My thought too.

Tea Party, GOP, Conservatives, Right Wing (not Left Wing) Christians.

Just as telling as the DHS document of a little over a year ago.

This is troubling to me. I’m taking this as the start to blanket monitoring of American activities. I’ve worked hard to take myself off of the grid, but this might accelerate my attempts.

I’m with you. This is a troubling development. You have CIA, FBI, SS, local and state police...do you need another level of intrusion that is politically inspired?

A homegrown threat is what threatens his occupation in the White House.

Even though the last three attacks were down with islamic influence, they are going to focus on “domestic terrorists” like Paul supporters, Repealers, GOPers and Conservatives..

From the guy who owns the company that broke into Obama's passport records to 'cauterize' them.

But those guys weren’t homegrown.

However, these Pakistani Muslim inspired terrorists provide an excellent and unassailable pretext to monitor this administrations true enemies domestically. Keep your eyes on the domestic terrorists and ignore the fact that the Mideast is in shambles with the O's ROE in Afghanistan, the coming Isreali_Lebonese war, the slide of Iraq back into chaos, the rise of an Iran-Turkey axis. Also, a new Korean War is likely. None of this phases Obama but concern about how to shackle and criminalize his domestic critics is an obsession.

>>>Obama to add homegrown terror to security strategy?

Are you talking about Obama having an opportunity to stop the Mosque being built at Ground Zero and choosing not to stop it?

That certainly may contribute to homegrown terror increasing BIGTIME!
