U.S. revives group to fight homegrown extremists: officials
Yahoo! News ^ | 6/3/14 | Julia Edwards - Reuters

Posted on 06/03/2014 9:59:00 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is re-establishing a law enforcement group to fight those it designates as domestic terrorists, with an announcement expected on Tuesday, Department of Justice officials said.

Following hate-motivated shootings such as the one at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas City, Missouri in April, federal prosecutors have pressed the need to coordinate intelligence of such criminals on a national level, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The group will coordinate cases that involve Americans who may be spurred to violence for political or prejudicial reasons.

I suspect that this group will focus exclusively on the Tea Party and Christian conservatives.

No doubt. It’s because of all those shootings by Christian conservatives, like the one in Kansas City and those happening nightly in Chicago. I wonder why it took so long to get around to this growing threat. Oh, it’s because they’ve been heretofore busy ignoring real threats like Nidal Hassan and those Chechen boys.

And this is NOT a domestic search of foreign funded Islamic terrorists. This is a reboot of Reno’s partisan brigade to go after “anti (socialist) government types”.

“The group will coordinate cases that involve Americans who may be spurred to violence for political or prejudicial reasons....

Then Attorney General Janet Reno first established such a task force following the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, but it was dismantled after the Sept. 11, 2001 hijacked-plane attacks as the agencies turned their attention toward threats from abroad.”

The Clinton administration had the FBI engaged in a phony hunt for “racists burning down Southern black churches” while the 9-11 hijackers were overstaying their visas while they learned to fly (and hijack) airplanes.

This crap resulted in the deaths of THOUSANDS of Americans.

Much easier for the police to go after law-abiding conservatives than violent gang members. Why go after 50,000 gang members in L.A. alone when you can just wait for your target to return to his middle class home after working all day to support the Obama electoral base?

Case in point. Obama’s army went after Cliven Bundy with all kinds of hardware and people. A US citizen.
But they will not go after the MS 13 or Sinoloa gangs here in our country. I think the reason is that the gangs shoot back.

Shows where their priorities are.

This is why the IRS targeted the TEA Party.

The IRS was after the names, and yes it is a repeat of what the Clintons did.

Clinton knew about McVeigh planning a bombing months if not a year in advance and tried to make it appear as if McVeigh and the “right wing extremist” had teamed up with a foreign govt, Iraq because we were still at war with Iraq, to wage war against the US.

With the “right wing extremist” waging war against the US, Clinton would have shut down and rounded up anyone speaking out against his administration.

Clinton tipped his hand this was his objective when he had the CIA satellites turned to spy on American citizens which would be illegal unless there was an act of war.

The chain of events leading up to the attempted fertilizer car bomb in NYC in 2010 which the Zippo adm. tried to blame on the TEA Party, is almost an exact repeat of the chain of events leading up to the OKC bombing.

The common denominator in the chain of events leading up to the OKC bombing and the attempted car bomb in 2010 is Hillary Clinton.

Hillary is a psychopath and her motto is “if at first you don’t succeed, try try again”.

Maybe she thinks “third times a charm”.

Many police don’t police anymore. Their highest priority seems to be get their paychecks without any risk. Look at the mraps and other military equipment local police departments are now getting. They know who the hardened criminals are and where they are located. Instead, many police go after the low-hanging fruit or easy marks. Police should spend less time handing speeding tickets to raise revenue for the state and country and more time arresting gang members and crooked politicians. I know that there are good policemen out there, but my support for the police is lot more conditional these days.

My take, in part (you can read the rest here, since I don't want to hijack the thread, as I address other, related issues as well):

Exactly what is the the goal of this "task force" the rat-bastard traitor and his lapdogs at the LA Times are talking about? It is really to prevent Doogie the Terrorist in Boston (never mind Holder let the little teenage bomber into the US to start with), or Fort Hood, or 9/11? Is this about preventing 'terrorists' like the children of Waco against whom Janet Reno (mentioned in the article) sent the FBI and ATF, to burn them to death under the false pretense of 'weapons charges'?

No, dear reader, it is not.

This "task force" Holder is blathering about will do nothing to prevent terrorist attacks. If they really wanted to do that, they would close the borders, and question Muslims at airports, instead of driving illegal aliens to bus stations, and feeling up grandma at check-in. But they won't do that. Holder thinks "it is critical that we return our focus to potential extremists here at home" because he doesn't want the government going after his Muslim and illegal alien buddies. No, that would be raaaaaaacist.

That task force is targeted "here at home," all right. The LA Times, in its role as propaganda organ for the state, gives us the key clue, when they intimate that the "task force" was originally about "right-wing zealots."

In truth, Holder's task force is targeting us, the armed citizens who stand for the Constitution, who oppose government tyranny. Because we represent a unique "threat" to the regime.

If Holder and the rest of the regime mean to force their tyrannical, unconstitutional will on We the People, then yep, you betcha we represent a "threat" to the regime. By God's justice, we ought to! Indeed, our very existence as an armed citizenry represents a "threat" to them; witness the foaming-at-the-mouth gibbering over the 2nd Amendment by the statists, including ol' Gunwalker Eric Holder himself. The Founding Fathers knew we represent a "threat", too, and agreed that such a "threat" was a good thing for the "security of a free state".

