Department of Justice Shifting Focus from International Terrorism to Domestic Extremists

According to The United States Justice Department, the threat of Radical Islam pales in comparison to homegrown extremists – specifically white anti-government types and right-wing extremists.

Washington with Flag

In an effort to combat what the DOJ is calling “homegrown terror threats,” the federal agency has created a new national security position that will focus on extremism inside the United States – unfortunately, this position will not be looking into Islamic extremism, because apparently the Obama administration doesn’t see it as a major threat.

John Carlin, head of the DOJ national security division, announced the new Domestic Terrorism Counsel at a speech Wednesday at George Washington University.

“…in order to ensure that we are gaining the benefits of the information and input from those eyes on the ground from around the country, and in recognition of a growing number of potential domestic terrorism matters around the United Sates, we have created a new position to assist with our important work in combating domestic terrorism,” Carlin said, according to his prepared remarks.”

“We recognize that, over the past few years, more people have died in this country in attacks by domestic extremists than in attacks associated with international terrorist groups” … “Among domestic extremist movements active in the United States, white supremacists are the most violent. The Charleston shooter, who had a manifesto laying out a racist world-view, is just one example,” Carlin said, before also noting killings by white supremacists in Kansas and Wisconsin.

“White supremacists post to social media, and studies now posit that mass killings are contagious. Violence begets violence, and through the power of the internet, a meeting hall is no longer needed. Formal organizational structures are unnecessary. Connections are made, and messages spread, through the push of a button”

While he briefly mentioned the threat posed by groups like ISIS, he said his department is focused on racist and anti-government ideologies, and suggested that those ideologies posed a greater threat to the United States than radical Islam.

He went on to say, that “law enforcement agencies nationwide are concerned about the growth of the “sovereign citizen” movement.” The government is taking the threat so seriously, that they have been using actors to portray sovereign citizens and so-called right-wing extremists as theoretical threats in a number of large-scale training drills.

Are these people Delusional?

I guess none of this should really be that shocking to anyone; after all, during the first 2015 Democrat presidential debate the candidates all agreed that Global Warming was the biggest threat to our national security – yep, global warming!

So while ISIS threatens to unleash a nuclear holocaust on the United States, the Obama administration and every one of the Democrat presidential candidates wants you to believe that the real threats are coming from global warming, right-wing extremists, and those evil NRA gun owners.

Instead of focusing on the very real threat posed by ISIS and other radical Islamic groups, the Obama administrations is busy demonizing anyone who disagrees with the government through their surrogates in the media.

Prior to the DOJ announcement, left-wing media outlets went into overdrive pushing the narrative that Right-Wing extremists have killed more people than radical Islam. And let’s not forget President Obama’s order to the press earlier this month, instructing them to release propaganda showing how gun owners were a bigger threat to the country than terrorism.

Homegrown Extremism a Bigger Threat than Islamic Terrorism?

Are there crazy people out there? Of course there are; and I might be willing to take these idiots in Washington seriously, if it wasn’t so blatantly obvious what they are trying to do.

How can you dismiss the threat of radical Islam while at the same time claiming right-wing politics are somehow to blame for breading mass murdering psychopaths? And what about left-wing extremism; where’s the focus on that? After all, it was a radical left-wing extremist who killed two reporters live on television in August of 2015.

And what about Democrat controlled cities like Chicago that are overrun by violent criminals and gangs? Where is the Department of Justice on that? Week after week, dozens of people are killed on the streets of Chicago, yet nothing is being done to stop the street gangs. Are they not a form of extremism?

Earlier this year, 56 people were shot in a single weekend in Chicago. But shockingly that’s actually pretty routine for the city; in fact, it’s actually a low number compared to some weeks in Chicago.

