Skip to comments.FBI warns of threat from anti-government extremists
Posted on 02/07/2012 7:52:42 AM PST by Twotone
Anti-government extremists opposed to taxes and regulations pose a growing threat to local law enforcement officers in the United States, the FBI warned on Monday.
These extremists, sometimes known as "sovereign citizens," believe they can live outside any type of government authority, FBI agents said at a news conference.
The extremists may refuse to pay taxes, defy government environmental regulations and believe the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard.

I think I might be an extremist.
FBI thinks they work for King George. ;-)
Yeah, that sure is threatening...
By the way: Since when is a citizen having a particular belief any concern of the government's?
May? The FBI sure has a caseload then, starting with the entire Obama cabinet and Timmy Geitner at the top of the list..........
Voting for non-Democrats is extremist activity.
GET BACK IN LINE!!!!!!!!!!!
I am an extremist, but only because every body else (with the exception of my fellow FReepers & sundry others) has moved left.
I think it’s important to point that out to folks now & again.
It really does sound like they’re describing the average OWS protestor more than your typical Tea party type. Look at the evidence: they live in tents on public property; they flaunt US laws by using and trafficking drugs; we have seen them defecating in cop cars; they obviously don’t pay taxes because they’re unemployed; and they’re associated with radical left wing fire bomb throwing anarchist types.
Who is threatening to whom here? And who gives a rip what signal is being sent? We probably need to know who the jackboots are going to be anyway, and sooner than later. The ones who recognize exactly what is happening here are aging fast. The very young can’t even spell collapse, or tyranny, or Marxism.
You’ve opened this thread....!
And now, YOU are on THE LIST!
Ditto all that! You read my mind.
But I am a master of disguise & they will only have a clue as to my true identity! ;-)
Actually, I’m probably on LOTS of lists these days.
Obama and his admin have:
1) Support the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Quida take overs of Egypt and Libya.
2) Do not lift a finger to help true liberty protesters in Iran.
3) Decide not to indict or go after Black Panthers who blatantly stood outside polling/vitong places in 2008 and intimidate voters.
4) HAs brazenly flaunted and broken US law to provide illegal arms to MExican Drug cartels in the hopes of border violence so they cancrack down on US gun onwership, and then lied under oath abpout it and conspired to cover it up with Fast and Furios (http://www.jeffhead.com/fandf.htm)
5) Call an ISlamic Jihad attack by a traitor ISlamic US Officer at Ft. Hood “office violence.”
6) Refuse to call our foight against Islamic Terrorists a War on Terror, but instead label it “foreign expediency operations,” or some such babble.
7) Warned Americans that returning American servicemen, who have risked their lives for our liberty against the Islamic extremeist, may be terrorist minded themselves if they are Christian.
8) Disdain Bible clinging, gun-toting Americans as extremist...both of which, BTW, are rights enumerated in the Constitution.
9) MAde political war on Christian charities and Church run hospitals by demanding that the provide abortions in their facilities against the basic tennants and beliefs of the chuirchs that operate those charities and hospitals.
10) Now warn that American soveriegn citizens (which we all are meant to be) themselves mught be “terrorists.”
It could not be more clear. The Obama administration is doubling down on its efforts to declare war on and oppress and hound and ultimately find reason to incarcerate American citizens who have faith in, believe in, and rely upon the fundamental moral values that created this nation and have kept it strong, free, prosperous and safe for over 230 years.
Obama is an abject marxist Ideolog and must be defeated in 2012
America at the Crossroads of History
coming back around...American citizens were high on the list of publicly announced threats the first months bozo took office....
“RC one - It really does sound like theyre describing the average OWS protestor more than your typical Tea party type...”
We currently have an adminsitration that supports ‘The OCCUPIERS’, and what they stand for ~ Class Warfare.
Ideology vs. civility
We have a Canadian website (funded by Soros) inciting to “return to the spirit of 1968 (Convention CHAOS)”.
Who are the criminals ?
The ethics of this administration is ‘upsde down’.
if i choose paper over plastic, i'm an extremist now?
as for going bankrupt, it didn't happen when the US went off the gold standard... that's just when it started
and i'm pretty sure the majority of ron paul supporters would be classified a extremists under this thinking
of course, having went Galt and stopped working... thereby not supplying them with the amount of tax revenue they were use to... i'm sure i'm now classified as an extremist
Watch out, Sheriff Joe!
i’m 100% certain if you believe article 2 section 1 should not be discarded...
you must be an extremist
The Democrats aren’t afraid of guns. They just want to be sure they’re the ones telling people who to point the guns at.
