FBI warns of threat from anti-government 'extremists'

"WASHINGTON - Anti-government extremists opposed to taxes and regulations pose a growing threat to local law enforcement officers in the United States, the FBI warned on Monday.
These extremists, sometimes known as "sovereign citizens," believe they can live outside any type of government authority, FBI agents said at a news conference."

People have been calling Alex Jones a nutjob for years. I guess they realize now they are the nutjob :)

Our government is about to unleash a tyranny on the american people.

Coming soon to a theater near you!!

An action packed adventure as Sovereign Citizens unite to reign terror on America by politely asking for freedom and liberty! Can these monsters succeed? Or will the men in black once again prevail and save them from themselves?? Stay tuned for more clips from this blockbuster drama/horror/comedy.

Wow, 18 whole arrests of

Wow, 18 whole arrests of members of this violent and psychopathic group of people in 2010 and 18 more in 2011! I can't believe the FBI waited this long to warn the American people of this widespread threat. Thank god the NDAA has passed and the military can round these terrorists up soon and protect the public from their endless, unprovoked attacks.

“Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.” -George Bernard Shaw

I knew this would happen

As this movement grows larger it will create problems for everyone until they make immediate efforts to clean up this mess and get this question in front of the Supreme Court. Like yesterday would be good. They have a legitimate argument but they also created some issues that may hurt all of us. Soon many different titles will be added the label "Extremist" because of this.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Too Funny

If the government was not so anti-American maybe Americans would be less anti-government

Exactly was is the threat

Exactly was is the threat from these people against the security of this nation...!? NOTHING...!!!

Ron needs to point this out in on a national stage and make the FBI and Fed Gov. look like the bullies they are...!

This is scary. This is how

This is scary. This is how they make the transition from 'concerned citizen' to 'domestic terrorist' and bypass our system of representation altogether.

1) Fight terrorism by passing strict legislation including domestic surveillance and even indefinite detention without warrant or trial - but only for those deemed 'terrorists' by the authorities.

2) Label those who disagree with you politically on issues such as economic policy and taxation as 'anti-government extremists'

3) Make the connection between these purported "anti-government extremists" and "domestic terrorists", immediately squashing any organized opposition to these government policies.

I would never dream of taking violent action against a fellow American or against my government in any way - but it certainly sounds like someone would like you to believe that I would based solely upon my thoughts on taxation and sound money.

This is like saying 'anti-government extremists prefer the color blue. White color crime convictions among people who like the color blue has increased by 8 in one year. Clearly these statistics tell us we should target anyone who likes the color blue.' WTF?

I once had a conversation

with the FBI Regional Bureau Chief back in the 1990s, during the "hot" period right after Waco and Ruby Ridge.
He and a contingent of his agents decided to come down and "interview" us, since we were running the State Militia at the time, and it was the 3rd largest militia group in the US.

So, he said to us, "We're just concerned that some of you guys might go off half-cocked, and hurt somebody".

Then I looked him right in the eye and said, "We were just thinking the same thing about you. But, we haven't burned-down any churches full of people, or head-shot any unarmed women holding their babies, lately. But YOU have. And we are going to protect ourselves, and none of that is going to happen around here."

They left.
Needless to say, I'm on every list that the gov't ever made, probably twice, just so they're sure.
Don't be afraid of these people. You have right on your side, and stand up for it.

More propaganda targeting

More propaganda targeting liberty-valuing citizens, trying to make us out to be terrorists.

Extreme is as extreme does... and we have the most extreme despotic government in US history.

We ARE a threat to the criminals that are trying to rob us of our wealth and our freedoms. This is a good thing.

Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy. -Ron Paul 7/10/03

Here's another article based on the same press conferences

FBI focused on 'sovereign citizen' extremists

URL: www.boston.com/news/nation/washington/articles/2012/02/06/fb...

The FBI as usual needs their press release corrected:

These extremists, sometimes known as "sovereign citizens," believe they can live outside any type of DELEGATED government authority

Now FBI please tell us are we right or wrong? You never seem to clarify your questions. This is just propaganda to brainwash the public that ASSUMES you DO have to live INSIDE government AUTHORITY.

We believe we have to live under the law and be honorable. How dare you attempt to program people any longer that PUBLIC SERVANTS are AUTHORITY FIGURES. You should be ashamed of yourselves. You are just trying to incite a violent revolution and silence folks like me so that the American people don't start having conversations like this and come to the conclusion your lofty government perks and bonuses are obsolete and abhorrent to freedom.

The threat to any law enforcement is their own stupidity that they feel they have some right to be up in everybody's business. If people mind their own business that's no problem. Leave people alone and there's no need to scare people about threats with this fear-mongering and mis-leading BS.

