You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet.
What purpose can be served by a document that classifies mainstream Americans as "extremists" who pose a clear and present danger to our nation's security?
"It is a manipulative information tool intended to paint the loyal opposition as reactionary kooks who are prone to violence and a danger to the country. ... This is part of a more widespread ongoing information campaign to plant and reinforce critical themes into the American official, and broader public psyche, a continuation of the 'clinging to guns and religion' message so frequently found in the rhetoric of President Obama and his acolytes."
And Fairchok concludes by issuing a very somber warning.
"And we ain't seen nothin' yet."
But what is even more disturbing is that DHS NEVER intended the public to see this so-called security assessment. It was a secret.
"Obviously recognizing that public knowledge of the nonsense alleged in this document is very undesirable, the weirdoes who prepared it did not want you to see it. ... They warn: 'No portion of the LES (Law Enforcement Sensitive) information should be released to the media, the general public, or over non-secure Internet servers.'"
Judge Napolitano again:
"The document itself cautions the reader that the document is 'not to be released to the public, the media, or other personnel who do not have a valid need-to-know without prior approval' of the DHS. The document refers to itself as one of a series of intelligence assessments intended to 'deter, prevent, preempt, or respond to terrorist attacks against the United States.'"
But there's even more.
Are you ready for this?
The portion of this so-called security assessment that was leaked is only a SUMMARY.
The bulk of it remains CLASSIFIED. We have no idea what's in it.
Judge Napolitano continues:
"The summary (unclassified) document is terrifying. One can only imagine what is contained in the classified version. This document runs directly counter to numerous U.S. Supreme decisions prohibiting the government from engaging in any activities that could serve to chill the exercise of expressive liberties. Liberties are chilled, in constitutional parlance, when people are afraid to express themselves for fear of government omnipresence, monitoring, or reprisals. The document also informs the reader that Big Brother is watching both public and private behavior."
But whatever else is in there... it cannot be pretty.
Judge Napolitano yet again:
"My guess is that the sentiments revealed in the report I read are the tip of an iceberg that the DHS would prefer to keep submerged until it needs to reveal it. This iceberg is the heavy-hand of government; a government with large and awful eyes, in whose heart there is no love for freedom, and on whose face there is no smile."
