“Domestic Terrorist” Policy Announced in 1999 Now Codified in Patriot Act

The internet, a March 11 article by Kurt Nimmo of Info Wars, the March 14 Columbia, Missouri Daily Tribune, and an outstanding March 17th article by Chuck Baldwin himself tells the unbelievable story that the Missouri Information Analysis (MIAC) has actually named Congressman Ron Paul and Republican Presidential Candidate, Former Congressman Bob Barr and Libertarian Presidential Candidate, and Chuck Baldwin, Pastor of Crossroad Baptist Church of Pensacola, Florida and Constitutional Presidential Candidate as “militia influenced terrorists.”  The warning that we sounded back in 1999, concerning law abiding citizens being deemed as “domestic terrorists” by our own government in a seminar entitled Home Grown Extremists that was held August 16-20, 1999 in Nashville, Tennessee by the Association of Undercover Agents, has now reached into the higher echelons of our citizenry and shows that the conspirators are getting stronger and bolder.
According to the MIAC web site, “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 state of Missouri. MIAC will also function as a vehicle for two-way communication between federal, state and local law enforcement community within our region.”
MIAC is part of the federal “fusion” effort now underway around the country. “As of February 2009, there were 58 fusion centers around the country. The Department has deployed 31 officers as of December 2008 and plans to have 70 professionals deployed by the end of 2009. The Department has provided more than $254 million from FY 2004-2007 to state and local governments to support the centers,” explains the Department of Homeland Security on its website. Missouri is mentioned as a participant in this federal “intelligence” effort.
Obviously this is a part of the nebulous so-called “Patriot Act” that was passed as an emergency measure after the 911 attack.  Following is a portion of an archived article entitled, 'Domestic Terrorist' Reported In Clinton-Era Flyer Has Now Been Codified Into Law! Patriot Act Will Be Our Undoing"
NEWS BRIEF: "YOU MIGHT BE A TERRORIST", by Brad Edmonds, LewRockwell.com, By Brad Edmonds, 11/15/01, Rense.com
"H.R. 3162, 'The Patriot Bill', or the antiterrorism bill, might make you a terrorist ... the antiterrorism bill so loved by Congress and the White House has redefined terrorism. According to Sec. 802, (a) (5) (B) (ii), 'the term 'domestic terrorism' means activities that appear to be intended to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion'. Again: If the activity appears to be intended to influence the policy of a government - not just the United States government - by intimidation, it's domestic terrorism. Most important: Since all we require is intimidation, how would we define that?"
"Domestic Terrorism may just be the codeword the government plans to use to justify the rounding up and persecution of patriots and Fundamental Christians. When you hear the FBI announce that a major terrorist attack is the work of 'Domestic Terrorists', you may be sure that the time for the roundup of patriots and Fundamental Christians may be close. On October 3, 2001, we printed a warning that a major redefinition of what constitutes a "terrorist" was virtually inevitable. Oh, how we wish we had been wrong! This redefinition did not take long coming, but that still does not lessen the shock that it is here, written into law in the Patriot Bill."
Nimmo continues his response: “The MIAC report does not concentrate on Muslim terrorists, but rather on the so-called “militia movement” and conflates it with supporters of Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, Bob Barr, the so-called patriot movement and other political activist organizations opposed to the North American Union and the New World Order. The MIAC document is a classic guilt by association effort designed to demonize legitimate political activity that stands in opposition to the New World Order and its newly enshrined front man, Barack Obama.
In September of 2008, Missouri sheriffs and prosecutors organized truth squads to intimidate people opposed to Obama and threatened to arrest and prosecute anybody who ran “misleading television ads.” Missouri governor Matt Blunt eventually denounced the use of “police state tactics” on the part of the Obama-Biden campaign.
MIAC claims members of a “rightwing” militia movement organized in the 1990s — generally in response to the Oklahoma City bombing and the events at Waco — “continuously exploit world events in order to increase participation in their movements. Due to the current economical and political situation, a lush environment for militia activity has been created” and supposedly exploited by “constitutionalists” and “white supremacists,” the latter an oft-employed canard used to demonize activists as dangerous and potentially violent lunatics.
MIAC notes many of the political issues cited by the so-called patriot movement — the Ammunition Accountability Act, the impending economic collapse of the government, the possibility of a constitutional convention, the North American Union, Obama’s “Universal Service Program,” and the implementation of RFID -- are “issues that are not limited to the patriot movement but are shared by a wide array of political activists.”
Nimmo continues, “The MIAC report is similar to one created by the Phoenix Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Joint Terrorism Task Force during the Clinton administration. The FBI document explicitly designates “defenders” of the Constitution as “right-wing extremists.” The MIAC report expands significantly on the earlier document.
In order to artificially heighten the perceived threat threshold, MIAC rolls in Christian Identity, white nationalism, “militant” anti-abortion activists, opposition to illegal immigration, and income tax resistance. MIAC deceptively blurs the lines between these disparate political ideologies and underscores the possibility for violence in a summary of the organizational structure of the militia movement and a section describing how members strive to train in “combat readiness.”
The MIAC report is particularly pernicious because it indoctrinates Missouri law enforcement in the belief that people who oppose confiscatory taxation, believe in the well-documented existence of a New World Order and world government (a Google search of this phrase will pull up numerous references made by scores of establishment political leaders), and are opposed to the obvious expansion of the federal government at the expense of the states as violent extremists who are gunning for the police. It specifically targets supporters of mainstream political candidates and encourages police officers to consider them dangerous terrorists.
MIAC is attempting to radicalize the police against political activity guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. If Missouri police indoctrinated by MIAC propaganda overreact to political activists and supporters of Ron Paul in their state and injure or kill people involved in entirely legal and legitimate political activity, MIAC, the governor of Missouri (his name appears on the MIAC document), and the DHS and federal government should be held directly responsible and prosecuted the fullest extent of the law.”
In Pastor Baldwin’s report, he lists again those who our government now believes make up the category of “domestic terrorists.”  Are you, dear reader, in this list?  You very may well be if you oppose: “The New World Order, The United Nations, Gun Control, The violation of Posse Comitatus, The Federal Reserve, The Income Tax, The Ammunition Accountability Act, A possible Constitutional Convention (Con Con), The North American Union, Universal Service Program, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Abortion on demand, Illegal Immigration, besides supporting such candidates as Ron Paul, Bob Barr or Pastor Chuck Baldwin for the Presidency of the United States of America. Pastor Baldwin then closes his article with an appeal that I would encourage all to participate and then a warning that I trust all will take special note.
“I encourage everyone who believes in the freedom of speech
and who believes that the MIAC report is an egregious miscarriage of justice to contact the appropriate Missouri police officials. Here is the contact information:

