Back in April of 2009 Department of Homeland Security’s Janet Napolitano sent a report to all law enforcement officers in the US advising them to keep an eye on US military veterans because they are likely to become terrorists. Do you remember that? Military Veterans likely to become terrorists- Hold that thought for a moment.
Terrorist is defined as a radical who employs terror as a political weapon, usually organizes with other terrorists in small cells, often uses religion as a cover for terrorist activities.
Terrorism is defined as the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion.
To date, the Tea Party, anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage citizens, aside from Veterans, have been labeled ‘likely to become terrorists’. In fact, the Southern Poverty Law Center published last year their report titled Rage on the Right. We were lumped together with neo-Nazi, Patriot militias, and nativist extremists. To be considered by SPLC as an extremist group the group must be engaged in highly confrontational actions, using hate speech and support violent tactics. Hmm.
In 2009 the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis report titled: Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate fueling resurgence in radicalization and recruitment.
Extremism is defined as an ideology or political act far outside the perceived political center of a society; or otherwise claimed to violate common moral standards.
Within that report, conservatives were identified. That put us in the arena with groups such as ALF, ELF and Stop Huntingdon. Rightwing extremism is defined (within the report) as
Rightwing extremism in the US can be broadly divided into those groups, movements and adherents that are primarily hate oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration. (THIS is on page 2 of their report if you’d care to fact check it).
On page 7 of the same report we have this (U) Disgruntled Military Veterans. DHS/I&A assesses that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat. These skills and knowledge have the potential to boost the capabilities of extremists – including lone wolves or small terrorist cells – to carry out violence. The willingness of a small percentage of military personnel to join extremist groups during the 1990s b/c they were disgruntled, disillusioned, or suffered from the psychological effects of war is being replicated today.
By now you get the picture that WE are the problem not the incompetent and corrupt politicians, officials, department heads and their friends.
Recall the definition I supplied of terrorism and extremism. Now let’s consider some facts shall we:
If the new health care law is so great, then why is the Obama administration allowing so many organizations to opt out of it? According to the Department of Health and Human Services, more than 1000 organizations have received Obamacare waivers so far.
Back in 1913, the federal tax code was a whopping 400 pages long. Today the federal tax code is approximately 70,000 pages long.
Barack Obama and the Federal Reserve keep trying to convince us all that we are in an economic recovery and yet the number of Americans on food stamps has surpassed the 44 million mark for the first time ever.
The "entitlement mindset" that permeates not only the U.S. government but also much of the voting public was clearly displayed recently when a union protester in Wisconsin asked a counter rally activist the following question: 'Why do you have a right to your money?' Politician Howard Dean echoes this thought by publicly declaring that it is the 'job of the government' to redistribute wealth.
I don’t know about you but I’d say these few examples could be defined as extreme.
But the crème de la crème are the two letters coming from Obama’s union buddies in Wisconsin. The first to Republican Representatives with direct threats to their lives and the second to business owners to ‘support collective bargaining’ or else. IF these are not examples of terrorism w/implied coercion or the act of a terrorist, I don’t know what is.
The truth of the matter is our government and their friends no longer believe they are answerable to our laws or to We the People, but is very much answerable to ‘some’. Make no mistake - what we are witnessing is a runaway and unlawful federal government and its allies that are damn close to destroying the United States of America. Their unconstitutional actions are countless. Obama’s Press conference last week should have been more than enough of a wake up call.
Rush summed it up best: Obama says the Republicans want cuts in the budget that he won't accept, and Obama said he's tired of people using the budget to advance ideological and political objectives. Can you believe the outrage that somebody would do that? He totally opposes using the budget to advance anybody's ideological objectives. He only says this when the Republicans are in charge of writing the budget, by the way. His whole budget, all of it, every dime that we don't have that he spends is about advancing his totalitarian agenda.
On Craig’s List a message was uploaded during school hours on Friday, supposedly from a teacher in Michigan that threatens Tea Party’s children. While no one knows if in fact this is from a teacher – look at this threat: So you Tea Bags want to take away my hard earned blue ribbon bennies. Well guess what you scum sucking Tea Bags, I got your kids all day long in my classroom and with just a few slick questions I know who the little tea bags are! And you think you'll have the last laugh HA-Ha-ha. Yup, we’re being held captive by a select few.
So, what do we do? from The Post and Email wrote this Sunday about the Retaking of America and What we can do to help. Most of his piece covered what I wrote about on Saturday – America needs you and please consider running for a representative position. But what he ended his piece with was perfect and thus I’m sharing: 'None of what I’m suggesting will be easy, but then again, neither is slavery to a communist government easy or comfortable. We Americans have done an excellent job of creating the most successful and beneficial country on the face of the planet, but while we were working and supporting our families, our churches, and our communities, our enemies have sneaked into our camp and have been eating the fruits of our labor and destroying the future of our children. This criminal action by our enemies must be reversed, and will be reversed, when we patriots retake America'.
WE are not the problem - WE are the answer!
