Skip to comments.The government's war at home
Posted on 09/29/2012 2:24:36 AM PDT by marktwain
A professor at the United States Military Academy (generally referred to simply as West Point) has recently published an article about "far right violence," naming "anti-federalists" as one of the "three trends of far right violence in the United States." Professor Perliger explains that the "anti-federalist trend" to which he refers is "usually identified in the literature as the 'militia' or 'patriot' movement."
In other words, he is teaching our military cadets that anti-federalists--the ideological descendants of George Mason, Patrick Henry and other "extremists"--along with militias (that which the Bill of Rights identifies as being "necessary to the security of a free state") and patriots represent a terrorist threat to the United States. Mike Vanderboegh provides a detailed analysis of this chilling development.
This is only the latest escalation in what looks to be almost a "cold war" between the government and the people--a war of which most of the people are not even aware. Back in late July, a retired Army colonel who teaches at the University of Foreign Military and Cultural Studies at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas wrote an article in the very influential (in U.S. military circles) Small Wars Journal about crushing a "Tea Party insurgency." The article mentions "insurrectionists" often enough to sound like something written by the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.
This, too, has been deftly analyzed by Mike Vanderboegh. National Conservative Examiner Anthony Martin also has two must-read articles about Colonel Benson's "War on the Tea Party."

Make note, tea partiers. Government employees, i.e., police agencies of any kind at any level, are more likely to be loyal to their paymasters and not those seeking the preservation of freedom and the Constitution. Perhaps only the military itself might support you, however it too, continually is assaulted by the leftist lunatics and is being watered down, effeminized and it’s chiefs are almost exclusively “political” seeking favor with politicians and losing it’s direction. Wake up, America, this isn’t the country you originally grew up in anymore.
So “who” the enemy is the only thing that determines if you’re an antifederalist even if the enemy is a component that is trying to destroy your own government from within by posing to be “them. Makes perfect sense if you’re a liberal or Communist that is the “real” anti-federalist here.
The government, as is, has to go.
Good but disturbing article.
Accurately foretold years ago by “Travis McGee”
Unfortunately we’ve reached a tipping point where we have”diversity”, not a common heritage. Almost half of the population has traded individual liberty for the security of a regular government check. The average poor person on government assistance enjoys a higher standard of living, for no personal effort, than 95% of the world’s population. What does liberty mean for the fourth generation urban welfare youths who live in government housing, eat government provided food, have free cell phones, and are asked to do nothing in return? They have wide screen televisions, easy access to recreational drugs, and free sex with no accountability for the consequences. They have no concept as to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, and civic responsibility on which the nation was founded nor do they care.
I fear our military is also being transformed from the protector of liberty to the enforcer for the state. It is the ultimate consequence of the transition from a citizen army comprised primarily of the state militias and draftees to a standing professional army. The citizen soldier, who is called to service when the nation is in great peril and goes home to live a civilian life once the war is over (think all of our wars through Vietnam), is loyal first to family and community and second to government. The professional career soldier is hired to do the bidding of government, which over the past 30 years has evolved to imperialist intervention in whatever conflict around the world the sitting commander in chief wants to engage in whether or not it is in the national interest or supported by the people. An army that will march into a third world country on the orders of the President, and without a formal declaration of war, will certainly march on citizens inside the country the President designates as involved in insurrection or domestic terrorism. Anyone who does not believe this needs only to reread the history of the US between 1861 and the end of Reconstruction.

These kids are raised up by socialists in a leftist propaganda echo chamber. These kids go on to become our elites.
Undoubtedly they have training videos by now defining the Tea Party as a nationalized grass roots militia that is intent upon the deportation of Moslems, the armed patrolling presence at our borders , the NO gay military policy and of course defenders of the Constitution in totality, especially resisting Federal jack booting techniques.
It all boils down to Obama, the people wouldn’t be willing so much to fight back against the feds if it wasn’t for Obama turning them into his own cold war machine against the people who are obviously just dumb cattle and have to abilities to see a future socialist Garden of Eden they have in store for them.
Conservatives, aka: the Tea Party, are the "Federalists". It's the liberals, socialists, commies, and power hunger pols (like Schumer, Di-Fi, and King Barry) which are the "anti-federalists".
