Thank God! Holder’s Justice Department To Focus On Domestic Terrorists!


The first I heard of this was in a Reason Magazine article, here:  http://reason.com/blog/2014/06/04/feds-reanimate-the-janet-renoera-domesti

But I missed an earlier notice published by the L.A. Times: http://touch.latimes.com/#section/-1/article/p2p-80374564/

And the L.A. Times prolly got their scoop from the Wall Street Journal:  http://online.wsj.com/articles/justice-department-relaunches-domestic-terror-task-force-1401820635

Holder Withholding

Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee

From Reason Magazine’s article:

Contrary to at least one early report, the revived committee’s purview will not include incidents like last year’s Boston Marathon bombing, since the men accused of that crime appear to have been influenced by foreign groups. The focus will be on purely homegrown activities, according to a spokesman for the Justice Department.

In other words, Washington’s terror-hunting apparatus intends to focus more attention on the domestic front. What exactly that will mean in practice remains to be seen, but civil libertarians are wary. Gabriel Rottman, the American Civil Liberties Union’s legislative counsel on the First Amendment, has already condemned the committee. “Given the already lenient standards for when the government can launch an investigation,” he tells me, “the announced task force is both unnecessary and an invitation to investigate Americans because of the beliefs they hold, not because of any wrongdoing.”

From the L.A. Times article:

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. Holder said the government will continue to fight terrorists abroad.

From Wall Street Journal article:

The task force the Justice Department is reviving was originally launched in the aftermath of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. It was scheduled to meet on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, but given the terror attacks of that day it didn’t meet, and the group’s work was quickly eclipsed by the response to those attacks and the effort to defeat al Qaeda in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere.

Now, Mr. Holder said in a statement, “we also must concern ourselves with the continued danger we face from individuals within our own borders who may be motivated by a variety of other causes, from antigovernment animus to racial prejudice.”

The Justice Department Wrote The Handbook On Controlling Extremists

The Justice Department Wrote The Handbook On Controlling Extremists


Editor’s Note:

Bear in mind that DHS buys profiles on the American people from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), and that the SPLC has consistently accused Oath Keepers of being an “extremist organization”, a “radical” organization, and a “potential problem for law enforcement”.  That is what SPLC thinks of  Oath Keepers.  Fast forward that meme to Senator Harry Reid’s blatantly overt and widely published statement that the cowboys and their friends at the Bundy Ranch at Bunkerville, Nevada, are “Terrorists”. That also includes Oath Keepers, so we now know what Brother Reid thinks of Oath Keepers as well as anyone else who wishes to honor the U.S. Constitution as written.

I find it to be remarkable that the Constitution has created a Federal government which has steadily for the past 238 years worked arduously to centralize all local, County, State, and Federal power into one horrific concentration of over-funded, overly-empowered, extremely defensive, exceptionally intrusive, sometimes deadly, and always dangerous bulwark of arrogance. By the time the government which came out of the Constitution claims anyone seeking to honor and uphold and defend the Constitution which created it is a “terrorist”, we know we’re in deep doo-doo, and there is a huge FAN approaching us swiftly as we fly into the 21st Century as Americans.  Oath Keepers beware – a collision is in store, and governments always resort to deadly force when they can’t sell their BS to a wary public.

Now let’s all pause and go read this article again:

http://oathkeepers.org/oath/2014/05/30/meet-directive-3025-18-granting-obama-authority-to-use-military-force-against-civilians/

Whilst keeping our Oaths, let’s also be aware that we each must, in his/her own way, also Keep The Faith. The Fedgov ‘keeps’  driving more and more deeply into the dark forest of tyranny. We must stand in our States to have our States stand against the Federal tyranny.  Our work starts in our own homes and spreads outward to our communities, towns/Cities, and Counties. And by all means, let’s stand for the Bundy Ranch in southern Nevada.

Salute!

    Just curious, with all the crap we have been taking for 100 years or more, are we now dhimmi or soon to be. Don’t answer this one, but what will happen when American women and children are covered and beheaded in the streets of America? When does it stop? Don’t answer. As a woman I have to start thinking about this.

    The problem IS enforcement of the US Constitution. Who is constitutionally assigned those duties?

    When the founders created the US Constitution they realized that we would never be able to count on state and federal representatives or agencies to protect our lives, property, and freedom. They decided to continue with what the people here had already been using, and the one proven throughout history to have the best needs of the people themselves always put first, the Militia of the several states. Who are the Militia? All able-bodied citizens or those legally allowed to be here between the ages of 18 – 60.

    Each state’s Militia is made up of “We the People” protecting our own interests, homes, states, nation, and enforcing our governments. The Militia has as its constitutionally assigned duties to:
    - Enforce the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution,
    - Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which is constitutional laws ONLY),
    - Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
    - “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”.

    The US Constitution guarantees to each state its own “Republican form of government”. It is every state’s Militia that is the ONLY Constitutionally assigned force to “counter Invasions” and “Domestic Violence” within our nation.

    But this enforcement requires a TRAINED Militia of the several states. Since the congress has refused to do their constitutionally assigned duties and to even actually work against the American people (Read the part they have recently played in this new, “improved NDAA”), and most states are dealing with domestic enemies in the top echelons of their governments it is up to the already trained and “organized” Militia to take over those duties as is the people’s right.

    Who are the trained and organized Militia? Veterans, constitutional LE’s, etc are the trained and organized Militia of the several states. Why do you think they are on the terrorist watch list created by traitors and domestic enemies of the USA?

