Domestic Terrorism Bill Targets Patriot Groups and Citizen Militias

By Joe Jarvis Via The Daily Bell

To authorize dedicated domestic terrorism offices within the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to analyze and monitor domestic terrorist activity and require the Federal Government to take steps to prevent domestic terrorism.

That’s the text of a bill introduced in Congress on February 2nd called the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2018.

The FBI defines domestic terrorism as “U.S.-based movements that espouse extremist ideologies of a political, religious, social, racial, or environmental nature.”

But what is an extremist ideology? It’s easy to see on one end of the spectrum, once violence happens. But the FBI sees the progression as “crossing the line from First Amendment protected rights to committing crimes to further their political agenda.”

It sounds like they are saying speaking out is a precursor to terrorism. Exercising rights is suspicious.

The bill makes repeated reference to “patriot” groups as well as “anti-government militias.”

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, in 2015, for the first time in 5 years, the number of hate groups in the United States rose by 14 percent. The increase included a more than twofold rise in the number of Ku Klux Klan chapters. The number of anti-government militias and “patriot” groups also grew by 14 percent in 2015.

The problem is that one government agency already targeted innocent people based on their affiliation to the word “patriot.” The IRS targeted Tea Party Patriots for scrutiny and intimidation by asking intrusive questions far out of the purview of tax collectors.

Now government policing agencies want to associate “patriots” and militias with the KKK and other racist groups. This bill throws out a large net, and innocent people are going to get caught up in it.

“Anti-government militias” and white supremacists should absolutely not be under the same label. They have entirely different motivations. The militias are defensive, seeking to protect themselves from government abuse. History has proven the need for a robust check on government military and policing power.

In fact without militia-like entities, Cliven Bundy and his family may be in prison or dead right now.

Yet Bundy was recently cleared after extensive corruption of the FBI and Bureau of Land Management was revealed in their attempts to prosecute Cliven Bundy. We know these agencies are politically motivated. We know they often have ulterior motives for targeting people.

The government pushes this bill as a response to 77 deaths by domestic extremists in the USA since September 11, 2001, and 255 deaths from right-wing extremists since 1993.

In 1993 alone the government killed 77 people in one incident during the Waco siege! Without Bundy’s “militia” they may have done the same to him and his family.

So-called “anti-government militias” seem like a better way to keep people safe than new powers for the Department of Homeland Security.

Antifa vs. White Supremacists

It shouldn’t be a problem that the bill targets white supremacists. They are after all responsible for violence, including the tragic killing spree carried out by Dyan Roof on a church congregation.

But “Trump supporter” is now synonymous with “white supremacist” to the mainstream media.How often do you hear people throw out the charge of “racism!” when something has nothing to do with race?

Antifa is a far-left group of fascists that call themselves anti-fascists. They ironically claim to be against fascism while destroying property and violently attacking anyone who disagrees with them. But all too often protesters are grouped in with these rioters.

The bill cites these two extremist caricatures. But they apply these monikers to much broader segments of the population than they actually encompass.

For example, a protest–protected free speech–may quickly be labeled an Antifa riot or a white supremacist rally because of the affiliation of 1% of the protesters.

These relatively tiny groups are being magnified by the media.

And it is difficult to get exact numbers on the movements.

But the Antifa facebook page has a worldwide following of under 282,000. With 2.2 billion active users, that is less than one-tenth of one percent of Facebook users that show support for Antifa.

As for white supremacists, according to ADL:

During the recent surge of right-wing extremist activity in the United States that began in 2009, white supremacists did not grow appreciably in numbers, as anti-government extremists did, but existing white supremacists did become more angry and agitated, with a consequent rise of serious white supremacist violence.

See what they did there?

While admitting that the white supremacist numbers haven’t grown, they associate “anti-government extremists” with racist hate groups. Given that they claim this right-wing extremism grew in 2009, they are likely referring to Tea Party groups. To them, being pro-limited government, and anti-government oppression equals “anti-government extremist.”

Government Incitement

Skeptics think the government actually created or radicalized Antifa and white supremacist groups. This allows them to associate peaceful protesters on the left and the right with actual violent extremists. By radicalizing tiny elements of groups who have good reason to protest the government, they create strawmen to argue against and use to justify bills like the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act.

They can’t outlaw peaceful protests. But they can insert violent extremists–or agent provocateurs–into every rally, and use that as an excuse to shoot tear gas and call in the riot police.

