'Fusion Centers' Expand Criteria to Identify Militia Members

Do you like Ron Paul or oppose abortion? You may be a member of a militia, according to a new report by a government information collection agency.

If you're an anti-abortion activist, or if you display political paraphernalia supporting a third-party candidate or a certain Republican member of Congress, if you possess subversive literature, you very well might be a member of a domestic paramilitary group.

That's according to "The Modern Militia Movement," a report by the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC), a government collective that identifies the warning signs of potential domestic terrorists for law enforcement communities.

"Due to the current economical and political situation, a lush environment for militia activity has been created," the Feb. 20 report reads. "Unemployment rates are high, as well as costs of living expenses. Additionally, President Elect Barrack [sic] Obama is seen as tight on gun control and many extremists fear that he will enact firearms confiscations."

MIAC is one of 58 so-called "fusion centers" nationwide that were created by the Department of Homeland Security, in part, to collect local intelligence that authorities can use to combat terrorism and related criminal activities. More than $254 million from fiscal years 2004-2007 went to state and local governments to support the fusion centers, according to the DHS Web site.

During a press conference last week in Kansas City, Mo., DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano called fusion centers the "centerpiece of state, local, federal intelligence-sharing" in the future.

"Let us not forget the reason we are here, the reason we have the Department of Homeland Security and the reason we now have fusion centers, which is a relatively new concept, is because we did not have the capacity as a country to connect the dots on isolated bits of intelligence prior to 9/11," Napolitano said, according to a DHS transcript.

"That's why we started this.... Now we know that it's not just the 9/11-type incidents but many, many other types of incidents that we can benefit from having fusion centers that share information and product and analysis upwards and horizontally."

But some say the fusion centers are going too far in whom they identify as potential threats to American security.

People who supported former third-party presidential candidates like Texas Rep. Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin and former Georgia Rep. Bob Barr are cited in the report, in addition to anti-abortion activists and conspiracy theorists who believe the United States, Mexico and Canada will someday form a North American Union.

"Militia members most commonly associate with 3rd party political groups," the report reads. "It is not uncommon for militia members to display Constitutional Party, Campaign for Liberty or Libertarian material."

Other potential signals of militia involvement, according to the report, are possession of the Gagsden "Don't Tread on Me" flag or the widely available anti-income tax film "America: Freedom to Fascism."

Barr, the 2008 Libertarian Party presidential nominee, told FOXNews.com that he's taking steps to get his name removed from the report, which he said could actually "dilute the effectiveness" of law enforcement agencies.

"It can subject people to unwarranted and inappropriate monitoring by the government," he said. "If I were the governor of Missouri, I'd be concerned that law enforcement agencies are wasting their time and effort on such nonsense."

Barr said his office has received "several dozen" complaints related to the report.

Mary Starrett, communications director for the Constitution Party, said Baldwin, the party's 2008 presidential candidate, was "outraged" that his name was included in the report.

"We were so astounded by it we couldn't believe it was real," Starrett told FOXNews.com. "It's painting such a large number of people with a broad brush in a dangerous light."

Michael German, national security policy counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union, said the report "crosses the line" and shows a disregard for civil liberties.

"It seems to implicate people who are engaging in First Amendment protected activities and suggest that something as innocuous as supporting a political candidate for office would mean that you're harboring some ill-intent," German told FOXNews.com. "It's completely inappropriate."

German, who claims the number of fusion centers nationwide is closer to 70, said the centers present several troubling concerns, including their excessive secrecy, ambiguous lines of authority, the use of data mining and military participation.

"No two are alike," German said. "And these things are expanding rapidly."

But MIAC officials defended their report, saying it's not a basis for officers to take enforcement action.

"These reports sometimes mention groups or individuals who are not the subject of the document, but may be relevant to describing tendencies or trends concerning the subject of the document," MIAC said in a statement.

"For example, a criminal group may use a particular wire service to transfer funds, but the mention of that wire service does not imply that it is part of that group, or a criminal enterprise.

Nor does it imply that all individuals who use that service are engaged in criminal activity."
The statement continues, "We are concerned about the mischaracterizations of a document following its recent unauthorized release and we regret that any citizens were unintentionally offended by the content of the document."

Donny Ferguson, a spokesman for the Libertarian Party, said he was concerned by the report's "poor choice of words," among other things.

"Unfortunately it is so broadly worded it could be interpreted as saying millions of peaceful, law-abiding Americans are involved in dangerous activities. These mistakes happen and we hope Missouri officials will correct the report," Ferguson wrote in an e-mail. "The Libertarian Party promotes the common-sense policies of fiscal responsibility and social tolerance. We are the only party in America who makes opposition to initiating violence a condition of membership."

