Clash Daily ^ | 16 April 2014

Posted on 04/16/2014 12:47:42 PM PDT by kingattax

FBI counterterrorism agents are visiting gun shops in South Carolina to investigate “suspicious purchases” made by people who talk about “big government,” according to a new report.

Author Brandon Turbeville says he was approached by an individual who works in a Columbia, South Carolina gun shop to relate the story of how an FBI agent entered the store on Monday, showed his credentials, before proceeding to ask a series of stunning questions.

Ask if they have a warrant or are making a purchase?

No?

Please leave.

Sounds like an excellent way to handle business.

Not surprised, it’s what fascists do, anyone who thinks for one moment that LEO’s at any level will side with conservatives is on heavy meds.

Today, we look at a third threat—the “sovereign citizen” extremist movement. Sovereign citizens are anti-government extremists who believe that even though they physically reside in this country, they are separate or “sovereign” from the United States.

Like illegal immigrants, native Americans, liberals when a republican is president, etc....

Hey there Mr. Comey, I’m against big government in a major way. In fact I think most of you are leaches on society. Hear that Jimbo?

I’ve not met many gun dealers who are not eager to start a conversation about the evils of big government. They enjoy spreading common sense.

Ha perhaps they ought to look into a Rumor I heard...Goes like this.

A sitting President, Attorney General and the Head of the ATF conspire to smuggle Fully automatic Weapons into Mexico.

The fallout was two US Agents Killed and several Hundred Mexican Nationals killed with those Illegally sold weapons under the Authority of the ATF. The weapons have yet to be recovered except for a few left behind at crime scenes.

But it is just a rumor I heard...

I would say that the very fact that the Fibbies were investigating talk about “big government” would absolutely verify the fears that anyone would have about BIG GOVERNMENT.

Notice they’re not nearly as worried about Muslim terrorists as they are about their “domestic enemies”, ie, real Americans.

They always want to hunt you down with a credit card. Purchases such as freeze dried food, guns & ammo, PMs, contributions to various political organizations need to be tracked, for your safety.

Ironic - I was in a gun shop yesterday afternoon talking to the proprietor about the Nevada thing and Harry Reid’s connections. The conversation wandered to a rifle I’m contemplating ordering and what options to think about. A young feller walked in just as the guy behind the counter was asking me, “well, what do you plan to use the rifle for, exactly?” and I growled “Killin’ commies,” and I thought the young guy wuz gonna poop his britches. Too bad Charlie couldn’t keep a straight face...

It’s intimidation - Obama and his goons rule as thugs...

And if there’s any doubt, let’s do a little math:

In the last twenty years how many American deaths (murders) were caused by the following groups?

White tea party members>?

Black Gang Bangers?

Radical Muslims?

Now which group hurts the political chances of corrupt democrats the most? The answer to that question is the order the FBI investigates in... which is the opposite of the order of most murders.

In short the FBI works for thuggy democrats just like they did in the Jim Crow South... only now democrats have told them to intimidate Tea Party members rather than blacks. Same thugginess - new choice of victim.

I wonder if the FBI is aware of the irony that their actions validate the beliefs of those “paranoids” who are concerned about an intrusive, overbearing government.

“Um, the Sheriff in Nevada sided with the Bundys. Just saying there are exceptions...”

That’s not quite the truth! When the Reid’s decided that they couldn’t risk the “outing” of their scheme with the Chicoms, Sheriff Gillespie did their bidding and conveyed the message that the BLM was going to leave. He’s all tied in with the Southern Poverty Law Center and other Leftist/Marxist groups, so he’s no friend of the Bundys. Further, from a personally conveyed account by a friend who was in Bunkerville, the Las Vegas Metro Police SWAT team had been told that they had permission to shoot citizens if there was any unrest. Like most states, Nevada has it’s one big $hit hole city, Las Vegas. BTW you can check it out, Las Vegas Metro has a history of killing citizens without the least provocation. You might recall that they killed a vet at the shopping mall in Summerlin because he was “legally carrying.”

just take photos and post them. Intel is the key to everything. We have eyes everywhere and photos of faces and names need to be posted everywhere. Intel, Intel, Intel.... that's the key. They can never go anywhere without showing their faces and even if they come in from out of state it's nice to know who is willing to put a boot on our throats and who isn't.

beware of the agent provocateurs trying to entrap anyone tied to the Tea Party or 2nd amendment rights groups. Remember how Randy Weaver's troubles started.

Further proof that the problem with government employees is a total, utter lack of a sense of irony.

Wow! I guess reality is more bizarre than fiction:

Today, we look at a third threat—the “sovereign citizen” extremist movement. Sovereign citizens are anti-government extremists who believe that even though they physically reside in this country, they are separate or “sovereign” from the United States. As a result, they believe they don’t have to answer to any government authority, including courts, taxing entities, motor vehicle departments, or law enforcement.

This causes all kinds of problems—and crimes. For example, many sovereign citizens don’t pay their taxes. They hold illegal courts that issue warrants for judges and police officers. They clog up the court system with frivolous lawsuits and liens against public officials to harass them. And they use fake money orders, personal checks, and the like at government agencies, banks, and businesses.

[duh!!! like the unlimited resources of our tax-funded overlords]

That’s just the beginning. Not every action taken in the name of the sovereign citizen ideology is a crime, but the list of illegal actions committed by these groups, cells, and individuals is extensive (and puts them squarely on our radar).

I posted from the FBI page. I didn't say they were a threat, in fact I pointed out that anyone could qualify as a threat according to the FBI page.
