Love the Constitution? Hate government regulations? New DHS “lexicon” brands you a “militia extremist.”

by Patrick Pool

A recently published “lexicon” distributed to thousands of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) targets citizens concerned about their Second Amendment rights and the steady encroachment of the federal government, categorizing such as “militia extremists.”

The “lexicon,” marked Unclassified/For Official Use Only (FOUO), is dated November 10, 2011, and was sent out by email to law enforcement and homeland security agencies on November 14 by LaJuan E. Washington of the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis.

We have exclusively posted the DHS “lexicon” here.

Its definition of “militia extremists” states:

(U//FOUO) Groups or individuals who facilitate or engage in acts of violence directed at federal, state, or local government officials or infrastructure in response to their belief that the government deliberately is stripping Americans of their freedoms and is attempting to establish a totalitarian regime. These individuals consequently oppose many federal and state authorities’ laws and regulations, (particularly those related to firearms ownership), and often belong to armed paramilitary groups. They often conduct paramilitary training designed to violently resist perceived government oppression or to violently overthrow the US Government. (Page 2 of 3, emphasis added)

Secretary Napolitano Meets with State, Local, and Tribal Law Enforcement on Countering Violent Extremism

Get ready for more top down imposition and pressure on our police forces in order to “prevent violent extremism”

As near as I can tell, an “extremist,” in the eyes of this government,  is anyone that takes issue with its policies, actions or aims which means that there is a whole lot of those extremists and more of them are being minted daily.

The best way to prevent “violent extremism” is to ensure that the ordinary, common garden variety  “extremists” are thoroughly monitored and intimidated. In this way they can be completely disabused of their unacceptable ideas, thoughts or philosophies.   This, my friends,  means nothing good for our rights.  Freedom of speech and association, the right to petition our government for redress of grievances, the right to freely travel and more will keep taking the hits under the guise of keeping us safe.

Congress has a 9% approval rating. 

Only Fidel Castro is more unpopular (at least by this chart) than Congress.  Don’t you think it is odd that in the face of this dismal fact they keep on plowing ahead with travesties like the NDAA?  Isn’t it weird that they keep forcing upon us laws that the majority of us are appalled at?  It’s not so weird really.  They can’t possibly hope to win us over with what they are doing.  I think they are banking on controlling us instead.  Mark my words.  Before long it will be a rare American that will be able to avoid the ugly side of Big Momma Gov. hell bent on rooting out thought criminals.

Happy Hunting Homeland Security and good luck in Oklahoma!  Even our cops will look like extremists to you.


Secretary Napolitano Meets with State, Local, and Tribal Law Enforcement on Countering Violent Extremism

Release Date: January 18, 2012

For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
Contact: 202-282-8010

WASHINGTON—Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano today joined Attorney General Eric Holder and Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism John Brennan at the White House to meet with senior state, local and tribal law enforcement officials to discuss the Obama administration’s Strategic Implementation Plan for Empowering Local Partners to Prevent Violent Extremism in the United States—released in December—and engage them on the critical task of preventing violent extremism in their communities. Attendees included sheriffs and chiefs of police from across the country, including representatives from the International Association of Chiefs of Police, Major Cities Chiefs Association, National Sheriffs’ Association, National Native American Law Enforcement Association, Governors Homeland Security Advisors Council, and Criminal Intelligence Coordinating Council.

“Engaging local communities is critical to our nation’s effort to counter violent extremism and violent crime, and this meeting brings together many of our partners,” said Secretary Napolitano. “The Department of Homeland Security will continue to collaborate with our state and local law enforcement partners and engage the public in our efforts to combat violent extremism, while protecting civil rights and civil liberties.”

During the meeting, Secretary Napolitano underscored DHS’ efforts to support local communities by enhancing existing partnerships to focus on information-driven community-based solutions, building government and law enforcement expertise, supporting community oriented policing practices and expanding grant prioritization to counter violent extremism and violent crime regardless of ideology. In addition, DHS is continuing to implement recommendations from the DHS Homeland Security Advisory Council Countering Violent Extremism Working Group, such as developing a curriculum for state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement focused on a community-oriented policing approach to countering violent extremism and violent crime. DHS’ Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties also works to educate communities and state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement on cultural awareness across the nation.

Secretary Napolitano also reiterated President Obama’s call for Congress to take action to prevent layoffs of law enforcement and first responders, and keep our communities safe by passing legislation such as the American Jobs Act. The legislation would provide $5 billion in assistance to states and local communities to create or save thousands of law enforcement and first responder jobs across the country.

Over the past year, DHS has worked with the Department of Justice on the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative (NSI)—an administration effort to train state and local law enforcement to recognize behaviors and indicators related to terrorism, crime and other threats; standardize how those observations are documented and analyzed; and ensure the sharing of those reports with the FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Forces for further investigation.

DHS has also collaborated with federal, state, local, and private sector partners, and the general public, to expand the “If You See Something, Say Something™” campaign. Originally implemented by New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority and now licensed to DHS for a nationwide campaign, the “If You See Something, Say Something™” campaign is a simple and effective program to engage the public to identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to the proper transportation and law enforcement authorities.

DHS will continue to expand the “If You See Something, Say Something™” campaign nationally to ensure America’s businesses, communities, and citizens remain vigilant and play an active role in keeping the country safe.

Fusion Center documents label OKC Bombing investigators as terrorists

Nov. 28, 2011

Are our police forces and Homeland Security apparatus designed to protect us or are they there to protect the government.

I think it is fair to say that no longer are our forces being utilized to defend the life and liberty of Americans.  Now these forces serve to protect the government from the people.  There is a term for this type of policing.  It’s called “High Policing”and the results of this mentality is completely transforming our society into something very ugly and unrecognizable.

High Policing in the Security Control Society

The following article by Andrew Griffin of the Red Dirt Report is about listing those who dare question the government or attempt to find out for themselves what the true story was about an event that left nearly every American feeling like they had the wind knocked out of them as extremists to be watched should disgust us all no matter what you believe about that event.

If you would like to reserve your right to question, to research for yourself the facts, draw your own conclusions and challenge your government, you should care about this story.

This is just one of many examples of law abiding people being intimidated by the post 911 surveillance state. The fact is that we all must always guard jealously our right and ability to question our government if we wish to keep it.

