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.

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.

If you do a quick Internet search for "Gwyneth Paltrow," you´ll find an onslaught of furious comments about the actress. Alhough the 41-year-old often stirs up controversy (thanks to everything from her touting her own wood-burning pizza oven to referring to her recent breakup as a "conscious uncoupling"), this latest reaction is due, in part, to a New York Post open letter to Paltrow regarding an interview she gave on the challenges of being a movie-star mom. On Wednesday, Paltrow, who announced her split from husband Chris Martin this week, told E! News, “I think it´s different when you have an

Earlier this week Bill O’Reilly called Democratic congresswoman Barbara Lee a “race hustler” and Lee shot back at O’Reilly’s “disgusting and divisive” language. On Friday night O’Reilly stood by his words and called Lee both a “pinhead” and a “liar” in response. O’Reilly mocked Lee’s insinuation on MSNBC that on the right, “we all use phrases that denigrate African-Americans.” He went through a list of examples he believes bolsters his “race hustler” charge and said, “How about pinhead, congresswoman? You like that better?” O’Reilly condemned Lee for “flat-out calling people with whom she disagrees racist” and then having “the gall, the nerve”

Having done his darndest in The Hague, Barack Obama is taking his “cast of 100s” caravan to the sands of the Saudis. Riyadh may seem a strange place to end a European tour, but Mr. Obama often does the unexpected. What he does not do when travelling, however, is deal directly with the really bad stuff. Even at The Hague, as tens of thousands of Russian troops massed on Ukraine’s border, he sought to divert attention from the calamity on Europe’s frontier. Instead, he asserted that Russia’s aggression was a sign of weakness, and Moscow would sooner or later come to

New allegations are raising additional questions about former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell´s involvement in crafting the administration´s flawed narrative on the Benghazi attack, ahead of his scheduled testimony next week on Capitol Hill. Morell is set to testify publicly for the first time on Wednesday about his role in crafting the controversial Benghazi "talking points," which initially blamed a protest for the deadly attack. The former acting director, and deputy director, was called to testify to explain potentially conflicting testimony he gave Congress about the talking points and the administration´s role.

The Kroger grocery store chain "is in the process of transitioning to unarmed security guards across the company." According to 10TV in Columbus, Ohio, "Kroger said armed guards will remain in some of its locations," but it is not saying where. U.S. Protection Service is the company that provides security for Kroger. The service recently sent a letter to its employees informing them that "effective March 29, its guards will be ´completely unarmed – no weapons, no handcuffs, no chemical repellant, no baton, etc.´" The letter adds that the company views the decision as "very disheartening." 10TV interviewed shoppers in the Columbus area who

White House takes step toward

The White House took steps Friday toward issuing methane emissions regulations at hydraulic fracturing sites, a move that would slash greenhouse gas emissions in hopes of meeting President Obama´s climate goals but will invite backlash from industry. The news is a victory for environmental groups, which note that methane -- a short-lived, potent greenhouse gas that has a 20 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide -- is the largest remaining unregulated greenhouse gas, accounting for 9 percent of U.S. emissions. The oil and gas industry, however, has warned that regulating methane emissions would stunt domestic energy production by raising

A widely-held notion on the left holds that Republicans and conservatives just “love” Russian President Vladimir Putin. Groups like Media Matters for America hold up conservative commentators like Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as examples of this phenomenon, but Media Matters is confusing making unfavorable comparisons between Putin and President Barack Obama for admiration for Putin. But now the left, which has been eager for weeks to claim that the GOP is deeply enamored with the revanchist president of an expansionist Russia, now has a real champion for Putin’s aggression in Europe: Rep.

Gun Control Groups Fear Sen.
Yee´s Indictment Will Make Gun
Control More Difficult to Pass
Breitbart´s Big Government, by AWR Hawkins    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/28/2014 4:04:52 PM     Post Reply
Gun control groups working to push further gun control in California worry that state senator Leland Yee´s indictment on arms trafficking "may slow the legislature´s consideration of gun restrictions this year." According to AP California News, on March 27 organizers of more legislation said "the charges filed against...Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco, could cloud the future of two of his gun control bills." As Breitbart News reported on March 26, Yee supported an "assault weapons" ban in California and a requirement for background checks for ammunition purchases. He also co-sponsored an expansion of "the list of crimes that disqualify an individual

Joining a long line of Democrats distancing themselves from Obamacare, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel hinted that he didn´t support the President´s original plans for the healthcare take over and advised the President to take a different approach, though he shied from saying just what that meant. In a March 27 interview on cable business network CNBC, Emanuel claimed that he offered the President a "contrary opinion" on Obamacare but his advice was not heeded. "He asked for my opinion," Emanuel said during an interview on CNBC´s Squawk Box. "I gave it to him and why I thought we should do

Following several years of "constructive dialog" with the LGBT community, the U.S. Justice Department is now training law enforcement officers on how to better understand and help the "transgender community." "It’s clear that such training is as necessary as it is overdue," Associate Attorney General Tony West told a gathering at the Justice Department on Thursday, as DOJ´s Community Relations Service kicked off its new "transgender law enforcement cultural professionalism training." The training will help law enforcement agencies "improve their understanding of the transgender communities they serve and improve their work with those communities," said Deputy Assistant Attorney General James Cole, who

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors. The medical profession has never before remotely approached today’s stress, work hours, wasted costs, decreased efficiency, and declining ability to focus on patient

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

Please, try not to let what I’m about to tell you destroy your faith in the integrity of the national Democratic Party. Right now, a crime wave is sweeping the nation, and everyone in this out-of-control mob has a D after their names, even if most of the media are loath to report it. If you are a low-information voter, a Globe subscriber, say, you have been told endlessly that the root of all evil in American politics is the Tea Party, better known in your moonbat media as “teabaggers.” Oddly, however, the hacks rounded up over the last few days, well,

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

With studies showing widening economic gaps between whites and African Americans, civil rights leaders in metro Detroit are concerned. “We’re going in the wrong direction,” said Freda Sampson, a leader with the nonprofit group Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion. “We’re getting further and further divided.” To help close that racial and class divide, her group is holding an all-day conference, called the Equity Action Summit, on Saturday at Cobo Center in Detroit. (Snip) Saturday’s conference, supported by the NAACP and Fair Housing Center of Metro Detroit, is to feature talks by President Barack Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript. And it appears that the only "mere scraps" of evidence of baby Barack´s time in Seattle are
