FBI Warns of ‘Anti-Government’ Extremists

At a Federal Bureau of Investigation conference on Monday, FBI agents said state and local law enforcement should be on alert for people who consider themselves “sovereign citizens,” individuals who believe they are not subject to any type of government authority.

According to Reuters, these anti-government extremists “may refuse to pay taxes, defy government environmental regulations and believe the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard.”

Routine encounters with police can turn violent “at the drop of a hat,” said Stuart McArthur, deputy assistant director in the FBI’s counterterrorism division.

“We thought it was important to increase the visibility of the threat with state and local law enforcement,” he said.

In May 2010, two West Memphis, Arkansas, police officers were shot and killed in an argument that developed after they pulled over a “sovereign citizen” in traffic.

Last year, an extremist in Texas opened fire on a police officer during a traffic stop. The officer was not hit.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Well, nothing new, the Right has always been more violent than the Left. The Left more argumentative. The Right always deal with money matter or property The left argues on silly social issue. That what makes the Republican candidate so funny taking on social issues they cannot handle. They keep mentioning the Constitution makes you wonder Which Constitution they read, argue about religious issue and pioneers freedom rights, wonder if they know the first immigrants fled because of Religious issues and wanted it separated, never hear them mention that reason the primary reason. Dictatorship is dictatorship right or left or religious. The present candidates are making perfect asses of themselves but what can they do with brainwashed ignorant people.

    …”endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, THAT WHENEVER ANY FORM OF GOVERNMENT BECOMES DESTRUCTIVE OF THESE ENDS, IT IS THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO ALTER OR ABOLISH IT, AND TO INSTITUTE NEW GOVERNMENT,…”-Declaration of Independence- It’s been time for awhile now to cut the head off the snake before Obama gets us nuked and institutes martial law: then, we’ll never be rid of him.

      “Obama gets us nuked?” where where you during Bush years? Why do you only see Obama as the snake? That alone invalidate your argument.

    It is ok to target Americans that believe in the Constitution and everything that built this country, but not ok to target muslims, their organizations that spout hate, obamas’ Reverend Wright, or Bill Ayers.