This is about the next step. Holder, the rest of the regime, and these media puffs all know that their efforts to disarm the whole of the American people except their enforcers have utterly FAILED. In fact, there are more guns & ammo in the hands of Americans now than EVER BEFORE. Holder and the other tyrants know they are going to have to use violence to disarm us, and this "homegrown terrorists" bilge is just the pretext they need! The LA Times is subtly doing what the statist media has been doing for some time now: goading the government to do something about us, their problem children, and providing them cover to do the dirty deeds.

I think the reason is they want US citizens to voluntarily give up freedoms under the guise of protecting them from those gangs. You know, like the Patriot Act and such.

If we had an active House Internal Security Committee we would have had this information a long time ago.

So NOW the FBI/DOJ is creating a unit that used to exist among police intelligence units (most of which the ACLU and Dems and Communist allies got abolished, esp. in Chicago and LA).

How do I know this? I used to work with several PD CIDs and did undercover work myself (communists, nazis/KKK, wackos).

The Holder regime used the Southern Poverty Law Center to do their dirty work instead of setting up a professional DOJ unit to monitor extremists (though Holder has significantly changed the meaning of “extremists” to old, white guys, Tea Party kids/moms, First Amendment fans, 2nd AMendment fans, 4th & 5th Amendment fans, and anyone who calls themselves a “patriot”).

I spent over 40 years exposing reds, black extremists, PLO supporters, etc. only to find that some of them were in the White House, Congress, the liberal media, and academia.

Why was I not surprised? The puppeteers who directed Obama’s career began in Moscow and ended up in Chicago. Some of them are still there. Others joined them.

Read “The Enemies Within”, Trevor Loudon, 2011, www.pacificfreedomfoundation.org for details and his followup book “The Enemies Within: Marxists, Socialists and Progressives in the US Congress”, 2013.

Private citizens and organizations have done more to expose our nation’s enemies than has Congress and the FBI (which has been crippled by Political Correctness). It is not the FBI I worked with and its leadership has sucked for a long time. You can be a career professional and still not understand what you are supposed to be doing.

They know who the hardened criminals are and where they are located.

Key statistic for your town and county:

The Number of Outstanding Warrants
for perpetrators of violent crimes

This is where the cops are falling down on the job. In my not particularly violent county, the number of those violent criminals who have outstanding warrants is in the hundreds. These are for the most part repeat offenders living in or near known locations. The cops don't like rounding them up because they are .... well ... like really violent. You also might want to check how many of those with outstanding warrants are actually related to small-town cops and deputies.

Eye-opener.

Yeah isn't that a hoot. The taxpayers get to fund the Obama army that will come after them.

The reason that is so ironic is that this president is the most subersive force the country has ever seen in office. Progressives ran for offices, not to serve, but to undermine all the goodness that America stands for.

Letter to Congress

Within forty eight hours of releasing five jihadists from Guantanamo Bay without notifying Congress, as President’s are required to do by law, it was reported by Reuters that Barack Obama’s DOJ announced the resuscitation of the Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee.

The DTEC is focused on homegrown terrorism but is lacking, if the article is accurate,in specific parameters.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/06/03/us-usa-security-homegrown-idUSKBN0EE1R420140603

That a department headed up by Eric Holder, who Congress holds in contempt for refusing to turn over documents related to Fast and Furious, can claim a legitimate standing in determining who can and cannot be targeted, is both mind boggling and alarming.

Mr. Holder’s past refusal to support a Civil Rights Commission investigation regarding voter intimidation in Philadelphia is further cause for alarm.

Mr. Holder testified the intimidation by New Black Panther members outside a voting location in Philadelphia did not match the intimidation his people were subject to in the Sixties, therefore it did not warrant DOJ action.

I was under the impression, having lived through the tumultuous Sixties, that the political fight black Americans took on back then was for the ultimate benefit of all Americans and in the end improved our Nation.

That Mr. Holder, Attorney General of the United States, does not hold that same conviction is cause for further alarm and yet he is the guiding force to determine who is and who is not a domestic terrorist?

A few years ago the Department of Homeland Security announced that pro-lifers, Tea Party members and returning veterans were on a terrorist watch list. In other words, Americans who hold traditional values were considered possible terrorists. Is this renewed effort targeting the same people?

Remember, I lived through the Sixties. I still can recall the news stories of banks being blown up and police officers being murdered by real terrorists.

I still remember terrorists named Bill Ayres and Bernardine Dohrne, the Students for Democratic Action and the Weather Underground bombing the Pentagon. They were not people with Conservative views. They were/are leftists and leftist organizations.

It is leftists and leftist organizations that were responsible for murder and mayhem back then and they just didn’t go away.

They now obviously influence government policy and are positioned to wreak even greater mayhem than they did fifty years ago. How much depends on Congressional action.

Are they now ready to use the forces of what is beginning to look like a rogue government against Conservative Americans? Who would be next?

You might consider the term rogue government strong and threatening language; if you do, read the Declaration of Independence. You will find the similarities in the “Long Train of Abuses and Usurpations” listed within and the actions, past and present, of the Obama Executive branch quite striking.

I urge you to take action to rein in this dangerous behavior being promoted by the White House.

I urge you to join in any effort to hold all in the Executive Branch found to be involved in any abuse of power accountable for their actions.
