You’ll Never Guess Who Homeland Security Considers A Terrorist Threat…

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

….

The entire document was leaked, however; and a passage near the very end reveals a training exercise that might explain the perceived need for such stringent secrecy. According to directives, even those directly involved in the mission were not to be allowed access to the files.

The passage in question sought to counter an attack by a group known as ‘Free Americans against Socialist Tyranny,’ which, according to the detailed scenario, is planning a cyber-attack in response to the federal government’s implementation of martial law.

Members of the fictionalized group, obviously crafted to resemble a growing number of pro-freedom movements in the U.S., “advertise anti-U.S. rhetoric focusing on the Department of Defense as well as to recruit like-minded individuals to join their ‘cause,’” the document warns.

“It is believed that there are employees within US Northern Command, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, National Guard, and Defense Information Systems…

The Growth of Homeland Security’s Domestic Intelligence Enterprise | Public Intelligence

The Department of Homeland Security’s production of domestic intelligence has increased substantially over the last few years according to a brochure of “intelligence products” published last month by Cryptome.

It provides descriptions of each type of product created by the DHS Intelligence Enterprise as well as the classification level and instructions on how DHS “customers” can obtain the products.

DHS Hides Records of Failed $1 Bil System from Congress | Judicial Watch

In an apparent effort to cover up a potential scandal, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has for months refused to provide congressional leaders with records related to a failed program that was quietly nixed after the agency blew $1 billion on it.

The faulty “life-saving” technology, known as BioWatch, was supposed to detect biological attacks. However, it’s never come close to meeting its goal of accurately detecting pathogens that cause anthrax, tularemia, smallpox, plague and other deadly diseases. Instead it is well known for false alarms and other glitches. In short, it’s turned out to be a worthless money pit for U.S. taxpayers… via Judicial Watch.

DHS To Grant Illegal Aliens “Unlawful Presence Waivers” | Judicial Watch

In its quest to implement stealth amnesty, the Obama Administration is working behind the scenes to halt the deportation of certain illegal immigrants by granting them “unlawful presence waivers.”

The new measure would apply to illegal aliens who are relatives of American citizens. Here is how it would work, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announcement posted in today’s Federal Register, the daily journal of the U.S. government; the agency will grant “unlawful presence waivers” to illegal aliens who can prove they have a relative that’s a U.S. citizen.

Homeland Security: You’re All ‘Militia Extremists’ Now | PJMedia

A recently published “lexicon” distributed to thousands of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) targets citizens concerned about their Second Amendment rights and the steady encroachment of the federal government, categorizing such as “militia extremists.”

The “lexicon,” marked Unclassified/For Official Use Only (FOUO), is dated November 10, 2011, and was sent out by email to law enforcement and homeland security agencies on November 14 by LaJuan E. Washington of the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis.

Rand Paul on TSA detainment: ‘I was barked at: ‘Do not leave the cubicle!” | The Daily Caller

“…. Let’s be clear,” [Press Secretary] Carney said. “The passenger was not detained. He was escorted out of the area by local law-enforcement.”

But Sen. Paul told TheDC that he certainly felt like he was detained. “If you’re told you can’t leave, does that count as detention?” Paul asked.“I tried to leave the cubicle to speak to one of the TSA people and I was barked at: ‘Do not leave the cubicle!’ So, that, to me sounds like I’m being asked not to leave the cubicle. It sounds a little bit like I’m being detained.”

R.I.P. Bill of Rights 1789 – 2011 | Natural News

One of the most extraordinary documents in human history — the Bill of Rights — has come to an end under President Barack Obama. Derived from sacred principles of natural law, the Bill of Rights has come to a sudden and catastrophic end with the President’s signing of the National Defense Authorization Act NDAA, a law that grants the U.S. military the “legal” right to conduct secret kidnappings of U.S. citizens, followed by indefinite detention, interrogation, torture and even murder.

Has Our Government Become Tyrannical? | Modern Survival Blog

via Has Our Government Become Tyrannical? – Modern Survival Blog – surviving uncertain times. October 24, 2011 at 12:06 pm (PT)

Has-our-government-become-tyrannical?

Thomas Jefferson, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence (1776), the third President of the United States (1801–1809), and and founder of the University of Virginia, once said the following… “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

Let’s have a quick look at ‘tyranny’.

Tyranny: arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority; oppressive or unjustly severe government on the part of any ruler.

Oppressive: difficult to bear; burdensome; exercising power arbitrarily and often unjustly; tyrannical; weighing heavily on the senses or spirit

Tyrannical government: despotic and oppressive tyrannical – characteristic of an absolute ruler or absolute rule; having absolute sovereignty; an authoritarian regime; autocratic government; despotic rulers

It could be said that unless restrained, all governments devolve to tyranny. A democracy needs informed citizens if it is to thrive, or ultimately even survive.

When Adolf Hitler was building up the Nazi movement in the 1920s, leading up to his taking power in the 1930s, he deliberately sought to activate people who did not normally pay much attention to politics. Such people were a valuable addition to his political base, since they were particularly susceptible to Hitler’s rhetoric and had far less basis for questioning his assumptions or his conclusions.

“Useful idiots” was the term supposedly coined by Lenin to describe similarly unthinking supporters of his dictatorship in the Soviet Union.

Perhaps it is easier to slip into tyrannical rule of government during hard economic times or frightening and uncertain times, when a largely uniformed populace can be more easily ‘led’ and controlled, and are more desperate and willing to accept ‘measures’ in hopes of solutions to their problems.

It is fairly plain to see (if you look) some of the liberties that have been trampled upon of late by government or government agencies.

Super-computers that are profiling you by…

Listening to your phone calls in search for ‘key words’.

Reading your emails in search of ‘key words’.

Monitoring and profiling your internet activity.

Logging the products and foods that you purchase, and where you get them.

Logging and monitoring the groups that you associate with.

Monitoring your travel movements for patterns.

You may say to yourself that some of the monitoring is purely for market research and advertising purposes, but, make no mistake about it, if the data is available, it will be gathered into gov’t databases in the name of Homeland Security. Whether you like it or not, you ARE being profiled.

Government agents that are, will, or could…

Search your body / property at airports if the agent is TSA.

Search your body / property at NFL games if the agent is Homeland Security.

Search your vehicle if you look ‘suspicious’ on an Interstate road if the agent is TSA.

On a whim, declare an American citizen an “enemy combatant”, and:

Detain without charge, in secret.

Deny legal representation.

Deny the right to question his detention.

Be shipped to a foreign country for interrogation, in secret.

Be tortured, in secret.

Be tried by a military tribunal, in secret.

NOT be granted access to the secret evidence against him.

Convicted based on that secret evidence.

On top of all that, ‘the system’ is rigged to put you oppressively in debt, and to make you a slave to that debt. Our politicians are in cohort with and beholden to the Banksters and BigCorp who have built this ‘system’. Our politicians rarely, actually, represent us, at least in the true definition of representation.

So, the question is, does the government fear the people? Or do the people fear the government? The answer will reveal whether we are already under tyrannical control….
