FBI Attempts to Make 'Libertarians' the Poster Children for Domestic Extremism

Anthony Freda Art

As the definition of a domestic extremist continues to expand to include activists for peace, animal rights, currency, natural health, liberty and other noble causes, the FBI is ready to make an example out of one group in particular: Libertarians.

The FBI held a press conference Monday to "increase the visibility of the threat" that people who oppose taxes and regulations, government intrusions into their private property, and the desire for sound money allegedly pose to local authorities.

Although the FBI vaguely attempts to label this group as "sometimes known as 'sovereign citizens'", the description sounds an awful lot like me, and millions of other liberty-minded people in America that don't associate with any group.

They also sound like Ron Paul supporters.

According to 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.

Notice the resolute use of the word "extremists" but the vague description "sometimes known as sovereign citizens."  Yet the description that these "extremists may refuse to pay taxes and defy government environmental regulations" sounds more like General Electric than average liberty activists who the FBI clearly seems hellbent on demonizing.

Additionally, the official mission for Sovereign Citizens is to "Protect Property Rights and American Civil Liberties."  As fierce protectors of property rights, they take environmental damage quite seriously.  Many would argue that an environmental policy governed by property rights is far more effective than the bloated EPA which is wholly owned by corporate polluters.

"Sovereign members often express particular outrage at tax collection, putting Internal Revenue Service employees at risk," Reuters assumes.  Yet, choosing not to pay taxes is by definition a form of non-violent civil disobedience.  And no credible threats against individual IRS agents were cited.

Opposing taxes only seems dangerous to those who wish to perpetuate this prison society.  I would even suggest that it's far more dangerous to continue to fund an organization who wages murderous wars abroad based on lies, who builds a militarized police state at home, who removes all individual liberty in the name of safety, and who bails out criminal cartels while the innocent suffer.  The real extremists would seem to be the ones who support such a blood-thirsty organization, not the people who oppose its wicked ways.

But the FBI does their best to convince us that that sovereign citizens are dangerous extremists by warning us they can turn violent "at the drop of a hat," as Stuart McArthur, assistant director in the FBI's counterterrorism division, said at the press conference.

As evidence, McArthur refers to one incident where two men claiming to be Sovereign Citizens killed two Arkansas policemen after an argument.  Because this isolated and highly suspect incident is hardly worthy of labeling an entire philosophical group as violent, McArthur desperately tries to dignify the reason for the FBI's alert with other, even more vague examples:
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.
Eighteen "such extremists" convicted of white collar fraud! That's all you can produce with an $8 billion FBI budget?  And you wonder why people think their taxes may be better spent elsewhere?

The FBI and the Reuter's reporter must have forgotten to check the Sovereign Citizens' own website to see their very clear statement in complete disagreement to all allegations made in this article:
We do NOT endorse non-payment of taxes or violence to achieve these changes. We do NOT endorse giving up a social security number and we do NOT endorse violence against the police or the government.
But recently, the feds somehow excused the use of a domestic drone of all things in the arrest of farmers accused of stealing a handful of cattle because the farmers were said to be Sovereign Citizens.

It appears the federal government is trying to make an enemy out of non-violent activists, especially liberty activists.  Imagine, people concerned with peace and liberty are the enemy of the FBI.  What's the opposite of peace and liberty?  War and tyranny.  Which side are you on?

I recently quite by accident discovered Mae Brussells who upon learning of JFK's assisination purchased the Warren Report. She connected all the dots...much like today the same players have had their hands in all the major horrible events.
Then listen to LBJ's mistresses confession of what she knew.
This is the same play over and over. If AMERICANS do not stop this then we are all doomed. Look at your children, your nieces your nephews, hell look at the children around you...look at humanity.
It is time to protest like an Egyptian...time to rise.

The FBI is allegedly responsible for heightened involvement in the false flag attack at Oklahoma City, for destroying evidence from 911, for virtually providing the roadmap and means for virtually every recently solved false flag terror attack (by entrapping cognitively impaired/retarded youths with Arabic sounding last names to engage in various incompletely hatched ineffectual plots).
What is it about libertarians (who merely wish to be left alone from these criminals) that makes them extremist?
I guess these libertarians just won't go along with the criminality any longer.

We are seeing 'echoes' or a repeat of the 1930s...economic meltdown; warmongering from an authoritarian government; a supposed-dangerous racial enemy (for Jews now read Muslims); and even a revival of the eugenics movement.
The picture may have changed but the pieces of the puzzle have been cut to the same pattern.

**These extremists, sometimes known as 'sovereign citizens,' believe they can live outside any type of government authority, FBI agents said at a news conference.**

I guess the FBI would consider me a part of this domestic terrorist movement because I've used the term myself, as in the citizen is supposed to be the sovereign in our system. Not the National Security State. Not the corporate individuals who are above the law. Not the legalized bribery political system. The US government supposedly exists to serve its citizens. If this has become terrorism we are deep doodoo.

Worth adding for the FBI that note the two words, "sovereign" and "citizen." Someone who sees themselves as a citizen is, by definition, not saying they are outside government. I'd say they want the CORRUPTION stopped.

The U.S. of Hollow

Junior demons litter the culture,
sucking up all that’s left.
The Elder knew how to pick em’
The Boy claimed no such heft.
Picked apart and long picked over,
our bird of Giving Thanks.
America, finally laid to rest,
by her own traitorous Yanks.
Liberty & Freedom,
need no such plan to follow.
Bleeding slowly across our land,
The United States of Hollow.