OKLAHOMA CITY – Ten years after 9/11 and 16 years after the Oklahoma City bombing, it appears the federal government continues to view some Americans who embrace their First Amendment rights – press and speech, primarily – as a danger to the State, and as a result they are listing certain investigative websites as extremist and a terroristic threat to the “homeland.”

Beware of Homeland Security Training for Local Law Enforcement, by An Insider

Posted by the SurvivalBlog.com
By James Wesley, Rawles on March 30, 2011 8:28 PM

I’ve been in law enforcement for the past 18 years.  I have attended a variety of training over those years.  During the 1990s, most training I attended was community-oriented, sponsored by local agencies or private companies specializing in police training.  Themes common to training of the past included topics such as Constitutional rights, community partnerships, youth-oriented programs and problem-oriented policing.

During the past several years, I have witnessed a dramatic shift in the focus of law enforcement training.  Law enforcement courses have moved away from a local community focus to a federally dominated model of complete social control.  Most training I have attended over the past two years have been sponsored by Department of Homeland Security (DHS), namely the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

No matter what topic the training session concerns, every DHS sponsored course I have attended over the past few years never fails to branch off into warnings about potential domestic terrorists in the community.  While this may sound like a valid officer and community safety issue, you may be disturbed to learn how our Federal government describes a typical domestic terrorist.

These federal trainers describe the dangers of “extremists” and “militia groups” roaming the community and hiding in plain sight, ready to attack.  Officers are instructed how to recognize these domestic terrorists by their behavior, views and common characteristics.  State data bases are kept to track suspected domestic terrorists and officers are instructed on reporting procedures to state and federal agencies.  The state I work in, like many others, have what is known as a “fusion center” that compiles a watch list of suspicious people.

So how does a person qualify as a potential domestic terrorist?  Based on the training I have attended, here are characteristics that qualify:

  • Expressions of libertarian philosophies (statements, bumper stickers)
  • Second Amendment-oriented views (NRA or gun club membership, holding a CCW permit)
  • Survivalist literature (fictional books such as “Patriots” and “One Second After” are mentioned by name)
  • Self-sufficiency (stockpiling food, ammo, hand tools, medical supplies)
  • Fear of economic collapse (buying gold and barter items)
  • Religious views concerning the book of Revelation (apocalypse, anti-Christ)
  • Expressed fears of Big Brother or big government
  • Homeschooling
  • Declarations of Constitutional rights and civil liberties
  • Belief in a New World Order conspiracy

Not if Pete King gets his way.   He’s a Republican by the way.  It’s hard to tell anymore, isn’t it?

He wants to grant immunity to busy bodies that report you when they think you are acting act weird.

With all of the reports that are sure to pour in since DHS Secretary, Janet Napolitano began her Wal Mart telescreen gig, this bill is bound to be a winner.

Pete might try listening to this expert;

“Director Michael Leiter complained that the NCTC receives ‘literally thousands’ of pieces of intelligence every day. Adding innocuous information about the everyday activities of Americans will only increase this burden on intelligence resources.” link

Instead of this one;  (results yahoo search “Pete King+IACP” first hit)

4:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. – Meet in office with Jim McMahon, the Deputy Executive Director of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and former NYS Director of Homeland Security. Good conversation and cooperation on terrorism. Jim is a terrific guy. LINK

Ahhh!  Second hit is worse!

Press Release of Senator Lautenberg

Police Chiefs Endorse Lautenberg, King Bill To Close ‘Terror Gap’

Lautenberg-King Bill Would Restrict Terrorists’ Access To Guns


WASHINGTON, D.C. – The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) has announced its support for legislation — the Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2007 (S.1237/H.R.2074) — Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Rep. Pete King (R-NY) have introduced to prevent terrorist suspects from purchasing firearms.

JoeFranzese writes;

Republican quislings Peter King of New York, Mark Kirk of Illinois and Mike Castle of Delaware have just introduced a new gun control bill that comes right out of this so-called “Rightwing Extremist” report.  I’m talking about H.R. 2159, the shockingly misnamed “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009.”  I call it the “Disarming American Citizens Act of 2009.” Read more about this awful bill

Does Pete King’s “R” stand for Ridiculous?  I knew I smelled IACP all over this guy.

But back to his current travesty…

Pete goes on and on  about Muslim extremists.  Has he been under a rock for the past few years?  It’s not just the Muslims that are at the other end of the end of the of the snitch state spy glass.  Not to say that it is a good idea to let Wal Mart people get away with ruining anyone’s life by siccing the feds on them for buying too many diapers or taking photographs, Muslim or otherwise.

…This might be a good time to look at who is working on the domestic “extremism” problem before you buy on to this nonsense. (See below)

It might not hurt to take a short trip back to the recent past either and see who the domestic extremists are in the eyes of Homeland Security and their Fusion Centers.

Here are just a couple of examples (there are many, many, more)

DHS: Rightwing Extremism report

lawmaker aims to protect tipsters on extremists

(AFP) – 1 day ago

WASHINGTON — A top US lawmaker unveiled legislation on Wednesday to protect individuals who tip off authorities to potential extremist threats from lawsuits, in the event that they turn out to finger innocents.

House Homeland Security Chairman Pete King introduced the “See Something, Say Something Act” as a shield for those “acting in good faith” and with “objectively reasonable suspicion” that a plot may be unfolding.

“Good citizens who report suspicious activity in good faith, should not have to worry about being sued,” King, a Republican, said in a statement released by his office, citing “frivolous lawsuits” in 2007.

DHS Announces New Initiatives to Counter Violent Extremism in Communities

Six months ago, the Homeland Security Advisory Council’s (HSAC) “Countering Violent Extremism” Working Group–comprised of chiefs of police, sheriffs, community leaders and homeland security experts–made a series of recommendations to the DHS leadership.

HSAC Recommendations

The overarching goal was to incorporate efforts to counter violent extremism into pre-existing, community-oriented violent crime reduction efforts.