    US Constitution, Article I, Section. 8, Clause 11: “To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water”.

    The congress has the duty to grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal when they are needed to enforce the US Constitution, the laws, or defend the people and the nation. This is using private citizens in their own privately owned crafts to defend the USA and her people, this is using the Militia.

    Clause 15: “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel invasions.

    Clause 16: “To provide for organizing, ARMING, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress”.

    Yeah, amazingly enough all that “surplus” military equipment that went to governmental professional LE agencies are LAWFULLY supposed to have gone to the Militias of the several states.

    Modern law enforcement – both federal and state – violates the Framers’ and the peoples most firmly held conceptions of criminal justice written into the US Constitution. Professional police were unknown to the United States until close to a half-century AFTER the Constitution’s ratification. Law enforcement under our legitimate government was, and still is, a duty of every citizen.

    The duty of US citizens to enforce the law was, and still is, a duty assigned to the people by the US Constitution. Many state constitutions bind citizens into a universal obligation to perform law enforcement functions as the Militia.

    The Framers decided law enforcement was safest for the freedom of the people, and our country as the duty of mostly private citizens (a few constables and sheriffs) as the state’s militia and that is what they put into the USA Constitution. The US Constitution contains no explicit provisions for criminal law enforcement, except for the Militia, as did all state Constitutions.

    The Constitutions – federal and state – enunciated the intention that law enforcement was a universal duty that each person owed to the community as the Militia of the several states, rather than a power of the governments. Founding-era constitutions addressed law enforcement from the standpoint of individual liberties and placed explicit barriers upon the state. At the time of the Constitution’s ratification, the office of sheriff was an appointed position, and assistance were either elected or drafted from the community to serve without pay as the Militia.

    Professional police as we know them today originated in American cities about halfway through the nineteenth century, when municipal governments drafted citizens to maintain order. Toward the end of the nineteenth century, police forces took on the role of crime-fighting. The goal of maintaining public order became secondary to chasing lawbreakers. This “new” role followed the “bobbie” model developed in England around the 1830s.

    But our country had cut its ties with England to develop our own form of government with LESS governmental involvement in the affairs of the people. The “new” law enforcement was incorporating MORE government into the affairs of the people against the US Constitution as is done in England.

    The 1920s saw the rise of law enforcements new concepts developed and spread by J. Edgar Hoover. Hoover’s Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The FBI came to epitomize the police profession in its sleuth and intelligence-gathering role. This very new view of police as soldiers locked in combat against crime caught on quickly with law enforcement agencies of both the feds and the states. The FBI led local police to develop integrated repositories of fingerprint, criminal, and fraudulent check records. The FBI also took over the gathering of crime statistics (theretofore gathered by a private association). The idea of a the law enforcement as a “thin blue line,” that “serves and protects” civilized society from chaos and lawlessness was pushed to change the way individuals saw their own duty versus a professional governmental law enforcement.

    Governmental LE agencies are ONLY working under the law of THIS land when they are keeping their oath to support and defend the US Constitution before anything else.

    Notice that it was in 1933 that Joseph Stalin said: ”The United States should get rid of its militias”. And the federal government started doing just that.

    What are you going to do when they come for your gun?

    Stand and Fight or Freak from Fright?

    What are you going to do when they come for your gun?

    Will you stand like a man and Freedom Demand or shake and quiver to meet the Command?

    What are you going to do when they come for your gun?

    Are you an intelligent man that understands the God given plan or a simple man just following a Devilish Mans Plan?

    What are you going to do when they come for your gun?

    A man that depends upon another mans plan is a slave not safe or secure, living only by the grace of the other mans most subversive of plans.

    What are you going to do when they come for your gun?

    Any man can make a demand, but Freedom and Security is not a surety, every man must understand all plans and ensure his stand for all men to reject any plan to control and enslave the individual man.

    What are you going to do when they come for your gun?

    Cower if you will but step aside for the Man that knows what is right and is willing to fight, canceling all plans to lessen a man.

    What are you going to do when they come for your gun?

    No man of value shall wallow in sorrow and shall move to the front to be the first to confront a lesser man with a devilish plan.

    What are you going to do when they come for your gun?

    When you have a COMMUNIST NWO TRAITOR as president of Amerika.
    Then anyone that loves their country is a perceived enemy.
    Obama is a delusional, mentally unstable, individual that is
    INTENTIONALLY destroying America by intent and design.
    Obama is a clear and present DANGER to our National Security and World Peace.
    Impeach and Arrest the TRAITORS in Washington DC.
    ARREST the Bankers and Federal Reserve that have Bankrupted not only America
    but are bringing about the collapse of the WORLD economic system.
    WW3 will be started if these TRAITOR criminals are not stopped.
    Not only America but human civilization will be destroyed if Obama is allowed to continue.
    You see what happened to Nazi Germany when the people followed a mad man.
    If Obama continues on with his idiocy there will be NOTHING left.

    @ JOHNNY, “AND WE COULD USE THAT TO GUARD OUR BORDERS AND STAND AT READY?”

    First each STATE has the duty of guarding their borders and they can use Militia from other states when needed.

    The feds ONLY have the lawful power as far as immigration is considered to decide what it will take for those the STATES let in to become citizens.

    Constitution of the United States of America, Article I, Section 8, Clause 4: To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;

    And

    Section 9: The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress…
