Confirmed: The Obama DHS hit job on conservatives is real ^ | April 14, 2009 12:01 AM | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 04/13/2009 10:02:53 PM PDT by ebiskit

Yesterday, Roger Hedgecock and the Liberty Papers posted an unclassified DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis report titled:

Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.

The “report” was one of the most embarrassingly shoddy pieces of propaganda I’d ever read out of DHS. I couldn’t believe it was real.

I spent the day chasing down DHS spokespeople, who have been tied up preparing for a very important homeland security event later today: The First Lady is coming to visit their Washington office. Priorities, you know.

Well, the press office got back to me and verified that the document is indeed for real.

They were very defensive — preemptively so — in asserting that it was not a politicized document and that DHS had done reports on “leftwing extremism” in the past. I have covered DHS for many years and am quite familiar with past assessments they and the FBI have done on animal rights terrorists and environmental terrorists. But those past reports have always been very specific in identifying the exact groups, causes, and targets of domestic terrorism, i.e., the ALF, ELF, and Stop Huntingdon wackos who have engaged in physical harassment, arson, vandalism, and worse against pharmaceutical companies, farms, labs, and university researchers.

By contrast, the piece of crap report issued on April 7 is a sweeping indictment of conservatives. And the intent is clear. As the two spokespeople I talked with on the phone today made clear: They both pinpointed the recent “economic downturn” and the “general state of the economy” for stoking “rightwing extremism.” One of the spokespeople said he was told that the report has been in the works for a year. My b.s. detector went off the chart, and yours will, too, if you read through the entire report — which asserts with no evidence that an unquantified “resurgence in rightwing extremist recruitment and radicalizations activity” is due to home foreclosures, job losses, and…the historical presidential election.

In Obama land, there are no coincidences. It is no coincidence that this report echoes Tea Party-bashing left-wing blogs (check this one out comparing the Tea Party movement to the Weather Underground!) and demonizes the very Americans who will be protesting in the thousands on Wednesday for the nationwide Tax Day Tea Party.

From the report, p.2:

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.

From the report. p. 3:

(U//LES) 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. Rightwing extremists are increasingly galvanized by these concerns and leverage them as drivers for recruitment. From the 2008 election timeframe to the present, rightwing extremists have capitalized on related racial and political prejudices in expanded propaganda campaigns, thereby reaching out to a wider audience of potential sympathizers.

(U) Exploiting Economic Downturn

(U//FOUO) Rightwing extremist chatter on the Internet continues to focus on the economy, the perceived loss of U.S. jobs in the manufacturing and construction sectors, and home foreclosures. Anti-Semitic extremists attribute these losses to a deliberate conspiracy conducted by a cabal of Jewish “financial elites.” These “accusatory” tactics are employed to draw new recruits into rightwing extremist groups and further radicalize those already subscribing to extremist beliefs. DHS/I&A assesses this trend is likely to accelerate if the economy is perceived to worsen.

From the report, p. 5:

(U//FOUO) Over the past five years, various rightwing extremists, including militias and white supremacists, have adopted the immigration issue as a call to action, rallying point,
and recruiting tool. Debates over appropriate immigration levels and enforcement policy generally fall within the realm of protected political speech under the First Amendment, but in some cases, anti-immigration or strident pro-enforcement fervor has been directed against specific groups and has the potential to turn violent.

And echoing the anti-military bigotry last seen in that disgusting Penn State University training video, there’s this on p. 7:

(U) Disgruntled Military Veterans

(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A assesses that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat. These skills and knowledge have the potential to boost the capabilities of extremists—including lone wolves or small terrorist cells—to carry out violence. The willingness of a small percentage of military personnel to join extremist groups during the 1990s because they were disgruntled, disillusioned, or suffering from the psychological effects of war is being replicated today.

There’s no hackneyed left-wing stereotype of conservatives left behind in this DHS intelligence and analysis assessment. I asked both DHS spokespeople to tell me who, specifically, the report was accusing of “rightwing extremist chatter” and which “antigovernment” groups are being monitored as “extremists.” They say they’ll get back to me.