There were many great ideas in this report aimed at increasing public awareness of the threat:

– Develop case studies on recent events (Zazi, Ft Hood, Jihad Jane, etc) and use them to train local law enforcement
– Create public service ads to educate public on the threat and how to recognize characteristics of dangerous behavior
– Share threat info and assist with better security practices for faith-based communities
– Create a web sites for parents, caregivers, educators on human trafficking, hate crimes and predators.
– Develop a comment lexicon and definitions for “radicalization”, “extremism”, etc
– More focus on community-oriented policing

Six months later, DHS released the follow on guidance: Next Steps: Supporting Community-Based Efforts to Reduce Violent Crime (dated August 2, 2010)  DHS Fact Sheet
– DHS is developing standardized curriculum for state and local  LE
– Will host regional summits to discuss best practices
– More focus on educating the community on recognizing threats and how to report (expand the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign)
– More partnering with communities and sharing threat info

Testimony tidbit from the MIAC hearings;

Hat Tip to Pissed of Former Democrat‘s  Blogsite

“Anarchists” tried to get protesters to commit crimes

“My group was at the End the Fed rally and there were a bunch of different groups there,” Cisse Spragin told the Missouri House of Representatives on Monday. “And there was this group of anarchists who started talking to us. And then they tried to recruit us or have us join their group. Then they started telling us what should we should write on our signs, and insisting on letting them re-write some of our signs. Later we overheard them saying they couldn’t even get us to jaywalk.”

Spragin’s testimony suggests that the anarchists were attempting to steer the nature of the protests in the opposite direction to guidelines published by End the Fed rally organizers before the protests which called for “Cooperation and respect for local laws and authorities,” and “No blocking of pedestrian or vehicular traffic.”

Missouri Libertarian Party Vice Chair Cisse Spragins will be testifying at a Missouri House of Representatives Interim Committee on State Intelligence Analysis Oversight public hearing August 31st in Grandview, MO.

In March, a “Strategic Report” on “The Modern Militia Movement” written by the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) was leaked to the press.

The memo claimed that membership in, among other groups, the Libertarian Party and/or the display of what it calls “political paraphernalia” in support of the party or its 2008 presidential nominee (former US Congressman Bob Barr) could be an indicator that someone is involved in a “militant militia”.

M.I.A.C. hearing…Linenwood University 7/28/09

. . .When Catherine Bleish took the microphone, the days events shifted into a new gear.  Here was this young atrractive woman, who by all rights “should” be otherwise, and pleasantly engaged.  Instead, she also sat to the microphone armed with sheafs of paper,  She rattled off statistic and instances in a rapid fire, emotional delivery that never lost track of her goals.  She produced internal documents, e-mails, and relayed how she had “worn out her welcome” at the Governor’s office, in an attempt to get information about this report.  I was both inspired, and shamed at how far there is yet to go, to get really “good” at all this.  At one point, Ms. Bleish looked around to see that Mr. Fagen had gone back to his ‘pick pockets’, and she stated that she would love to debate him, anytime, one on one, on all these issues, and I for one, would pay good money to see that.



Comparisons have even been made by one Congressman to domestic terrorists. Congressman Brian Baird (WA-CD3) said, referring to ObamaCare opponents, “Some of the rhetoric that we’re hearing is… eerily reminiscent of the kind of things that drove Tim McVeigh to bomb the federal building in Oklahoma.” Simply stunning.

But again, not without precedent. In fact, some of the rabid rhetoric to which Americans are being subjected—from members of Congress—is eerily reminiscent of a so-called “threat” assessment issued by the Department of Homeland Security back in April.

Remember, this was the same memo that defined “rightwing extremist” as “groups, movements, and adherents… that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority” and “groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

Hmm, kind of like those “Brown Shirts” (to use Brian Baird’s term) descending upon town halls nationwide.

Of course, this is the same memo that has now been discredited. After filing a Freedom of Information Act Request with the Department of Homeland Security into the methodology used, Americans for Limited Government has learned that no intelligence sources were utilized. No crime data or statistics. In short, no evidence of any planned attacks or active recruitment by groups known to have planned attacks.

As ALG President Bill Wilson, yesterday on the Fred Thompson show, explained, “They gave local law enforcement in effect a green light to say, ‘Okay, there’s a pro-gun group,’ or ‘there’s a group that believes in the 10th Amendment’ and, you can now at least watch them and consider them as possible domestic terrorist incubators. Meanwhile, they had no data, they had no analysis. They had nothing but the ranting and raving of lunatics on the left as their ‘back-up.’ It’s worse than political propaganda. It really smacks of Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro-type of things.”



Government, Media, and Police Perceptions of State Intelligence Fusion
by Kevin L. Kobe


The following was written over the course of June 10-13, 2009

JUNE 10, 2009 | Jefferson City, Missouri

The Missouri House of Representatives special committee on state intelligence held its first hearing on the Missouri Information Analysis Center. After the recent actions discussing de-funding MIAC, The change of leadership at MIAC, and the politicians denouncing the Militia Report, we were to believe that the issues were understood and being addressed.

However, This committee hearing has opened my eyes that the Missouri Highway Patrol and members of the state house have no idea why their operations are dangerous and tyrannical. This three hour hearing went forward, beginning with some structural rules, followed by a slide show power point on the operations of the MIAC. This slide show outlined how and when the MIAC was created, the agencies that utilize their services, and some of the cases where MIAC has provided successful information in solving crimes. One thing missing from this power point was the hot button issue of Strategic Reports. The power point was filled with examples of “Cattle Theft Intelligence” and the presentation even included a case where a website moderator contacted law enforcement, who then contacted MIAC, who then contacted Lee’s Summit Police, who then contacted a school to verify a comment on a website where a child expressed concern about the possibility of his school being attacked. The concern turned out not to be an active plot.

One of the first comments that stood out in the minds of the patriots listening, was from Representative Viebrock. He mentioned “A revolutionary war mentality I’m hearing around the state that needs to be watched.” Shortly after, the questions turned to the Strategic Reports, and it seemed that the longer the discussion went on, the less ashamed the officers defending their organization appeared to be in relation to profiling citizens.

First Col. James Keathley was asked if MIAC still issues Strategic Reports. MIAC apparently is not currently issuing these, and they aren’t looking to in the near future, with the current feelings about such reports.

Then the line of questioning turned to future reports. The possibility of future Strategic Reports is not ruled out, but again, are not currently being planned or worked on.


