Threatened Domestic Attack on Service Members and Families by Islamic State a Direct Concern for Oath Keepers

Threatened Domestic Attack on Service Members and Families by Islamic State a Direct Concern for Oath Keepers
Coming soon, to a neighborhood near you?

Despite an alert followed by an “all clear,” threats to service members and their families on U.S. soil by Islamist terrorists remain real, at least according to those making them.

I first became aware of a “For Official Use Only” FBI alert concerning the reported threats to families in Colorado and Wyoming from a report by Public Intelligence.  While confident in that organization’s reliability for vetting what they present, I nonetheless contacted the FBI’s Denver Division for corroboration, which they declined to provide.

Regardless, media outlets soon confirmed the alert was genuine. Which made what happened next curious, to say the least.

“After issuing two alerts about Middle Eastern men approaching military families in Colorado and Wyoming and making suspicious statements, like, your husband is a U.S. interrogator; the FBI has decided their warnings contained no credible threats to military personnel or their families,” Colorado Peak Politics reported.

“The FBI continues to coordinate with its military and law enforcement partners to ensure the safety of our communities,” the follow-up media statement read. “The FBI asks the community to remain vigilant and report signs of suspicious activity to law enforcement.”

With the alert concerns and subsequent denial as backdrop, the latest development makes it fair to wonder if the “all clear” has been premature, or if information vital to the safety of military personnel is being withheld. That’s because per a new report on The Blaze, a pro-Islamic State hacking group has obtained information on members of the military, and is threatening to go after them where they live:

“the brothers don’t need to attack them in military bases or secured buildings. they can now turn up in their houses. in their homes. this is war, what did you expect? u think u can bomb the islamic state and we don’t do nothing back? soon, very soon you will see.”

Obviously, the credibility of such threats, including the capability of those making them to carry them out, and the reality that disinformation is also a weapon used to force targets to expend energy and resources, are factors that need to be considered. Likewise, we need to consider that the FBI alert could have been discounted to cover for security holes allowing personal information of service members to be accessed.

In the absence of validated intelligence, it will pay to keep eyes and ears open, to discuss potentials with those in the know,  to share information that has been vetted for credibility, and to do what Oath Keepers do: Be on guard.

  1. The difference between the work place and home is….we carry, we are armed; we are not like the helpless fools they pick on in other parts of the world. It’ll be more than the man they attack; they are attacking the patriotism of a sleeping giant who as history has shown does not cave in nor run hide in caves nor wear a mask of a coward.

    1. . Our government needs to held in to account by WE THE PEOPLE . At all levels. The bill of rights is just that a bill of rights .These are not up to the GOVERNMENT to bestow on you .YOU HAVE THEM !! The second is the guard to all of them…. Remember in the Constitution it says Guard against foreign AND domestic enemy’s . I took a oath the the Constitution not a politician . So did most government and all armed forces members. At some point the citizens could /and will come to a tipping point. These citizens are not a color or a religion they are a frame of mind , We know them as American Patriots and there are more us than ALL of them. AND we are getting pissed off now.

  2. It really sucks that our military is expected to fight and die for our rights, and yet their 2nd Amendment rights are denied to them at the cost of the their lives. I just started a Care2 petition to help protect our military personnel here at home. If enough people sign my petition, we can make a difference. Right now I’ve got 12 signatures — will you help me collect more by adding your name, and then use the link below to share it on Facebook?

    Here’s a link to the petition: http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/AQFTW/zoyY/B.0MP

    If there’s anyone you know who might be able to help me spread the word, please let me know. Thanks so much — I really appreciate your help!

    1. Think of WHO you are petitioning.

      They are the very ones who are working against the US Constitution, using usurped powers and force to implement the unlawful measures they have taken. Those that stood for the US Constitution, that brought those criminal actions to light – government, military, etc are imprisoned at the least. The rest are involved with what is going on by their very inaction to UPHOLD the Oath and the duties delegated.

      You want to really work towards lawfully RESTORING our legitimate government in a constitutional manner, go join your state’s Militia, go train. READ the US Constitution and your state Constitution so that you will understand what the Militia must do, that it is not only backed by the US Constitution, it is REQUIRED by it.

      Until we remove the people who are working from within our government to destroy our legitimate government, our nation, the American people, and RESTORE our Constitutional Republic as it is in writing, petitions, recalls, elections will not work as required.

      Those people who SERVE WITHIN our government are not “THE” government of the USA/America. They are put there to carry out the duties that are in writing (written contract), and made stronger lawfully and legally as it is backed by an Oath. But until we REMOVE all judges and prosecute them, remove all who serve within the general (federal – and yes EVERY single position), remove all who serve within the state governments and prosecute all, or (people’s) Grand Jury Investigate them we will not know for sure who stood for the US Constitution, our legitimate government except for those imprisoned for doing so.

