Homeland Security Report Lists ‘Liberty Lovers’ As Terrorists

Comments Off on Homeland Security Report Lists ‘Liberty Lovers’ As Terrorists

Is this unbelieveable or what? People that love their Liberty or who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority (like the founding fathers were), believe their “way of life” is under attack,People who consider themselves “anti-global”, people opposed to abortion are listed as Terrorists. Can you believe that? Well it’s true. What has happened to our government’s thinking like this? This is contrary to normal thinking or reasoning. $12 million was spent on this study.

A new study funded by the Department of Homeland Security characterizes Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists.

Entitled Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970-2008 (PDF), the study was produced by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland. The organization was launched with the aid of DHS funding to the tune of $12 million dollars.

While largely omitting Islamic terrorism – the report fails completely to mention the 1993 World Trade Center bombing – the study focuses on Americans who hold beliefs shared by the vast majority of conservatives and libertarians and puts them in the context of radical extremism.

The report takes its definitions from a 2011 study entitled Profiles of Perpetrators of Terrorism, produced by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism, in which the following characteristics are used to identify terrorists.

– Americans who believe their “way of life” is under attack;

– Americans who are “fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation)”;

– People who consider themselves “anti-global” (presumably those who are wary of the loss of American sovereignty);

– Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority”;

– Americans who are “reverent of individual liberty”;

– People who “believe in conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty.”

The report also lists people opposed to abortion and “groups that seek to smite the purported enemies of God and other evildoers” as terrorists.

As we have exhaustively documented on numerous occasions, federal authorities and particularly the Department of Homeland Security have been involved in producing a deluge of literature which portrays liberty lovers and small government advocates as terrorists.

Homeland Security Advisor Mohammed Elibiary Alledgedly Leaked Documents

Comments Off on Homeland Security Advisor Mohammed Elibiary Alledgedly Leaked Documents

Why aren’t we hearing from mainstream media on this one?

As an advisor to the Department of Homeland Security, Mohammed Elibiary was given access to sensitive government documents.

Now, the Texas Muslim activist stands accused of leaking some of those documents to the media to spread charges of “Islamophobia.”

One lawmaker on Capitol Hill is demanding answers.

Texas Mole?

Out of 26 members on the Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Council, only Elibiary was granted access to a nationwide database that includes terror watch lists and sensitive FBI reports.

It’s unclear why Elibiary was given this special privilege — but he now finds himself in hot water.

He’s accused of taking confidential documents from the Texas Department of Public Safety and shopping them to the media.

His reported goal was to damage Texas governor and GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry by showing the so-called “Islamophobia” of Texas government agencies.

“Within hours of getting access he had downloaded those documents and began marketing to these publications,” investigative journalist Patrick Poole told CBN News.

Poole broke the story at PJMedia.com after being tipped off by one of the publications about Elibiary’s alleged plans.

“Oddly enough, Elibiary sits on the Texas Department of Public Safety Advisory Council,” Poole said. “This was his own agency that he was sabotaging — or trying to sabotage.”

This article has an amazing video with it……a must see.

Nano Hummingbird Spy Drone Being Developed By Pentagon

A less advanced version of it made the news rounds in 2009, but the latest will blow you away.

It has taken five years to build and cost $4 million, per the Los Angeles Times, but the new model of the Nano Hummingbird drone really looks like a bird flying around. It would allow the military to literally drop a bird at a window ledger for reconnaissance purposes.

“You can use these things anywhere, put them anyplace, and the target will never even know they’re being watched,” said defense expert Peter W. Singer.

AOL News reports it’s just a research project for now, but the battery-powered drone has a front-facing camera and can fly for up to eight minutes at a time.

Trusted Traveler Program Lets Mexicans Skip TSA Airport Security

Comments Off on Trusted Traveler Program Lets Mexicans Skip TSA Airport Security

You just have to ask yourself….what the heck is going on with this TSA stuff and Janet Napolitano. Mexicans and Muslim Women can skip this nonsense with the TSA, but God above forbid you and I skip these naked body scans or pat downs. Making these exceptions violates the 14th amendment. Of course the searches violate the 4th amendment, but who in the government cares about the Constitution anymore or even some judges too. Some how we’ve got to get back to the Constitution and rule of law in stead of this appearance of lawlessness message the government is sending out to us and the world.

Trusted Traveler Program Lets Mexicans Skip Airport Security

As violent drug cartels take over Mexico and expand their criminal enterprises north, the United States has signed a “trusted traveler” agreement that allows pre-screened Mexican airline passengers to bypass lengthy airport security checkpoints.