The problem is the fed. gov., however the puritans warned us, this day will come which is why the phrase (these were liberties we gave to ourselves) are in the constitutional makeup of our nations creed, we understood that roman catholics outnumbered us & more importantly, they will oppose us on every issue after we shared our booty (The U.S)with them. there can be no justice in the U.s until the gov., admits that we own them & that aint gonna happen, currently everyone has more rights & receives more svcs., from our gov., than protestants & the fed., & state gov., is supporting them so they (the gov.) can gain control of us so let the jews, muslims & roman catholics pay thru their collective asses for our protestant nation & ideology, by the way they still won"t get it because America is a protestant christian nation & &we threw the gov., in jail @ the foundation of the nation, check us out, we are the baddest people on the planet, no religous, social or political institution has ever produced documents like the constitution, the bill of rights or the declaration of independence, whats makes America succesful is christianity & capitalism not capitalism & democracy,& the christianity belongs exclusivly to protestants, capitalism & democracy without christianity is the old feudilism from Europe.

If I were to advocate the murder of someone or a group of people, I could be arrested, could I not, for encouraging, enticing or suggesting someone to commit a crime?

How is it that Rick Samtorum, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney get away with advocating murdering countless folks in Iran and they are not behind bars for so doing?

The FBI's job is not to stop crime, but to promote a political agenda and to empower the 1%. It is like the SS and every Amerikan needs to awaken to that notion.

The REAL terrorists are the Bushs, Clintons and Obamas of the world and their masters.

Doublespeak is language which pretends to communicate but doesn't. It is language which makes the bad seem good, the negative seem positive, the unpleasant seem unattractive, or at least tolerable. It is language which avoids, shifts or denies responsibility; language which is at variance with its real or purported meaning. It is language which conceals or prevents thought. It is the language spoken by America's authoritarians.

Politicians have gone awry with ego directed beliefs that they are to arrogate to themselves the right to create and enforce new laws,rules,regulations,that assure their continued positions of what was intended to be temporary representation of the People but has dwindled from original purpose to stances of greed and self promotions.

Only a removal of every pol and replacement with people from local communities across America who have been tested by their neighbors in positions vitally necessary for maintaining the stability of the daily functioning of the Nation while transitioning to a cleaner smaller smoothly functioning governing process can stop this corruption.

The way to do this is to elect Ron Paul as President to lead us to clean up and rebuild America.

The Kingdom of Satan (aka the "power-elite", the "1%","global organized crime syndicate", the "bankster-gangsters") are being exposed and receiving their own karma back upon themselves to their own destruction.
The time for an honest, wise, intelligent and courageous man, Ron Paul, to be elected to office is NOW! He knows that enforcing the constitutional laws and repealing the unconstitutional laws will put the criminal bankster-gangsters out of business and behind bars.
Google "The Bible and Ron Paul"-13 videos to see how Ron Paul supports God's Laws and the constitution. A nation obeying God's Laws will be blessed and prospered. Ron Paul has a 100% constitutional voting record.
If our government had not been corrupted by criminals in congress enacting unconstitutional laws, Americans would be so wealthy that health care would not be a problem at all.
Thomas Jefferson said, "If the American people ever allow a central bank (Federal Reserve) to control their money, their children would wake up homeless on the land that their forefathers conquered". Ron Paul wants to ABOLISH THE FEDERAL RESERVE.
Meyer Rotheschild, original founder of the global bankster-gangsters, said, "Give me control over a nation's money and I don't care who makes its laws". The Federal Reserve Act was passed by the bankster-gangster's puppets in congress while the honest congressional members were home on Christmas vacation.
The illegal and criminal, NONgovernmental, UNconstitutional IRS, the collection, extortion agency for the bankster-gangsters is, along with the Federal Reserve, running, plundering and destroying America. Ron Paul wants to ABOLISH THE IRS.
Please, wake up and wise up those around you to the well hidden truths. The bankster-gangsters own the mainstream media so that no one hears the truths that are so vital to the survival of America. Pray for the Judgment of Almighty God upon the Kingdom of Satan to return all their own evil deeds back upon them as their judgment.

This is more in response to your claim that property rights would make for better environmentalism than government agencies. Ignoring the planet-wide effects of man-made climate change (as you do for some reason) exactly how would one go after the corporations dumping waste in a river or ocean? Are you going to take them to court? You're case will be dismissed before it's even heard. I'm not sure where libertarians get this golden view of people and the world we live in, but you cannot go against a multi-billion dollar trans-national corporation by yourself. The point of collectivism is to enable collective action through pooled resources.

And yours assertion that "the best and healthiest options" will rise to the top in a free market is even more absurd. Those flounder through the economics of scale and an apathetic, penny-pinching public.

Yes there are things that need to be changed in the world, but government is the only one we actually have even nominal control over. Don't get rid of the only course of action we have for fighting the hands that feed us bullshit.

let's find the unity of "Tea Party", "Occupy", "Sovereign Citizens", all true conservatives of the great liberal tradition that gave birth to this Democratic Republic. RON PAUL is one sane, intelligent man speaking truth to power. i will vote for him on any ticket he runs on. to hell w/ the corporatocracy - to hell with the republocrats and demoblicans who are 2 sides of one coin - the one that buys us into slavery!

@gene1o: yes!, i am with you, the common ground is a vast ocean...
Ron Paul is our one hope around which to coalesce;
so many still to be convinced, so little time,
we must all keep on trying! it is an exponential reality railing against a powerful machine...

If they repeat it over and over, then eventually the words change in meaning.

First, they came for the Libertarians.....but I said nothing. When will "they" come after you? The squeaky wheel gets the grease.....I suppose!

You have to understand that the left wants a communist revolution. And the Globalist's want to trade out Federal Agencies like the FBI for Interpol.

The FBI is directly in their way. So they plan on getting us to get rid of the FBI. They infect the FBI with psychopaths to make the FBI seem like a bunch of tyrannical, incompetent morons(bring the FBI down while raising Interpol up). So they can later push for it to be dismantled.