And lest one thinks that none of this concerns him or her, I would like to remind you of the lament of Martin Niemoeller back in the days of Hitler's Germany. Niemoeller was a decorated U-Boat Captain and pastor of great distinction. An avid anti-communist, Niemoeller at first supported Hitler's rise to power and was hesitant to oppose the violations of civil rights against various groups he personally found distasteful. It did not take long, however, before Niemoeller realized that when laws protecting the rights of all were removed from some, no one was safe--including him.

Unfortunately, he learned his lesson too late, as he, too, was persecuted and imprisoned by Hitler's State Police. Here is what Niemoeller said about his indifference:

"They came first for the communists, and I did not speak up-
            because I was not a communist;
And then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak up-
            because I was not a trade unionist;
And then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak up-
            because I was not a Jew;
And then they came for me-
            and there was no one left to speak up."

So, those of you who think you have nothing to fear because you did not vote for Ron Paul, Bob Barr, or me, or because you do not live in the State of Missouri need to think again. As I have repeatedly said, we either have freedom for all, or we have freedom for none. Truly, secret police reports such as the one above threaten the liberties of us all.

So, will you speak up now or wait until they come for you and no one is left to speak up?”
In my next article on this subject I will expand on my statement in my opening paragraph, on my warning in 1999, and will also actually tell who is really behind this effort to destroy Fundamental Christianity and the true patriots in America. Watch for my follow up article in Freedom’s Phoenix, The Enemies Within.
