Posts Tagged ‘nationwide Tea Parties’

I am once again reminded that using the term “homeland”, outside of a historical discussion of Germany, has allowed authorities access to broad powers and it is just a creepy reminder of Gestapo tactics. 

The latest assessments from The Department of Homeland Security, DHS and sent out to local police departments in advance of Tea Party’s of April 15 outlines disturbing viewpoints that should have every American taking pause.  What sort of government do we have that calls on people with Conservative viewpoints to be right wing extremists?

The federal Homeland Security Department document entitled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Environment Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment” says “Right-wing extremists have capitalized on the election of the first African American president, and are focusing their efforts to recruit new members, mobilize existing supporters and broaden their scope and appeal through propaganda, but they have not yet turned to attack planning,” Read the entire report via https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/04/14/homeland-security-ids-tea-party-attendees-as-rightwing-threats/ 

From Northeast Intelligence Network http://homelandsecurityus.com/?p=2659 ” Listen to what I am saying,” stated the source during an interview with Doug Hagmann,  founder (NEIN).  “The Department of Homeland Security Intelligence Assessment that is receiving so much attention is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, and the true patriotic citizens of this country are on the Titanic. This is what bothers me. But is goes far beyond that assessment. There have been very significant changes made over the last few years that redirect the focus and assets of the intelligence community internally. These changes have greatly accelerated under this administration, and the threats have been redefined to include those who used to be patriots. It’s not only chilling but absolutely insulting to God-fearing Americans.”

Back up a few weeks ago and we have, “A single-page confidential directive issued by the FBI headquarters in Washington, DC…was sent to each of the 56 field offices located across the United States on or about March 23, 2009, instructing the Special Agents in Charge of those offices to verify the date, time and location of each TEA Party within their region and supply that information to FBI headquarters in Washington.” http://maggiesnotebook.blogspot.com/2009/04/fbi-leak-tea-party-spies-canada-report.html 

As in a previous post at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/11/16/defending-borders-and-privacy-laws-under-obama/ The Department of Homeland Security “claims that data gathered for law enforcement purposes will be “in compliance with privacy and civil liberties laws and policies of the United States,” the GAO found that “by broadly sharing information with non-federal users, who are not bound by the Privacy Act, personal information could be at risk of being used in ways not specified when it was originally collected.” Considering that some 70% of U.S. intelligence assets are employees of private security and defense contractors, GAO is a civil liberties disaster waiting to happen.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=BUR20081109&articleId=10864

Heading the Department of Homeland Security, DHS is Janet Napolitano the former Governor of Arizona, and a former US Attorney under Janet Reno in the Clinton Administration.  http://www.augustreview.com/obama_administration.pdf has her listed as a member of the CFR- the Council on Foreign Relations which advocates internationalism.  No doubt none of us want another WACO  or 911, ever- but releasing by releasing these documents and saying that illegal immigration is not a crime, plus that the 9/11 terrorists had entered the country from Canada (sourced at http://www.newsmax.com/insidecover/napolitano_illegals_crime/2009/04/22/205948.html ) when in reality they flew into this country on documents issued by the State Department -is a reminder of why she is not qualified to hold this appointed position.  She is supposed to be serving to protect our country, not decimate it with ignorance.  Now people are asking for her resignation.

“Singling out political opponents for working against the ruling party is precisely the tactic of every tyrannical government from Red China to Venezuela,” Texas Rep. John Carter told Politico. He organized an hour of floor speeches Wednesday night to call for Napolitano’s ouster. “The first step in the process is creating unfounded public suspicion of political opponents, followed by arresting and jailing any who continue speaking against the regime.”

It isn’t civil disobedience that motivates Republicans, Democrats, Conservatives, Libertarians or Independents to take a stand against the policies of the Obama Administration, it is the objection of where this country is headed. 

Does any of this proves that Obama is behind the “right wing radicals” memo out of Homeland Security?  Obama did appoint her.  One thing it proves is that the balance of privacy is shifting and even though Tax Day has ended, we must be diligent that the War the DHS is waging does not come at the cost of personal freedom and privacy for law abiding, decent Americans.

With all due respect, thanks anyways.  I am all for a conservative agenda but not one that captures data and then probably sell my phone number to someone else to call and pester me for money and donations on my dime.  You see in America you  have a choice in participating in simple things like texting, but it is becoming a little blurry on who interprets your choice in what you have to say and what is okay for you to believe in.  Apparently President Obama, the Department of Homeland Security, and our government is beginning to define lawful political dissent, and what is acceptable. rightwing1

Yesterday, Roger Hedgecock and the Liberty Papers posted an Office of Intelligence and Analysis report (file here) by the DHS that identifies ‘Right wing Conservatives’ as the major threat to our country’s security. 

