Justice Department will place new emphasis on home-grown violent extremism committed by so-called ‘right wing’ attackers.
Just two weeks after it announced a plan to globalize local police departments through the “Strong Cities Network,” the Obama administration has added a new tool in its fight against “violent extremism.”
The new position at the Justice Department, dubbed the “domestic terrorism counsel,” will serve as the main point of contact for U.S. attorney offices nationwide and will identify trends across cases, help shape strategy and “analyze legal gaps that need to be closed,” said Assistant Attorney General John Carlin.
“I’m sure it’s gun laws,” said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, another watchdog agency. Fitton says the Justice Department is teaming up with the Southern Poverty Law Center to “go after” the Obama administration’s political enemies while downplaying the threat of Islamic terrorism on U.S. soil.
In fact, Justice officials have indicated these home-grown “right wingers” are possibly more numerous and dangerous than the jihadists.
Fitton said the move marks the continuation of Obama’s legacy of targeting conservatives in memos that have come down from the FBI and Homeland Security through the years. The memos have targeted military veterans, gun owners and tea-party activists, all of whom are viewed as potential terrorists worthy of being watched.
Whitehead, author of “Battlefield America: The War on the American People,” said he believes the new czar over homegrown violent extremism will work in tandem with the Strong Cities Network announced late last month at the United Nations.
“It’s going to be coordinated somehow with the Strong Cities Network. What you’re going to see is, they’re going to federalize police across the country,” said Whitehead. “They’re already doing it. Ten federal agents have recently moved in to the Oakland Police Department, and they study social media, create algorithms, studying and creating profiles.”
As the Obama administration comes down to its final months in office, look for more brazen, racially charged steps that target law-abiding American citizens who express political views that don’t line up with those of the administration, Fitton said.
“This is going to become the vehicle through which the Justice Department can target those who oppose the Obama agenda,” he said. “This is a solution in search of a problem.”
‘A liberal fantasy’
“The fantasy of right-wing extremists trying to overthrow the government has always been a liberal fantasy,” Fitton said. “They write books off it. They make movies off it and raise money off it. Now they’re endorsing it as reality, and it’s truly frightening.”
By shifting resources away from international terrorist organizations and putting them into a new focus on domestic lone-wolf “extremists,” the Obama administration is sending a message to its enemies, Fitton said.
“The term ‘anti-government views’ ranges from Bernie Sanders to Donald Trump, in my estimation. When they talk about ‘racist views,’ are they talking about La Raza (The Race), or are they talking about people opposed to the immigration crisis at our border?”
“This is a leftist fantasy,” he continued. “If a totalitarian leftist had to write a description for a government operation to suppress his enemies, this would be it.”
“The government will be defining what extremism is. I’m going to write a letter to the Justice Department and ask them, ‘Can you please define it right now?’ Congress should already be asking this. Do we want to go back to those 2009 memos under Janet Napolitano where returning vets and anti-abortion activists were named as potential extremists to be watched?” he asked, referring to Obama’s former secretary of homeland security.
“So what Americans are facing here, these are bureaucrats making rules,” Whitehead said. “Congress is not voting on it. There is no representative government going on here. This is autocratic rule by oligarchy.”
Based on President Obama’s comments and the actions of his administration, Whitehead said he can only guess who will get slapped with the “extremist” label. It won’t be Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, who recently implored his followers to “stalk and kill” those white cops who have killed black suspects.
Will Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, who has openly called for his followers to ‘stalk’ and ‘ kill’ certain cops, be branded an “extremist” by Obama’s new czar?
“Anybody with a gun now, in my opinion, is an extremist, at least as viewed by this government,” Whitehead said. “You’re going to be watched. Be careful what you say on Facebook. The wrong kind of joke will put you on the extremist list, because the government agents – I will tell you this – they do not have a sense of humor.”
Whitehead said Google’s latest multi-million dollar contract from the National Security Agency is telling. Facebook is also used by the government.
He said Obama has pumped more than $100 million into the federal “smart cities” program, which will be run by advanced fusion centers or real-time crime centers.
“Once you enter a smart city, all your data will be downloaded from your cell phone without you knowing it. Facial recognition software-scanners will scan your face,” he said. “The big corporations all want this, and some banks are starting to use that already. So everything about you will be known. There will be no privacy left. You add to that drones and what they can do. Man, we live in an algorithm universe. We’re all data bits now.”
Fighting crime before it happens, Whitehead said the Strong Cities Network, announced by Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the United Nations on Sept. 30, will play a pivotal role but it will be subtle.
“They’re not stupid enough to dress up U.N. police in blue helmets. They’ll use local police,” he said. “The U.N. officials will move into the fusion centers and run it through Strong Cities Network. This is one big program you’re looking at, very large.”
The ultimate goal of the NSA is “total population control,” according to William Binney, the highest-level whistleblower to ever come out of the NSA. Binney, one of the agency’s leading code-breakers during the Cold War, made this statement at a conference in London in July 2014.
“They want to be able to predict future behaviors of all citizens,” Whitehead said.
And the administration has already admitted it is using behavioral psychologists to design federal programs in a way that subtly influences people’s behavior.
“So we’re dealing with an entity that has no idea about representative government. They’ve made up their mind who constitutes an extremist, and an extremist is a terrorist, an enemy of the state,” Whitehead said. “Veterans are already on the list, as are abortion activists, tea-party activists, constitutionalists.
“These are all things that should be debated openly, but now you’re having cities moving into U.N. programs, police being federalized and internationalized and now targeting their own people as enemies of the state,” he added.
Fitton said the Obama administration has effectively put certain groups “on notice” that they will be watched, and watched closely.
The SPLC has been paid more than $150 million in the past 20 years for advising law enforcement on socially conservative and libertarian “extremism.”
“If you don’t like gay marriage you go on their hate list,” he said. “Are supporters of traditional marriage going to be on this (new czar’s) list of suspects? We have an epidemic of cop killing across the country. Murder is up. Drug crimes are up. We have a president who has abused his powers, and what is the Justice Department doing? Looking for new ways of going after opponents of the president.”