A 2014 report from Human Rights Watch found government agents are directly involved in most high profile US terror plots.

The FBI often targeted particularly vulnerable people, including those with intellectual and mental disabilities and the indigent. The government, often acting through informants, then actively developed the plot, persuading and sometimes pressuring the targets to participate, and provided the resources to carry it out…

The US has also made overly broad use of material support charges, punishing behavior that did not demonstrate an intent to support terrorism. The courts have accepted prosecutorial tactics that may violate fair trial rights, such as introducing evidence obtained by coercion, classified evidence that cannot be fairly contested, and inflammatory evidence about terrorism in which defendants played no part – and asserting government secrecy claims to limit challenges to surveillance warrants.

In one case, they charged a man with material support for providing military gear to terrorists because he had waterproof socks in his luggage.

Domestic Terrorism

A Huffington Post article draws concern about the increase in white supremacist domestic terrorism. In 2017 white supremacists murdered 18 people, while in 2016 white supremacists killed only 7.

Every one of those deaths is a tragedy. But with such small numbers, the statistics tell us nothing. Any given American has an effective 0.000006% chance of becoming the murder victim of a white supremacist.

Two victims in those statistics were the parents of the killer’s ex-girlfriend, who had convinced their daughter to break up with her racist boyfriend. Again, I am not minimizing the horror white supremacists inflict on those around them.

But it is misleading to classify that as a domestic terrorist attack. And it seems unlikely that a dedicated domestic terrorism office within the Department of Homeland security would have prevented it.

To be clear, I am not concerned about the government targeting white supremacists. The problem is labeling people white supremacists in order to monitor them. For instance, the bill uses right-wing extremist and white supremacist almost interchangeably. And then it throws in some “anti-government”.

Well, they might very well consider being against the government’s violence “anti-government.”

Comparatively, it is amazing that they are concerned about 387 people killed by domestic terrorists over the last decade (Note: this Huffington Post number is higher than government figures because it includes domestic attacks attributed to foreign movements like ISIS).

They left out the biggest domestic terrorist organization of all. Conveniently, no government organization tracks the number of people killed by the police. But the Washington Post has tracked American police killings since 2015.

In 2015-2017 American police killed a total of 2,945 people. It took only three years for police to kill more than seven times the number of people killed in all domestic terrorist attacks in the last ten years.

All Boiled Down:

The actual threat of domestic terrorism is greatly exaggerated. Federal law enforcement already engages in entrapment tactics, which would likely expand under the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act. The government’s propensity towards violence is actually a larger threat to Americans than domestic terrorism. Their targetting blurs the lines between peaceful activists/ concerned citizens and Antifa/ white supremacists.

To protect innocent people exercising free speech and freedom of expression from intrusive surveillance and targetting by dangerous government organizations, this bill should be rejected.

 Tptb really cant stand the nonviolent protesters. Thats who they fear most. The people that can and will figure shit out for themselves. Think about it. They can pay anyone they want to tell you lies. The ones that dont fall for every stupid line of BS are the only real threat they face.

Read the Bill. Their Goal is to label all violent deaths of brown race people, Muslims and Jews as Acts of Terror by “White Supremacist Patriots”, including deaths in the past. Thus target white people as terrorists. 

The Democrat Bill cites as example the June 2014 murders by convicted felon Jared Miller as a “Patriot” when facts show he was booted out of Patriot groups as being too radical.

News are Manipulated, Markets, Politics, anything involving Bankers or Lawyers, Offshore Tax Havens, Unlimited Imports to make a few people Sickly Rich,... War Policy in USA is Manipulated like Foreign Policy and 'having no exit strategy'...  We DO Look like Russia!! USSR!! Maoist China!!  DNC & Clinton Foundation are just glaring examples of what looks like a page from Communist/European History.

" But today the American public, looking more than ever like Soviet Russia, has just one rule for entertainers: Don’t rock the boat. "

out of context maybe... https://nypost.com/2018/02/10/the-woke-police-have-ruined-entertainment/

Free thinkers are a threat to them.  If you're not beating the drums of wars with them, you could be labeled...  

It's ironic that people believe being educated somehow gives them morals.  Yet those on Wall Street and politics show quite the contrary as well as having no conscience...  

Most Americans have no conscience otherwise how can they sleep with all this death and destruction continue for decades?

