And once again, we see Obama targeting not only our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms but now our first amendment right to free speech. Say what you can now because this President will make sure you won’t have that right for long. MB

“Americans motivated by anti-government views and racist ideologies” will be the focus of a new Department of Justice position, John Carlin told a George Washington University crowd on Wednesday.
The Associated Press reports:
The Justice Department is creating a new position to coordinate investigations into violent homegrown extremism, a department officialsaid Wednesday.
Assistant Attorney General John Carlin, head of the department’s national security division, said that while the international terror threat occupies the public attention, federal officials remain just as concerned about the prospect of violence from Americans motivated by anti-government views and racist ideologies.
“We need to make sure we have the mechanisms in place so that we can continue to remain just as focused on the domestic terrorism threat while addressing the international terrorism threat,” Carlin said in a question-and-answer session after a George Washington University speech.
The new “Domestic Terrorism Council” will work with US attorneys nationwide “to identify trends that can be used to help shape a national strategy.”
At the time, Attorney General Eric Holder cited the KKK as if trying to make them relevant again, and he also pointed to “self-radicalized individuals via the Internet” and “plans by lone wolf-style actors” like the shootings at Fort Hood, Texas, and the Boston Marathon bombings to demonstrate the danger of homegrown extremism.
This latest move from the fear-mongering Department of Justice essentially enshrineshomegrown paranoia about imagined enemies. It also serves to justify the further expansion of the military-industrial-surveillance complex into the lives of American citizens on American soil … especially dissenting ones.
The truth is that if the so-called Domestic Terrorism Council were truly interested in ending homegrown extremism, it would need to look no further than the role U.S. government agencies themselves have played in cultivating nearly every act of false flag domestic terror thus far reported.

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
