Living in an Imperial World: The Trap Is Nearly Finished
As seen on David's War on Guns, please read this article from Wired on the proliferation of "intelligence centers", funded by more than $130 million in Fed grants (i.e., your taxpayer dollars) to local and state law enforcement agencies.
...Homeland Security Under Secretary Charlie Allen, formerly of the CIA, described how sharing threat assessments, and even the occasional raw intel, with the new fusion centers marks a cultural shift from the Cold War era. Back then, spies treated everyone, other departments and agencies included, as suspicious.
"Things have changed remarkably in Washington. We are talking to each other," Allen said Tuesday. "I am from the shadows of the CIA where in the Cold War, we followed a different model. That model does not apply for the kinds of threats we have today that are borderless. The threats are so different and so remarkably dangerous for our citizens."
The fifty or so U.S. fusion centers are where the federal, state and local cops share intelligence, sift data for clues, run down reports of suspicious packages and connect dots in an effort to detect and thwart terrorism attacks, drug smuggling and gang fighting...
Look at this report and interactive map from the ACLU.
Is there any doubt in your mind - any doubt at all - that armed, trained, activist, irreconcilable American gun owners are to be targeted as part of the fusion centers' "all crimes, all hazards" mission?
Especially during the upcoming reign of President-elect Barack Hussein Obama and his filibuster-proof Democratic Congress?
Y'all think about those ground truths and what they will mean to you and yours, as the orchestra takes us out.
Use the remaining days and weeks wisely.
And stay away from the ACME gear.