It's they who want the USA to change from our current Federalist form of government with our representative small 'd' democracy to a big 'D' Democracy like in socialist Europe. That's why their current goal is to eliminate the Electoral College and have a direct election of the POTUS based on overall votes.
I first smelled a Rat when the Dems had the House and had those 'No Confidence Votes' like in Europe. I was like, 'WTF?, we don't do those things in America'. So if any group is a threat to the USA, look no further than the Democratic party and the Barking Moonbats who vote for its candidates just so they can get 'Mo' Free Stuff' from the government.
(ps: I wonder who the Professor voted for?) ;-)
"Secession belongs to a different class of remedies. It is to be justified upon the basis that the States are Sovereign. There was a time when none denied it. I hope the time may come again, when a better comprehension of the theory of our Government, and the inalienable rights of the people of the States, will prevent any one from denying that each State is a Sovereign, and thus may reclaim the grants which it has made to any agent whomsoever."
-- President Jefferson Davis CSA
Good speeches? Only two of the speakers, Patrick Henry and A. Lincoln are worth keeping. The rest should have died in prison serving time for treason, sedition etc.
It’s pretty clear that the sight of this “Tea Part” coming out of nowhere with no leaders and demonstrating by their presence badly frightened the smart man who run things.

What I posted on the Examiner article under my own name:
How do you spot National Socialist Stormtroopers? There is a dead giveaway: they always prefer to dress from helmet to jackboots in scary solid black. It was true of the National Socialist SS Stormtroopers in 1942, and it's true of the National Socialist DHS Stormtroopers in 2012. There is no camouflage value to solid black uniforms, their intended purpose is only to terrorize the civilian population.
Put all of those federal "Special Response Teams" together with their new black MRAP APCs, and billions of hollowpoint bullets, and think about what President Obama declared about wanting his own civilian military force that is as strong as the actual military. Ponder these essays written for our military officers about crushing domestic right wing insurrections, and the conclusion becomes inescapable that the federal governme...nt is preparing to stamp out freedom in the name of a new all-powerful Security State.
Federal Law Enforcement Agents had better look in the mirror and ponder their own oaths to defend the U.S. Constitution against ALL enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC, and they had better do the math on bullets and rifles too. A billion bullets divided up by 200,000 armed FLEAs sounds like a lot, but the USA is not Germany circa 1933 or Venezuela or Cuba. There are tens of millions of Americans who also took the same oath, who own tens of millions of scoped deer rifles. Something for treasonous FLEAs to consider very carefully.
If you are ordered to turn your guns against Americans in the name of a national security crackdown against freedom, is that paycheck worth sacrificing your sacred honor? You boys and girls in the fusion centers who are tasked with monitoring websites like this, think about it very, very carefully. Your oath, your sacred honor, against your paycheck. What is a paycheck worth if you are ordered to violate your sacred sworn oath? Read "What I saw at the coup" to imagine a different "vision of the future" from the one described in Colonel Benson's SWJ essay. Then think about which side you witll choose: your sworn oath and your sacred honor, or "just following orders" to keep that federal paycheck coming in.
Think about it carefully.

No, it isn’t. It had been gradually changing over the years. The WTC attack sped it up some and on November 4, 2008, it went to Full Speed Hhead, and is still increasing in speed. When and how it will end is anyone’s guess.
I hope it will end in the right way, but history and time is not on that side.
You’re shouting into a well, Travis.
Americans refuse to believe that they already live under a socialist regime.
I’ve seen that pic before.
Good stuff, Travis. I’m sure we’re all on a list somewhere.
There is no reason to imagine that American National Socialists would have better luck trying it on our own homeland in the name of “State Security.”
Ten or twenty million “Militias of One” would be very difficult to subdue. Social Network Analysis won't work where there is no social network to analyze.
Something for the budding National Socialist State Security operatives in the fusion centers to analyze very, very carefully.
Too many to count.
We went to a volunteer Army because in 1973 both parties worked to end the draft (not sure how else you would bring back a citizen soldier Army). Also, citizen soldier armies have a bad habit of getting their asses handed to them at the start of a war before they figure out what they're doing (the Colonial Army, War of 1812-Battle of Niagra, Bull Run, Kasserine Pass, Task Force Smith), which is another reason why the Army wished to go to a "professional" force after WWII since they thought they wouldn't have a chance to go through the classic "get beat first then learn" model witht the Soviets.
