The Pincer Strategy

Update: January 20, 2012
Dan Armstrong covered Michigan Emergency Manager issue two days ago, reporting this story finally going nationwide! Watch video, then read the full report here.

pincer movement noun

  • a military attack by two coordinated forces that close in on an enemy position from different directions
  • a combination of two forces acting against an opposing force

Except in our example we show the Double Pincer; what else need be said?

If the National Defense Appropriations Act withstands constitutional challenges, the term "belligerent" will apply to United States citizens and we can be held indefinably, without charge or trial. If Stop Online Piracy Act /Protect IP Act are passed, your ability to communicate via any electronic means will be heavily censored. The Enemy Expatriation Act will allow the United States government to strip you of your citizenship without hearing. {EEA verbage bottom of post}

And finally the story Rachel Maddow calls the most under-reported story of 2011; Emergency Financial managers who in Michigan have the power to dissolve school boards and city governments.

The financial managers are not elected by the populace; they hold appointed positions. In Michigan they answer to no one, except the Governor. Their duties have very elastic parameters.

There is a movement among our fellow citizens to shrink the size of the federal government and restore the power appropriated by the federal government back to the states. That seems like a reasonable thing to do unless your state is an Emergency Financial manager state or is considering that option for school districts, cities and counties in trouble.

"Oh, come on! That is a lot of 'if's.'" someone is bound to say.
However if two of four pieces of legislation stand, outspoken citizens against civil injustice and their support affiliates like Medic and Media, will be legally herded and jailed, away from the rest of the population, potentially without trial. If three or four of those pieces of legislation stand, protesters will be squashed like a bug. If you are angry but not active; get active. If you are neither angry or active; what other information can we provide you?
