Here We Go Again: Agencies “Set Up For Protections” Are Found To Be Hunting Americans
“If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.” -President James Madison
After September 11, 2001, the twin towers in New York were detonated to the earth and we were told that a foreign enemy was responsible for the attacks. Yet, they could not blame anyone except a country that had nothing to do with these attacks, Iraq.
A foreign government could not have dreamed to do to the American people what corruption in its own government has done.
Shortly thereafter, we found something called THE PATRIOT ACT being passed at 3:30 a.m. without one representative having time to read the bill. Before we knew it, the bill was passed and Americans were now finding themselves being assailed by their own government (Jeremiah 11:9).
Here we go again. Recently, the Epoch Times reported:
The FBI is receiving criticism for a tweet it posted on July 11 that suggests Americans should monitor “family members and peers” for signs of “mobilization to violence” and report “suspicious behaviors” in an effort to prevent extremist activities.
“Family members and peers are often best positioned to witness signs of mobilization to violence. Help prevent homegrown violent extremism. Visit https://go.usa.gov/x6mjf to learn how to spot suspicious behaviors and report them to the #FBI,” the tweet read. It also included two photos of an individual highlighted in red accessing a computer.
Within the tweet is a link to a government booklet (pdf) written in 2015 regarding signs that someone might be considering violence, but the publication mainly pertains to Islamist terrorist organizations including ISIS and al-Qaeda.
“It is important to consider the totality of circumstances when observing potential indicators, as some factors may increase the risk of extremist violence in a given situation,” the booklet says, adding that some factors include an individual who has an “inability to cope with changes or perceived failures in relationships, school, or career.”
A “history of violence (e.g., domestic violence or violence toward animals) and unstable mental state; social isolation or inability to join with or relate to others;” and a “possession of, access to, or familiarity with weapons or explosives” should be flagged, the FBI wrote.
“Certainly, behaviors exist and are noted in this booklet that would be troubling regardless of ideological motivation and may warrant contacting law enforcement. However, this booklet is focused on individuals or groups that are inspired or enabled by foreign terrorist organizations, including but not limited to ISIS, al-Qa’ida, and their affiliates and allies,” the document said.
Richard Grenell, a former acting director of national intelligence, wrote that the FBI’s tweet “is outrageous” because the agency “has a growing credibility problem and this type of sinister snitching is clearly unhelpful.” Several Republican lawmakers also criticized the tweet, saying the FBI is encouraging Americans’ family members to spy on one another.
In conclusion: The American people are now finding out for themselves what it is like when corruption in their own government attacks them.
In the end, we are, without a doubt, destroying ourselves. Our sins are finding us out (Numbers 32:23), and that includes the corrupt as well. Most haven’t figured this out yet. Then again, most do not until it is too late (Deuteronomy 28:63)!
