SPECIAL REPORT: Eco-Terror Leader Declares War On America
Craig Rosebraugh, the enigmatic environmental anarchist whose tenure as the public face of the terrorist Earth Liberation Front (ELF) was marked by millions of dollars in violent property destruction, a sizable financial gift from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and a penchant for hiding behind the Fifth Amendment, has declared war on America.

Fresh from his appearance at Cal State Fresno's "Revolutionary Environmentalism" conference, Rosebraugh has penned a manifesto calling for anti-war protesters to carry out "direct actions" against the American government, military installations, multinational corporations, financial institutions, urban centers, and broadcast television networks.

Like the ELF, Rosebraugh has no use for peaceful protests, calling them "pointless, and perhaps even counterproductive." Instead, he prefers an activist plan that, quite literally, terrorizes America into withdrawing troops from the Persian Gulf.

"An atmosphere of severe unrest," Rosebraugh wrote on Monday, "if manufactured properly, will force the U.S. government to place military resources in the streets of the United States, will threaten the economy... and ultimately create a political atmosphere unfavorable for Bush to continue on with the war."

How to manufacture this sort of atmosphere? Rosebraugh articulates the following seven-point plan (in his own words) for would-be members of his hate-America terrorist brigade:

  1. "Attack the financial centers of the country... physically shut down financial centers which regulate and assist the functioning of [the] U.S. economy."

  2. "Large scale urban rioting [so that] the U.S. government will be forced to send U.S. troops into the domestic arena thereby taking resources and political focus away from the war... Rioting should be focused on governmental agencies and corporations."

  3. "Attack the media centers of the country... Using any means necessary, shut down the national networks of NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, etc. Not just occupations but actually engage in strategies and tactics which knock the networks off the air." (emphasis added)

  4. "Spread the battle to the... very heads of government and U.S. corporations... Hit them in their personal lives, visit their homes."

  5. "Make it known publicly that this movement DOES NOT support U.S. troops... Create an atmosphere lacking of support to assist U.S. troops at home and abroad in losing their morale and will to fight."

  6. "Actively target U.S. military establishments within the United States... use any means necessary to slow down the functioning of the [U.S. military]." (emphasis added)

  7. "[S]trike hard and fast and retreat in anonymity. Select another location, strike again hard and fast and quickly retreat in anonymity... Do not get caught. DO NOT GET CAUGHT. Do not get sent to jail. Stay alert, keep active, and keep fighting."

Rosebraugh implies over and over that the anti-war movement simply hasn't gone far enough. He clearly wants to take the ELF's terror tactics -- honed during attacks on logging companies, new home builders, and the Vail ski lodge -- and direct them at the federal government itself.

Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge said yesterday that intelligence on homegrown terror groups influenced his decision to raise America to the "code orange" alert level on Monday. "[R]egional extremist organizations and ad hoc groups or disgruntled individuals may use this time period to conduct terrorist attacks against the United States," he told reporters during a Tuesday press conference.

In a poignant Washington Times book review of a Unabomber biography, Fresno State University's Bruce Thorton argued on Sunday that we may one day fall prey to "a homegrown terrorism driven by debased myths and shop-worn ideas."

"The war against terrorism," Thornton added, "has more fronts than we think."

Hmmmmm. While it's tempting to want the fellow arrested, I have to say, "have at it, Craig." The damage he does to his own cause will far outweigh any benefits.

I got a better idea sheik!

Tie the tofu-snorting turd-chewers down on a bed of wire mesh over large sharpened live bamboo stems and let the bamboo grow some sense into them!

Let the environment take care of the problem.

Just add water!LOL

Great, this guy made my day.

I hereby request that the Attorney General of the United States arrest this person and all memebers of his organization which supports this declaration of war for violating Article V, Section 3, US Constitution, which states "Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."

