"FBI warns of threat
from anti-government extremists"
Now that the Regime has
gutted the Constitution and stricken such fundamentals as equal
justice under the law, the writ of habius corpus, the right to
face an accuser in a timely manner and Judicial oversight of
wiretaps and warrants. Even basic protections against
unreasonable searches and seizures have been taken away by this
brash usurper of alien birth and foreign citizenship.
Remember, our President
swore up and down that these laws only apply to foreign enemy
combatants; well HaHaHa, the jokes on America. Welcome to the
new American dictatorship, my friends! To be sure these are
perilous times my Sisters and Brothers in Jesus Christ. Keep
your biblical accounts kept up to date, for you know not when
your soul shall be required of you! Come Lord Jesus!
FBI warns of threat from anti-government extremists
(Reuters) - Anti-government extremists opposed to taxes and
regulations pose a growing threat to local law enforcement
officers in the United States, the FBI warned on Monday.
These extremists, sometimes known as "sovereign citizens,"
believe they can live outside any type of government authority,
FBI agents said at a news conference.
The extremists may refuse to pay taxes, defy government
environmental regulations and believe the United States went
bankrupt by going off the gold standard.
Routine encounters with police can turn violent "at the drop of
a hat," said Stuart McArthur, deputy assistant director in the
FBI's counterterrorism division.
"We thought it was important to increase the visibility of the
threat with state and local law enforcement," he said.
In May 2010, two West Memphis, Arkansas, police officers were
shot and killed in an argument that developed after they pulled
over a "sovereign citizen" in traffic.
Last year, an extremist in Texas opened fire on a police officer
during a traffic stop. The officer was not hit.
Legal convictions of such extremists, mostly for white-collar
crimes such as fraud, have increased from 10 in 2009 to 18 each
in 2010 and 2011, FBI agents said.
"We are being inundated right now with requests for training
from state and local law enforcement on sovereign-related
matters," said Casey Carty, an FBI supervisory special agent.
FBI agents said they do not have a tally of people who consider
themselves "sovereign citizens."
J.J. MacNab, a former tax and insurance expert who is an analyst
covering the sovereign movement, has estimated that it has about
Sovereign members often express particular outrage at tax
collection, putting Internal Revenue Service employees at risk.
