West Point center cites
dangers of ‘far right’ in U.S.

Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/17/2013 9:32:51 PM

A West Point think tank has issued a paper warning America about “far right” groups such as the “anti-federalist” movement, which supports “civil activism, individual freedoms and self-government.” The report issued this week by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., is titled “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.” The center — part of the institution where men and women are molded into Army officers — posted the report Tuesday. It lumps limited government activists with three movements it identifies as “a racist/white supremacy movement, an anti-federalist movement

Comments:
Wow. Things sure have changed haven´t they. Uh, shouldn´t this Combating Terrorism Center be paying more attention to the Muslim terrorists?? I note there is no mention of the Black Panthers and their racist movement and threats of anarchy. Good. Grief.

Wow those of us who support individual liberty and self government have officially become enemies if the state. Let me be the first on this thread to wear the title proudly.

No offense to many many many fine Army officers and solders past and present, but if I had to venture which of the services this would come from, "Army" would have been out of my mouth instantly.

When the full revolt occurs, the fascist/socialist in the goobernment (Obambi, Reid, Piglosi et a) will depend on the military to kill its own citizens. This has to have a very strong officer corps as many of the GIs, marines, and sailors will disobey orders. Thus a strong f=group of jr. officers are needed to control and get enlisted service personnel to kill US citizens. This study is to mind wash the very officers that will be crucial in saving the tyrannical and evil federal goobernment we now have.

Under our current President, the federal government is generally forbidden to suggest that there is any connection between Muslims or Islam and terrorism. That is why the Fort Hood shooting is officially workplace violence, not Islamic terrorism. Conservatives however are fair game. Our President has often alluded to the fact that he considers republicans and conservatives as enemies.

The left is constantly in cover-up mod! Accuse your perceived enemy of what is pervasive in their own mitts! It helps the stupid to look away! Just a generalized statement, no need to give a real example when non can be found! Of course, it can always be made-up!

What did you really expect? The fish rots from the head down. Further, do you think that the CIA - which recruits heavily from the ´elite´ left-wing universities - is conservative? BHO would fit right in ideologically.

Was the British MI5 reliable during the Cold War? It recruited from Oxbridge.

I will admit I am not that impressed by the Regular Army based on my tour in Iraq. Us Guardsman can do in a weekend what it takes the Regular Army all month to do.

That said, most Army officers are NOT from West Point.

I think when it comes down to it, Barry will learn that he can never use the military against Americans. That just isn´t the way we are trained. Plus there are many TEA Party and Oath Keepers in the Armed Forces.

I have wondered for a while if Colin Powell is an anomaly coming out of our military. It is apparent that he is not. The corruption of our military leadership has threatened the freedom of the individual citizen. With a corrupted mind in charge of the military, it only requires like-minded military leaders to destroy the freedoms generations have worked and struggled to build and maintain.

The Founding Fathers feared a standing army as a threat to individual freedom. Since WW II we have had the most powerful standing army on the planet. It has been an army led by men who stood with freedom. However, I fear that such is no longer true. This "paper" has the odor of a position statement; it´s a not so subtle note to The Won that they have his back.

It says anti-federalists “espouse strong convictions regarding the federal government, believing it to be corrupt and tyrannical, with a natural tendency to intrude on individuals’ civil and constitutional rights. Finally, they support civil activism, individual freedoms, and self government. Extremists in the anti-federalist movement direct most their violence against the federal government and its proxies in law enforcement.”

And? Am I missing something?? Didn´t Reagan say the Govt is not the solution but the problem? Would he make the List?

More PROOF that the people in our Federal Government are looking to crack down and create a totalitarian tyranny. They don´t want people to be free and self-govern. They want complete and total control. They are pure evil and this is exactly why the 2nd Amendment was written and why there should be absolutely NO gun control laws at all. NONE. I would rather have crazies with guns than these tyrants.

I know nothing about this center but generations ago the left targeted and infiltrated key elements of this society -- education, information, entertainment, respected philanthropic foundations, the State Department, the courts, the Democrat party...you get the idea. A look into the who´s who at West Point would be interesting.

From the beginning, it has been Obama and his fellow Democrats intention to change the US military from an entity meant to defend the country from external threats to an internal politicized police force to control the States and the citizens. All senior military promotions are based on political loyalty to the Party. No dissent is allowed down to at least the rank of Corporal. We are nearing the end game for what was once America.

It is best to be informed before forming opinions. The concern should be also that those on the left with a totalitarian agenda will attempt to lump all opposition to their policies into the ´far right´ category in order to achieve their own tyrannical goals.

Those who truly care about the Founding Documents don´t want tyranny in any form from any group.

This is what you get when progressive/socialists take over public education at all levels. They are simply prepairing "their" troops to enable them to forcefully implement their progressive/socialist agenda for this nation. Remember that there are approx 45 million military veterans in this country who will not go quietly into the realm of progressive/socialism. They are equally as capable as those being indoctrinated at West Point. Annapolis, or the Air Force Academy, in prosecuting armed conflict. May even be better.

Translation:

America’s Violent Far-Right = Anyone to the right of the Moderates; Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, and Waxman.

Enemy of the State = Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y.

Barking moonbat-crazy lies = the liberal-democratic system is designed to emphasize civil rights, minority rights and the balance of power.

US Constitutional Patriots = Citizens that support civil activism, individual freedoms, and self government.

Since when is America threatened by "civil activism, individual freedom and self government?"

When the Occupy Wall Street jackasses were camping everywhere, we heard nothing but PRAISE for them from the press!

These same OWS lunatics were committing murders, dealing drugs, stealing, defecating on police cars and plotting to blow up bridges!

Did you ever see any TEA Party members engaged in these horrifying activities?

Of course not.

Once again the angry, violent Left is excused for all their horrific actions, while freedom-loving, peaceful people are persecuted for thinking that maybe, just maybe, our government should have to function within the confines of our founding document, the Constitution of the United States.

Doesn´t targeting Americans for their politics qualify as a violation of the constitution? I understand this is an expansion of what the progressives are doing in schools, movies, MSM & elsewhere... but labeling conservatives as terrorists & training the military to be prepared to fight Americans... must break some law.

Thanks for the link #24. Skimming through, the author(s) are conflating White Separatist/White Power/Neo-Nazi (white racist socialist) movement with Constitutional Conservatives/Libertarians. This seems to be the usual modus operandi in order to introduce "straw men" arguments against patriotic, law-abiding, Constitution loving citizens.

If you will, please allow me to submit short treatise on the "Political Spectrum".

The Left-Right paradigm of politics comes from the British House of Commons, where traditionally the Labor (liberal-progressive) party members sit to the left of the Speaker and Torry (moderately conservative) party sites to his right. This is an incorrect view of politics. The political spectrum is a continuum bounded by the total lack of government (anarchy) on one end and totalitarian government on the other. In today´s world, Somalia would sit at one end (anarchy) and North Korea at the other (totalitarian). Between the center and anarchy, lies Classic Libertarianism. Moving toward the center you would find Constitutional Republicanism, or the United States of 1787-1901. Moving from the center in the other direction, you will find (current) Liberalism, Progressivism, Socialism, Fascism, National Socialism and Communism. National Socialists (Nazis) and International Socialists (Communists) are the two sides of the same coin and neither can be claimed to be representative of patriotic, Constitution-loving Americans.

Right wingers "support ... individual freedoms..." but their "ideology is designed to exclude minorities..."

Huh??

Protection of individual rights against collectivist programs protects every "minority." It is collectivism alone that overrules the rights of any minority.

The SPLC’s Attack on Rush

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

"A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate.

Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey.

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama.
