NO one needs to convince this blog that white supremacist groups are a danger. And knowing full well that eliminating Jews is as important to them as killing Blacks, well, this registers very high on the self preservation meter.
That being said, let’s place the cards on the table: The tangible priority that DHS assigns to the above domestic threat is barely negligible. And even though ‘mama Janet’ is no longer a factor it will hardly make a dent, at least under Obama Inc’s radical oversight. Not only that, but US prisons are the largest conduits for Aryan front groups, as well as Islamist ones. Nevertheless, many of them re-enter society more dangerous than prior to their incarceration. Imagine that. Rehabilitation at its finest. But never mind…the fact of the matter is that zippo and zilch is done to suppress said recruitment. And while the above has been the case for years, why isn’t DHS reining them in? Exactly.
But Obama Inc. does have these militias in their sights, yet not for targeting. In fact, they are the useful straw men to achieve other means, and certainly not in America’s interests. So while we are witnessing the anti-American activities of Obama and surrogates, a regime gone wild, they would have Americans believe that they don’t have targets on patriots’ backs, even after they placed bulls eyes on them via IRSgate. Ho hum….
Included among the suspected terrorists were Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.
At the time it was revealed, the program called “Operation Vigilant Eagle” caused some controversy but was quickly forgotten and buried by the media.
For the DHS, Vigilant Eagle was the expression of the misdirected paranoia that exists at the agency’s highest levels, which since President Obama stepped into office have issued multiple reports about a supposed wave of terrorism by American conservatives of various stripes, from Tea Party members to off-duty cops.
At the time, Janet Napolitano, Homeland Security secretary and chief conspiracy theorist, told NBC that, “This is an assessment of things just to be wary of, not to infringe on constitutional rights, certainly not to malign our veterans.”
Tell it to Brandon Raub.
Last year, Raub was arrested by a small mob of FBI and Secret Service agents and held for a week at a psychiatric facility, all because the Marine vet likes to gripe in blogs and on Facebook about the federal government. (Who doesn’t?)
According to WorldNet Daily, one sample of his posts reads, “The United States was meant to lead the charge against injustice, but through our example not our force. People do not respond to having liberty and freedom forced on them”
Ah, yes. You can feel the imminent danger.
He has filed a lawsuit against the federal government. Wonder if another visit to the psych ward is in order?
He was only released last time after a judge stepped in and admonished the agencies holding him that the case was “devoid of any factual allegations.”
Raub’s attorneys claim that the arrest and forcible commitment were an attempt by FBI and other officials with Operation Vigilant Eagle to silence Raub for his criticism of the government.
Documents about Operation Vigilant Eagle show the project idea was hatched in December 2008 as a joint operation of the FBI and Defense Department, as the Bush Administration was packing up and the Obama Administration was moving in, according to the Wall Street Journal.
By February 2009, just weeks after President Obama’s DHS opened shop, a project memo stated that the purpose of Vigilant Eagle was to “share information regarding Iraqi and Afghanistan war veterans whose involvement in white supremacy and/or militia sovereign citizen extremist groups poses a domestic terrorism threat.”
Supposedly, this assessment of a suddenly “growing threat” was based on confidential information, undercover sources and “publicly available” information — I’m betting the Huffington Post or Mother Jones, but the memo doesn’t specify.
Raub’s attorneys say they’ve been contacted by numerous other military veterans recounting similar stories.
After his arrest on August 16, Raub was ordered by a “Special Justice” to be held for 30 days for evaluation and “treatment.” The arresting officials specifically stated his Facebook postings were the reason for his arrest.
Fortunately, Circuit Court Judge Allan Sharrett heard about the case and intervened, throwing out the allegations by the feds.
If this is how we treat our veterans, our country has crossed the line and joined other countries like China and the Soviet Union that use tactical psychological “treatment” and detention to silence the opposition.
Thanks to the Obama Administration, the freedoms our brave veterans fought to protect are slipping away daily. http://godfatherpolitics.com/11001/operation-vigilant-eagle-spies-on-veterans-who-speak-too-freely/#ixzz2Ug5jxqMG
Yet from the get go this blog sent out a clarion call: Calling all vets, Obama Inc. is gunning for you! Talk about pay back for serving ones country.
But the hunt is not exactly all inclusive, as Muslim vets are given a pass. Simply put, the Pentagon has been taken over by anti-American leadership. Here’s another nail in its co-option, even as the Pentagon’s chief officers admit there is a clash between civilizations.
And even patriots who haven’t served, conveniently dumped into the “militia” category (this is not to suggest that dangerous militias don’t need scrutiny…they do, but they are being used as a bugaboo against Tea Partiers and the like) definitely need to pay heed, as ALL patriots are in their cross hairs. Can anyone rationally explain DHS’s shopping spree for billions in ammo/hardware? Nope.
Now the above doesn’t obviate the fact that a small percentage of returning vets come home with problems and are in need of “follow up”. Of course they not only require medical assistance, but are owed the best of care. Yet NOT by DHS’s goons, but by health professionals for PTSD or physical infirmities, and a democratic nation entitles them to as much. And more.
Most revealingly, the core issue is that DHS realizes that those who return intact are not only combat trained, but less likely – after all their sacrifices – to lie down and take commands to give up “this and that”. Herein lies the crux of the spying. The hunt against them too. Evil on its face. By design.
Is it still any wonder why this site compares DHS to Germany’s Gestapo? And if the symbiosis between Obama Inc to Germany’s Gestapo is still seen as a bridge too far, perhaps their coming mandate, to spy on ones fellow workers, will stir the pot. It can be gleaned via Obama’s plan to “predict” future leakers!