The nine-page document was sent to police and sheriff’s departments across the United States on April 7 under the headline, “Right wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.” Just in time for the peaceful Tea Party Protests.

It, “essentially indicts anyone who is pro Second Amendment, pro-border control, anti-abortion..or most tellingly, not a fan of the current Administration write, JoshuaPundit at http://joshuapundit.blogspot.com/2009/04/obamas-dept-of-homeland-security.html

From the report “Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority or rejecting government authority entirely.  It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.

Rightwing extremists are harnessing this historical election as a recruitment tool. Many Rightwing extremists are antagonistic toward the new presidential administration and its perceived stance on a range of issues, including immigration and citizenship, the expansion of social programs to minorities, and restrictions on firearms ownership and use.” 

Would that include: questioning Obama’s own citizenship, pro-capitalism vs anti-socialism, going to church, owning a gun and generally any disgruntled Americans who go to a tea party is now a right wing extremist?  Conservatives have every right to be pissed that Obama is painting conservatives as radicals.  I guess there will be no tea served at the parties tomorrow, only kool aid.

President Barack Obama has “distanced” himself from this report, according to the Washington Times.  What?  Like neither he or Homeland Security Janet Napolitano aren’t responsible for this report?  Ummm- where’s the transparency you promised?  We are seeing right through it!   Being a conservative is not being a terrorist.

I was doing research on earthquake predictions and was curious to what underground seismography might be available in Nevada from the Operation Dominick underground nuclear explosions, and if they were still active to show data to correspond to recent tremors in California.  Here was my little shake up on government authority for the day.

tea-for-two-poster

We’ve come along way from the squeaky clean image of Doris Day’s portrayal of Nanette Carter set in the Roaring 1920’s movie, Tea for Two.

The Tea Party protests of today far more mimic the sex comedy movie, Pillow Talk back in 1959.   It was one of the first movies that portrayed the loosening of morals in middle America.  Doris Day might blush over headlines like, Lindsey Lohan distraught over lesbian break up, but we can dispute morals another day.  The Tea Party protests are about disastrous politics, capitalism vs socialism, and taxes- pure and simple. 

Eric Odom, Chairman of the nationwide Tea Party rally movement apparently asked RNC Chairman Michael Steele not to be a Speaker at a Chicago rally because it might identify the Tea Parties as “Republican.”  HT- http://libertarianrepublican.blogspot.com/2009/04/msnbc-mid-identifies-libertarian.html

Give me a break.  Outside of Washington, Chicago politics is the capital of deceit and manipulation of power. If someone like Steele has something to say, put him on the agenda.  What, you going to have Blago? Ayers?  It was after all, Rick Santelli’s Chicago Board rant on TV that started the symbolic tea party ideas.  He growled loud “enough is enough’ and ‘no more’ uncontrolled big brother government.  “We’re thinking of having a Chicago tea party in July, all you capitalists that want to show up to Lake Michigan, I’m gonna start organizing.”  

The idea that the Tea Parties should remain non-partisan and rely on grass roots efforts is a bunch of hooey.    Grassroots movements may happen on the local level with volunteers in a community giving time and money to support the local party, but it leads to helping the national party in the long run.   There are Republican, Democrat and Liberal party members who are pissed.  All Americans who pays attention to politics and pay taxes should be pissed.  With the April deadline for federal tax returns looming, the only people who likely don’t give a rats ass about a Tea Party are the growing number of Americans who pay zero federal income tax, don’t file at all or don’t give a shit about where the future of America is heading. 

When I think of grass roots, I think of ACORN and I am twice as pissed to think that it was this grass roots group that played a significant contribution to the mortgage crisis- in the first place- by finding loans for people who could never pay them back.   Local community efforts can barely succeed at registering people to vote,  let alone organizing large Tea events with relevant speakers. 

Whether a Tea Party is held today, tomorrow or months from now its my guess that the Democrats will be calling foul, Republicans will try to take the credit and the Libs will still be pleading for neutrality.  The Tea Parties may have the intention of being non partisan, but it is negligent for the Republican, Dems, and Libs to not take advantage of the platform to peacefully review what is happening to our nation.  

Bob Basso portraying Thomas Paine summed it up by asking Americans to stand up against Congress and reclaim their republic now, or maybe lose it forever.  “Have you become a nation of cowards,” warning people that if they do nothing else, “buy a gun because your going to need it.”  

“Wake up, America.  While you were playing with the toys of your consumer wealth, you lost much more than your bloated economy of living beyond your means. You lost your representative democracy. Your servants have become your masters.  Taxation without representation is tyranny,” he said.
