Holder announces task force on 'homegrown' terrorists
LA Times ^ | 6/2/2014 | Timothy M. Phelps

Posted on 06/04/2014 11:40:47 AM PDT by mojito

Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder, Jr. on Monday announced the creation of a task force within the Justice Department to combat an “escalating danger” from “homegrown” terrorists within the United States..

The Justice Department, in a news release accompanying Holder’s weekly video address, cited a Congressional Research Service report last year that said domestic terrorists were responsible for more than two dozen incidents in the U.S. since 9/11.

[....]

The task force will chiefly comprise leaders from the FBI, the Justice Department’s National Security Division and U.S. Attorneys. Called the Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee, it is a recreation of a task force formed by former Atty. Gen. Janet Reno after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. The task force fell into disuse after 9/11.

Though the original task force, which was little known, focused mainly on right-wing zealots, Holder’s version is aimed at U.S. citizens or visitors radicalized via the Internet.

Anyone surprised that the feral gov’t under fascist control would not target actual enemies of America,
but would target its own citizens that would limit the power of the government?

Except that Hassan, an admitted Islamic terrorist, is not a “homegrown terrorist.” What a bunch of a-holes.

Any mention of the Somalis who have been leaving Minneapolis to join the Shaheed al Shinola?

My spelling may be a little off there.

In Holder’s view that’s about 200 million Americans.

Words to the wise, people. Staying below the radar is no longer an option.

This is an open and deliberate declaration of war on Americans. They are broadcasting full notice of their intentions.

Obama and his butt-boy Holder won’t even call the Taliban “terrorists”, see thread below: they’re “extremists”, and they will negotiate with them.
But they consider Americans who don’t obey to be terrorists. So they think less of Americans than they do the people who kill Americans.

These guys are spoiling for a fight, and they are trying to create the atmosphere that will allow them to go after what will likely be mostly law-abiding citizens that don't hold their Marxist views. They knew this prisoner swap would not go over well, given that they gave up some of the worst of the worst at Guantonomo in exchange for a deserter. Nothing they do is accidental or a miscue.

Obama, Holder, and the all the Nazi wannabes of the American left need to be shut down by everyone who doesn’t want to repeat the atrocities people like them have committed in the past. The fifty states and free people need to take back their power from these goons, and stop cooperating with them.

What is needed, and doesn’t seem to be forming, is a massive movement of millions of patriots to take to the streets and Washington, DC to demand that the Regime stand down. Isolated incidents of resistance are just what they want. They can pick off activists and make brutal examples of what happens to resisters to make the broader population submit.

You're right.

Nothing Obama and his crew does is because of incompetence, ignorance, or is without intention. Everything is done to push America into some form of Marxist, collectivist, statist governance model and hopefully (in their minds) cause Americans to take the first step in rebellion so they think they would have cover to clamp down hard on individual liberties.

No. He can only be made to disappear or killed by tyrants and those beholden to tyrants as history teaches.

We know how far tyrants are willing to go to crush any dissent or to impose it's will.

What remains unknown at this time is how far fearless men are willing to go, and how much they are willing to risk in order to oppose them.

Obviously Major Hassan's "workplace violence" is not included in this number.

Everything makes sense (to the hero of benghazi) if you recall he said there was no war on terrorism only Al Queda (which seems to be going away, the war that is).

So now, the Taliban and others are not terrorists, just US citizens who want them out of office.

They kind of slipped that in under the radar, didn’t they? Not that it’s a big change in policy. Perhaps they are planning something to draw the heat off the litany of scandals? Treasonous TEA Partiers? Are the Koch brothers arming a militia?

More like the Koch Brothers. Get Whitey Holder and the fraud Soetoro are the two biggest racists in the US. They couldn’t even track two Chechen terrorists. One of the five released from GITMO will bring Get Whitey down to size.