Bob McCarty, a St. Louis resident who blogged about the MIAC report, said he's afraid he may be targeted, since he's previously sold Ron Paul-related merchandise.

"[The report] described me, so maybe I need to get a gun and build a shack out in the woods," McCarty said facetiously. "It's certainly an attempt to stifle political thought, especially in Missouri. It definitely makes me pause, if nothing else. Maybe Missouri is just a test bed for squelching political thought."

ACLU officials blasted a Texas fusion center last month for distributing a "Prevention Awareness Bulletin" that called on law enforcement officers to report activities of local lobbying groups, Muslim civil rights organizations and anti-war protest groups.

Well,

Civl liberties are a thing of the past.

They are coming full force with "Socialism" to control your way to live.

This President embraces this "religion".

The reasoning behind this is simple. First off, Russian Communism was started by "Bankers" as an "Experiment" = Modernists. The experiment? To see how people lived under strict rule. You have to obey or else. Prison for the less offenders or least likely to commit the same offense or timid people who speak out against this kind of living. Death, physical torture, etc.. to those who are stern to them. In other words: You do not agree with their rules, forcefully speaking. Babylon, read Revelations the whole book, we live in Babylon, it is now being fully embraced by modernists, atheists, and all the other "isms".

But, this is what they say: "experiment", because they had 'past tense' now they do - whereas at that time they had no idea how people will truly respond to each situation. So there is a blanket rule which cannot be bent, nor is humane. Treated like blocks of stone. No Love, no kindness, no joy, no peace, you get the picture.

In this country we have abused freedom to the point that people complain about having a flake of dust or spec on your cake. You get the picture and the idea without me having to actually say each one.

Freedom has been spoiled to the point that it isn't freedom anymore when people complain about any thing. Not thankful, appreciative, grateful so forth. No love. No great Appreciation for having a piece of bread to eat, while countless children in third world countries starve to death at the age of 10 or less. God is True Justice, we have neglected Gods children in other regions or other fields.

So, what happens when people live for themselves? You learn nothing good to do for others.

WE All participated in this. None of us will escape the coming events. The good as well as the bad will suffer for our lack of appreciation, to help our neighbor. None of us. Even the best people.

May God truly have mercy on us all.

Mercy oh, Divine Mercy in my Soul, our souls, shine your graces your Love of Love to us ignorant foolish selfish people. Have Mercy oh, God our Father.

If My People will throw away their ways for My ways, I will heal the land. Prayer and Sacrifice of soul, flesh, life of this earth for, souls to come to Me and Live.

Peace in Christ

Missouri retracts report linking militias, 3rd party candidates

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The Missouri Highway Patrol this week retracted a controversial report on militia activity and will change how such reports are reviewed before being distributed to law enforcement agencies.

The Highway Patrol also will open an investigation into the origin of the report, which linked conservative groups with domestic terrorism and named former presidential candidates Ron Paul, Bob Barr and Chuck Baldwin.

The Highway Patrol’s announcement followed a news conference in which Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, a Republican, suggested putting the director of public safety on administrative leave and investigating how the report was produced.

The uproar revolves around a report released last month by the Missouri Information Analysis Center, a "fusion center" for local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to collaborate on domestic security issues. The report concerned militia movements in Missouri and across the U.S., and described how they had evolved over the last several years.

After reading many things in the past year, and not only having read these from other sources, I read words of revelation from God, that has the same words.

I have to conclude that everything written in the Bible is true and will come true. Without a doubt.

And because I was always asking the question, how will we know? how will we be directed? who will tell us?
It comes down to this: Trust in God 1000% not waivering, God is Father, Our Father, if His children are not reprobate but faithful, you will Hear His Voice, Daily.

So what do we do to hear Him and this word is very important with STRONG EMPHASIS :: CRYSTAL CLEAR ::

we have to empty our cups from the inside of all the things, other voices, that clutter the Temple.

Children, we should be about Our Fathers Business. Just as Jesus said to His Mother when He was debating the teachers of the Law at age 12. Don't you know I am doing my Fathers business? That I am about, my Fathers affairs?

I was going to hammer home on how much the sham governments are about "their" fathers business (Satan).

But, instead I am led to share, there are only two sources in this world: God and Satan.
Which father is yours? This is how you will know in real life who's father is who's. To tell the difference in Doctrines, Love or Hate. The Tree of Life or the 'Death culture', the 'Forbidden Fruit', 'Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.'

Tree of Life Christ - Wisdom
Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil - Education based on knowledge without understanding.

Wisdom teaches both knowledge and understanding, but not like the dead kind leaving you hungry, parched, dry, delirious. Wisdom is something to experience. To convert to. It takes all your will power to convert to. But for us Catholics who live daily in God, it is a bit easier to achieve. Not far from us. But right there in front, inside, ready to burst into Flavor.

Peace in Christ
