Article Body: 
Republicans and conservatives are fond of referencing Chicago community organizer Saul Alinsky, but how many have read his body of work?  I've always referred to Alinsky's secular agitator bible, Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals, as the sequel to The Communist Manifesto.  Published in 1972, shortly before Alinsky's death, Rules was a significant part of President Obama's and Hillary Clinton's political upbringings – although he more influenced Obama, who followed in Alinsky's community organizing footsteps in Chicago in the '80s. 
 
Alinsky's thirteen rules are effective.  The first step to challenging them is actually recognizing them.
 
Here's how Democrats and the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex) Alinsky-ized Brett Kavanaugh, in the lead up to, during, and after his U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearings.
 
1: "Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have."...
 
2. "Never go outside the expertise of your people."...
 
3. "Whenever possible go outside the expertise of the enemy."...
 
4. "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules."...
 
5. "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon."...
 
6. "A good tactic is one your people enjoy."...
 
7. "A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag."...
 
8. "Keep the pressure on."...
 
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."...
 
11. "If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside."...
 
12. "The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative."...
 
13. "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it."...