"no conscience" because it is being numbed out by the opioids.  Stefan Molyneux recently cited a statistic that 25% or so of middle aged women in The Empire USA, Inc., are on prescription opioids, and there is the acknowledged "Opioid Crisis."  Western minds must contend with knowing that .gov arms and funds child murderers (including genocide against the Yazidis and ME Christian sects) in order to maintain the petrodollar system (which also props up Europe), but "AT LEAST I'M NOT A RACIST!"

They use the same method to justify militarism, invasions, and occupations abroad.

By radicalizing tiny elements of groups who have good reason to protest the government, they create strawmen to argue against and use to justify bills like the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act.

By radicalizing (and arming) tiny elements of groups who have good (or even no good) reason to protest (their own) government or (actions of the US government), they create strawmen to argue against and use to justify bills like

The Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF )

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)

Just watched "Josie Wales" and there is the scene in the movie where, after the war had ended, some Union soldiers in the company of a "Senator" promise amnesty and decent treatment to a bunch of Johnny Rebs if they turn themselves in. The Union soldiers then proceed to disarm the Rebs and make them swear loyalty to the Union and then execute them with a Gatling gun. One soldier protests to "The Senator" about his promise to treat them decently and he replies they were decently treated, decently fed, and decently shot...

We are all terrorists to the US Government of Parallel Construction

 

~~~~00)>>  Spook Code Words II - Parallel Construction  <<(00~~~~

A nice innocent sounding term, isn't it. ... This Parallel Construction code phrase. ... Sounds positive sounding. .... They're building something. ... What is it they're building? ......... A  big 'Frame Up' job.

A Law Enforcement case against someone built on false evidence. Guilty or not. ..... They rarely, if ever, really care. .... Case closure and conviction rate are what the case officers care about most, so if it throws some innocent party under the legal system bus it's fine by them. .... But parallel construction is used for another reason. LE has, in all likelihood, committed extremely illegal acts in the course developing their case and it hides these dishonest and sometimes outright evil, despicable acts.

I know what you're thinking, "Come on, it can't be all that bad if it puts crooks in prison. ..Right?"

Wrong. ....... If we let the cops do illegal crap to 'alleged crooks' pretty soon (like overnight) the cops will become the crooks ...

Then you say, out loud, "Oh! Sort of like a money laundering cover-up artist banking lawyer soon becomes the FBI Director? ... Is that what you mean, Dune?"

Aaaah, yea, you could use that as an example I'd say. .. You're catching on.

Now, let's say that lawyer you are referring to, turned crook, turned FBI Director has a problem. .. A couple of honest people at the international bank he was channeling millions of USD through every night to 'cleanse' the funds, go to the authorities and report his organized crime activities.

Uh oh, we have a problem right here!. ... He IS the authorities. .. And the next thing you know these whistleblowers have a problem too. His and her homes are raided and their case documentation and computers are seized by the FBI.

Oh, no! ..... Now one of our whistle blowers was found with child porn on his hard drive and the other with DoD classified documents on hers! .... Thanks to 'parallel construction' our slippery lawyer FBI Director doesn't have so many tricky questions to answer about the billions of USD sloshing around at the bank he was overseeing and why so much of it ended up in HIS personal bank accounts.

This is all hypothetical, of course. ... Made up. ............ Just like what LE does with Parallel Construction. ..... THEY MAKE CRAP UP and then charge people with crimes using fabricated evidence. .. It covers up their own illegal wire taps, witness tampering, witness and suspect intimidation, murders, extortion, planting evidence (Drugs, docs, kiddie porn, guns, etc.) and basically evil, sometimes criminally profitable behavior.

- - - - - -

What is George chewing on today?  ......... Some places our dark government agencies apply lots of Parallel Construction to We The People little peeps, I'll bet.

Wild, .........Wiiiillld Tangents, Won't Drrrrraaaagg Me A Waaaaaaay from The Truuuuuuuth!!! .. (Yes, I know, I'm not Mick Jagger,.....but I am better looking you have to admit.)

Day 115.1 - My Response To Dr. Corsi, Remember When The Awans Weren't In The DNC?

 

Day 115.2 - Wild Tangents OR Just Drilling Down With A Working Theory

Day 115.3 - The Wild Tangent Of Solving Opiod Deaths

 