The foreigners will get “trusted traveler cards” with fingerprints and other biometric data and they must answer customs declarations questions on touch-screen kiosks before leaving airport inspection areas. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano claims it’s a way to enhance information sharing and mutual security in the face of “ever-evolving, multinational threats.”

About 84 million Mexicans are expected to qualify for the trusted traveler program, according to Mexico’s Interior Ministry Secretary, who signed the agreement on behalf of his country this week. Celebrating the festive occasion, the Mexican government official assured that the new accord will facilitate the U.S. entry of business travelers and tourists who are key factors in economic development, growth of trade and cultural exchange.

Mexicans will get the perk through the U.S. government’s Global Entry Program, which allows participants to obtain security clearance by presenting a “machine-readable” passport or resident card at airport “Global Entry kiosks.” The machines issue the foreign travelers a transaction receipt and directions to baggage claim and the exit into the United States. Applying is easy. Candidates fill out an online application, provide valid identification and answer a few questions from a Customs and Border Protection officer.

While Napolitano was in Mexico finalizing the trusted traveler agreement this week, she also took the opportunity to sign a “letter of intent” to develop a plan for protecting immigrants from criminal attacks as they cross the border—illegally—into the U.S. Mexican officials have long complained that American law enforcement officers stand by as illegal immigrants are robbed, killed or violently beaten. Napolitano has committed to reducing the risk to life and security of migrants, according to the Mexican minister.

ICE Withholds Illegal Immigration Enforcement Data

Comments Off on ICE Withholds Illegal Immigration Enforcement Data

More lack of transparency from the most promised Transparent Administration ever……Barack Husein Obama.

ICE Withholds Enforcement Data

Despite President Obama’s promise to create an unprecedented level of openness in government, the Homeland Security agency responsible for enforcing immigration laws is illegally withholding crucial data about its enforcement performance, according to a reputable independent research center that monitors the federal government.

Just six months ago, another Homeland Security agency— U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services—tried blocking the disclosure of information by charging the same group (Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse—TRAC) a ghastly $111,930 to obtain a description of files stored on a database. When news spread of the outrageous demand, the agency admitted it acted inappropriately and subsequently provided the records.

This week TRAC is accusing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) of serious legal and procedural violations for failing to disclose performance data on how the agency is enforcing immigration laws. In doing so, ICE is violating long standing provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) as well as its own administrative rules and policies set by the Department of Justice.http://trac.syr.edu/foia/ice/20101004/

Seeking to determine if the federal government is fulfilling its responsibility, TRAC requested the records to reveal what ICE is doing and not doing to enforce the nation’s immigration laws. Specifically the public records request asked for the agency’s anonymous alien-by-alien statistical data about the arrests, detentions, charges and removal activities.

Among the anonymous statistical data that ICE previously released but now said were “unavailable” were the city or state where the alien’s apprehension took place, the facility where the alien is currently being detained, the nature of the formal removal charges, the details of any criminal charges and the alien’s marital status.

Obama Hauls Arizona Before the UN Human Rights Council

4 Comments

What the heck does this president think he’s doing? He obviously doesn’t think he has a case in the courts against Arizona, so he’s going to use the argument of “human rights” against Arizona to the UN? I’m at a loss  for words here, so I’m going to ask the question my Constitutional lawyer asked, “Can anyone find any provision in Our Constitution which permits the Executive Branch to “submit” our domestic issues to an international body for determination?”

The report describes how the United States discriminates against the disabled, homosexuals, women, Native Americans, blacks, Hispanics and those who don’t speak English. There is the expected pandering to Muslims, noting that the government is committed to “challenge misperceptions and discriminatory stereotypes, to prevent acts of vandalism and to combat hate crimes,” offenses that the American people evidently keep committing. And the current economic woes are blamed on the housing crisis, which itself was the result of “discriminatory lending practices.” The implication is that if Americans had only been less racist, they would be enjoying prosperity today.

The report notes that until recently, the U.S. engaged in torture, unlawfully detained terrorist suspects and illegally spied on Americans communicating with terrorists – but the report assures readers that Mr. Obama has been putting a stop to all that.

The authors claim that the United States does not, by filing the report, “acknowledge commonality with states that systematically abuse human rights,” but of course it does. Dictatorships, authoritarian regimes and theocracies competing for legitimacy on the world stage have been handed a potent new weapon, the kind of assessment they would never offer about their own governments. The report also cautions that it should not be read to reflect “doubt in the ability of the American political system to deliver progress for its citizens.” The authors of the report should understand that the doubts in the Obama administration to deliver progress are already well-established. And they come from the American people, who don’t need the United Nations telling them to shape up.

