This article explores the latest in the ongoing implementation of more police state policies being implemented under the rule of law. This article will expose, through a careful examination of Assistant Attorney General, John Carlin’s announced intention to criminalize free speech as it relates to criticism of the government for its unconstitutional acts.
CNN Exposes a Very Dangerous Agenda
To help combat them, the department has created a new counsel that will coordinate the investigation and prosecution of anti-government and hate groups”. (Editor’s note: It is legal to be anti-government in one’s speech and this attitude does not imply the subsequent use of violence).
From CNN, “Assistant Attorney General John Carlin, who oversees national security at the Justice Department, announced the new position — the Domestic Terrorism Counsel — following a number of violent attacks or plots against the U.S. that he said were motivated by “anti-government views, racism, bigotry and anarchy, and other despicable beliefs.”
Take note of the use of the strategy often referred to as incrementalism. Carlin vilifies groups that most Americans do not approve of (e.g. the KKK, overt practices of racism, acts of violence etc.). However, Carlin slips into his rhetoric that anyone that characterizes any person harboring any expressed anti-government views, as a domestic terrorist. This is a thinly veiled attempt to end all criticism of the government and government officials.
It is in the DNA of America to oppose governmental tyranny and that is precisely what we are witnessing in today’s Obama administration. It is our duty to protect and defend the Constitution. However, these “Anti-government” views and activities are being characterized as the actions of a domestic terrorist.
THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE CREATION OF AN “ENEMIES OF THE STATE” LIST. IT IS ANALOGOUS TO WHAT STEVE QUAYLE HAS LONG REFERRED TO AS THE “RED LIST/BLUE LIST”
From the NDAA, to the plethora of illegal and unconstitutional Executive Orders, the present (Obama) administration has made a mockery of the Constitution. However, in the words our occupied government (i.e. analogous to the French Vichy WW II Nazi collaborators), this administration wants to declare you to be a terrorist for the simple act of disagreeing with the government’s mandates. If traditional, Bible-believing Christians oppose gay marriage, they are members of a hate group cult. No matter how offensive these Christian world views may appear to some, it is the Constitutional right of these conservative groups to hold and express these beliefs. Yet, these beliefs are being criminalized and the holders of these beliefs are being set up for persecution. The Constitution is dead, long live the Constitution! The world has turned upside down.
Again, the CNN coverage of Carlin’s inflammatory comments continues, “Groups such as ISIS and al Qaeda, who are inspired by religious extremism, are designated by our federal government as terror organizations, which makes it illegal to support or assist them. But no such statute exist to prosecute white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan or anti-government extremists, forcing federal law enforcement to find more concrete charges to lock them up”.
Did the Assistant Attorney General of the United States subtly ridicule the fact that law enforcement must have “concrete charges” before locking up a criminal”? Is the number two person in charge of our legal system mocking due process and characterizing it as a handicap to proper law enforcement practices?
Please also take note of the “guilt by association strategy” being employed by Carlin. Reasonable Americans do not sanction the actions of white supremacists groups, such as the Klan. However, in the same series sentence, Carlin throws in the term anti-government extremists. Therefore are we to conclude that if American citizens oppose the wealth redistribution strategies of the Obama administration which has led to the largest income gap in the history of this country, then we are to be considered to be a domestic terrorist? If Americans oppose the unconstitutional Trans Pacific Partnership, then these Americans are to be considered to be home-grown terrorists? Please note that all Americans who oppose the communist inspired actions of this administration are not white supremacists or planning to blow up buildings. Therefore, being a supporter of the Constitution is what is being criminalized here.
Who Will Enforce the Attacks on the First Amendment?
Lisa Haven describes the newly announced the Strong Cities Network whose job it is to combat home-grown domestic terrorism. Here is Haven’s description of this program.
Americans Have Lost the Capacity to Resist
Last night, I received an email communication from broadcaster and ex-Green Beret, John Moore, which encapsulates where America is presently at with regard to possessing the capacity to resist this unfolding tyranny.
I’m in my fifth decade of professional involvement with the Criminal Justice System. Up until a few years ago, a person accused of committing a crime was just a “criminal suspect” and the crime itself was just a “crime”.
Now it can also be a “hate crime” or “an act of terrorism” as if the additional verbiage makes the crime worse, more heinous, or deserving some special treatment, or additional punishment, over and above what this crime would be worthy of otherwise. Of course, the person accused is no longer just a criminal suspect. No, he or she is now a “Suspected Domestic Terrorist”.
As a side note, through the ease and (for us older folks) near magic of Netflix, I’m incrementally watching the entire “Twilight Zone” series from the late 1950’s, early 1960’s. I watched many of them when they were originally broadcast.
If there was a 1960 Twilight Zone episode portraying American adult men and women wearing PJ’s in public, bodies covered in tattoo’s, pieces of metal piercing their faces, nearly all adults being obese, men and women wearing tee-shirts as socially acceptable outer garments, about half of all adults being semi, or completely, illiterate, about 1/4 of all adults with prescriptions for psychotropic drugs, 8% of all adults being diabetic with nearly 50% being pre-diabetic, where 73% of 18 to 25 year old’s are either too fat, too dumb, too unhealthy, or have criminal records thus being unable to qualify for any branch of the U.S. Military, homosexuals can marry each other, sexual deviants are allowed to enter the locker rooms and restrooms of the opposite sex, our precious young women being raised to believe that they should embrace, as a fact, the concept of their being able to face a full-grown man in hand-to-hand combat as part of the U.S.M.C. or U.S. Army, et cetera, the show would have been regarded as a wild fantasy from the minds of Rod Serling and the show’s writers.
Obviously, we are sadly (and quite literally) living that fantasy in the early 21st Century.
May God help us.
I could not have said it any more clear than John Moore. The majority of Americans are slowly but surely abandoning their roots, the foundation of our culture. Many Americans have been pushed into a corner where they feel compelled to deny Jesus, forsake the law of the land and acquiesce to every perversion known to mankind.
My father’s family had roots in pre-Nazi and the post-Nazi takeover of Germany. I grew up hearing the stories from my German grandmother. This is exactly how the Nazis set the stage to legitimize the persecution of the Jews, homosexuals, gypsies and government dissidents. The same is taking shape here. I have a bad feeling that these philosophies, combined with some very concerning events, are pushing America towards her final solution.
To some unaware individuals, the use of the term “final solution” will seem extreme. However, we have psychological data and subsequent experiments that demonstrates just how easily these totalitarian goals could be achieved. This will be the topic of a future story.