Interim Committee Formed to Study Controversial Report Issued by Missouri Information Analysis Center

Jefferson City, MO – On May 27, 2009, Missouri House Speaker Ron Richard, R-Joplin, announced the creation of an Interim Committee on State Intelligence Analysis Oversight to take a closer look at the origins of a controversial report issued by the Missouri Information Analysis Center. Speaker Richard named Rep. Bob Dixon, R-Springfield, to chair the committee, which has been charged with reviewing procedures for gathering, analyzing and distributing information to law enforcement agencies.

“Representative Dixon has been vocal in expressing his concerns about the report issued by MIAC and he is one of the driving forces behind the creation of this committee. I believe he is the ideal choice to lead our efforts as we work to ensure there is an adequate level of oversight for MIAC and the reports they produce,” said Speaker Richard.

The controversy surrounding MIAC began in February when a report issued by the center linked supporters of third-party candidates and conservative causes to militias. Because of the controversial report, questions arose regarding the methods used by MIAC to compile reports and the amount of oversight involved in the process. Lingering concerns among his constituents about the process prompted Rep. Dixon to call for the Missouri House to hold hearings on the issue. As the chair of the newly-formed interim committee, Rep. Dixon will conduct hearings on MIAC procedures with the goal of ensuring an adequate level of oversight.

The federal/state balancing act

Homeland security intelligence gathering pits law enforcement against privacy concerns

By Ben Bain Mar 27, 2009

The push to gather and share more security information to prevent terrorist attacks has created a new category of intelligence information: homeland security intelligence.

Questionable associations

The Missouri state Information Analysis Center created a report on the modern-day militia movement, and the report was leaked to the public. In the report, MIAC states that members of militias are usually supporters of third-party presidential candidates, such as Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin or Bob Barr. The report, which has been widely discussed on blogs, is an example of what privacy advocates fear could come from information-gathering policies that allow too much leeway. The implication is that supporters of those candidates are more likely to be be militia members, thereby arousing undue suspicion based on a political affiliation.

In response, the Missouri center issued a statement saying that such reports are meant to educate officers and provide background on possible criminal activity and “are not a basis upon which to take enforcement action.” MIAC also said it was concerned about the “mischaracterizations of a document following its recent unauthorized release.”

Congressional hearings, laws, working groups, strategies, executive orders and information technology investments during the past eight years have created programs to share data among different levels of government, Those programs extend beyond terrorism-related intelligence to law enforcement data and information related to public health and disasters. Information sharing is part of the solution to handling homeland security risks, but it also creates problems, some privacy protection advocates say.

Proponents of involving nonfederal authorities in counterterrorism efforts say local law enforcement officers are best suited to stop terrorist activity because they are working in their own communities, which gives them the ability to detect suspicious behaviors more easily than federal authorities can.

However, some critics worry that because of homeland security intelligence’s broad scope, those collection efforts encourage local authorities to track activities that are constitutionally protected and not criminal. They also say that local authorities are being encouraged to collect too much information.

Deweese Cuts to the Chase-Total Surveillance Society

Government Gone Mad in a Total Surveillance Society


Tom Deweese  Bio

Send a friendEmail Article
broken watermains

 By Tom Deweese  Thursday, June 25, 2009

I’ve heard it all- the cries, the pleas, the whines, the double speak and the lies. “We need the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to protect us from terrorists.” “We must have Real ID to protect us from illegal immigration.” “We must have E-Verify to protect American jobs.” “Traffic light cameras are necessary to make the streets safer.” “Security cameras on street corners make our neighborhoods safer.” “I’m glad the TSA is there at the airport – I feel so much safer getting on an airplane.” And my favorite lie of them all – “If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear.”

Take note: every single one of these issues results in bigger, more invasive government, and not a single one will do anything to solve the intended problem. Every single one will make you less free, less happy and less safe. Here is my guarantee – put each and every one of these programs fully into place and learn the hard way that it isn’t the final solution – but only the beginning. The government has much more in store for Americans and their privacy and personal security – and you are not going to be happy. Get ready, Americans. Here it comes like a freight train. And if you’ve uttered one of the whines listed above, then you have no one to blame but yourself.

I’ve argued that the Department of Homeland Security is the greatest threat to liberty Americans have ever faced. It began with 170,000 employees by combining 22 existing federal agencies, including Border Patrol, Coast Guard, Secret Service, FEMA, Transportation Security Agency (TSA), Immigration and Naturalization, Customs Service, Animal and Plant Health Inspection, Federal Protective Service, FBI’s Domestic Preparedness, Federal Computer Incident Response Center, and several more lesser agencies of the same type.

All of these agencies are under the control of one manager, the Secretary of Homeland Security. As a result of provisions in the Patriot Act (a monstrous law, passed in the panic of 911 and admittedly never read by a single member of Congress before it was passed) the DHS Secretary – one person – has the power to send federal law enforcement into private homes without a search warrant. Records and materials may be taken from private homes, computer records searched, phones tapped and e-mails monitored, without the knowledge of the suspect.

Now, some may argue that all of that is necessary to catch a terrorist and that it is not intended to affect innocent citizens. Again, it’s the -“IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE – YOU HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR” excuse. Before moving forward, let’s get rid of this naive utterance once and for all.

First, that statement really says that government always gets it right. So fear of searches is just nonsense – if you are innocent. Well, have you heard the recording of Campaign for Liberty employee Steve Bierfeldt when he was detained by the TSA simply because he was carrying less than $2,000 in cash from a conference? All young Steve did was ask the TSA agents to show him the law that said they had a right to ask him why he was carrying the money. The checks in the same metal box as the cash were made out to the Campaign for Liberty. Any moron could have figured out where the money came from and what it was for. But the TSA didn’t care – they wanted to show their authority. Biefeldt presented the entire box to TSA agents, not trying to conceal it in any way. TSA tried to bully him and threatened to turn him over to drug enforcement authorities, as an attempt to make it appear he was carrying the cash from drug deals. Steve’s reply was basically, “Fine – will they be able to show me the law?” Innocent Steve had nothing to hide and plenty to fear from TSA thugs.

