New job at the Dept. of Justice targets 'extremists'

The leftist advance never stops.  With more than a year left in office, Obama leads the charge with a steady stream of edicts that crush liberty – that crush the essence of America.  Here’s the latest slice of evil he plans to inflict upon this nation.  World Net Daily (WND) reports:

A new position within the Justice Department – yet to be filled – will focus on investigating lone-wolf domestic terrorists or “extremists.”

The person who heads this new effort will target extremists who plan mass shootings, hold racist, bigoted or anti-government views or see themselves as “sovereign citizens.”

The new position at the Justice Department, dubbed the “domestic terrorism counsel,” will serve as the main point of contact for U.S. attorney offices nationwide and will identify trends across cases, help shape strategy and “analyze legal gaps that need to be closed,” said Assistant Attorney General John Carlin.

It is not clear what Carlin meant by that statement.

 “The legal gaps are probably laws that need to be changed,” said John Whitehead, founder of the Rutherford Institute and a longtime constitutional attorney.

“I’m sure it’s gun laws,” said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, another watchdog agency.

Do you see where this is going?  One has to do a mental double-take to absorb what is unfolding.  It is beyond surreal.  And no elected officials I’m aware of are trying to stop this wholesale destruction of our nation.

Whitehead, author of “Battlefield America: The War on the American People,” said he believes the new czar over homegrown violent extremism will work in tandem with the Strong Cities Network announced late last month at the United Nations.

“It’s going to be coordinated somehow with the Strong Cities Network. What you’re going to see is, they’re going to federalize police across the country,” said Whitehead. “They’re already doing it. Ten federal agents have recently moved in to the Oakland Police Department, and they study social media, create algorithms, studying and creating profiles.”

As the Obama administration comes down to its final months in office, look for more brazen, racially charged steps that target law-abiding American citizens who express political views that don’t line up with those of the administration, Fitton said.

“This is going to become the vehicle through which the Justice Department can target those who oppose the Obama agenda,” he said. “This is a solution in search of a problem.”

We will have a federalized police force using profiles to go after American citizens who oppose Obama.  Please tell me what shred of free speech will remain when this man is through?  We are officially beyond Orwellian.

“The government will be defining what extremism is. I’m going to write a letter to the Justice Department and ask them, ‘Can you please define it right now?’ Congress should already be asking this. Do we want to go back to those 2009 memos under Janet Napolitano where returning vets and anti-abortion activists were named as potential extremists to be watched?” he asked, referring to Obama’s former secretary of homeland security.

“So what Americans are facing here, these are bureaucrats making rules,” Whitehead said. “Congress is not voting on it. There is no representative government going on here. This is autocratic rule by oligarchy.”

Based on President Obama’s comments and the actions of his administration, Whitehead said he can only guess who will get slapped with the “extremist” label. It won’t be Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, who recently implored his followers to “stalk and kill” those white cops who have killed black suspects.

Of course there will be a world-is-upside-down standard.  In fact, isn’t the point to target conservatives who oppose the leftist agenda while ignoring (at best) those who openly incite violence against police officers and others?

“Anybody with a gun now, in my opinion, is an extremist, at least as viewed by this government,” Whitehead said. “You’re going to be watched. Be careful what you say on Facebook. The wrong kind of joke will put you on the extremist list, because the government agents – I will tell you this – they do not have a sense of humor.”

Whitehead said Google’s latest multi-million dollar contract from the National Security Agency is telling. Facebook is also used by the government.

“Everything is shared. There’s nothing that disappears. Everything goes into the cloud. The police agencies will say they only keep data for a year or six months, but it’s always there,” he said.

He said Obama has pumped more than $100 million into the federal “smart cities” program, which will be run by advanced fusion centers or real-time crime centers.

“Once you enter a smart city, all your data will be downloaded from your cell phone without you knowing it. Facial recognition software-scanners will scan your face,” he said. “The big corporations all want this, and some banks are starting to use that already. So everything about you will be known. There will be no privacy left. You add to that drones and what they can do. Man, we live in an algorithm universe. We’re all data bits now.”

The boom is being lowered.  And our commitment to freedom is being tested like never before.  Who among us will be as brave as Kim Davis?

Whitehead said the Strong Cities Network, which was announced by Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the United Nations on Sept. 30, will play a pivotal role but it will be subtle.

“They’re not stupid enough to dress up U.N. police in blue helmets. They’ll use local police,” he said. “The U.N. officials will move into the fusion centers and run it through Strong Cities Network. This is one big program you’re looking at, very large.”

If you want to see the future of law enforcement, watch the film “Minority Report,” a drama about “pre-crime” fighting police engaged 24/7 with a population addicted to social media and the Internet, Whitehead said.

“They’re already saying ‘we’re going against violent extremists,’ but who are they?” Whitehead said. “Well automatically under the Obama administration you are an extremist if you own a gun.

The ultimate goal of the NSA is “total population control,” according to William Binney, the highest-level whistleblower to ever come out of the NSA. Binney, one of the agency’s leading code-breakers during the Cold War, made this statement at a conference in London in July 2014. He left the NSA after Sept. 11, 2001, when he became disgusted with the NSA’s targeting of Americans instead of foreign enemies and he said the NSA “lies about what it stores,” the Guardian reported.

“Total population control.”

And not to make a distressing (understatement) situation worse, but this is also a relevant component to all of this that is worthy of note.  Infowars reports (link to Matt Drudge full interview, here; excerpt, here):

During an appearance on the Alex Jones Show, Drudge asserted that copyright laws which prevent websites from even linking to news stories were being advanced.

“I had a Supreme Court Justice tell me it’s over for me,” said Drudge. “They’ve got the votes now to enforce copyright law, you’re out of there. They’re going to make it so you can’t even use headlines.”

“To have a Supreme Court Justice say to me it’s over, they’ve got the votes, which means time is limited,” he added, noting that a day was coming when simply operating an independent website could be outlawed.

“That will end (it) for me – fine – I’ve had a hell of a run,” said Drudge, adding that web users were being pushed into the cyber “ghettos” of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. (snip)

“I’m just warning this country that yes, don’t get into this false sense that you are an individual when you’re on Facebook, no you’re not, you’re a pawn in their scheme,” concluded Drudge.

And what a “scheme” it is.