In 2014, over the July 4th Holiday weekend, 82 people were shot during a 48 hour period. No press conference from President Obama, no speeches from the Department of Justice, and not a single democratic presidential candidate calling for taking guns away from radical gang members. Yet every time you get some wackjob shooting up a gun-free zone, every one of these people is tripping over themselves to get to the mic so they can blame the NRA and Right-wing extremists.

There is no doubt this country has a problem with violence, but to ignore where the bulk of this violence is coming from shows exactly what the real agenda is. If they really wanted to get rid of gun violence, they know where to look; unfortunately, it’s not a problem they care to admit exists or deal with.

    Who cares anymore? Seriously, do you want to save America? I don’t want to destroy it, but I sure as heck wouldn’t lift a finger to defend it either. EX: I went to the zoning office today to start the paperwork to get a permit to put in a metal car port over my driveway. Mind you, just a typical metal cover, no walls, electrical outlets, or water lines. Damn, you would think I was getting a permit for a Nuclear Waste Dump. Piss on this country in its current condition. That goes for the flag too. Land of the free, home of the paper pushers. There has to be a viable exit out of society. There just has to be.

      I agree! Try changing your deck in Tahoe. You need your property surveyed, a soil test, Topo, then the engineered stamped drawings. Oh, they also come out for the added sum of $5k to do a site survey. Then you can apply for a permit and then if you have any money left you take out a loan to buy the materials.

    Im a prepper. My parents were, and their parents were pioneers. So i get the flow of information that comes up on these sites.

    First let me say be critical of what you here, because it seems if your a prepper you by that notion must take all things liberal as satens lies.

    That’s idiotic.

    Global warming is the root of the greatest threat to security. It may not have been spelled out to you but here is why….

    Impoverished and developing nations in places where islam has its roots are just people trying to find a way to eat and function. Global climate change is diverting what they know for centuries in farming and weather. This crops fail, unexpected storms are destroying their way of life. Syria is failing due to a water shortage, and government favortism has placed the poor there outside the water diversion.

    This is happening everywhere.

    The result when you are desperate?

    Look at the Nazis.

    Some bastard comes along and says…hey follow me! The reason life is shit is because ..this guy…or that country…or god wants this to happen that’s why he is punishing this country..

    Soon you have desperate people strapping on bombs and blowing up western civilized towns.

    You cant stop it when it reaches that level. They already have decided to die for their cause.

    You have to address the starting issue.

    That is climate change.

      You have apparently bought into the liberal line that the outpouring of violence is rooted in some social malaise… guess you haven’t done any real homework yet, but there is still hope. Hope on my side, that you might study Islam for yourself, and discover the actual reason why people strap bombs onto themselves and go out to murder/maim those who don’t believe as they do. It’s very real, and it’s very different from what you believe. The other hope comes from those who believe that jihad is the path of righteousness… they hope you continue believing as you do, that you don’t try to educate yourself as to their worldview, because if you did, you might become part of the only possible solution that has any chance of success… keep the fight in their own lands. That cannot be accomplished with a preponderance of folk believing as you currently do. I fervently hope you educate yourself and as many of your like-believing friends as you can…it’s the only possible way the jihad will ever be stopped in this, or any other land. Unless, of course, you suddenly become enamored of the possibilities a nuclear holocaust might open up…..

      Um, you are aware that NASA has been monkeying with the data for years, specifically by lowering the temperature records for the 1930s to make today’s temperatures look higher on graphs; and you are aware that temperature stations around the country have had to be relocated because they were poorly sited, like next to parking lots; and you are aware that European glaciers have been receding since the 1800s because that was when the planet finally began warming after the Little Ice Age; and you are aware that the Medieval Warm Period, when the Vikings grew wheat in Greenland, was warmer than it is today; and you are aware that twice now emails have been leaked that document a clear and disturbing pattern of collusion by the warming camp to suppress information and keep papers by skeptics out of technical journals; that Kevin Trenbreth of the NCAR actually admitted “We can’t account for the lack of warming, and it’s a travesty that we can’t,” right?