Second, that statement says that the Bill of Rights was only created to protect the guilty. You see, if you have nothing to hide, then you obviously don’t need to be protected from government. The Constitution was written by men who feared government – even the one they were creating – and they put safeguards in it to force government to recognize and respect our property and our right to be innocent until proven guilty. DHS and the Patriot Act, and those who use the mantra “If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear,” reject and ignore those guarantees. Under the Patriot Act and it’s agents in the DHS and TSA, you are not secure in your home or your person, you are not innocent until proven guilty and you are not allowed to face your accusers. That means tyranny, not the Constitution, is in control.

Supposedly, the DHS mission is to be our frontline against terrorism. An added bonus, say its supporters, is to help reduce illegal immigration. Yet the department has opposed the most obvious element of “homeland security” – securing the nation’s borders. DHS has blocked building the wall. It’s done nothing about enforcing Visa violators. And sometimes it even blocks local law enforcement from arresting and deporting known illegals.

Instead, DHS has been on a rampage to impose rules, regulations and projects, all designed to put legal, law abiding Americans in a massive straight jacket.

Real ID is not a tool to fight illegal immigration

First there was the Real ID Act. Unfortunately, some misguided Conservative leaders, both in the grassroots and in Congress continue to support this terrible Act as a safeguard to stop illegal immigration. They are horribly wrong.

Real ID is argued to be an attempt to standardize the process and format for the creation of all state drivers’ licenses to achieve increased security. Proponents argue that now we will know that anyone carrying a driver’s license is legal in this country and therefore not a threat. What most Americans do not know is that Real ID did not originate in the United States, but in the backrooms of a UN organization called the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

Real ID mandates a certain picture quality for all drivers’ licenses that are to be compliant with the ICAO’s Document 9303 biometric format. Your photo taken by a local DMV is run thorough special software which measures and analyzes the unique personally identifiable characteristics of your face. The process results in a unique numeric code which identifies a person according to facial measurements. In other words, under Real ID, your face is reduced to a number code – a number which is read by computer, tracked by surveillance cameras and distributed worldwide by the ICAO. Take a look at your drivers’ license – if it has a blue background, it is ICAO-compliant.

Real ID is not a national ID card designed to protect us from terrorism and illegal immigration – it is an INTERNATIONAL ID card designed to track the movements of everyone wherever they go – anywhere in the world. As you read on you will find that it will get much worse, for Real ID is only the first step.

The Obama Administration is now talking about repealing Real ID because there is such opposition to it. Do not be fooled. They know they are caught with this monster and so the flimflam is on – repeal Real ID and replace it with something much worse. That’s how they play the game.

Twittering-Coordinated Mayhem (at the RNC)


I was in the bookstore and spotted this;





Naturally I was intrigued and bought the magazine.   Here is what I found inside;

Twitter.com and Coordinated Mayhem:

An Examination of the Incorporation of Twitter by the RNC Welcoming Committee

By Lance Lamoreaux


There are myriads of threats that jeopardize peace and stability. Among these threats, the proliferation of extremism is a peril to civilized society. These extremist include, but are not limited to the following: religious, anarchists, anti-government, and anti-globalization. They operate both in the United States and abroad. Advances in technology and media have enabled extremists to broadcast their propaganda to an untold audience. These provocative messages have enticed a vulnerable following into discontent and action. Consider the riots that occurred during World Trade Organization meetings in Seattle, the Rwandan Genocide, and the recent rioting in Greece. Instability is increasing with the compounding of the economic crisis. The reality is that there are countless people being incited to violence and extremism through media manipulation. The fact that that these extremists are coordinating themselves through technology is especially frightening. There is one media source that combines both dissemination and coordination – Twitter.com.


The RNCWC effectively disrupted the RNC through careful organization. The RNC Welcoming Committee website has a link to a PowerPoint Presentation that meticulously outlines the group’s objectives, shares intelligence including maps, police statistics, government policies, Delegate hotels, and expresses communication procedures. On the slide labeled “Communications” is the following text:

* Will utilize .txtmob, so bring your cell phones
* Will offer scout trainings in the weeks leading up to the RNC
* Tin Can Comms Collective is developing a comms system
It appears that rather than using .txtmob(13), the RNCWC used Twitter as their communication system. One of the PowerPoint slides has a map that labels seven different sectors(14). On Twitter.com, there are seven corresponding sectors(15).

Furthermore, participants on the street sent text messages that were received by other members of that sector. With the information coming in from the other sectors, the dispatchers and street level participants were able to coordinate attacks, avoid arrests, and exploit security weaknesses.

There was one principal dispatcher that coordinated the action of the other sectors.

The Twitter profile was RNC08. The Twitter profile RNC08 had 537  people following its updates. The profile even had a link to the RNCWC’s website.  The link is irrefutable proof that the RNCWC used Twitter to coordinate their actions in St. Paul. 

Neat.  I was one of the 537 followers of RNC08.

 Does the ability to use a social networking tool earn me a designation of “extremist” or as an anarchist?

TheRNCWC’s website never makes any direct references to Twitter. Most likely the RNCWC’s organizers did not want law enforcement to be aware of their method of communication.

I’ll bet you are right about that.

 Their website did state that anarchist organizations wishing to participate should contact them through email. This is most likely when anarchists were informed of using Twitter to communicate.

Yep-I guess I am “one of them” by that logic.  Psst.  Hey Lance Lamoreaux (if that is your real name) there is this thing they have on Twitter called a search engine.  http://search.twitter.com/

If someone is attending an event and they use Twitter it wouldn’t be unusual to check and see if someone is referencing that event. i.e. a search for RNC will produce RNC08. BTW, I am a Republican, not an anarchist.

Twitter users (most of whom are not terrorist ahem -Carl Rove-) even have a crafty method of calling attention to particular subject matter by using “hashtags”.   By placing a hashtag before a term, users can add metadata to their Tweets.   Like this;


You could use that tag whenever you wanted to highlight tweets that make reference to the methods and theories of subversion and if it catches on others would use it too making it easy to locate this kind of information among all the chatter on Twitter. 

Lance wraps up this way;


By applying Twitter, the RNCWC was able to coordinate mayhem and stay a step ahead of law enforcement. Twitter is an ideal means of communication for coordinating large amounts of people as it is free and able to broadcast messages to untold masses.


