Are You Considered a ‘Paper Terrorist’?

I first started writing publicly about how the U.S. government was going to ultimately switch the “war on terror” to an internal focus and demonize American citizens that express dissent back while I still worked on Wall Street, five or six years ago.  While I was mocked and accused of hyperbole at the time, it has become quite clear that this is exactly the direction we are headed in…and fast. Let’s not forget that the FBI classified peaceful Occupy Wall Street protestors as terrorists as that movement was gaining momentum.  Furthermore, why else would the Department of Homeland Security be buying ammo in such enormous quantities unless the U.S. oligarchy saw its real enemy as the American public itself? The 99.99%.  From the LA Times:

Finch teaches police and public officials around the country how to deal with self-described “sovereign citizens” like Wright. Finch and his partner, Det. Kory Flowers, have trained nearly 15,000 police and 5,000 public officials to combat sovereigns, zealots who refuse to recognize government authority in virtually any form.

Violent confrontations are rare, but the FBI says at least six police officers have been killed by sovereigns since 2000. A man tied to the movement shot and killed a California Highway Patrol officer who stopped him in Contra Costa County last year. A responding officer shot and killed the assailant.

The agency calls sovereigns — who number between 100,000 and 300,000 — a “domestic terrorist movement.”

You’ve gotta love the FBI.  They can’t recognize or jail any of the financial terrorists that have already pulled off the greatest heist in American history and continue to plunder, but once an average citizen complains about their government being criminal and corrupt, THEY are somehow the terrorists.

“To them, a police officer is just a man in a Halloween costume,” Finch said.

Other police departments began requesting their eight-hour seminars. Finch and Flowers now train agents of the FBI, DEA, ATF and Homeland Security — as well as district attorneys, clerks of court, judges and registrars nationwide. Finch says they are the only officers in the country who offer such street-level training.

They teach police to recognize sovereigns by their convoluted legal jargon and “mouthy” defiance. “Sovereign citizens are more likely not to obey their commands and more likely to commit violence during a traffic stop,” Finch said.

Even nonviolent sovereigns can cause headaches through what Finch calls “paper terrorism.” Some squat in foreclosed homes and file phony deeds claiming ownership, “paying” with photos of silver dollars. Sovereigns believe U.S. currency has no value but recognize precious metals as valid currency.

Sorry Finch, if anyone is spreading terror, it is you.

Officials from Greensboro and other cities pushed for a new North Carolina law that makes filing false liens a felony rather than a misdemeanor. Finch said the law, coupled with training of court officials, has helped block or dismiss many phony liens and nuisance lawsuits.

What a total opportunistic shill this Rob Finch is.  The FBI admits, that since 2000 six, I repeat six, officers have been killed by what they call “sovereign citizens,” yet Finch scares police departments and intelligence agencies all over the country by saying they are “more likely to commit violence during a traffic stop.”  I guess it makes sense, after all, when you are trying desperately to demonize a segment of the population you don’t agree with and want to make money off of it facts don’t really matter.

The good news is that the LA Times has a poll at the top of the article which asks: “Is the FBI right to consider this a domestic terrorist movement?”  The responses are 3% say yes and 97% say no.  Sorry, we aren’t going to fall for your nonsense.

    Labels, labels, and more labels. Seems like today that is all we see, hear and say. It’s a shame and a sham. People overall (myself included at times) that are bloggers anyway and for the most part are civil, would rather blog than actively participate in any type of physical confrontation. I don’t agree with harming others but, as most of us know if push came to shove it is a natural instinct and reaction to protect one’s self, and our loved ones if at all possible. We live in times any more that it seems that one never knows when or if this type situation may raise it’s ugly head and present itself to us.

    As far as being considered paper terrorists well, let’s be realistic here, in my opinion any agency can come up with any trumped up accusation to say “we are.” I don’t feel that my opinion is terroristic but hey, who am I besides just a common everyday citizen that pay’s out more taxes than I have income to support these days seems like and more coming. Name calling is atypical of an uneducated and unenlightened individual who is more than likely fighting a cause that they don’t even understand. I think the occupiers is a great example of my opinion.

    LOLOL I think the most interesting thing I have heard in a long time is the other day on the “news” that our children are not our children they belong to the state. Wow ok so who do I send the bills to in the state for food, clothing, daycare, doctor bills, personal care and rearing, and oh my time in raising these kids until they are 18 and oh who’s gonna pay for their college education??? Hey I even want free cable and a cell phone! (joke)

    God bless and have a wonderful day. I have to go get some accounting done and get ready to bill the state for my kids, huh??? LOLOL

    In the 92 election for POTUS, 1/3 of the American electorate chose to support a 3rd party candidate in Ross Perot. The sentiments that Americans need something markedly different from the status quo, has been alive and well in this country for decades. The problem in my opinion is that through what sometimes could be classified as self motivated passivity, we do not coalesce in a manner politically that can motivate peaceful changes to our political processes or systems. So what we get is the same bunch of Frat/Sorority members re-elected each cycle, and only small %’s of periodic intrest in fostering real and significant reform. The bastardization of anyone involved with the Tea Party is a good example of what happens when you chose to support substance over theory. Stand for change, and be drummed off the court. Brian is correct that we are paving our own path here and that if we citizens are not brave enough to support real changes, we should not be surprised at the direction the Fed leads us. Support term limits. Vote for change.

    No, he isn’t saying that he supports those who shoot cops, merely that the threat is being massively overblown.

    As for calling so-called ‘sovereigns’ “far right wing”, I think not. Far right suggests wanting even smaller government and less taxes than ‘small-c conservatives”, NOT racists, as the media keeps saying. In fact, I dare say that Neo Nazis are more likely far LEFT than far right.

    But as for this bunch (and I am referring only to the ones who are violent), I would call them violently paranoid.

  • SO THE AUTHOR OF THIS PIECE IS SYMPATHETIC TO FAR RIGHT TERRORISTS??? A lot of people disagree with the Federal Government, and with other governmental authorites, but they do so in reasonable and civilized ways. But the author of this piece seems to imply that those who go to extremes are somehow normal and law abiding Americans… who just happen to kill policemen for doing their very tough and often very dangerous jobs. Perhaps I should express my disagreement with this author by threatening to shoot him??? THAT is what he seems to be defending!

    Well Thomas, Thanks for insulting those of us who do not bother to comment 90% of the time. Not out of cowardice or lack of opinions but because so many commentaries turn into silly diatribes and name calling by people who seem to have a need to spew out their anger and frustration.

  • If I comment and express my dissent toward the Government then am I a Domestic Terrorist?
    I guess that is why there are ZERO Comments when I post this.
    The vast majority of the American Public are just Socialist cowards.
    Unfortunately you all deserve this.