If you guys actually took out a constitution and read it - especially the bill of rights (start there in fact) - and realized how far down the road we already are to outright slavery (state controlled population) - then you will realize that safety means nothing without freedom... you are killing America for a nice paycheck in a bad economy without respect to what kind of country your own children will be living in...

Shame on You.

Oh Boy, those folks that know the truth about

the fraud and the bankruptcy in 1933 are starting to clog up the courts, we better run a nation wide add scaring the newcomers who are learning that the IRS is FRAUD to detour them before too many of them wake up and pull back the curtain on our secret con.

These "sovereign citizens" are costing us BIG money. We want to steal their money easily and they are messing up the whole scheme ... RUN AN ADD ON TV NOW AND SCARE THEM INTO SUBMISSION BEFORE TOO MANY OF THEM WAKE UP !!!!

Here's a tip for all you "tax protesters":

Go check out http://www.rodclass.com and learn that these fraudsters are bringing you into the UNITED STATES District Court instead of the "district court of the United States" by use of a word game and trickery on the court documents so they can change jurisdiction and you can't bust their ass on PROCEDURES they are supposed to be following, but are NOT!

Start listening to his radio shows on talkshoe.com and look for "AIB RADIO". He has shows usually Tues and Friday evenings. Go listen to the archives over the past few months and get yourself an education.

You can also get a copy of the "IRS Agents Secret Handbook" that Rod and his team uncovered.

These thieving bastards can't stand an educated populace and are using scare tactics to thwart those that are waking up to their fraud.

Tax Protesters? That's some funny chit right there. How about folks who know you're stealing their money and are fighting back? That sounds much more logical to me, but you won't hear that on FOX.

No one minds paying their fair share of legal taxes owed; it's when you're stealing 40% of their check every month that people start to investigate the matters further and figure out all is not what it seems. They start investigating and a light bulb comes on, and inside that little bulb is five BIG BLACK LETTERS that spell FRAUD.

If these "sovereign citizens" ever figure out we're stealing their money and the courts are helping us, we're in big trouble; better start running them nationwide ads again to slow down the court filings ..... lol

The truth will set you free.

Our founders were extremists

Dr.Ron Paul's 2002 Predictions

I wonder which group is more extreme

Sovereign citizens or a police state Federal government?
I don't know any sovereign citizens so I can't make an accurate comparison, darn!
But if I just look at the statistics 100,000 Sovereign citizens VS 3,007,938 Federal Employees ( source http://www2.census.gov/govs/apes/10fedfun.pdf and the FBI statement in the Reuters article.) it looks like the Police State is by far and away the bigger problem, just saying,

Lord help us! 18 in 2010 AND

Lord help us! 18 in 2010 AND 2011?!?!? They had best get a crack-down on these extremist hooligans. We could maybe have even 20 in 2012!

Are we bankrupt?

I thought that was coming soon....did I miss it?

This is a joke...right?

What in the heckl is a "sovereign citizen"? I know about sovereign states but sovereign citizens?? Do they wear a button that says "I AM A SOVEREIGN CITIZEN"? Are we supposed to dance to the post office and laugh when we send in our income tax underpayment check??

"Legal convictions of such extremists, mostly for white-collar crimes such as fraud, have increased from 10 in 2009 to 18 each in 2010 and 2011, FBI agents said."
Are they talking about 90% of Congress with their insider trading? Oops, can't be them, they weren't convicted.

This has to be a joke....great material for Jon Stewart

One of the soverign citizens interviewed.

In case someone would like to read a little more about one of them.

90 days Iran article?

Were you talking about the Iran in 90 days article? He is stating that the reason for attacking Iran is because they were going to sell oil to India for ONLY gold, no fiat money and that the world banks, US, EU and new world order can not let this happen. Here's the article....great read and it is very possible that he is correct. He even talks about a false flag happening in the straits to set it off.


Oh no..

Just giving you a link to a guy that was in the 60 minutes video.

He's a big wig in the "sovereign citizen movement"

I thought maybe people would be interested in finding more out about the person, that's all. Supposedly he doesn't pay taxes.. He speaks out against the government sorta an unofficial "spokespersons" for SC.

The link I thought you were talking about is awesome!

I realize now that I gave you a link to a story about Ponetta

The person I was hoping others would learn more about was the writer of the blog.

...every so often they drag this "sovereign citizen" stuff out and it has the same descriptions and warnings in it.

This junk went around after the Ruby Ridge massacre, Waco and Ok City.

Then some nobody named "J.J. MacNab" (oh come on- is that really his name..."J.J" MacNAB?!) claims there's 100,000 people in "the movement".

Yeah, right.

How about a different approach and say, "Prior to 9/11 no one wore camouflage...but since the crime event camouflage is the fashion statement!" A conspiracy!!!
