“the threat is real” – the threat is fake
“the threat is different” – the (fake) threat went from foreign terrorists to americans being terrorists. thus the airport scanners, walmart snitch programs, etc.
“the threat is constant” – the threat from the powers that be is constant, and devised to keep the fear level high to give them carte blanche to do as they please.
“the new rapidly evolving threat posed by ‘homegrown radicals’… american citizens – raised here, born here…”
who do they consider ‘homegrown radicals’? what rapidly evolving threat do they pose? and to whom?
homegrown radicals pose a threat to the agenda. Zbigniew Brzezinski fears the ‘massive global political awakening':
Brzezinski said: “For the first time in history almost all of humanity is politically activated, politically conscious and politically interactive.”
“Authorities suspect Awlaki helped mastermind last year’s Christmas Day underwear bombing plot in Detroit, and a recent scheme to blow up cargo planes travelling from Yemen to Europe and the United States.”
The underwear bomber Abdulmutallab was able to board only with the help of an unidentified well dressed man seen at the boarding gate:
“He’s an extremely dangerous man. He has shown a desire to harm the United States, a desire to strike the homeland of the United States,” Holder said.”
Awlaki is so dangerous that he dined with military brass after 911:
“Holder said that as a threat to the United States, Awlaki ranks right up there with Osama bin Laden.”
“Awlaki is believed to be in Yemen, but thanks to the Internet, his reach is global…”
“The ability to go into your basement, turn on your computer, find a site that has this kind of hatred spewed … they have an ability to take somebody who is perhaps just interested, perhaps just on the edge, and take them over to the other side,” he said.”
This is how the FCC got the Net Neutrality Passed, which just happened today:
“Turning to how terror suspects are tried, Holder said he still believes the “decision as to how people get prosecuted, where they get prosecuted, is an executive branch function. Even if those suspects are being held now at Guantanamo Bay. Holder said Congress should not be interfering with that.”
“What Wikileaks did, at the end of the day, was harmful to American security, put American agents and properties … at risk … and I think for arrogant and misguided reasons,” he said.”