Law enforcement in St. Paul did an exceptional job of gathering intelligence before the event. Their preparation and appropriate response effectively prevented the RNCWC from “crashing the party.” Law enforcement and security managers must continue to adapt and prepare for advances technology. Typically, information on MySpace and Twitter sites is relatively easy to infiltrate as computer “undercover” work is simplified. If security personal suspect an impending attack involving masses of people, it is essential that they monitor blogs and other social networking sites for information and insight.

Stability, peace, and order hang by a thread as anti-establishment rhetoric fills the information superhighway.


 Economic decline only exacerbates security threats posed

Twitter Terrorists?

AFC examines the issue from a decidedly different perspective;

Social Networking” as Political Paranoia

As a subset of applied mathematics, social network theory purports to uncover hidden links and relationships amongst social groups and networks and has over time, become an invasive tool deployed by private- and state intelligence agencies against political activists

Having identified the RNC-WC as an enemy to be contained at all costs, HW cites the group’s open, legal political organizing, including obtaining “financial support” and “increased membership via the internet” as well as “public appearances at various locations across the US,” as a significant factor that rendered the group a legitimate target for surveillance and disruption

One can argue, as did the late civil liberties scholar Frank Donner, that the RNC-WC’s legal organizing made them doubly suspect in the eyes of securocrats. In so far as the group’s stated goal was to expose the “enormous amount of … horror and devastation currently experienced by the world and its peoples” by the Republican Party, their dissident stance transformed them into dangerous “others,” ripe pickings for “aggressive intelligence.” Donner wrote;

The FBI’s assertedly modest intelligence function as an early warning alert to prosecutors and a decision-making resource masks its true role as a weapon against threats to the existing order. Planned injury, implemented by an illegal autonomous system of power, explains domestic intelligence far more convincingly than either the “pure” or “preventative” intelligence thesis. Investigation and accumulation of information are at root merely the means to the ends of punishment, intimidation, frustration, and defeat of movements for change of any kind. (The Age of Surveillance, New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1980, p. 177)

 According to the theory, by monitoring the communication patterns between various targeted nodes, a networked structure is discernible, one amenable to infiltration and disruption by a security agency. Indeed, in the context of HW’s discourse social network- and link analysis was applied for mass surveillance of dissident groups such as the RNC-WC prior to the Republican Party National Convention.

And in order to buttress its charge that RNC-WC and related anarchist groups are intent on violent confrontations rather than hard-edged civil disobedience, HW ominously declares:

The community at large appears to be a decentralized network since it does not possess one central hub; however, it does possess several important hubs. Consequently, these networks are more difficult to disrupt due to their loose connections and easy ability to replace damaged or compromised nodes. As such, the national convention anarchists are following the pattern of most terror networks in this aspect. (HW, p. 5, emphasis added

Jason Ethier of Northeastern University, in his study of modern social network analysis, said the following of the the Scalable Social Network Analysis Program developed by the Information Awareness Office:

The purpose of the SSNA algorithms program is to extend techniques of social network analysis to assist with distinguishing potential terrorist cells from legitimate groups of people … In order to be successful SSNA will require information on the social interactions of the majority of people around the globe. Since the Defense Department cannot easily distinguish between peaceful citizens and terrorists, it will be necessary for them to gather data on innocent civilians as well as on potential terrorists.

This powerpoint explains the network analysis visually;

The internet is a remarkable tool for communications of any kind, there is nothing mysterious or insidious about taking advantage of the opportunities it presents to do what mankind has been doing ever since the creation of language-communicating.

If doing that is suspect, well, then we are all in a heap of trouble then aren’t we?

MO Fusion Center Produces a Masterpiece

Fantastic High Technology, Vast Intelligence Networks, Deep Citizen Data Dossiers Produces Crime Forecasting that is the Envy of Bone Casters and Entrails Readers Worldwide



The Modern Militia Movement

(A fascinating look into Governmentally Induced Disordered Thinking) Apparently we are not only All Socialists Now  but many of us are Militant Right-Wing Extremists too according to the MIAC or the Missouri Information Analysis Center, a fine example of a Fusion Center located in Missouri.

From The MIAC Website;


What is MIAC and why it is needed?

Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) provides a public safety partnership consisting of local, state and federal agencies, as well as the public sector and private entities that will collect, evaluate, analyze, and disseminate information and intelligence to the agencies tasked with Homeland Security responsibilities in a timely, effective, and secure manner.


MIAC is the mechanism to collect incident reports of suspicious activities to be evaluated and analyzed in an effort to identify potential trends or patterns of terrorist or criminal operations within the Missouri area.  MIAC will also function as a vehicle for two-way communication between federal, state and local law enforcement community within our region.


New challenges demanding vigilance

With the cooperation of the law enforcement community, MIAC will disseminate threat related intelligence from a single point for the purpose of creating a heightened situational awareness to law enforcement agencies and public entities charged with protecting our community

May I suggest, in regards to Missouri’s “FUSION” center is suffering from a rare form of artificially created Disorders of thought form:  as described by Frontier Psychiatrist; Mental Illness for the Masses;

Overinclusion refers to a widening of the boundaries of concepts such that things are grouped together that are not often closely connected.

Loosening of associations denotes a loss of the normal structure of thinking.  The patient’s discourse seems muddled and illogical and does not become clearer with further questioning; there is a lack of general clarity, and the interviewer has the experience that the more he/she tries to clarify the patient’s thinking the less it is understood.  Loosening of associations occurs mostly in schizophrenia

Circumstantiality is where thinking proceeds slowly with many unnecessary details and digressions, before returning to the point.  This is seen in epilepsy, learning difficulties and obsessional personalities 

Derailment (aka entgleisen) is where there is a change in the track of thoughts.  There is perserved, but misdirected determining of tendency/goal of thought)

With drivelling there is a disordered intermixture of the constituent parts of one complex thought

In a disordered process driven by federal IN-fusion of cash, an overabundance of ambiguous data with the subsequent pressure upon these agencies to produce results in the;

 Fusion where various thoughts are fused together, leading to a loss of goal direction.

…of the tortured mind.    

This is the consequences of such pressure to predict who might be or become the demons among us.  The first fallacy of logic here is the exact sort of conspiratorial rational of human behavior that these fusion centers decry in their imagined enemies.