Obama Hauls Arizona Before the UN Human Rights Council

Apparently Barack Obama is not content to makefederal case out of his immigration feud with Arizona; he just made it an international one.

The president’s first-ever report on U.S. human rights to the UN Human Rights Council contains a rich vein of offensive material. So far, one aspect has not been reported: our petty president used the situation to bashArizona’s immigration lawand possibly transfer jurisdiction over the law from Arizona to the UN. Throughout the report, which sounds like an Obama campaign speech, the president discusses “the original flaw” of the U.S. Constitution, America’s tolerance for slavery, and his version of our long and despicable history of discriminating against and oppressing minorities, women, homosexuals, and the handicapped. After each complaint, he addresses how he is delivering us from ourselves, patting himself on the back for such initiatives as ending “torture,” promoting Affirmative Action, and passing health care legislation.

In his section on “Values and Immigration,” he praised the Department of Homeland Security’s efforts to provide better medical care for detainees and increase “Alternatives To Detention” (e.g., letting them go). Then he turned to the one state that has had the temerity to stand in his way of fundamentally transforming the American electorate:

A recent Arizona law, S.B. 1070, has generated significant attention and debate at home and around the world. The issue is being addressed in a court action that argues that the federal government has the authority to set and enforce immigration law. That action is ongoing; parts of the law are currently enjoined.

On Obama’s command, Attorney General Eric Holder has sued the State of Arizona for passing a law that he criticized without reading, and which merely upholds federal law. (He gave sanctuary cities a pass.) He now threatens an additional lawsuit against Sheriff Joe Arpaio for “racial profiling” when arresting illegal immigrants near the Mexican border.

Obama’s turns his skirmish with Jan Brewer from a states rights dispute into an international human rights cause. It also places Arizona’s law in the hands of the United Nations.

The national report is but the first step of the international government’s review process. On November 5, the United States will be examined by a troika of UN bureaucrats from France, Japan, and Cameroon (an oppressive nation which is a member of the Organization of Islamic Conference). This trio will consider three items: Obama’s self-flagellating report, reports written about America by UN tribunals or international governing bodies, and testimony from NGOs with a pronounced anti-American bias. It will also consider “voluntary pledges and commitments made by the State,” such as suspending an Arizona state law.

Then the French, Japanese, and Cameroon diplomats will draw up a plan of action for the United States to implement.

Nations are re-examined every four years. The Human Rights Council looks for voluntary compliance. However, its website asserts, “The Human Rights Council will decide on the measures it would need to take in case of persistent non-cooperation by a State with the” World Body.

When the Left cannot win at the ballot box (virtually every time), it overrules the people in the courts. Now that Obama is not sure he can prevail in the courts, he has overruled the American people by hauling Arizona and the two-thirds of Americans who support its law before the United Nations.

Obama Justice Dept. Argued in Favor of Using Race As a Relevant Factor Among Others to Justify Immigration Stops

Comments Off on Obama Justice Dept. Argued in Favor of Using Race As a Relevant Factor Among Others to Justify Immigration Stops

Ooops! Let’s see what was that the federal government was arguing about being so bad about the new Arizona Immigration Law (SB 1070) ? Oh, yes, it was RACIAL PROFILING wasn’t it….yes indeed it was. So what now do we see the federal government has argued in favor of? Racial Profiling !!! Ooops, as we say here in Tennessee, kind of ” like the pot calling the kettle black.”

Obama Justice Dept. Argued in Favor of Using Race As a Relevant Factor Among Others to Justify Immigration Stops

In at least three court cases, President Obama’s Justice Department has argued in favor of federal law enforcement officers using race as a factor in determining whether to stop someone for a suspected immigration violation.

It has done so despite the fact that the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) report that they do not engage in “racial profiling.”

The Justice Department’s legal arguments in defense of federal law enforcement officers using race as one factor among others in making immigration stops are based on the 1975 Supreme Court decision, U.S. v. Brignoni-Ponce. In that case, the court held 9-0 that an officer making an immigration stop must be able to cite “specific articulable facts” that “reasonably warrant suspicion” that illegal aliens are present.

“Except at the border and its functional equivalents, officers on roving patrol may stop vehicles only if they are aware of specific articulable facts, together with rational inferences from those facts, that reasonably warrant suspicion that the vehicles contain aliens who may be illegally in the country,” the court ruled in Brignoni-Ponce.

The Court said law enforcement officers could not stop a car merely because the occupants appeared to be of Mexican descent, but that they could consider such an appearance as one factor in making a determination that there was “reasonable suspicion” that illegal aliens were present.
