Skip to comments.Just received a visit from the FBI
Posted on 07/30/2011 6:17:27 PM PDT by jongaltsr
A couple of hours ago receive a hard knock on the door. I answered the door and about 7 or 8 agents all flashing badges (claiming to be FBI and/or CIA) rushed me and pushed me against the far wall.
My dog attacked and they would have shot him had I not broken free for a second and covered him by laying him on the floor beneath me.
After things calmed down a bit and I received assurances that nothing would happen to him if I placed him in the bedroom and closed the door.
I did so and they then read me my rights and explained that my opinions expressed on Free Republic were the reason they were there. I had expressed my opinion of what I thought of the current President and the majority in congress and was therefore a potential threat to the government. After what seemed to be hours they came to the conclusion (I hope) that I was merely expressing my opinion and not a leader of a counter revolutionary army - as they saw it.
They searched my apartment for weapons and found 4 (which I have not fired in over a year or more) and they seized them for testing. My dog (Ranger) was not happy with the situation so I had to hold on to him during the search to keep him from being shot.
They also seized my computer and downloaded my entire files system. I suppose they also copied any files erased by normal erasure techniques. They returned the computer as "WAS" (as far as I can tell) but I after careful consideration the past few hours I have concluded that they are monitoring me closely.
I'm not even sure this message will make it through but what else can I do but try?
If (Big IF!) this does make it through, beware. They are watching and may make a visit to your residence and give your the same routine.
It really shook me up and I have trouble keeping my nerves steady and my thoughts straight as I write this message.
Once this gets out (IF THIS GETS OUT) I can pretty much expect their return but this time they probably won't be quite as considerate of myself and my dog who they will probably shoot on sight.
I have packed my truck with essentials but I suspect that there are those that are watching so I may not make it to one of my favorite mountain camping sites.
There I will not have any communications except when I get into town and use WIFI to make any contact.
Good luck and keep your heads down.
They have become serious about enforcing their new powers - and some of us might not make it.
I'll probably be #1 on their list.
Semper Fi and God Bless one and all.

Wait,you posted he was murdered.I posted it was never proven.Your post is wrong.DJ MacWoW .As the fireman said the fire and could have happen in many ways and I never read anything about a struggle.
Great to hear. May the healing continue!
No idea if this was true, to tell the truth I’m utterly confused.
Not going to speculate.
Nothing suspicious in his ip log.
Keep in mind he posted the story. This is a FReeper Funny. If I am reading anybody their rights............
I’ve had a long lasting leg wound, no where as bad or as long lasting as yours. They treated it with an antibiotic also good for treating the Black Death. It is just finished healing. They were thinking of using maggots to remove the dead flesh. All in all I’d prefer honey.
Ha, I just knew I wouldn’t get away with that one. How can one relate what happened without the puns?
LOL! Obama can’t be late for his birthday party on Tuesday, Admission only $35,000.
[Yup. I learned early on FR that things are not always as they seem.]
I’m too trusting I guess, but I’ve learned some lessons myself.
I remember being very involved with the case back then, but so many years have gone by and my mind is not what it used to be, so I can’t recall all the details either. I just know I lost a good FRiend.
From what the Boss has said it now sounds like the poster simply has gone off the deep end.
I wrote that same thing way earlier Nan. Just couldn’t believe such a long time Freeper would suddenly go crazy. I got some pretty funny replies on that, lol.
It’s just strange, but then, I lead such a normal life!
I use honey and cortisone on my legs. It does help but it has to be all the time.
I hope so. God knows, they entertain us.
I caught a fish with a GPS tracker in it.
I wrapped it in foil and buried it.
I didn't report it. They'll never find me.
Oops, I SAY hacked.
Here is what I do not understand. For 8 years on DU and KOS all they talked about was killing Bush. You would figure that they would have received visits from our friends in the FBI and it would have been all over the NYTimes that Bush’s Gestapo are harming Americans expressing their displeasure with the government.
Instability is as instability does.
After all of those tinfoil stories about the Debt Limit fight on FR the last few days, this thread sort of caps things off.
They would have had to go through Jim and he said he didn’t know what happened.
I don’t recall anything about a struggle either fatima. Just a strange flash fire out of nowhere.
Okay Jim. Only you can tell. Maybe somebody just set him off.
It sounds like it, most seem to agree with that.
Early on I wrote that I couldn’t believe a longtime FReeper would just go crazy like that and I was “beginning to doubt my eyes”.
Someone wrote; “and so it begins..”
LOLOL, that gave me a good laugh.
Me too, during a tornado. But I agree. Being on fire would pull me away from the keyboard.
Great! Congratulations! I’ve heard of the maggot treatment. Much prefer the honey. They also pick and scrape off some of the dead stuff and gunk that doesn’t wash out each time they clean the wound. But I guess the honey has antibiotic properties and also helps keep the wound bed relatively clean.
The DUers repulse me, they are loony toons.
[I caught a fish with a GPS tracker in it.]
Why in the world would a fish have a GPS tracker in it? Was it a special kind of fish - that’s protected or something?
You’re right. I read some of his last comments and he was getting pretty careless. Most of us are aware not to do that.
For sure. Kos, HuffPo and FR are frequently quoted in the MSM. They won't touch DU because it's so foul.
Yes, Chiefs wife said she heard him talking to another person that "was not my husband". There were accelerates used in the fire. There was talk of a man who had been hanging around his house......
Yes, DU is foul. You know that this thread is going to be talked about on other forums tomorrow. Not that it matters, but it will be a topic.
Maybe JohnGaltsr posted this thread as cover and is actually headed out from Alabama to Washington, D.C., to attend Obama’s birthday party. Maybe the FBI should have visited him!
If so Galtsy has an agenda!
>> “I dont understand why so many FReepers are dismissing this as untrue.” <<
There are lots of freepers that have heads full of sawdust.
I believe that alabama is the default choice.
Not all the threads about it are coming up in a search. However there are several that say it was arson and murder. Do you need the links fatima?
I'm sure you are giving him the benefit of the doubt that he was just joking or blowing hot air...but if you read it again..it's impossible to tell.
So yea..jokester (if that's what he is) has created his own sh*t storm. I'm not going to lose any sleep over his new "problems".
You actually believe his tripe?
Chiefs wife said she heard another man's voice. I remember one FReeper who was an arson investigator was helping her. I never read of the outcome. It's been a long time.
I didn't think so either. But it looks like there was a problem to begin with.
Yes. That was posted on a thread. I can’t find it.
He (jongaltsr), sounds like an agent provocateur to me.
New World Dictionary definition of “agent provocateur”: A person hired to join a political movement in order to incite its members to rebellion or illegal acts. And we’re too rational to fall for that game. We already know that passive resistance is far more effective than violence, because it doesn’t turn public opinion against you. That’s why our grandparents’ Civil Rights Movement was such an unstoppable juggernaut. They made their enemies look bad in front of the whole world.
Treating MRSA With Manuka Honey
This is going to be good bump!
I read that he had made threats awhile back too. I’m going to be leaving for bed before long, ping me if anything exciting turns up and I’ll see it tomorrow, lol.
Yes. Yes I do.
The fire dept. has stated conclusively that it was arson but will not elaborate to anyone.
LOL!! I will. But I’m going to bed soon too.
