In August, Brian Loftus, commercial fisherman and member of Oathkeepers, was harassed by local police for purchasing “a few boxes of ammunition.”
The local shop keeper contacted the police because he was concerned Loftus “wasn’t going to do something crazy” with the ammunition. Without probable cause, police checked his criminal background – finding no further cause for questioning, however, they continued to question Loftus as to why he purchased the ammunition.
As things are progressing in the country, this is becoming more prevalent and as someone who has swore an oath to defend the Constitution like I have and these officers have, they have to wonder how many people are they gonna call? Are they gonna call their brother in law next time he goes to buy some ammunition or their brother or sister or son – where does it end?
The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force have indicated to owners of gun shops and gun ranges the US government’s new definitions of domestic terrorist that coincide with their demonization of US veterans and propaganda claims that domestic terrorists are more of a threat than their manufactured insurgent groups like al-Qaeda and the Free Syrian Army.
Last month, John Whitehead, constitutional attorney for former US Marine Brandon Raub, told Glenn Beck in an interview that veterans all over the country have been disappearing.
Whitehead says that he is receiving correspondence from people across America that report that US veterans are being detained in psychiatric hospitals for speaking out against the US government. Back in January of this year, Whitehead pointed out that the US government, under directives of Obama, has labeled constitutionalists as terrorists with the signing of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that “would allow the military to show up at your door if you’re a ‘potential terrorist,’ and “put you in military detention where seeing a lawyer is difficult.”
Just as Raub was forcibly detained in a mental ward, another veteran has been taken without charge or criminal activity. His firearms were confiscated and he was given a court date.
In central Ohio, another US veteran was involuntarily detained in a VA psychiatric hospital. His guns were confiscated “for the safety of the defendant and the general public,” according to a warrant supplied by the Ohio Sheriff’s office.
The warrant also stated:
The person is under adjudication of mental incompetence, has been adjudicated as a mental defective, has been committed to a mental institution, has been found by a court to be a mentally ill person subject to hospitalization by court order, or is an involuntary patient other than one who is a patient only for purposes of observation. As used in this division, ‘mentally ill person subject to hospitalization by court order’ and ‘patient’ have the same meanings as in section 5122.01 of the Revised Code.
Earlier this year, Federal Court Judge Katherine Forrest ordered that the US military could not arbitrarily imprison Americans based on alleged terrorist activity in regard to the indefinite detention clause in the NDAA. While Obama’s lawyers are trying to fight this decision, there is also a more subversive plan to commit veterans to mental hospitals because this is not illegal.
In Phoenix, Arizona, Quartzite Chief of Police Jeff Gilbert labeled the Oathkeepers and Sons of Liberty organizations as “terrorists”. Gilbert elaborated:
I take these terrorist threats very seriously and I have reported them to the FBI and anyone else who will listen.
Back in 2011, Vice President Joe Biden accused the Tea Party of having “acted like terrorists” asserting that “we have negotiated with terrorists. This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.” This comment came on the heels of assertions that talking to representatives affiliated with the Tea Party are liken to discussing buracracy with Republicans with “guns to their heads” referencing that the Tea Party wielded violent authority of the political party.
In 2009, the Office of Intelligence and Analysis published a report entitled Rightwing Extremism,wherein US veterans become domestic extremists, particularly white supremacists, who are proposed to be the newest and most dangerous threat to the US since al-Qaeda.
The DHS admitted that they had “no specific information that domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, but rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment.”
The DHS wanted to instill the idea that veterans were being recruited to become “right-wing extremists” upon returned from Iraq and Afghanistan.
Janet Napolitano intimated that military veterans could become instruments of domestic terror. When Napolitano’s comments were met with public distain, the DHS amended their assertion that extremist groups were highly-marked; but rather it was a lone wolf type that would carry out the biggest act of domestic terrorism. Still the seed had been planted in the social meme that US veterans were turning on America and becoming a threat to continuity of government.
The US Armed Forces have announced wars within its ranks as they claim white supremacists are joining the military to infiltrate and overthrow what is referred to as the Zionist Occupation Government (ZOG).
The purveying scheme includes a secret infiltration of racists who are expressly trying to divide the US military. However, the controllers of this concept are the FBI-sponsored Southern Poverty Law (SPLC) Center and Anti-Defamation League (ADL) who are working with the military to train soldiers on how to spot extremists in their ranks. This is the military’s answer to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) See Something, Say Something campaign to create Stasi out of ordinary citizens.
In Manchester, New York, the Traffic Services Unit of the police department is attempting to recruit ordinary citizens to observe traffic violations by sitting in designated areas and reporting their findings to the local police department.
In Ludowici, Georgia, Army soldiers were arrested; charged with the murders of a cohort and his girlfriend to supposedly “protect an anarchist militia group they formed that stockpiled assault weapons and plotted a range of anti-government attacks.”
From the Fort Stewart Army post, this alleged militia group called Forever Enduring Always Ready (FEAR) comprised of “active and former U.S. military members spent at least $87,000 buying guns and bomb components” has an unknown amount of members who are organizing to target “soldiers who were in trouble or disillusioned” according to prosecutor Isabel Pauley.
The inclusion of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) is not arbitrary. In conjunction with the manufactured threat our US veterans pose, they are being tied to IEDs to add to the mix the threat of a false flag explosion that can be later attributed to the actions of either an active duty solider or a US veteran.
