Skip to comments.FBI warns letters to governors could stir violence ["Guardians of the Free Republics"]
Posted on 04/02/2010 1:33:53 PM PDT by Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo
WASHINGTON The FBI is warning police across the country that an anti-government group's call to remove governors from office could provoke violence.
The group called the Guardians of the free Republics wants to "restore America" by peacefully dismantling parts of the government, according to its Web site. It sent letters to governors demanding they leave office or be removed.
Investigators do not see threats of violence in the group's message, but fear the broad call for removal of top state officials could lead others to act out violently. At least two states beefed up security in response...

It’s that Jim Thompson dude again, isn’t it?
Words and ideas are apparently dangerous.....
.....But the truly radical, militant left is now tolerated main-stream society (or so they would like you believe).
That sounds like a bogus group used to discredit this fine group of people...
We ARE having a political coo. Some representatives are VIOLATING the will of the people. This is also called tyranny. The bribery and corruption is unprecedented.
If they ‘don’t see threats of violence’ then what’s the big stink? It ‘might’ lead others to violence? Poppycock and excuses. Are they going to go after Rush for saying we should get rid of the b*stards. Vote them out. I don’t like this trend at all.
It's quite okay for union thugs to intimidate white voters when Obama was running for President but any HINT of that on the opposite side is exaggerated and squashed down.
can’t even have a little political discourse these days ..
Back off FBI, the socialist administration has and is continueing to usurp the authority of we, the people.
Wasn’t there an article a couple of days ago saying that the state government in one of the southwestern states went on the alert due to a warning of some sort from the FBI to the governors?
I suspect this is chiefly another effort on the part of the FBI to increase tension and anxiety and to villainize conservatives.
Is it now a crime to ask a governor to step down? I thought that Obama and the NY Times just did precisely that to Governor Patterson a while ago—and then pressured him in various ways until he agreed not to run against Andrew Cuomo.
Is it illegal to write negative letters to politicians now? They already said there were no threats in the letters.
CopperCard is the parent site. They’re apparently Ron Paul-Alex Jones kind of people.
Wouldn’t want to be an FBI Agent right now, or Secret Service Agent either for at least a few more years. I wonder if any of them are Oathkeepers.
That website was registered a month ago.
....and disinformation. Communists use these tactics to deceive the ignorant. Divide and conquer.
Oath Keepers? Nope!
do away with about 80 percent of ALL govt and we’d certainly have a much better system/
Bab-b-que all those let go.
Using Big green eggs.
What do you want to bet that this group gets blamed on us?
Words have precise meanings. The socialist policies in DC may provoke violence. The concern here is that this group's letters could trigger the violence provoked by politicians who ignore the Constitution.
It is as clear as the greying hair on the top of ol' Obongo's noggin.
Too bad. I hope they remember when it comes time for peaceful transition of government that they take their oath to the Constitution and not any one man.
I saw this this morning and the words “free republics” and said, Oh! Oh! I was wondering whether the FBI was trying to paint us as ‘the’ group?
Seriously, doesn't this sound like something that "They" would dream up???
Has anyone yet figured out the name of the owner of the website?
Anyone who swore an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies is a guardian of the Republic. So if this be treason, then make the most of it.
A couple months ago, justpiper noticed that in one photograph of the current prez with his SS detail — that all of the SS in the pic were black. I think it was in some messagethread about Malcolm X, maybe....
They are working overtime to shut down legitmate Patriot Dissent, and they will necessarily first target the "fringe" (which may or may not even bear any resemblance to where you and I are coming from), dispense with them, and then gradually move into the center wherein and whereby you and yours and I may well be detained or hauled off to Sensitivity Camps. I am sure it is in an Obama Administration strategy paper somewhere, composed by his domestic policy advisors in the WH and chopped off (approved) by other major government units, such as FBI, DHS, FCC, etc. etc.
This Tea Party business of 2009 has shocked the hell out of them, and they are not taking it lying down, for they fear their whole house of cards coming down throughout this year. Such is the nature of tyranny. Such is the nature of Marxist-Leninists, which they are. Ask any Soviet defector now in the West who was in intelligence, they would tell you to a man or a woman what and whom Obama and his inner circle and lower apparatchiks are. Little wonder they have sarcastically nicknamed him "Patrice Lumumba Salvador Allende Maurice Bishop Obongo".
The FBI, DHS, DPS, etc guys need to get to AA real quick and get a sponsor.
They are drunk all the time on something and are in terrible need of help.
And I expect we’ll start hearing from Jim Thompson soon. Poor guy’s been nothing but a trouble maker since losing his job at the Post Office. Newman!
Sounds like french...with a heavy texas accent.
The hourly news on the radio last hour said that Governor Perry got one of these letters.
Sounds extemely violent. </sarcasm>
Interesting. Do they wear bow ties too? (Nation of Islam style). Maybe they have all Black SS details so they can say whatever they want without fear it will show up in the news. I remember reading early on about a SS agent who complained that Michelle and the girls were making racist comments about whites. That story died very quickly, I didn’t read anything else about the complaint, it just disappeared.
Does civil war help or harm national health? If Obamacare foments civil war, does it promote better health?
Over thirty governors so far have received a letter telling them that they have “three days to leave office” or they will be “forcibly removed.”
This doesn’t strike you as a threat?
Agents provocateurs. How many people are worried more about the growth of STATE power as opposed to FEDERAL power? Not many, I’d bet. Why go after governors? We’re more worried about Reps, Senators and Presidents.
I’m sure I misspelled the word. It is a political takeover of the government over the will of the people. Demoncraps don’t care about what the people they represent want. It doesn’t matter. So by VOTING THERE PEOPLE IN, they are using their representation to usurp the will of the people. Only 20% or 30% at most want the Obama agenda.
LOL, is Marcy a ‘Guardian of the Free Republic’?
Funny post devolve.
Be well to watch how words are phrased anymore, they are watching everyone.
I really don’t see the people’s wrath against governors. Maybe a few like the Arnold in Cali but most of the anger that people have is directed towards Washington.
Inside the world of Obama's secret-service bodyguards
Sounds like wack-a-doodles over there. Maybe three of them.
Heck, I will hereby call for the peaceful overthrow* of the 0bama Administration.
* By constitutional means.
Well I read some of their doctrine and there’s one that calls for the elimination of all prosecution of crimes that do not have an injured party.
That’s drugs and prostitution folks.
Not editorializing at this time, just pointing this out.