Not that sh!t again. The last time that the elderly 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus spoiled brats and their spoiled-brat issue (the Clinton Adm.) controlled the government they spent all effort watching them Christians.
Meanwhile radical Muslims were taking lessons on how to fly wide-body jet liners into office buildings.
you forgot the whole *law* that allows citizens to be detained, indefinately, at the whim of the totus...
FBI warning not just to those who have denounced their citizenship but to the rest of those EXTREMEISTS (70% of the American population) who think the government is too intrusive.
Extremists = “Followers of The Constitution”
anyone that isn’t a government employee is an extremist as far as our ruling elite and their agents paid by the taxpayers are concerned
“The Democrats arent afraid of guns. They just want to be sure theyre the ones telling people who to point the guns at.”
A yes, simply maintaining a long standing tradition.
Catch the pic of Senator Diane, “Turn them all in” on this page.
Oh boy, here it comes. There will be, for some reason, a martial law declared before November.
The Food and Beverage, Inc. do work for King Obama who is still a British citizen.
Obama, the President of the U.S., Is Currently Also a British Citizen
As the Feds become more extremist tyrants of the Left an increasing amount of Americans move to the Right who don’t want any part of that.
I forget but how many members of obama’s admin owe back taxes again?
I’m sure I would be tagged an extremist, though I advocate following all laws - render unto Caesar. I’ve written two books that explain how we are being forced as citizens to the edge by political and monetary policy:
Because we are spending as a nation 40% more than we pay in taxes, the Fed Reserve must destroy the currency. That is taxation without representation, because inflation is a tax. To survive, citizns will have to take measures to protect themselves against the ravages of inflation (biflation really). Those measures are always throughout history eventually made illegal by the state.
My advice is to stay completely legal, but to take the measures you can to get off the roller coaster. There’s quite a lot you can do. The state won’t like it, but from verything I can see we are headed towards a Greek like economic collapse, so it will be every man for himself.
That says it all!
If it's your slogan, copyright it, now.
I REALLY hate to say this but I know a few SC types. They really have gone off the deep end and believe they can live in the US, consider themselves covered by the privileges of the Constitution but then claim they have no responsibility to pay taxes, obey reasonable laws, or answer to our courts. They are like liberals: Little children that are anti-authoritarian.
I recall reading about that vote— extending the Homeland Security bill passed in the Senate a few months back.
My reading on it was somewhat hurried, but one commentator noted that the “indefinite extension” provisions applied specifically to individuals associated with the events of 9-ll and the parties responsible.
In other words, it was pretty well limited to a specific group of terrorists of a specific event, not a broad and general designation.
On the other hand, the decision announced by the administration (last year, or two years ago? ) to strike the word Islamist or Muslim from any reference to terrorism (arguing that it was defamatory or prejudiced or some such) was ominous.
Maybe somebody with a better grasp on this can fill in here.
Who exactly did they mention? Just the SC types? Or was it general enough to describe almost anyone on the political Right?
Good points. Sadly they are true. Our public schools have succeeded in their main goals -- to indoctrinate the subjects to accept an all powerful State.
The left has succeeded in making those that rail against the government as being overbearing as a direct attack on Obama.
To the evil left, an attack on the State is an attack on Obama. Now..... where did we hear such analogy in the past.... oh yea, "Attack Germany, you attack the Führer"
The “Sovern Citizens” are following Admiralty law which is the rule of the Seas between nations.
Here it is explained,
and here is another,
‘The extremists may refuse to pay taxes, defy government environmental regulations and believe the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard’————
That just described congress, the hollywood ‘stars’, hip hop ‘artists’ and the Obama administration.
So who’s the extremists?
Homeland security has tried to label ex-military, gun-owners and militia members as terrorists. Now the FBI is trying to create a new classification of outlaw that likely includes most FReepers.
It strikes me as ominous.
Thanks for the ping.
I know all about it and the twisted logic they use, including that “Admiralty Flag” BS they conjured up.
