The rules now allow the little-known National Counterterrorism Center to examine the government files of U.S. citizens for possible criminal behavior, even if there is no reason to suspect them.

Fourth Amendment has now been reduced to toilet paper. The Fed has become increasingly paranoid of the people. Sure sign of a government in late-stage corruption.
Why would you have thought that they weren’t already doing this?
Nothing this government does surprises me anymore. I used to think we would never allow it.
I was wrong.
But the First and Second Amendments are trickier. In the Venezuela/Chavez playbook, the Chicago Rats running the nation will next seek to shut up "enemy" media.
Constitutionalist blogs can be quietly hacked, degraded and corrupted as part of any number of secret DHS-sponsored efforts. Expect to see Drudge, Breitbart, FR etc begin to have "problems" nobody can quite fix.
Any independent media which tries to cover union thuggery will get beaten up or worse, and the POTUS will say nothing, and the MSM won't cover it. This is right out of the Chavez handbook.
But the really big nut is the 2nd Amd. That is a very thorny problem for the creeping statist tyrants-in-waiting. How to divest the millions of bitter clingers from their guns???
The statists must curse the founding fathers with every breath for their vision of future attempts to install tyrannies.

Yes, I saw a post yesterday that said there were 1,000,000 conceal carry permits in Florida. A certain number of those have long guns, I would imagine. Multiply that by the number of states in a similar situation and you have the potential for quite a standing army, albeit less technology than others, but so did the Patriots of the late 18th century. I believe Admiral Yamamoto warned Japan against any proposed invasion of the U.S. during WW II as there would be “a rifle behind every blade of grass”.
We have a Gestapo? wow.. things happen quick.