In the meantime, be aware of this from the report, p. 8:

(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A will be working with its state and local partners over the next several months to ascertain with greater regional specificity the rise in rightwing extremist activity in the United States, with a particular emphasis on the political, economic, and social factors that drive rightwing extremist radicalization.

Better make a few last-minute signs for the Tea Party. Obama’s DHS is watching:

Honk if you’re a radicalized rightwing extremist!

Guilty of rightwing extremist chatter

Anti-government, pro-freedom: Sue me

I said the same about ‘no child left behind’ and the ‘faith based initiatives,’ in time they will all be co-opted and used to destroy the fabric of the very America they were designed to enrich.

The time is nigh for "faith based initiatives":

It was more an act of revenge for Waco.

McVeigh's elevator didn't go all the way to the top of the building, if you catch my drift. Nevertheless, it's no secret that this was precisely his intent, and his prosecutors made no secret of this fact. His crime was murder.

He was "the lone wolf" these paranoid idiots picture when coming up with this incitement.

I wonder how many Predator drones will be sighted, circling over Tea Party sites and taking high-res closeup photos to add to Ubama's "smear and destroy" database as well as to incorporate into biometric databases. Later on this summer when somebody wants to vacation in the Cayman Islands, he or she may be pulled aside and advised that they are on the terrorist "no fly" list because they are a 'suspected member of a hate group'.

The one thing about McVeigh, he knew how to get good deals on fertilizer. That $h!t is expensive. I wonder if he combined coupons with store sales. You know, you can get coupons for just about anything on Ebay. /sarc>

If you are the subject of a committed unannounced "raid" and you're unaware that you've been specifically targeted for such action, it'll be over before you can become fully awake from your sweet dreams. Because they will execute a "no-knock" warrant at about 0300HRS and will kill the dog or dogs within milliseconds of making the breach into your home with sound suppressors, called "Hush Puppies" for a reason.

The best you can hope for is to make the proposition very expensive for the intrusion team in terms of lives...

Seems that one would be wise to increase the enemy's breach time by spending extra money to make the primary entrance more breach resistant. I wonder what other counter measures could be taken so that the costs to the intrusion team would be maximized.

Agree with the rest of your post...

Sadly, there are long- preexisting laws which make this illegal, the rationale being that the fire department as well as police have to be able to get into any private residence.  It's illegal to put a bank vault door on the front of your house...

I would imagine that this is all a matter of degree, however, which may vary considerably from one community to another.

They have been reshuffling the deck of Illuminati cards. You have to watch how they deal this hand very carefully.

Obama has already played the "Population Reduction" card which was the first move in his presidency - to increase funding of abortions and population control abroad with U.S. tax dollars. Then they went after Rush Limbaugh. And now they are hyping the Right-Wing extremists panic again (since they did this in the 1990s when Clinton was president). Just as a rough guess, it seems likely they will go to the "Epidemic" card next, hyping some panic about Bird Flu, SARS, a new mutated form of AIDS or some as yet unknown virus which they will hype a panic about, claiming everyone needs some new vaccine.

Or they could go back to the Rush Limbaugh card.

Anyway, we predicted it here.
Watch for a new bogeyman on the Right to emerge.

Also, the Spring issue of Paranoia magazine has one howler of an article on Obama's astrological chart, if anyone needs some laugh therapy on Obama and the economy: "Obama-Neptune Trance Formation in America." It will read somewhat like something from The Onion at first, but posits a symbiotic and synergistic relation between Obama's grandiosity and powerlust and the nation's appetite for paranoia. A real hoot!