Fusion Center by virtue of their very structure are Schizophrenic.

Fusion Centers

Let’s consider what the insight that this structure has produced in the name of Intelligence.

The Gadson Flag is a symbol of Anti-Government Propaganda. (MIAC Strategic Report)


In December 1775, Benjamin Franklin published an essay in the Pennsylvania Journal under the pseudonym American Guesser in which he suggested that the rattlesnake was an apt symbol for the American spirit:

I recollected that her eye excelled in brightness, that of any other animal, and that she has no eye-lids—She may therefore be esteemed an emblem of vigilance.—She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage.—As if anxious to prevent all pretentions of quarrelling with her, the weapons with which nature has furnished her, she conceals in the roof of her mouth, so that, to those who are unacquainted with her, she appears to be a most defenceless animal; and even when those weapons are shewn and extended for her defence, they appear weak and contemptible; but their wounds however small, are decisive and fatal:—Conscious of this, she never wounds till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her.—Was I wrong, Sir, in thinking this a strong picture of the temper and conduct of America?


Apparently so, Mr. Franklin , at least according to the MIAC’s rationale.


 I will confess my affection for the symbolism expressed by the Gadson Flag.  Maybe is because I am from South Carolina, maybe because I was raised to appreciate the same sensibilities that Ben Franklin so eloquently expresses, but to me if one possesses the means and might to strike with lethal force in defense of life and liberty, honor demands a clear and ample warning.  “Don’t Tread on Me” is a simple, moral statement of clear intent that we inherited from our civilized, peace and freedom loving forefathers.  I honor this notion of fair play and actually own a beautiful Gadson Flag, along with two American Flag’s that I treasure, but the MIAC has planted a seed of doubt.  Maybe I am considered to be “ONE of THEM”



Let’s examine the traits of these Extremists who, according to the MIAC develop complicated conspiracy theories to explain their misfortunes. 


What is the “New World Order”?

 If you have formed a concept of a New World Order, I’d say you might qualify, if you have used it as a point of reference in a sentence then you certainly do.

Henry Kissinger is quite fond of the idea;


From TIME;

New World Order


How about the North American Union?  Do you think that there is an effort to link the US, Canada and Mexico, unify the monetary system of the 3 countries and further, do you believe that the NAAFTA Superhighway has anything to do with this?

If so do you think that this superhighway would present the US with a security risk and make it easier for illegal immigrants to cross the border?

This concept has been discussed countless times in periodicals of fine repute and I am not fooling with it!

So where do you stand so far?

Does fusion center intelligence designate You as one of THEM?

Here are more signs useful in identifying extremists According to MIAC:


Those who are concerned about “Gun Control” At the risk of revealing myself, let me say;  if you are not concerned about gun control-YOU DARN WELL OUGHT TO BE!

The UN’s War on Firearms

By William Norman Grigg 02/11/02



In matters of disarmament, all roads increasingly lead to the United Nations. This principle applies not only to international “arms control” initiatives, but to civilian disarmament — or what is commonly called “gun control.” Thus it should come as no surprise that the UN has capitalized upon the Black Tuesday attack to advance its campaign to prevent firearms ownership by “non-state actors” — a category that not only includes terrorists, guerrillas, drug lords, and gangsters, but also law-abiding civilians. In an October 28th address to the UN General Assembly’s First Committee, Jayantha Dhanapala, the UN’s undersecretary-general for disarmament affairs, expressed the hope that the September 11th atrocity would “encourage states to consider once again the need to prohibit the transfer of military-grade small arms and light weapons to non-state actors [. . . ]The relevant UN document — the August 19, 1999 “Report of the Group of Governmental Experts on Small Arms” — defines “small arms” to include “rifles,” as well as “revolvers and self-loading pistols” — which many law-abiding Americans own. The UN has made it abundantly clear, however, that it regards civilian possession of firearms of any type to be “illicit” by definition.


 Do you think that it is possible that your weapons could be confiscated by the government?

After Hurricane Katrina, law-abiding Americans were disarmed by National Guard Troops;

I guess “Fusion Center” is a very apt name for these new intelligence gathering methods because even the ‘lefties” are “righties”.  That is certainly a fusion!

What about the question regarding President Obama’s Birth Certificate or place of origin?  Are you a questioner?

Obama Refuses to Answer Birth Certificate Laws

The lawsuit, filed by former Pennsylvania Deputy Attorney General Philip J. Berg — a self-avowed supporter of Hillary Clinton — alleges that Barack Obama was born in Kenya and is thus “ineligible” to run for president of the United States. It demands that Obama’s lawyers produce a copy of his original birth certificate to prove that he is a natural-born U.S. citizen.

Have you entertained the notion that we could be moving towards World Governance?

How do you like the Ammunition Accountability Act?  (This is an Act that requires all rounds to be engraved with an ID number which can link the ammo to place of purchase and purchaser)

Do you think that the US government might fail due to an economic collapse If so, do you fear that Martial Law may be implemented followed by gun confiscation and citizen imprisonment?  

Do you know how to pronouncePosse Comitatus

I think I may be one of them!

What about RFID chips?  Any fear that citizens could ever face mandatory mass implantation of these devices? Think that they might be used as a tracking device?

Canada does;

Furthermore, the Commissioners continue to be concerned by the potential threat to privacy embodied by RFID technology, which may:


• permit the surreptitious location tracking of individuals carrying an EDL (enhanced Driver’s licenses); and


• not encrypt or otherwise protect the unique identifying number assigned to the holder of the EDL and would not protect any other personal information stored on the RFID.


Full Report by the IPC



2005 article revealing DHS document obtained through the Freedom of Information Act;     Article about the request          

Homeland Security Looking at RFID Technology to Track Individuals

 DHS is seeking RFID devices that “can be sensed remotely, passively, and automatically….The device must be readable under all kinds of indoor and outdoor conditions… and while carried by pedestrians or vehicle occupant,” according to the RFI, which is posted at the authors’ website: http://www.spychips.com/DHS-RFID.pdf.

DHS has set “several high-level goals” for the reading of RFID “tokens” carried by travelers, including:speeds up to 55 mph.  

• The solution must…identify the exact location of the read such as a specific pedestrian or vehicle lane in which the token is read.