If the left can get a lawyer to sue the KKK, why can't the conservatives find a lawyer that can sue ELF and their financial backers out of existance for the damage they do to private property and the psychological trauma they inflict on the owners. Somebody explain?????

Unauthorised entry onto military facillities to sabotage equipment and so on is a really good way to get hurt or even killed. I sort of hope these idiots try it. It wouldn't make any difference if we were at war or on tripple red terrorist threat. Sentries are armed for a good reason. I have a nephew currently guarding at Whiteman Air Base. He has his orders and is a damn fine shot.

The rules of the game:

1. When a leftist socialist dirtball destroys, kills, maims, or otherwise causes damage to people, property freedom, etc... he is exerciseing his Freedom of Expression.

2. When a god-fearing christian prays in public its a hate crime.

Understand?

Get this article to these people, Craig Rosenbraugh is definitely a terrorist!

U.S. Department of Homeland Security

Synthesizing and Disseminating Information

The Department of Homeland Security merges under one roof the capability to anticipate, preempt and deter threats to the homeland whenever possible, and the ability to respond quickly when such threats do materialize. DHS will serve as a central hub of intelligence analysis and dissemination, working with agencies throughout the federal government such as the FBI, CIA, NSA, DEA, the Department of Defense and other key intelligence sources.

Equally important to collecting and analyzing information is the ability to act on it quickly and decisively. DHS will coordinate the federal government's lines of communication with state and local public safety agencies and the general public, including monitoring the nation's threat level and keeping the nation alert via the Homeland Security Advisory System and a system of public alerts.

DHS is also responsible for assessing the vulnerabilities of the nation's critical infrastructure, such as energy and transportation sources; information, computer and telecommunications networks; banking and finance systems; health and emergency services; and systems vital to our national security, public health and safety, economy and way of life. DHS will take the lead in evaluating these vulnerabilities and coordinating with other federal, state, local, and private entities to ensure the most effective response.

If anyone has any doubts about the funding of these groups by the Opecker Islamofacists killer/thugs, they need to read the statements by this clymer.

He is a paid Islamofocist terrorist organizer! Time to clip his wings and those who follow his terrorist actions.

The eco terrorists are the Green Jihadists of Jihad in America.

Number 1, it takes balls to do something that is NOT politically correct and suing these people is not considered politically correct by the media. Therefore don't expect it to happen because re-election is more important than saving America in the minds of our 'conservative politicians'. It's kind of like closing the borders, a subject that they refuse to discuss.

Thanks for the ping. I have been saying since the week after 9/11 to check out the funding and other stuff that ALF/ELF and PETA have been getting.

These Green Jihadists are the point terrorists of Jihad in America.

OMFrigginG! Let 'em start....just let 'em actually start this kind of war. We're armed to the teeth and will defend ourselves Vigorously and with much Enthusiasism.

Was traveling thru dwntn CV yesterday and happened to come across the daily dirty peace protest....I just about lost it. Was actually frothing at the mouth in less than 5 seconds...makes my blood boil just recalling it. I screamed, hollered and generally made an ass of myself but I couldn't help myself. I'd hate to be the poor SOB that actually decides to take the fight to us.

Absolutely. When we started Gulf Storm, we had terrible violence from the lefties in the Bay Area. I knew a young man who had to go to SF for a meeting. He took his Glock and put it into a briefcase without the clip and locked the briefcase and put it on his front seat.

He was stopped on the Bay Bridge by scumbags breaking windows of vehicles in front of him and kick the sides of the vehicles. As the scumbags started for his truck, he unlocked the briefcase, put in the clip and got out and chambered a round. The scumbags damn near killed themselves getting out of the way.

He got back into his truck and took the clip and unloaded the one in the chamber and put them back into his briefcase with the top down but not locked. He was stopped by a police officer at the end of the bridge. The cop asked what was in the briefcase. Our friend opened the top, and the cop asked if it was loaded. He said no. The cop waved him on through. That is a game, but he and the cop played it perfectly.
