It’s a long article, but it’s worth reading.
“It is recommended that a PI be opened to determine if [redacted] are engaging in, or have engaged in, activities which constitute a threat to National Security on behalf of a foreign power.”
Reading that, I could hardly believe my eyes. Yielding to a sudden need for fresh air, I went out into my garden and just sat there for a few moments, warming myself in the last rays of the setting sun. It all seemed so unreal. Was this really happening, or had I imagined the whole thing? I returned to my computer and read it again, just to be certain, and – sure enough – there it was, plain as the pixels on my screen: I was accused of being “a threat to National Security” and working “on behalf of a foreign power.”
What “foreign power” would that be – Libertopia? Galt’s Gulch?
On what evidence was this “preliminary investigation” opened – and is it continuing? We don’t know the answers to these questions because the FBI redacted a good deal of the information it released to the FOIA petitioner, an obscure blogger I’ve never heard of. If the feds have such evidence, then let them release it – instead of releasing heavily censored documents that simply make unsupported assertions. That this kind of systematic defamation is now part and parcel of our system of “law enforcement” makes a mockery of the idea that we live in a free society. We don’t, as this incident has brought home to be in a very personal way.
I’m sure it is only a matter of time until your’s truly is on the receiving end of a Stasi investigation for promoting things like individual liberty and sound money. The more my viewership grows, the bigger the threat I become to the criminals holding illegitimate power. The same is true for any website operator in the liberty movement.
Antiwar.com is just one of many blogs and publications targeted by our illegitimate criminal government for promoting peace and reconciliation. The FBI is a terrorist organization that must be brought to justice. Everyone should demand a pubic accounting of the FBI’s criminal actions and blatant disregard for individual rights.
Replace the word ‘Socialists’ with ‘Peace Activists’ in this poem and then consider its relevance to our society today.
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out —
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out —
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out —
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.
– MARTIN NIEMÖLLER
And while we are on the subject of the FBI, listen to this former agent’s testimony and decide for yourself just who the real terrorists are.
