The “War on Terror” Turns Inward – DHS Report Warns of Right Wing Terror Threat

Screen Shot 2015-02-20 at 11.38.07 AMWhat you are about to read from CNN is just the very beginning of the intentional demonization of a growing segment of the U.S. population that rightly believes the government is run by a collective of thieving, corrupt, immoral sociopaths. This isn’t speculation either, years of content on this site serves as definitive proof that this is true. Commingling dissent, violence and “right wing” ideology will be key in the ultimate division of government critics in these United States, and a successful attempt to scare people away from questioning a clearly degraded and parasitic status quo.

The writing has been on the wall for many years, and I’ve warned about this development on many occasions (links at the end). If Martin Armstrong’s model is correct, and the U.S. economy starts to move downward in fall 2015, dissent will spread across the land like brushfire and the status quo will call dissenters terrorists (they already did this during Occupy Wall Street). My advice to everyone listening is don’t fall for it, and instead unite together in order to achieve a peaceful societal and economic paradigm shift.

Sure, there will always be Neo Nazis and genuine racist crazies out there who hate the government merely because they are small-minded and filled with hate, but they are a small number compared to those who have genuine grievances against the system which are not being redressed. Stories like the following are pure government propaganda and are guaranteed to increase exponentially in the years ahead.

From CNN:

Washington (CNN) They’re carrying out sporadic terror attacks on police, have threatened attacks on government buildings and reject government authority.

Notice how CNN commingles violence with “rejecting government authority.” This is intentional, and meant to subliminally link the two ideas in the minds of the feeble minded who still get their news from CNN. In reality, there is no such connection. Conversely, this country was founded on the idea that a people should only submit to government when it working in their best interests. The first paragraph of the American Declaration of Independence is explicit:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

Incredibly, this sentiment is now being associated with terrorism. Back to CNN.

A new intelligence assessment, circulated by the Department of Homeland Security this month and reviewed by CNN, focuses on the domestic terror threat from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists and comes as the Obama administration holds a White House conference to focus efforts to fight violent extremism.  

Some federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to — and in some cases greater than — the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.​

The Homeland Security report, produced in coordination with the FBI, counts 24 violent sovereign citizen-related attacks across the U.S. since 2010.

The government says these are extremists who believe that they can ignore laws and that their individual rights are under attack in routine daily instances such as a traffic stop or being required to obey a court order.

While groups like ISIS and al Qaeda garner the most attention, for many local cops, the danger is closer to home.

A survey last year of state and local law enforcement officers listed sovereign citizen terrorists, ahead of foreign Islamists, and domestic militia groups as the top domestic terror threat.

The Homeland Security report’s focus on right-wing terrorists is a subject that garnered political controversy for the Obama administration in the past. In 2009, a Homeland Security report on possible recruitment of military veterans by right-wing militia groups prompted an outcry from veterans groups. 

Importantly, the report emanates from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), a bloated, ineffective, pointless and dangerous agency. Vox recent wrote an excellent article on the topic. Here are a few excerpts:

This hasn’t stopped DHS from trying to develop its own security capacity. It just means that whatever DHS does is already being done elsewhere in the government. And that duplication and fragmentation has made the national-security apparatus even harder to manage.

Take the example of equipment grants to state and local law enforcement. There were already two different federal programs to help police departments get equipment: the Department of Defense’s 1033 program, which sends out surplus military gear to law enforcement (and requires they use it within a year), and the Department of Justice’s Byrne grant program. But DHS now has its own set of grants to allow police departments to purchase military and other equipment. It’s supposed to be used for counterterrorism, but (just as with the other grant programs) police often end up using the equipment for routine drug enforcement.

And as a recent White House report pointed out, having three different departments giving resources to local police has made it harder to track how those resources get used. If the Department of Justice, for example, finds out that a police department has been misusing funds or violating the constitution, it can cut off DOJ grant money — but the police department can turn around and apply for help from the Department of Defense and DHS.

Or think of “fusion centers,” regional hubs supported by DHS to share information among multiple federal agencies and between state, local and federal law enforcement. The fusion centers aren’t limited to sharing information about terrorism (they’re also supposed to monitor other types of crime), but it’s definitely a big component of their mission. The problem is that the FBI already has Joint Terrorism Task Forces to investigate terrorism, and Field Intelligence Groups to share information about it. In a 2013 study, the Government Accountability Office looked at eight cities, and found that the fusion centers in all eight cities overlapped at least partially with the FBI’s counterterrorism work — and in four of them, there was nothing the fusion centers did that the FBI wasn’t already doing. (There are also other things within DHS that overlap with fusion centers’ other purposes.)

The DHS is an agency looking for a problem. Which is why it had nothing better to do last year than raid the makers of women’s world series underwear. Recall: “War on Terror” Targets Underwear – Department of Homeland Security Raids Maker of Unlicensed World Series Panties.

We simply don’t need it, and the longer it exists, the greater a threat to liberty it will become.

  1. It always pisses me off how libertarians and other anarcho-capitalists are branded as right-wing. When in fact most conservatives both the warmongering neocons and Pat Buchanan-type paleocons openly hate libertarians and anarcho-capitalists. Not to mention most conservatives openly supported the National Security State before The Obama and will do so again when their authoritarian is back in the White House.

    However this news doesn’t surprise me one bit it was going to happen eventually. It’s not like people weren’t warned that eventually the authoritarian that one cheers for will eventually turn on you when necessary.