• The solution presented must sense the remote data capture technology carried by a pedestrian traveler at distances up to 25 ft.

• The solution presented must sense all tokens carried by travelers seated in a single automobile, truck, or bus at a distance up to 25 ft. while moving at

• For a successful read, the traveler should not have to hold or present the token in any special way to enable the reading of the token’s information. The goal is for the reader to sense a token carried on a traveler’s person or anywhere in a vehicle.

DHS privacy office slams RFID technology


 2006 Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee to the Secretary and the Chief Privacy Officer of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had this to say about RFID:


But the draft report roundly condemns RFID technology, stating that it can be used to monitor human behavior. The report endorses the use of RFID for miners and firefighters in dangerous situations.

‘Most difficult and troubling is the situation in which RFID is ostensibly used for tracking objects (medicine containers, for example) but can in fact be used for monitoring human behavior,’ the report states. [. . . ]The report goes on to specify various ways in which information stored on RFID tags can be compromised or improperly used for human surveillance


Suffice it to say that concern about the MISUSE of new technology is completely warranted and if you are leery of it, you are in good company.  The are no less that 700 groups and organizations that feel the same way.  From the ACLU to the ACLJ (long time arch-enemies) the people who have given this issue anymore than a cursory glance, are gravely concerned about how it will impact our society and freedoms.


Do you consider yourself to be a Sovereign Individual?

Are you a State Sovereignty Advocate?  In other words, supportive of the Constitution’s Enumerated Powers Clause or the arguably necessary (because the Constitution is very clear on the separation of powers)

Founder/Framer of the US Constitution, James Madison explains that the state and local governments;

 are no more subject, within their respective spheres, to the general authority, than the general authority is subject to them, within its own sphere.”

In order to avoid leaving the matter of the co-sovereign relationship of the states to the federal government the founders included it in the Bill of Rights, reiterating concept in the 10th Amendment:

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution . . . are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”

Justice Scalia, in 1997 rendered the decision of the Supreme Court Case, Printz v US, reiterated the co-sovereign status of the states to the federal government.  He said;

The Constitution’s structure reveals a principle that controls these cases: the system of “dual sovereignty.”

Although the States surrendered many of their powers to the new Federal Government, they retained a residuary and inviolable sovereignty that is reflected throughout the Constitution’s text.

“The Framers,” Justice Scalia wrote, “rejected the concept of a central government that would act upon and through the States, and instead designed a system in which the State and Federal Governments would exercise concurrent authority over the people.”


Are these the leaders of the “Modern Militia Movement” that the MIAC report warns of?  One of the belief systems offered by MIAC as indicative of dangerous thinking is the “strong states rights advocates but see the sheriff as the highest authority”  Well, I don’t know about THE “highest authority” in a general sense but in their respective counties that certainly is an arguable position, at least it used to be so before our central government began buying them all with grants and federal favoritism which has had the effect of  supplanting community leaders with more international and federal loyalists such as IACP members.

Inhofe, Coburn…..MIAC thinks that You are one of THEM.



Anti-Abortion ?  Tax Protester (who isn’t)?

MIAC lists those who are Anti-Immigrationdo they mean anti-illegal immigration?  Considering that other than the Native Americans, we all hearken back to immigrants…..I am unaware of any groups that are anti-immigrant.  But I’m no expert and do not have a Magic 8 Ball handy or a Fusion Center.

Apparently these militant extremists like to get together and conduct MILSIM-military simulation.  MIAC informs us that this is a realistic combat sport that utilizes paint ball guns, airsoft and realistic war games.

  Does World of Warcraft count?  I guess I will skip the paintball, although I could use the excersize.  Is Laser Tag ok?  I really like that and usually get top score over the kiddies and (even a few husbands) 

Also, these subversives have an affinity for Shortwave Radio!

I throw myself before the mercy of the court!  My Dad had the tallest antenna around and I thought he was cool getting up at three in the morning to talk to people in Greenland.  We used CB’s like cell phones with the power his base station put out and my first real job was as a dispatcher.  I dearly love talk radio, ham radio, and even internet radio.  Speaking of which MIAC informs us thatthese groups use forums, yahoo groups, blogs and social networks online.”

 Yeah geniuses, So do fortune 500 CEO’s.

In addition, these groups use internet mediums and talk shows established for the purpose of …..discussing these unacceptable interests.  What’s more is the MIAC has established that their recounting of current events is usually skewed.

 Compared to what, I ask.  CBS, MSNBC?  So, are perspectives no longer allowed?  If not, what is the correct source from which to get the proper version?  Who has that ultimate truth?  The Pentagon, the Washington Press Secretary, Wolf Blitzer?  Who?

And, these people hold training events that are open to the public and generally recruit publicly.   They desire to aid the County Sheriff or Governor in emergencies such as a natural disaster”

(Holy Smokes!  That just beats all!  Public service, helping out in times of emergency…what ails these people?  They even exercise their 1st Amendment right completely out in the OPEN?!  In AMERICA?!  No way!)

“It is not uncommon for these groups to be seen doing community service related work”

Some operate as a unit with leaders but many are individuals with no ties to groups per se but share an ideology(slippery devils, they are.)

They organize COS (committees of safety) for the purpose of lobbying government officials and confronting corruption.

  Ok-where do I sign up?  I think I like these guys

Finally MIAC warns Law Enforcement- “YOU are the Enemy”

 and to that I say “Touche!”

MIAC points out that these people do not like;

·         FEMA Camps

·         The North American Union or the Kansas City “Smart Port” (how smart can it be to have a port and no ocean for hundreds of miles?)

·         Federal Reserve Banks

·         National Guard Facilities

·         Federal Buildings or facilities

And they fear that the aforementioned infrastructure could be at risk in Missouri

At the bottom it says;

“The information herein may not be MIAC originated intelligence unless noted” and therefore the” annoted originating agencies in the newsletter should be contacted for the sources and reliability of the information”

Ok-that settles it!  That last statement is all the proof I need that this is a genuine government publication.

I don’t know about you but I share enough of the traits listed to make me feel distinctly uncomfortable.  Does it matter if I have never been accused or convicted of a criminal charge? (just traffic tickets for being a garden variety lousy driver)  But maybe that is just a clever ruse……