      What does that mean besides a lot of job openings? That nothing they have done since at the very least since Bush 1 (Nazi family -research them) is lawful and binding on the American people.

      The Militia is directly under the US Constitution and both then general and state governments have specific duties put into writing to do for them; are REQUIRED to use them, and have no lawful jurisdiction over them EXCEPT when they are called into service to do the Constitutionally – US & state – required duties. It is the people’s tool, and it is under NO branch of either except to list the duties they may be used for, and the duties REQUIRED by those who serve within our governments TO the Militia.

      The Militia is NOT subordinate to the Military as the Military in ALL Constitutions is subordinate to the civil, and the Militia – although to required to be trained as the military is trained, is NOT a military unit. The Militia is a civilian unit directly responsible for the enforcement of the Constitutions and the laws that are in Pursuance of the US Constitution known as the “laws of the land”.

      The militia employed in the service of the United States and or the states, shall receive the same pay and allowances, as the troops of the United States.

      Constitution of the United States of America, Second Amendment: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

      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”.

      This is using private citizens in their own privately owned crafts to defend the USA and her people, this is using the Militia. It is basically referencing the Militia and its use.

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

      The militia of each state is entrusted with the defense of the USA and her people, not just with the defense of their state; and they are to be armed with weapons that can repel any invasions bearing modern weapons of war. So the defense of each state’s border from invasion is the constitutional duty of the Militia – can you now think of any need we currently have for this use of the Militia today?

      Congress is required to provide those military grade weapons for the militias in the next clause; not to give/sell/trade/etc foreign entities, foreign nations, foreign terrorists/rebels, nor are they constitutionally allowed to give them to governmental professional law enforcement agencies as they are policing agencies, unlike the Militia who are to also DEFEND OUR NATION from any type of invasion, along with their other duties, not just the county, city, state.

      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”.

      Section 2: “The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States;…”

      (When called into the service of the USA no one else can give orders to the Militia except the US President. Remember, when a thing is listed within the US Constitution its opposite is forbidden to be performed.)

      Section 4: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, AND SHALL PROTECT EACH OF THEM FROM INVASION; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.”

      But notice that the ONLY body that is REQUIRED for, and lawfully allowed to “repel invasions” is the Militia, and it IS needed to be formed IMMEDIATELY so that the president can do his duty LAWFULLY, and use them for that problem.

      Thomas Jefferson, 1st inaugural, explained that: “a well-disciplined militia” is “our best reliance in peace and for the first moments of war, till regulars may relieve them” and ALSO A GUARANTEE OF “THE SUPREMACY OF THE CIVIL OVER THE MILITARY AUTHORITY; [and] economy in the public expense.”

      All who serve within the Militia is required to be bound by Oath because they also serve when needed the general and state governments.

      Petitions do not work, so move on to create, and join, train for the Militia which IS REQUIRED by the US Constitution and NECESSARY for our nation to restore itself and its freedom.

      1. I know full well who I am petitioning, but even the cretins in DC can be swayed by public opinion. That is why I have asked my Congressman and Stewart to help with this so that not only will Obama receive it, but so will whoever gets elected after him if it takes that long to get it done. I am not fond of the illegal alien Muslim in the White House, but if Stewart and Tom will do this then I am certain a lot of other’s (maybe all of Congress) will likely see it too. In the political arena, every signature on a petition represents five others who feel the same way even if they might be too timid to sign it, and yet they will not be too timid to vote accordingly. And so, petitions do work.

        As to the other bit about getting in a militia and training, I was an Infantry Scout and served with the 1st Cavalry Division and 12th Special Forces Group in that capacity, I am the Training Officer for my chapter of Oath Keepers, and have been actively involved in training teams in many of the small towns in this area. And, I am helping an Oath Keeper get elected to the New York State Senate, and passing out our CPT brochures and push cards in other towns all over the area. Brochures, push cards and petitions are all good psyops tools that give people hope and acquaint them with who and what we are, and also address concerns in the minds of people who often feel very much alone until we come along. Further, getting our people elected to local, county, state and national governing bodies helps too. So, before you continue on the path of error I recommend that you not only read but study “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu, and then take on a muti-faceted approach to dealing with the issues at hand.

        If or when it comes time for militias to do something then you will also need the power of public opinon and world opinion on your side, and that means that you must have tried every peaceful solution possible first. If you don’t do this then you will either die in the first battle or bleed out and/or starve after it as the public that will rightly fear you for not having done these other things first will not support you. That is reality.

        1. One must first understand how we got in this mess before we can correct it. Each and every living man or woman born on American soil has more civil authority than the entire “federal” corporation. This is NOT easy to understand but it is very powerful and has been won in court once and for all in Alaska by Judge Anna von Reitz.

