Where the people fear the government you have tyranny. Where the government fears the people you have liberty.–John Basil Barnhill, 1914 (not Thomas Jefferson)
24 “violent” sovereign citizen-related attacks across the U.S. since 2010.
(oh my, oh no, my God–focus our resources here, please save us from those who dissent. Let them protest in the free speech zones so designated by our beneficent government and protector of our individual rights!)
6,022 black on black murders in 2011
Nationwide, the black homicide victimization rate in 2011 was 17.51 per 100,000. The overall national homicide victimization rate was 4.44 per 100,000, and among white Americans, the homicide victimization rate was 2.64 per 100,000.
After the announcement that NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo would not be indicted for killing Eric Garner, the NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund Twitter posted a series of tweets naming 76 men and women who were killed in police custody since the 1999 death of Amadou Diallo in New York. Starting with the most recent death, what follows are more detailed accounts of many of those included in the Legal Defense Fund’s tweets.
A Freedom of Information request to the UK Office for National Statistics revealed that more than a thousand hospital patients had starved to death in four years and for every person who died this way another four had ‘dehydration’ on their death certificates. The number of patients leaving hospital suffering from malnutrition had doubled to 5,558.
Each year approximately 2.2 million US hospital patients experience adverse drug reactions (ADRs) to prescribed medications. In 1995, Dr. Richard Besser of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections to be 20 million; in 2003, Dr. Besser spoke in terms of tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually.
Approximately 7.5 million unnecessary medical and surgical procedures are performed annually in the US, while approximately 8.9 million Americans are hospitalized unnecessarily [But think of the profits] … … the estimated total number of iatrogenic deaths – that is, deaths induced inadvertently by a physician or surgeon or by medical treatment or diagnostic procedures – in the US annually is 783,936. It is evident that the American medical system is itself the leading cause of death and injury in the US. By comparison, approximately 699,697 Americans died of heart disease in 2001, while 553,251 died of cancer.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is as socialist/progressive/fascist as they come and true to form they produced a study that focuses on the risks of Sovereign Citizens groups being a major terrorist threat that the government must focus more resources upon. Unfortunately, the power elite’s protective security force, the DHS seems always too eager to destroy all forms of dissent in America, from Occupy Wall Street to Patriot organizations such as Sovereign Citizens and groups like the Oath Keepers, but seem rather complacent about the very real and far more systemic risks to America and American lives from the Obama led influx of Arab Muslims who are about to invade our shores from nations we have helped to destroy.
And let us not forget, though the media has emptied our national consciousness of this issue as both sides of the aisle have coalesced around the need for amnesty, the renewed influx of illegal aliens from south of the border whose predecessors have already made a strong criminal impression on the American citizenry. Despite the election, if you think we live in a democracy, we have not truly for close to a 100 years. It was inevitable that the political pressures from a large and vocal voting block, in combination with the massive corporate backing for cheap labor and the expansion of a system of peonage and servitude, would rule in the end. Certainly makes a great deal of sense does it not?
The risk of death to an American just from going to a hospital are massively greater than the risk of death or injury from a “right-wing” patriot or from any domestic American protesting the destruction of our national heritage and freedoms. Freedoms that countless men and women died to defend since 1776. Protesting against the coercive police state and the corporatist fascist government that grows more tyrannical with each passing day, even if peacefully conducted, is a hazard to property and life in the new America. The full force of the massively bloated Department of Homeland (I still cringe when I see this word) Security is now focused on a group of men and women that supposedly generated 24, yes 24, “violent” incidents in the past 4 years.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, over 160 people, mostly children — were killed by falling TVs!! Since 2000, more than 320 children have died that way. More startling stats: 18,000 people are injured by falling sets every year; three children are injured by a tipped-over TV every hour; and one child is killed every two weeks. The DHS will very likely soon focus their unaccountable might by breaking in the doors of home owners suspected of having TV’s that may be precariously positioned, or even perhaps too large for a family with children. Not really a joke. But then again, these deaths and injuries are not driven by the spurious arguments that the right to bear arms is Constitutionally guaranteed, nor that there are individuals out there who truly wish to remain as free from government tyranny as they possibly can for to disagree with the government is soon to be a crime, in and of itself.
This is insanity and yet, the American people are fed this insidious propaganda about the risks from domestic white, patriotic, anti-government groups from the mainstream media without question, despite the distrust of the 4th estate that they register with the pollsters. When the lies have become so ubiquitous and the machinery of State persistently sounds the alarm, the American lobotomized zombies dance to the lie with gusto.
We, as a nation are doomed. Like the FBI report on the governments unexecuted plan to use snipers against the Occupy WS movement that, despite Freedom of Information requests will never see the light of day, our government will not, absolutely will not, tolerate dissent.
It is very reasonable for anyone left out there with half a brain to be expecting a false flag domestic terror event in the not too distant future. But then again, Islam is a religion of peace, Muslims do not kill for religious regions. These murderers are just deranged human beings who kill for the sheer pleasure. But then again, how is that guns kill in America and not people?
Washington (CNN)They’re carrying out sporadic terror attacks on police, have threatened attacks on government buildings and reject government authority.
A new intelligence assessment, circulated by the Department of Homeland Security this month and reviewed by CNN, focuses on the domestic terror threat from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists and comes as the Obama administration holds a White House conference to focus efforts to fight violent extremism.
Some federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to — and in some cases greater than — the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.
The Homeland Security report, produced in coordination with the FBI, counts 24 violent sovereign citizen-related attacks across the U.S. since 2010.
As the White House prepares to host a major summit this week examining the threat of violent extremism, a Southern Poverty Law Center study of domestic terrorism released last week finds that the vast majority of this violence is coming from “lone wolves” or “leaderless resistance” groups composed of no more than two people.
The report — Age of the Wolf: A Study of the Rise of Lone Wolf and Leaderless Resistance Terrorism — examines more than sixty domestic terror incidents. Almost three-quarters of the incidents were carried out, or planned, by a lone wolf, a single person acting without accomplices. Ninety percent of the incidents were the work of no more than two persons.
The study, which included violence from both the radical right and homegrown jihadists, also found that a domestic terrorist attack or foiled attack occurred, on average, every thirty-four days. An SPLC release reports that the study covered a period between 1 April 2009 and 1 February 2015, and was based on records maintained by Indiana State University and the University of Maryland’s Global Terrorism Database, along with the SPLC’s own roster of apparent domestic terror incidents.
“Our study clearly shows the urgent need for federal agencies to reinvigorate their work studying and analyzing the radical right,” said Mark Potok, SPLC senior fellow and editor of the report. “And it’s important to recognize the trend away from organized groups committing acts of domestic terror. As Timothy McVeigh demonstrated with the Oklahoma City bombing, lone wolves and small cells of domestic terrorists can create massive carnage.”
