Attorney General Lynch was on five network shows on Sunday. The last time this happened was Susan Rice spinning the Benghazi video lie. So indeed, what the regime has in mind is editing out the reality of the 9-11 calls. Any mention that the terrible killing of 49 people was an Islamic terrorist. The office of propaganda is in full swing to focus on guns, guns and guns. We have been set up earlier with stories that the right is as dangerous, thus when the government comes knocking at your door it will be more than Islamic terrorists they will be after. First an earlier post, then at the end I will throw in a couple of earlier posts as examples.
West Point Think Tank warns of dangerous “Conservatives”
The report issued this week by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., is titled “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.” And just who are these “Violent Far-Right” folks?
It says anti-federalists “espouse strong convictions regarding the federal government, believing it to be corrupt and tyrannical, with a natural tendency to intrude on individuals’ civil and constitutional rights. Finally, they support civil activism, individual freedoms, and self government. Extremists in the anti-federalist movement direct most their violence against the federal government and its proxies in law enforcement.”
The report also draws a link between the mainstream conservative movement and the violent “far right,” and describes liberals as “future oriented” and conservatives as living in the past.
“The far right represents a more extreme version of conservatism, as its political vision is usually justified by the aspiration to restore or preserve values and practices that are part of the idealized historical heritage of the nation or ethnic community.”
What will put you on the list:
1. Posting things the government doesn’t like onto social media.
Tweeting and posting to Facebook could contribute to getting oneself landed on the no-fly list. According to the 2013 document:
“[P]ostings on social media sites… should not be discounted merely because of the manner in which it was received.”
As the Huffington Post notes, the document contains language to protect Americans “engaging solely in constitutionally protected activities,” meaning that one can freely express themselves, pending no other suspicions.
2. Someone thinks that you are a terrorist — or maybe just does not like you.
If a fellow American so chooses, that individual can submit names they deem to be suspicious, which the federal government must consider until they can determine the legitimacy of the tipster.
3. The government made a mistake.
The federal government is not perfect, and can often make mistakes. Sometimes, those mistakes have resulted in lawsuits.
4. You have the same name as a potential terrorist.
5. Traveling the globe.
If an American likes to travel to exotic locations, they too can be placed on the no-fly list. Areas of the planet that are particularly rife with terrorist activities set off red flags, which can complicate one’s good standing in air travel.
While the average American doesn’t travel to terrorist-heavy countries, many immigrants wish to visit family members. In addition, some professions require overseas travel to dangerous parts of the world, such as journalists and government contractors.

Posting that may be of interest:
The Social Security Administration has announced the details of a new rule that would bar many receiving federal disability payments from owning firearms.
“The Social Security Administration’s proposal doesn’t require an individual to be adjudicated mentally defective or to pose a risk to himself or others,” Lars Dalesiede, a NRA spokesman, said. “Instead they are set to strip away your constitutional rights just because you meet a set of criteria established by a group of faceless bureaucrats you’ll never meet. That puts thousands of Americans in the terrible position of choosing whether to pay their bills or give up their constitutional rights.”
The group called the president’s push for the new rule “embarrassing and shameful.”
The Obama administration quietly released a press statement,
The Department of Justice is proposing to change rules for the federal background check system to clarify who under U.S. law is prohibited from possessing a firearm because of mental health problems.
…..confirming President Obama will be signing two new executive actions defining who can buy a gun based on mental health issues.
Earlier this year, the State of New York used similar mental health regulations to classify anxiety as a mental health issue. Because of that, anyone who has ever reported feeling anxious could be at risk of losing their 2nd amendment rights. In fact, there are already a number of cases making their way through the court system in New York, where people actually lost their rights because they were prescribed anti-anxiety medications.
Since almost 25% of the population now takes anti-anxiety / depression medications, almost a quarter of the country could be at risk of being labeled mentally unfit to own a firearm, if these same policies take hold at a federal level.
They’ve already started going after Vets with these regulations.
