Skip to comments.Just received a visit from the FBI
Posted on 07/30/2011 6:17:27 PM PDT by jongaltsr
A couple of hours ago receive a hard knock on the door. I answered the door and about 7 or 8 agents all flashing badges (claiming to be FBI and/or CIA) rushed me and pushed me against the far wall.
My dog attacked and they would have shot him had I not broken free for a second and covered him by laying him on the floor beneath me.
After things calmed down a bit and I received assurances that nothing would happen to him if I placed him in the bedroom and closed the door.
I did so and they then read me my rights and explained that my opinions expressed on Free Republic were the reason they were there. I had expressed my opinion of what I thought of the current President and the majority in congress and was therefore a potential threat to the government. After what seemed to be hours they came to the conclusion (I hope) that I was merely expressing my opinion and not a leader of a counter revolutionary army - as they saw it.
They searched my apartment for weapons and found 4 (which I have not fired in over a year or more) and they seized them for testing. My dog (Ranger) was not happy with the situation so I had to hold on to him during the search to keep him from being shot.
They also seized my computer and downloaded my entire files system. I suppose they also copied any files erased by normal erasure techniques. They returned the computer as "WAS" (as far as I can tell) but I after careful consideration the past few hours I have concluded that they are monitoring me closely.
I'm not even sure this message will make it through but what else can I do but try?
If (Big IF!) this does make it through, beware. They are watching and may make a visit to your residence and give your the same routine.
It really shook me up and I have trouble keeping my nerves steady and my thoughts straight as I write this message.
Once this gets out (IF THIS GETS OUT) I can pretty much expect their return but this time they probably won't be quite as considerate of myself and my dog who they will probably shoot on sight.
I have packed my truck with essentials but I suspect that there are those that are watching so I may not make it to one of my favorite mountain camping sites.
There I will not have any communications except when I get into town and use WIFI to make any contact.
Good luck and keep your heads down.
They have become serious about enforcing their new powers - and some of us might not make it.
I'll probably be #1 on their list.
Semper Fi and God Bless one and all.

I miss some of the best threads by going dark on the weekends.
Not even close. You should have been here 10+ years ago when there were no mods, and we had Ash, Eschoir, DITHF, A+Bert, CGEB and a whole host of crazies light this place up.
Very strange. Jim must be okay with it, though.
“Dumbbell” is back, with an active account.
Okay, now that is just plain weird. The mod squad or JR must have known of some reason to reinstate it. If the “dumbbell” poster IS in fact the “jongaltsr” poster, then he should re-post on this thread using his “jongaltsr” screen name, since it’s not banned. Why create a new profile and use a new screen name?
Thanks for the heads up. I’m following these developments with interest. I just spent a fair amount of time reading jongaltsr’s posting history and comparing writing styles and information previously disclosed to what dumbbell has posted. At this point, I think there’s a very good chance it’s the same person using two ID’s. Why do that?
It's active now.
Yep. See my post #645, just above yours ^^^
Sorry, I opened the composition page before that was posted.
No problem. You gave me another reason to revisit the thread and see if there was anything new. It’s morbidly fascinating.
If this was a hoax; oh well, we get a few of those now and then and it kind of breaks the dour mood of constant political news and analysis.
I just noticed your tagline. Do you need some help? From a fellow bitter clinging hobbit and all? LOL
Plenty of our “leaders” have been trying to convince me of my deviant ways, but they haven’t succeeded yet. LOL!
Repent! Repent, sayeth the FReeper!
What's this all about?