          The title is You know something is wrong when…

          You will be amazed at how much we have missed or has been deliberately hidden from our eyes, even from those who seem to have a handle on the fraud.
          Petitions are NOT going to get it. Knowledge and backbone are required, and if we don’t do it with the pen and our courage, we will surely be doing it with guns, because these criminals will NOT leave us alone.

    2. Dr. Alford, I totally concur and have shared the link you provided with friends, fellow veterans and on Facebook as well. NO adversary, foreign or domestic, shall attack an active veteran, past veteran or civilian on American soil. This will not be tolerated under any circumstances. “We” Americans recited an Oath to protect and defend our Sovereignty and Constitution…..it is in effect and not debatable.

    3. I would hope that all Oath Keepers will sign. So honorable to honor those who serve and protect us all. Thanks, Dr. for initiating this. Glad someone came up with it. Righteous act, indeed.

    4. I am with you all the way-I am an oath keeper and always will be
      Former federal law enforcement
      RES IPSA LOQUITUR
      THE THING SPEAKS FOR ITSELF AND SO DO WE

  3. In the end, it will take citizen action to deal with terrorists like ISIS . Being an American citizen, former military, and proud Oath keeper, i will do what i can in this fight for survival.

  4. Terrorism involves demoralizing a class and placing them in constant fear.
    The best choice is our service members and their families, since they have been openly engaged in conflict with the Terrorist organizations. I have felt this coming on for quite some time now.
    All past and present Military members should be allowed to conceal carry, just like the retired LEO’s.

  5. I’m surprised to see Oath Keepers’ leadership continuing to sound as though it takes the War on Terra at face value. Does the leadership think that the members of Oath Keepers, or the general public, can’t handle the truth? Or that the media will score more points against us if we acknowledge what we know to be true?

    The “War on Terror” is a fraud. Many, if not most, mass shootings and terrorist attacks have been false flag attacks, even when there have been patsies who took actions in furtherance of the conspiracy.

    Although many millions of Muslims now have good cause to be angry at the US government — with five illegal wars and two illegal occupations taken against them and their compatriots, led by the US — most Muslims do not hate Americans. Most of the truly dangerous people are agents, witting or otherwise, of the traitors who are based in Washington DC. The sooner everyone here comes to terms with that, the better. It won’t change much about what the boots on the ground need to do, but at least it would be better if the leadership would stop perpetuating the propaganda that has so many Americans completely cowed and misled. They at least need to know whom to support if there is ever an opening for, shall we say, major changes.

    1. I completely agree with you and it was the first thing I thought of when I read the article. Since our government has shown itself to be completely untrustworthy, I tend to look at them first to place blame. I believe I’m right in stating that false flags have been used for centuries and there’s no reason to think they are not still being used.
      It’s always best to consider other possible scenarios when making a conclusion.

  6. Did I read this right? Middle eastern men approached military families and the FBI says there is no credible threat…?????
    Is that what I just read…????
    If that’s the case, I would say that there is something very, very wrong here and it would seem to me that these families of our servicemen are in fact in grave danger.
    Are there a group of oathkeepers in those area’s who can step up and protect these fine American families…???? It looks to me that the oathkeepers are part of a very few groups who know what the law is and are willing to take on such tasks. Just take a look at Ferguson. These are the finest in the nation.
    God bless Oathkeepers and all those who answer the call to liberty and freedom.
    DAMN PROUD OF YOU ALL…!!!!

  7. What happens when the President of the United States is the enemy of the Republic for which we Constitutionalists swear our oath to? What do we do if the President orders us to follow through with orders that goes against the Constitution to shoot law abiding citizens with guns in a crisis that this government had clearly made? What do we do if the President of the United States orders us to stand down & disarm to be arrested for crimes he & his illegal army Jade Helm has made up for us to be renditioned to another country for torture? What do we do? Fight or give up. Fight may be seen as if WE are the domestic terrorists we swore our oath to defend this country against, by a President who is a traitor to the true Constitutional United States. What do we do?

    1. It’s terrible to think the US Govt is invading Texas. Texas is a free state, and has to stand up to the “union army” once and for all. If the governer would order the Texas Ranger and Texas National Guard to repel this invasion, that would keep us free from big government dictaters!

    2. “What do we do if the President orders us to follow through with orders that goes against the Constitution to shoot law abiding citizens with guns in a crisis that this government had clearly made?”

      ANS: Stay true to your convictions and your oath. Respectfully decline. Then arrest him. Take him into to custody. Hold court. If found guilty of treason, hang him. Should take about five minutes.

  8. Whether or not the alert was premature, the idea itself should be a wake up call to military family members. Be more ‘situationally aware’, be vigilant as if this, or something like this, could happen and take notes and photos and share that info. Isn’t that the benefit of the internet?

    Petitioning the government is good but I wouldn’t want my family counting on it.
