Skip to comments.Homeland chief: Domestic extremism is top concern (1st Amendment about to be attacked?)
Posted on 02/21/2010 3:59:22 PM PST by pillut48
WASHINGTON (AP) - Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says terrorists who are U.S. citizens or live in the country legally and plot against the U.S. are just as big of a concern as international terrorists.
She says that when she started as secretary a year ago, the focus was largely on international terrorists who want to harm U.S. interests. But in the past year, more of the violent extremism that has been seen overseas is showing up in the U.S.
She says officials need to drill down and analyze the factors that make a young person, raised in the U.S., migrate to extremist beliefs and actions.
Napolitano was speaking to governors who are in Washington for their annual conference.

If she’s looking for domestic extremists, she could try 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. or the Office of Speaker of the House.
YES ... she’s talking about US ... the “GOD, GUNS & GUTS: Let’s keep all 3” Crowd.
Napolitano needs to STFU. She destroyed Arizona just as her boss is trying to do to America. You want “domestic terrorism”? Napolitano and Obama are both domestic terrorists.
>>> Am I putting on my tin foil hat prematurely, or does anyone else feel suspicious of this?<<<
A history of the left shows that once they get into power, one of their first moves is to crush the voice (and sometimes the lives) of the opposition. The problem for the American left is that power is diffused throughout society, we have a long tradition of individual freedom, and lots of people own guns, so they’ll have to tread carefully.
But in answer to your question - a healthy lack of trust when dealing with the left is a good survival skill.
So she’s clamping down on Harvard PhD’s like Amy Bishop, then?
I’ll bet that she has Bishop’s gun in mind. Nevermind about Amy, PMS is sure to be blamed or maybe her brother abused her
She’s greasing the skids for the obamaites to start arresting conservatives and others who badmouth the govt for being “terrorists.”
When’s your next book coming TM?
“Shes greasing the skids for the obamaites to start arresting conservatives and others who badmouth the govt for being terrorists.”
When you start greasing skids you never know where you may end up.
I predict a Federal Prison for a lot of the O administration. They take the Constitution entirely too lightly.
Why are they so worried about this?? Afraid that the citizens of the United States will take the constitution seriously??? I think I smell something nasty.
I read the entire article but didn't see the word "Muslim" anyplace.
Did I miss something?
Or did Janet?
Amen to that!!!!
Clinton redux. This is all about silencing your political opposition. Neapolitano has already shown her hand.
I don’t think this is a tin foil hat moment.
That “woman” (and i use the term loosly) is in a position of great power.
She has already stated publicly that her primary concerns are Pro-life Activists, People who don’t approve of Illegal Aliens, People who group together with other people who think like they do, 2nd Amendment Advocates, and Returning Veterans.
That would be you and me.
She’s after the 1st AND the 2nd Amendments! Two birds with one stone, in her craven mind.
She surely must be talking about the organized domestic terrorists who are responsible for the overwhelming majority of attacks on logging company property, SUV dealerships, animal research scientists, Starbucks storefronts, defense contractor entrances, military recruiting stations, etc.
Janet Napolitano has a domestic agenda. It is either approved of or originated with Barack 0bama, Pelosi, etc. It existed before she was appointed and probably was the reason she, specifically, was appointed.
As time goes by this agenda seems scarier and scarier. And she would pull the trigger on anything, I am convinced.
No tin foil required. Only constant vigilance.
Issuing a BOLO for sturdy little buzzcut control freaks named Janet would be an excellent start at nipping domestic extremism in the bud, Ms. Napolitano.
Didn’t hillary personally sign the okay to allow some usa hating imam into the country just this week?
Posted on FR before, worth doing again. Why every single person should own firearms. And be willing to use them.
Are we going to stand around doing nothing when Hussein's Brown shirts start coming for our neighbors? Make no mistake, Napolitano and her minions are apparently being groomed as the new Brown Shirts.
If I say I think that janet incompetano is an incompetent, anti-American, marxist, facist freako will I go to a reeducation camp or be snuffed?
The question is: What are we going to do about it?
Write a nice, polite letter to your Congressperson?
Hey, if you think that will help, Ive got a bridge you might be interested in buying. And it isnt your bridge to the future, either.
Vote better people, into office? Oh yeah, thats what we thought we were doing before.
Work to fight one bad bill or another. Okay. What will you do about the 10 or 20 or 100 equally horrible bills that will be passed behind your backwhile you were fighting that little battle?
And what about the horrors you dont even learn about until two or three years after they become law? Should you try fighting these laws in the courts?
Where do you find the resources?
Where do you find a judge who doesnt have a vested interrest in a more powerful government?
And again, for every one case decided in favor of freedom, what do you do about the 10, 20 or 100 in which the courts decide against the Bill of Rights?
Perhaps youd consider trying to stop the onrush of these horrors with a constitutional amendment - maybe one that bans omnibus bills, requires that every law meet a constitutional test or requires all congress people to sign statements that they theyve read and understood every every aspect of every bill on which they vote.
Good Luck! Good luck, first on getting such an amendment passed and our Constitution-scorning leaders to obey it.
It is true, that the price of liberty is eternal vigilance, and part of that vigilance has been, traditionally keeping a watchful eye on laws and on lawbreaking lawmakers.