    • You are correct. To understand a conservative, understand that since White people are not allowed to promote their self interests or appear Racist, they have to be Racist without appearing so. The Conservatives and Tea Party are about the only party that is promoting a future where White people can survive. All other parties will lead to the death of the White race. That is the main reason but not the only reason why Conservatives dislike Libertarians. Conservatives are usually older and think that society runs better with some kind of rules. Libertarians do not agree with that.
      On a deeper level FOX News has recognized what Conservatives like and are offering services that play to the pro-White crowd. They have been very successful. in capturing the Conservative following. The owner of FOX News has Jewish interests entwined in his family by marriage. He does not want to irritate those family ties or make enemies of the powerful Jews. At times, he works secretly toward Israel’s best interests instead of America’s best interest and the Conservatives trust FOX News and use it for their guiding light not knowing where they are going. Israel has no true allies except Israel. They will turn on a dime against the USA when the USA is no longer useful for them.
      Pat Buchanan is aware of all of this. He tries to be pro-White without appearing to be Racist. He tries to be for America without appearing to be against Israel but sometimes he cannot. The Middle East wars only benefit Israel and not the US. That is why he is against them and FOX News is for them.

    • and that view makes you “Better” than them how? The National Security State was a brilliant (and disgusting) power grab by the government using fear and parnoia to justify it. We got he Patriot act voted in with support of almost all parties (including many libertarians), in an atmosphere similar to the Salem Witch Hunt. Every part took advantage of it and WE have continued to allow it to be renewed.

      I do count myself conservative (though I will NEVER align with a party), and I can tell you your description of them does not come close to me, nor does it any of the others I know in the same mindset as myself.

      IMO, this us v Them mentality we have against our fellow citizens is the main issue, and is exactly what the gov wants. If we are busy fighting amongst ourselves, we will never look at what these guys have done in my lifetime. We have restricted 2A by requiring permits and registration, we have restricted the freedom of speech with these protest zones used to get dissenters awayt from where they can be heard or to arrest them altogether. We are more and more restricted from practicing religion, to the point where in some places it is treated like smoking. The press is a laughing stock to the point where it does not really even matter of they have freedom anymore since they dont actuall report unbiased/unfiltered news on any channel. In the meantime we fight with each other and grin when the “others” get nailed for protesting outside their zones or any other crap like that.

      Rather than label and disagree with our fellow citizens, why dont we find some common ground and see if we can peacefully turn this ship around, stop, and reverse the eroding of all our freedoms before it is too late?

  2. Maladjustments Done Here

    Interesting in that, as the official storyline diverges farther and farther from the day-to-day reality that Americans experience, the legitimacy of government at all levels is compromised even further. We are fast approaching the day when everything put out by .GOV will be viewed by Americans with the same level of bitter incredulity as Pravda elicited among Soviet citizens.

    Just as an aside: While some are pushing this idiotic meme of vast right-wing militancy, Texas has two favorite custom license plates available for your private vehicle, among many other types: A Gadsden flag and the caption Don’t Tread on Me complete with coiled snake and the fave of the Molon Labe crowd of a cannon and the legend Come and Take It.

    You have to love a state that lets you advertise your total contempt for its assumed authority.

  3. “My advice to everyone listening is don’t fall for it, and instead unite together in order to achieve a peaceful societal and economic paradigm shift.”

    Disgusting. You are the only people on the planet who still have guns and ammo, and you are telling your countrymen not to use them in self defense against thier fascist overlords. Absolutely disgusting.

    You have jumped the shark, Krieger.

    • Michael Krieger

      I never said such a thing. I am in favor of self-defense; however, I have zero plans to personally go out with guns looking for someone to shoot at. So I’m not going to tell other people to do something I do not intend to do.

      This isn’t complicated, but if you think me not advocating violence is “disgusting” so be it. Doesn’t bother me.

    • Disgusting is too strong a word. I retract it. Disappointment that you think a peaceful solution is possible is a better way to expres it.

  4. Not sure why the FBI exists, either: they need to invent “terrorists” to keep themselves occupied. The Cia, FBI, TSA and DHS not only must be disbanded: they need to disappear before the populace decides they have reached their limit, and then take understandable Reprisals against those inflicting humiliation and lording it over the citizenry like occupiers.

    Fusion centers: Surrounded.Those manning them? Placed in custody and tried in a People’s court.

    The so-called official “justice system” is a laughable farce, and they will need total cleansing and reinstallation with honest and open application of Justice.

    The thing I would stress to my fellow Americans is to not let the PTB use the time-tested “Divide and Conquer” tactics, like fomenting racial or religious conflict through the use of obvious “official” shenanigans like university classes of “White Privilege” or False Flag events of “anti-semitism.”

    It is obvious, and needs to be avoided: we need to rally together, stop watching commercial television (note the new Greek government voted first thing to reinstall Public Televison funding!) and most of all: we need to entirely reject the established political parties, elect those committed to dismantling the huge federal government monstrosity, and put the funding and authority back at state and local community levels.

    Just STOP voting for the Democrats and Republicans: Just Say No! Take one day this year and next year to read about the dozens of alternative political parties, then decide which direction you’d wish for your Republic. Then VOTE THAT WAY.

    And, we need to exercise ALL of our Rights, to keep them from atrophy. Including teaching your children from a very young age how to properly handle guns for self-defense.

    it isn’t “owning” a gun that is important: it is the fact we have the Right to arm ourselves, and that you do not know when breaking into my home or trying to use official force against my Rights, whether I own a gun….or not.

    Whether you will survive or need to use restraint and respect when dealing with me or my friends and family.

  5. Your article is excellent! No arguments whatsoever. Thank you for writing it.

  6. jmo,,, but we all need to be sent to a near by F.E.M.A. Camp and “Reprogrammed” for a couple of years…..:):)

    ( Just Another Day In Paradise)

    I dont care for CNN much I enjoy ABC Propaganda much more…
