions really are, compare to the liberty seeking Mexican whom are being held hostage, as our police, teachers and firemen are being held hostage by their forced voting on union sychophantic guidlines.
From what I see, the entire world is awakening, as they watch their cultures and creatures become extinct.
Expose, expose, expose.

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

I agree with you folks

this whole illegal alien thing is a set up and the building of the control apparatus of a police state.

Prepare & Share the Message of Freedom through Positive-Peaceful-Activism.

Yes!

Instead of WE THE PEOPLE ruling the government...

...it is the government ruling the people.

.

Just another example how the corporate special interests split the issue and promote the tyranical solution to a problem.

Foreign owned corporations need police forces to enforce their contracts and protect their US interests.

Increasingly US police forces are merely an extention of a foreign King's army through the 'rule of law'.

WE THE PEOPLE need to work to reduce the number of police, resolve our own problems and provide for our own security.

If we were to do this we could easily layoff 50% of the donut patrols and solve many of our public budget problems.

...and with 50% less law enforcement the foreign banking interests and corporate lobbyists would have to find other ways to repossess property and run their legal games on us.

Possession is nine tenths of the law. Too many police threaten our possession and enable corporate and foreign interests to steal from us.

Bump.

Immigration is a game.

The police state has arrived.

AJ is right about that.

Thanks for comment.
