Department of Homeland Security

Attention, DHS & US Secret Service -- Joyce Kaufman: Insurrectionist, Seditionist, un-American Traitor

Hat-tip Lordrag of DelphiForums for the tip.

People who claim that the Tea Party is a party "of the people, by the people and for the people" are ignoring just what kind of "people" these folks are "for" -- it's not United States citizens, it's citizens who are "like them." They ignore the diverse mix of cultures, races and ethnicities that combine to form our nation's people.

"Tea Baggers" more aptly describe the hateful, fearful, angry insanity that grips them.

So does the term "lunatic fringe."

With any luck, the FBI -- along with DHS and the Secret Service -- are keeping track of these dangerous, unstable individuals. And with a bit of due diligence, perhaps they've assembled enough evidence to start pressing charges against them in a way that helps ensure a trial that will expose their insanity and bring out the facts that they appear to be so ignorant, and yet so angered & fearful, of.

The YouTube video posted above contains some violent, inciteful rhetoric. Here's a couple of choice tidbits (any errors in transcription are mine):

__________

06:00 - 06:25 minutes in:

"I don't care how this gets painted by the mainstream media. I don't care if this shows up on YouTube, because I am convinced that the most important thing that the founding fathers did to ensure me my first amendment rights was they gave me a second amendment. And if ballots don't work, bullets will."

07:47 minutes in:

"When I say I'll put my microphone down on November 2nd if we haven't achieved substantial victory, I mean it. Because at that point, I'm gonna go up into the hills of Kentucky, I'm gonna go out into the midwest, I'm gonna go up in the, ah, Vermont and New Hampshire, ah, outreaches, and I'm gonna gather together men and women who understand that some things are worth fighting for, and some things are worth dying for."

Where the hell was the outrage during the Bush/Cheney administration? Why are these folks so ignorant of the party mostly responsible for not only dropping this nation off an economic cliff while gutting our social and national security safety nets? Why don't these idiots look at the record of the party that was in power, and see how that party has been steadfastly working to prevent the current Administration from addressing and resolving the issues caused by the previous two?

That's the key: they're only angered about losing an election. Since they only favor democracy when it works in their favor, they show their true colors when reality catches up to them...and those colors most certainly aren't red, white and blue.

Their calls to insurrection and for assassination certainly aren't very Christian, either.

It's time that the FBI, Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security begin taking action and bring some charges against some of these imbeciles, before more poor unbalanced fools takes up arms and start shooting indiscriminately.

Otherwise, calls for sedition and treason, as well as shout-outs for the assassination of duly elected government officials, may well spark a violent conflagration between the steadily-increasing numbers of unbalanced, desperate people and the rest of our citizenry.

C'mon, folks -- do your jobs, if you've got enough direct evidence to enable you to move to counteract the rising tides of fear, loathing, anger and resentment before it turns into something even more ugly.

FBI Raids on Militia Members in Michigan

[update] According to reports this may be Christian Militia and this may be Tea Party related. Below the fold...

Here is a video report from ABC's Action News in Detroit:

At this point in time it is unclear how and IF the raids are connected to Militia activity:

The FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and the Joint Terrorism Task Force are all involved in raids around Adrian that may be connected to a militia group.

The FBI conducted multiple raids throughout Saturday and into Sunday, with one of them centered on a property where known members of a militia live.

...snip...

Members of a number of militia groups say that the raids are connected to raids in Indiana and Ohio. However, the FBI has not confirmed that.

Must be something big for a small army of FBI, Homeland Security and the JTTF agents to be moving on them but according to an MSNBC report the raids are not terror related:

The Crossroads of Destiny: Illegal Search And Siezure Cross Border into Existential Hypocrisy

It's right there in the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution:

_____

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

_____

Do not pass go, do not collect two hundred dollars, do not parse, do not fold, mutilate, spindle, tear, gut, burn or shred.

In keeping with policies and procedures consistent with gutting the foundational principles of our Constitution and democracy, the Bush Administration's Department of Homeland Security has proceeded to ignore the care and handling advice and has engaged in the very actions verboten by those instructions.

Immigration Success? No! Incompetence to the Extreme!!

Which seems to be the norm for this country, just look at the leadership that's allowed to continue,