"Obama's personal Mars manner triggers in Americans both positive feelings of selflessness and negative inclinations toward servitude, and these feeling-inclinations stand alongside our rational brain threatening to bypass all critical thoughts we might otherwise entertain about anything he says or does. Obama's words and actions plug directly into America's Neptune Soul. Both he and his advisors are acutely aware of this. This assures him of the ability to personally exercise considerable power in, over, with, and through the collective American Soul. His personal charismatic power easily bypasses our rationl brain and appeals directly to our yearning for the much-needed experience of selflessness. This can be and is a very dangerous situation for a Nation only four years into its Neptune-Pisces transformation. It can lead us further into Trance-formation. It can seriously aggravate America's collective psychosis, the delusional state of mind called the "War on Terror."

...We must not allow ourselves to be deceived by Obama's Neptune Glamour, by his personal charisma, but keep in mind that he's a man born with both his Mercury and Sun in challenging square aspect to Neptune. Notwithstanding the fact that his dramatic Mercury speech opposes his expansive Jupiter rhetoric in idealistic Aquarius, all that points to is a marked capacity for inflated idealism of the intellectual variety. He is easily self-deceived and just as easily deceives others. No blame, maybe, just a rather grandiose notion of himself and an exaggerated belief in his own abilities. Remember, all Americans are currently caught up in a wave of Neptunian energy.... A rebellion wil break out among the homeless, the poor, the workers, but it will be undermined by the pod-like passivity of the negative Pisces-Neptune energy most recently witnessed in the behavior of the Obama Trancers sumgly wallowing in a veritable orgy of self-satisfied "victory" over their imagined "Change." "

Apparently, there is a highly unstable and dangerous Saturn-Uranus Opposition in Obama's chart which presumably could destabilize his utopian Aquarius-Pisces Idealism. Watch for more difficulties and dialectical conflicts ahead as he tries to ascend in orbit to the Moon with this unstable foundation. Always a problem for utopian Alinskyite Neptunians from Harvard, for some strange reason.

Louis de Wohl and Joan Quigley, call your offices.

“...In the context of the “tea parties,” left wing blogs and websites are already discussing ways to disrupt them. Expect racist posters etc, or people dressed as the “White Nazi Tea Party Militia” etc.

The MSM will cover these loons in complete gullible sincerity, playing these “false flag” disruptors as 100% legit.”

That's where one of these comes in handy (Go to post 50):

Depends on where you live. If I lived in the desert south west, I'd put in a huge barrier of cactus around my windows and then separate them from kids and dogs by another less painful hedge or barrier. Here in South Florida we cultivate the Bouganvillea plant for it's stunning array of beautiful flowers. The by product is a set of thorns two inches long and about the diameter of your pinky finger on a mature plant. They don't easily snap and are very hardy plants. Grow like a weed, too.

Back in 1996, I fought with an intruder trying to gain entry into my home in the middle of the night. After I hit him, he was pretty disoriented. The cops told me he apparently staggered across the street and thru another yard before running into a huge "Bougie" bush. They said he musta pushed his way thru an easy EIGHT FEET of mature thorns. Said it looked like a slaughter house with the huge pools of blood. I swear, they put out the BOLO for a "shredded perp!" He was never caught though. The cops examined my bruised and bloodied fists and the area of the hedge and remarked that I'd gotten the best justice possible anyway.

As far as the front door area as the most likely breach point, I'll be building my dream home (in Idaho) with that in mind (if I live long enough) someday and it will include a 360 perimeter wall with an electronic outer and inner gate and NO blind spots. Anybody approaching the front door from ANY angle will find themselves in a KZ that won't be easy to exit. However, until that time, I'm stuck in suburbia in south Florida and my front door will be very vulnerable to most any entry ram chosen.

Before anyone gets too freaked out over things like this, always remember, you're dealing with government employees. Their IQ’s and thought processes are much lower than the average American citizen. This would explain the absolute stupidity behind an attack like this on Constitutionalists, Conservatives, non-Obama supporting citizens and their likes. Keep it in perspective and plan accordingly.

Also, with that in mind, it is very believable that this doc went public and had the dates changed at the last minute. 1+1=3 if they say so.
