Washington (CNN) They’re carrying out sporadic terror attacks on police, have threatened attacks on government buildings and reject government authority.
A new intelligence assessment, circulated by the Department of Homeland Security earlier 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 DHS report, produced in coordination with the FBI, counts 24 violent sovereign citizen-related attacks around the U.S. since 2010…. blah blah blah
There were 24 attacks by the dangerous right-wingers in the US in the last 4 years? There were 24 violent attacks on black folks by other black folks in Camden NJ last fricken week!
Go here for the rest of the nauseating, fascistic fear-mongering, thought control and propaganda if you so choose. I myself will be cleaning guns and shopping for lengths of gas pipe.
” A Circuit Court judge in Virginia has ruled that fingerprints are not protected by the Fifth Amendment, a decision that has clear privacy implications for fingerprint-protected devices like newer iPhones and iPads.
According to Judge Steven C. Fucci, while a criminal defendant can’t be compelled to hand over a passcode to police officers for the purpose of unlocking a cellular device, law enforcement officials can compel a defendant to give up a fingerprint.
The Fifth Amendment states that “no person shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself,” which protects memorized information like passwords and passcodes, but it does not extend to fingerprints in the eyes of the law, as speculated by Wired last year. “
Jersey City veered outside of its authority when it devised gun permit applications that required “…substantially more…” information than state law allows, an appeals court has ruled.
The information sought by the city includes license plate numbers, prior employers and waivers authorizing the release of “any and all information” to police, information that is not required by state statute or by New Jersey State Police’s own application, the court ruled.
“We do not conclude in this decision that Jersey City’s inquiries were unreasonable or made in bad faith,…” reads the 21-page ruling, released today. “However, the Legislature or the Superintendent of the State Police must authorize any requirement or condition for issuance of a handgun permit that goes beyond the terms of the statute and the State Police.”
The ruling stems from a case involving Michael McGovern, who sought in 2012 to purchase two handguns. The city denied McGovern’s permit, citing three arrests in Florida and “other – Good Repute.” McGovern had declined to provide some information to the city, calling his refusal “…a matter of principle in pursuing his constitutional and statutory rights,…” according to the ruling.
McGovern said the three Florida arrests, for minor offenses between 2000 and 2002, did not result in any convictions. Continue reading →
Last week we reported that NJ lawmakers had reached a backroom deal that would allow a magazine capacity restriction bill to pass both houses of the state legislature. Last year, the legislation was blocked in the state senate, but it now seems all roads are clear for this unconstitutional bill to make it to the governor’s desk.
The bill would lower NJ’s current magazine capacity limit from 15 to 10 and it would also ban semi-auto rifles with fixed magazines that have a capacity greater than 10 rounds.
“When you meet families that lost their loved ones, it’s pretty hard to explain why you can’t do a simple thing like this to make lives a little bit easier,” said Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester).
The Assembly passed the same bill last year, but Sweeney refused to bring it up for a vote in the Senate…
” The President IS going to act…they’re executive orders, executive action, that can be taken…we haven’t decided what that is yet, but we’re compiling it all with help of the attorney general and, uhh, and all the rest of the cabinet members, as well as the legislative action we believe is required… via Modern Survival Blog.
RANT WARNING: So, as followers of this blog have figured out I don’t usually opine much, preferring to let the things I cross post speak for themselves. I fear we are at the threshold, however, of some new and nasty developments in this latest act in our ‘gun control’ kabuki theater and I can’t keep my mouth shut. Continue reading →