A few hundred “Militias of One” in Northern Ireland were virtually impossible to subdue.
I love Oleg’s images. That guy rocks.
Outstanding post at #7.
JSR...... is that you?
We need to keep track of these gay Che boys and their careers. Bammy won’t be in power forever. This little treasonous jihadist needs a jail cell.
He’s trying to shift the resources for the government’s war on terror from his Islamic jihad pals onto Americans - in particular American vets.
Next time a terror attack happens (and it will since our government is infiltrated with jihad sympathizers and shifting it’s efforts against America’s jihad’s political enemies), remember this inside traitor and what he’s done here when everyone is whinning “what happened.” Blog about it when the time comes. Name ‘em and shame ‘em. Report them and their pro jihad activities to representatives and Senators. Make sure Vet organizations know who they are.
Excellent way of putting it. A 'cold war' indeed.
God help us all if it goes hot, and if it does, you can be assured it will be the FedGov who starts it. That's not the way it will be reported to the sheeple, however -- not from the 'Special Agents in Charge' and certainly not from their ever-reliable lapdog press.
Edmund Burke had some interesting thoughts on this whole subject. The only thing new here is that it's taking place in America.
And what will the rest of the world do? Sit idly by? I think not. If the U.S. is removed from the global scene as a stabilizing influence, the variables become too many to calculate. I predict one thing in common -- they will all drive negative.
I get to Cheyenne, Wyoming quite regularly. The Wyoming Dept. of Homeland Security has an armory in town and now has both a tracked artillary piece and now a full size howitzer parked there. What in the heck does Wyoming Homeland Security need with a howitzer? Seriously, what is it for?
I beg pardon, those people DO have 1, yes, 1 single responsibility: Vote Democrat.
#7 is a great post!
Read 7 tonite.
“Like I said before. Its not going to be for the squeamish. But its what works.”
That is a very good plan!
The good Colonel should remember to mention to his students that the military has wargamed them agains’t us and they lose hands down.
Ever since I joined FR I have been asking and warning about the tipping point. Personally, I think we passed it when 0bambi was elected. The people who elected him were blinded by hate and guilt to hear what he said he would do.
Four years have past, we are further past the tipping point as to be beyond hope. So, now what do we do?
IF SECESSION NOT, THEN REVOLUTION MUST.
“Four years have past, we are further past the tipping point as to be beyond hope. So, now what do we do?”
The collapse is coming. Those who survive will pick up the pieces and attempt to rebuild or will be slaughtered by the barbarians while trying. We desperately need a strong leader who is virtuous, visionary, incorruptible, an effective communicator, philosophical, courageous, and a patriot. Unfortunately, unlike our founders we do not live in the Age of Reason. We live in the Age of Self Indulgence. Our leaders reflect the times.
Fire this bastard!!
I disagree. The war has already gone hot, with things like Ruby Ridge, Waco, and recently with Fast and Furious. The People so far have shown great restraint, although how much longer that restraint will last is anybody’s guess.
The howitzer is to murder people like you. And me. (Although I might possibly be out of its range.)
“Unfortunately weve reached a tipping point where we havediversity, not a common heritage.” ... And it is by design not accidental. Little barry bastard commie presiding in the White House is there by the same designers ...
That’s the horror of the government school system. This guy is a top teacher at likely the top grammar school in Chicago. It’s all liberal pablum all the time and it goes on through HS.
The first day back from the Chicago school strike and the HS kids were writing essays on unionism and whether the strike was a good thing or a bad thing. Guess which classes those were?
Health and computer science.
The rest of the time was teachers saying how they “did it for you children”. They didn’t want the kids to be over-crowded, yet they’re still over-crowded and they’ve been over-crowded for years.
Vouchers can’t wait for another generation. America cannot afford it.
It’s the “Cold Civil War.”
God help us all if it goes hot. A “dirty civil war” is the worst outcome imaginable.
It’ll scare some.
For others...just makes ‘em easier to see further away.