Day 115.4 - Wild Tangent Media Solved DISA, OPM And The DHS Hacks A Year Ago

 

Yep, real investigations require, legwork, study, several 'working theories' that come and go, warrants 'with cause', and hours of interviews, stake-outs and lab work.

Not just sitting at HQ dreaming up some 'Parallel Construction' and then taking a three hour lunch. .......... That's the other thing Parallel Constructions are good for. .................... Lazy assholes on the fat government payroll.

George Webb does more real investigating than any ten FBI agents I've ever seen.

Yes, yes, I am better looking than Mick Jagger. That is NOT some phony parallel construction and if you answer that question correctly on the upcoming quiz it will be worth 25 bonus points and pat on the head from the instructor. .. Rolling Stones fans get an automatic 10 bonus points just for their excellent taste in music.

Thanks for the encouraging words, old navy.

I know I’m covering old territory for a lot here on ZergHedge. .. I’m doing it in an ‘In your face’ Sunday School teacher way too which may be somewhat offensive to the more sophisticated ZH comment surfers but I’m trying to round up and turn a few strays.

You guys that can take a hint just skip to the funny parts (if any) and take it like reading the Sunday comics instead. (I know what you’re thinking, don’t quit my day job yet. …. Hey, I HAVEN’T, I can’t, Ms Creature won’t let me!)

I’m going to keep sniping at the many bad actors in DC until they zero in on my firing position.

ahem...

the Patriot Act was amended in 2015 to the Freedom Act - meaning their goal of eliminating Patriots and Patriotism was accomplished and next is the goal of eliminating Freedom.  That's what the chemtrails and cryptos and smartphone 5G IoT compliance are all about.

The small group of puppetmasters LOVE slavery and hate Freedom and Patriots.

This also trickles down to a State level , as monkey's will imitate each other.

California will even take a FED OSHA law and overwrite a more extreme version to tame smaller corporations for the benefit of larger ones.

Once said Corps catch on to the fleecing and build up a good enough defense , the sham revenues fall and they turn on uninspecting small business proceeding to violate every 4th amendment possible.

Follow the money.

"They" do this, "they" do that... they they they.... and who is "they"?

Lets go over the 5 corps that own 90% of the entertainment and news media, and can push out the ideas being written into law.

From 2014: “Of the twelve(12) senior executives of the Big Six media corporations,
nine (9) are Jews or have Jewish spouses. CBS Corporation: Sumner M.
Redstone (Ashkenazi Jew) Leslie Moonves(Ashkenazi Jew) President and
Chief Executive Officer NBC Universal: Brian L. Roberts (Ashkenazi Jew)
Chairman Stephen B. Burke(White European) Chief Executive Officer News
Corporation Rupert Murdoch (White European/Crypto-Jew) Chairman and
Chief Executive Officer Chase Carey (White European) Deputy Chairman,
President, and Chief Time Warner: Jeffrey L. Bewkes (Jewish spouse:
Peggy Brim) Chairman and Chief Gary L. Ginsberg (Ashkenazi Jew)
Executive Vice President, Corporate Viacom: Sumner M. Redstone
(Ashkenazi Jew) Executive Chairman of the Board and Founder Philippe
Dauman (Ashkenazi Jew) President and Chief Executive Officer The Walt
Disney Company: Robert A. Iger (Ashkenazi Jew) Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer Alan Braverman (Ashkenazi Jew) Senior Executive Vice
President, General Counsel, and Secretary”

So now you know who "they" are...

If you prefer to live in a country founded by Whites (examples, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Europe) because its economy, culture, science and economic achievements vastly outpace one run by Brown people (e.g. Nigeria, Brazil, Venezuela, Congo, Mexico etc.) then you are a white supremicist whether you use that descriptive label or not.  I'm certainly one, though a better term is racial realist.  If you prefer people with average IQs of 100 to those with averages of 75-85 (brown people) to be making decisions, repairing your airplanes, nuclear power plants or computers (all white technologies) then you are a realist, likely a white one with an average IQ well above 100.  Just ask yourself, would you prefer to live in Mexico or the USA?  As millions of illegal invaders from the South have demonstrated even the beaners don't want to live in a country run by beaners.  Africans leave Africa in droves for White Europe.  No problem with "invasion" from the great white north neighbor, Canada.  Yet Somalians have invaded Minnesota in droves.  Too bad the cold hasn't eliminated them as it does for other microbes like viruses or bacteria.  But one can hope. 

The Marxist left loves to distort language.  They actually believe language determines thought and that humans are a blank slate with no inherent genetic nature determined by evolution.  They are idiots.  And not even useful ones!
