Missouri State Police Think You And I Are Terrorists by Chuck Baldwin

Posted by soldierservant on May 21, 2009

This is interesting. Notice that this is not targeting republicans or
neocons because they are a part of the new world order. So all the phony
whining neocons with a martyr complex need to shut up and grow up. They
are all a part of the evil they are whining about. Every last one of
them are hypocrites. There is no hitlist for those on the right. It is
only for those who will not bow to either corrupt side. Those of us who
know the truth are the real threat. Those who worship the Beast and his
false sabbath are already his.

Thanks to a concerned Missouri state policeman, a nationally syndicated
radio talk show host stated that he was alerted last week to a secret
Missouri state police report that categorized supporters of Congressman Ron
Paul, Bob Barr, and myself as "’militia’ influenced terrorists."  The
report, he said, "instructs the Missouri police to be on the lookout for
supporters displaying bumper stickers and other paraphernalia associated
with the Constitutional, Campaign for Liberty, and Libertarian parties."

Ignoring the threat of Muslim terrorists, the Missouri Information Analysis
Center (MIAC) report focuses on the so-called "militia movement" and
"conflates it with supporters of Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, Bob Barr, the
so-called patriot movement and other political activist organizations
opposed to the North American Union and the New World Order."

This report is not original, of course. During the Clinton administration, a
Phoenix Federal Bureau of Investigation and Joint Terrorism Task Force
explicitly designated "defenders" of the Constitution as "right-wing
extremists." However, the MIAC report significantly expands on earlier
documents and is the first known document to actually name names.

According to the MIAC, opposition to world government, NAFTA, federalization
of the states, and restrictive gun laws are a potential threat to the
police. The MIAC report also refers to Aaron Russo’s film, "America: Freedom
to Fascism."

The story exposing the MIAC report states, "The MIAC report is particularly
pernicious because it indoctrinates Missouri law enforcement in the belief
that people who oppose confiscatory taxation, believe in the well-documented
existence of a New World Order and world government (a Google search of this
phrase will pull up numerous references made by scores of establishment
political leaders), and are opposed to the obvious expansion of the federal
government at the expense of the states as violent extremists who are
gunning for the police. It specifically targets supporters of mainstream
political candidates and encourages police officers to consider them
dangerous terrorists."

The Columbia Daily Tribune also carried the story last Saturday. It quoted
Missouri resident Tim Neal of Miller County. "When Neal read the report, he
couldn’t help but think it described him. A military veteran and a delegate
to the 2008 Missouri Republican state convention, he didn’t appreciate being
lumped in with groups like the Neo-Nazis.

"’I was going down the list and thinking, "Check, that’s me,"’ he said. ‘I’m
a Ron Paul supporter, check. I talk about the North American union, check.
I’ve got the "America: Freedom to Fascism" video loaned out to somebody
right now. So that means I’m a domestic terrorist? Because I’ve got a video
about the Federal Reserve?’"

The Tribune’s report also acknowledges, "The [MIAC] report’s most
controversial passage states that militia ‘most commonly associate with
third-party political groups’ and support presidential candidates such as
Ron Paul, former Constitutional [sic] Party candidate Chuck Baldwin and Bob
Barr, the Libertarian candidate last year."

The Tribune report also said, "Neal, who has a Ron Paul bumper sticker on
his car, said the next time he is pulled over by a police officer, he won’t
know whether it’s because he was speeding or because of his political
views."

I realize that there are people who will dismiss this kind of story as
insignificant. They shouldn’t. This is very serious and should be treated as
such. Anyone who knows anything at all about history knows that before a
state or national government can persecute–and commit acts of violence
against–a group of people, they must first marginalize the group from
society’s mainstream and categorize it as dangerous.

Rome did exactly that to Christians, as did Mao’s China; Hitler’s Germany
did the same thing to Jews; Stalin’s Russia did the same thing to political
dissenters, etc. That a State police agency in America would actually infer
that people who supported Ron Paul, Bob Barr, or myself in a political
campaign are somehow indistinguishable from violence-prone "militias" is
beyond insulting: it is a smear campaign, and might should even be regarded
as a hate crime!

Beyond that, the MIAC report paints with a very broad brush. In addition to
supporting Ron Paul, Bob Barr, or myself, a review of the report reveals
that opposition to any of the following risks someone being classified as a
potential "domestic terrorist":

The New World Order
The United Nations
Gun Control
The violation of Posse Comitatus
The Federal Reserve
The Income Tax
The Ammunition Accountability Act
A possible Constitutional Convention (Con Con)
The North American Union
Universal Service Program
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
Abortion on demand
Illegal Immigration

Again, if you oppose any of the above, or if you supported Ron Paul, Bob
Barr, or myself, you risk being labeled a "domestic terrorist," according to
the MIAC.

Do you not see how dangerous this kind of slanderous labeling can become? It
could affect your flight status when you try to board an airline. It could
affect your application for sensitive jobs. It could affect your
adjudication before a court or judge. It could make you a target for
aggressive law enforcement strategies. It could affect your being able to
obtain a passport. It could affect one’s ability to purchase a firearm or
receive a State concealed weapon permit.

This is very serious business! We are not talking about private opinions. We
are talking about law enforcement agencies. And remember, most law
enforcement agencies share these types of reports; therefore, how many other
state police agencies have similar reports floating around? Probably
several. Plus, how do we know that this report was not influenced by federal
police agencies? We don’t.

Rest assured, I do not plan to take this lying down. As one who is
personally named in the above report, I demand a public retraction and
apology from the MIAC and Missouri State Police. I can tell you that my
family is extremely distraught that their husband, father, and grandfather
would be labeled in such a manner. I am also not ruling out legal action. In
addition, I am discussing an appropriate response with Ron Paul and Bob
Barr. I will keep readers posted as to what comes of these discussions (as I
am at liberty to do so, of course).

In the meantime, I encourage everyone who believes in the freedom of speech
and who believes that the MIAC report is an egregious miscarriage of justice
to contact the appropriate Missouri police officials. Here is the contact
information:

And lest one thinks that none of this concerns him or her, I would like to
remind you of the lament of Martin Niemoeller back in the days of Hitler’s
Germany. Niemoeller was a decorated U-Boat Captain and pastor of great
distinction. An avid anti-communist, Niemoeller at first supported Hitler’s
rise to power and was hesitant to oppose the violations of civil rights
against various groups he personally found distasteful. It did not take
long, however, before Niemoeller realized that when laws protecting the
rights of all were removed from some, no one was safe–including him.
Unfortunately, he learned his lesson too late, as he, too, was persecuted
and imprisoned by Hitler’s State Police. Here is what Niemoeller said about
his indifference:

"They came first for the communists, and I did not speak up-
          because I was not a communist;
And then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak up-
          because I was not a trade unionist;
And then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak up-
          because I was not a Jew;
And then they came for me-
          and there was no one left to speak up."

So, those of you who think you have nothing to fear because you did not vote
for Ron Paul, Bob Barr, or me, or because you do not live in the State of
Missouri need to think again. As I have repeatedly said, we either have
freedom for all, or we have freedom for none. Truly, secret police reports
such as the one above threaten the liberties of us all.

So, will you speak up now or wait until they come for you and no one is left
to speak up?