      Global temperatures have not warmed in 17 years, since 1998 (during a visit to Australia to deliver a lecture at Deakin University in February 2013, the UN’s climate change chief, Rajendra Pachauri, acknowledged the 17-year pause in global temperature rises, confirmed by Britain’s Met Office, but said it would need to last “30 to 40 years at least” to break the long-term global warming trend), yet CO2 has continued on its upward trajectory.

      Many scientists (US, Russian, Danish, and more) are watching the Sun and are calling for a Maunder Minimum, which was stinking cold. For 400 years, starting with Galileo, astronomers have watched the sunspots as they form and disappear on the Sun’s surface. During the coldest periods (the Maunder Minimum 1640-1680, the Dalton Minimum 1790-1830, a smaller minimum from 1880-1915, and a very little one from 1945-1977), there were few to no sunspots.

      We are in Sunspot Cycle 24. Originally, during Cycle 23, observers thought Cycle 24 was going to mimic Cycle 4, which occurred during the Dalton Minimum. However, three years ago, the National Solar Observatory published three separate reports stating that the sunspots are going to hit a low and may disappear altogether. 400 years of observation reveal a clear pattern: fewer sunspots, colder temperatures; more sunspots, warmer temperatures.

      We could get into a whole discussion of the AMO (Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation and the PDO (the Pacific Decadal Oscillation) and how they affect temperature, but enough is enough. CO2 does not drive temperature (some indications are that temperature drives CO2 levels with an 800 year lag). After several years of very changeable weather, the planet is going to slide into a very cold period. One Russian paper calls for a Maunder-type minimum (as does Don Easterbrook, professor emeritus of geology at Western Washington University and expert on the glaciers in the Cascades, especially Mt. Baker) starting in 2020 and lasting until at least 2040. Better get your long johns ready.

    Not once, ever, have I heard Palestians, bin laden, zawahiri or ANY other 7th Century savage mention “global warming” as the reason killing us . It only comes from fraudsters like Obama, left-wing loonies like this so-called “son of a prep per” and Dennis Kucinich wannabes. Take your global warming scam and stick it where the sun don’t shine

      OK, i’ll agree that the temp has gone up a little,, but if you look back at weather history it is a normal 100 year cycle that is causing the rise, not the end of the world.

    Virtually every respected scientist on the planet acknowledges climate change to to man made influence from the dawn of the industrial revolution.

    This is what makes me think at the eotwawki we are fucked because most of the preppers are to busy buying bullshit propoganda invented by right wing corporate assholes.

    It will be left to a handful of actual critical thinkers that prepped, but they will also be over run because there wont be enough of us to hold off the sheeple.

    Scientists and weather:
    Tesla invented a machine that shook into a mini earth quake. We have Harp. Planes that cause clouds and rainfall.
    So if man is causing changes, maybe it is not coming from your tail pipe.
    Of course it could be the jolly green giant farts.

    Crop failure. India farmers commiting suicide. GMO and Monsanto. Maybe bad farts aren’t the only problem. But back to white supremacists, would you consider the slavery trade a little bit white supremacist, because I read that the Monsanto family were the biggest slave traders in Louisiana. Do your own documentation. I don’t have references to back up the claim. I’m just passing on something I read. I want to know if it is true myself. I also think the GMO food is insanely dangerous to the health of the planet. The insects who eat GMO’s stomachs burst. Sounds like a psychotic genocidal botanist from a B movie.

      The slave trade was actually instituted in Africa when black tribes actually captured and sold their own people to European traders…it was not the white European Supremacists that you so easy spit out as fact…the true source and profit of black slavery started and still exists in Africa…also it was actually Democrats that wanted and fought for slavery to continue in America…the Repulican Party…aka…the North fought and won freedom for the black people in America…yet the nitwit Democrats still spew hatred toward the Republicans who fought for their freedoms…the dumbing down of America has truly hit a new low and most have forgotten or refuse to revisit history…