But given the current pace of law spewing and unconstitutional regulation-writing, you could watch, plead and struggle within the system 24-hours a day for your entire life and end up infinitely less free than when you begin.
Why throw your life away on a futile effort?
If working within the system could halt tyranny, the tryants would outlaw it.
Why do you think they encourage you to vote, to write letters, to talk to them in public forums?
Its to divert your energies. To keep you tame.
the system is a maze. You run around thinking youre getting somewhere. Your masters occasionally reward you, and this encourages you to believe youre accomplishing something.
And in the meantime, you are as much their property and their pawn as if you were a slave.
In the effort of fighting them on their terms and with their authorized and approved tools, you have given your lifes energy to them as if you were toiling in their cotton fields, under the lash of their overseer.
The only way were going to get out is personally, as individuals, refuse to cooperate with evil.
How we do that is up to each of us. I cant decide for you, nor you for me. (Unlike congress people, who think they can decide for everybody.)
But this totalitarian runaway truck is never going to stop unless we stop it any way we can. Stopping it might include any number of things: tax resistance; public civil disobedience wide-scale, silent non-cooperation, highly noisy non-cooperation , boycotts; secession efforts; monkey wrenching; computer hacking; dirty tricks against government agencies; alternative, self-sufficient communities that provide their own food and utilities.
There are thousands of avenues to take, and this is something most of us still need to give more thought to before we can build an effective resistance. We will each choose the courses that are right for our own circumstances, personalities and beliefs.
Whatever we do, though, we must remember that we are all, already, outlaws.
No one of us can be certain going through a single day without violating some law or regulation weve never heard of. We are all guilty in the eyes of todays law.
If someone in power chooses to arrest us, we can all, already, be prosecuted for something. And Im sure you know that your claim of innocence is not treated under similar claims of our politicians.
Politicians are above the law.
YOU are under it.
Crushed under it.
When you look at it that way, we have little to lose by breaking laws creatively and purposefully.
Yes, some of us will suffer horrible consequences and it is very risky to actively resist unbridled power. It is especially risky to go public with resistance. It becomes riskier the closer we get to tyranny.
For that reason, among many others,I would advise you to really think twice before taking advice from anybody about from anybody about things effecting your life and well-being. But if we dont resist in the best ways we know how and if we dont resist we will be working the system governed by those who regard us as nothing but cattle. The revolution against We the People will not be stopped by politeness.
It will not be stopped by pleading for justice from those who will resort to any degree of trickery or violence to rule us.
It will not be stopped unless we are willing to risk our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honors to stop it.
I think of the words of Winston Churchill: If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and -you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you for your survival....There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory...because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.
STOPPING RUNAWAY GOVERNMENT:

SEC. 802. DEFINITION OF DOMESTIC TERRORISM. (a) DOMESTIC TERRORISM DEFINED.Section 2331 of title 18, United States Code, is amended (5) the term domestic terrorism means activities that (A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.. (b)
CONFORMING AMENDMENT.Section 3077(1) of title 18, United States Code, is amended to read as follows: (1) act of terrorism means an act of domestic or international terrorism as defined in section 2331
I wonder how the government might define “intimidation or coercion.” Anyone thinking of joining a militia might want to read various sections of the Patriot Act. It a gift of power to the Feds that some militia members supported giving...without even reading the Act. The conspiracy law in the act not only goes to a groups actions but also to any govternment perceived threatning conversations by its members. Between RICO, the Patriot Act and the federal definition of conspiracy, militias will only exist if the government allows it. But most people will continue to suffer the delusion that America is the Land Of The Free.
She and people of her ilk are the reason I joined our armed services in the 70s and fought the Cold War.
I will stand and fight for my Country and Constitution again, ANY TIME, ANY PLACE, and I hope some will stand with me.
It is likely to start with an IRS audit and go from there... no joke either.
“...and I hope some will stand with me.”
Would not be surprising to see millions standing with you.
She’s right.... ecoterrorists have burned buidings, and animal rights groups have broken into labs and freed the lab animals, spreading bacteria.
Okay, we have 1 guy flying a plane into a building and we also have this:
You tell me which is worse.
I don’t think she’s talking about Bill Ayers (a real terrorist). This administration is very paranoid. The fact that they are constantly looking over their shoulder tells you they’re up to no good. Hopefully, they will be gone in a couple more years and America will be normal again.
Damn right, and not a second too soon.
The "Congressional Progressive Caucus" are domestic terrorists who must be targeted and destroyed as well their allies in the press and academia.
No holds barred, take no prisoners, name names and make these red bastards pay dearly for the consequences of nearly one hundred years of insidious and unrelenting attacks on capitalism and judeo-christian morality.
This butch bully has now just about equated the Tea Party with the muhammedan terrorists, and musT be forced to resign immediately before he follows in RENOS footsteps and massacres scores of Christians for no particularly good reason.
THE GOP MUST CALL FOR HIS RESIGNATION.
Code for “patriots”? You bet!
She must mean Amy Bishop.
Yikes! Don’t DO that.
Yeah, that’s what I thought!!
< chants ‘only 3 more years, 3 more years’ to self >
“I will stand and fight for my Country and Constitution again, ANY TIME, ANY PLACE, and I hope some will stand with me.”
I’ve got your six.
More than a little creepy.
