A recently published “lexicon” distributed to thousands of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) targets citizens concerned about their Second Amendment rights and the steady encroachment of the federal government, categorizing such as “militia extremists.”
The “lexicon,” marked Unclassified/For Official Use Only (FOUO), is dated November 10, 2011, and was sent out by email to law enforcement and homeland security agencies on November 14 by LaJuan E. Washington of the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis.
We have exclusively posted the DHS “lexicon” here.
Its definition of “militia extremists” states:
(U//FOUO) Groups or individuals who facilitate or engage in acts of violence directed at federal, state, or local government officials or infrastructure in response to their belief that the government deliberately is stripping Americans of their freedoms and is attempting to establish a totalitarian regime. These individuals consequently oppose many federal and state authorities’ laws and regulations, (particularly those related to firearms ownership), and often belong to armed paramilitary groups. They often conduct paramilitary training designed to violently resist perceived government oppression or to violently overthrow the US Government. (Page 2 of 3, emphasis added)
So what drives militia extremism according to DHS now is “belief that the government deliberately is stripping Americans of their freedoms.” It is demonstrated by opposing “many federal and state authorities’ laws and regulations, (particularly those related to firearms ownership).” Would writing about those topics (as I am now) fall under “facilitation”? On its face, it’s hard to see how it could be excluded under DHS’s broad definition.

(this is the DHS that won’t say that islam is a factor when it comes to terrorism. okay to go after the white guys, but leave the ragheads alone)
If you are new to this website, you might not know there is a destructive propaganda war being waged in our nation’s classrooms. More and more, we are seeing extensive lessons on Islam in the public schools, extolling the virtues of Islamic misogyny and waxing poetic about sharia. One of the worst ideas is inviting Muslim leaders and/or clerics into the schools in the interest of multicultural ‘tolerance’ and ‘awareness.’
Religious studies are generally unwelcome in public schools, with the exception of the study of Islam. Perhaps there are people in the education system who think that a broader understanding of Islam will make it easier to understand barbaric acts of mass murder, such as we saw on September 11, 2001. But there is another more likely goal: making all religions morally equivalent, so that no specific religion is considered superior to any other.
The word “Islam” means “submission”. All Mohammedans are commended to wage war against the unbelievers until they submit to Islam and the entire world becomes Islamic.
Inviting Muslims to speak to students is not education, it is proselytizing for Islam that whitewashes the real history of Islam – the 270 million victims of a millennium of jihadi wars, land appropriations and ethnic cleansing wherever Muslims are the majority (and some place where they are not), cultural annihilations, and historical and modern day enslavement of black Africans. Public schools in America are allowing representatives of terror-linked CAIR to give lectures to students on Islam (something they never do for representatives of other religions). Yet these lectures never mention the systematic dehumanization of women: honor killings, limb amputations, homosexual hangings, female genital mutilation, forced child marriage, wife beating, and more that are all inherently part of Islam .
Public schools, almost exclusively run by left wingers, abhor any kind of religious symbolism or discussions in the classroom…except when it comes to Islam.
If you have school age children, they are probably being indoctrinated by Islamic propaganda without even realizing it. Many schools today use Saudi-funded textbooks with revisionist history that praises Islam and condemns Christianity. Some of the history books even say Muslims discovered America and have been a part of American history for over 400 years. You need to read your children’s textbooks and ask them what they are being taught about Islam.

Many of us who are biblical scholars have watched Mr. Obama’s use, or should I say abuse, of the Bible with dismay. [snip]
The president quoted the Bible to justify punishing those who have worked hard, and most of whom are very generous givers, in order to take their money and give it to many of his constituencies who are always standing outside the doors of the White House with out-stretched hands.
Mr. Obama, in justifying his misguided policy, quoted Jesus in Luke 12:48: “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”
No, you do not have to have a seminary degree to know that Jesus is talking about individual stewardship in an individual’s relationship with God.

Ridiculous Gov’t. Spending List Grows Longer Read some of the ridiculous studies our tax dollars fund!
Syria On Brink Of Full-Scale Civil War Wonder how far Russia and/or China will go to support the Assad regime?
Two Visions: Reagan vs. Obama I actually think this goes to the core of what Obama is about.
Obama was responding to a question about how he felt when Michelle Obama said she has been inaccurately portrayed as an “angry black woman.” While the president did not address that comment specifically, he says his wife is as good a first lady as anyone could imagine, and says he believes Americans have a positive impression of her.
Obama also says the first lady is ready for another four years in the White House, despite her initial reservations about coming to Washington.
(truth is, the queen injected herself into the politics and into American lives on her own. plus she likes that she can spend, spend, spend and it does not come out of her pocket)
We hear so often about Muslims as victims of abuse in the West and combatants in the Arab Spring’s fight against tyranny. But, in fact, a wholly different kind of war is underway — an unrecognized battle costing thousands of lives. Christians are being killed in the Islamic world because of their religion. It is a rising genocide that ought to provoke global alarm.
The portrayal of Muslims as victims or heroes is at best partially accurate. In recent years the violent oppression of Christian minorities has become the norm in Muslim-majority nations stretching from West Africa and the Middle East to South Asia and Oceania. In some countries it is governments and their agents that have burned churches and imprisoned parishioners. In others, rebel groups and vigilantes have taken matters into their own hands, murdering Christians and driving them from regions where their roots go back centuries.
The media’s reticence on the subject no doubt has several sources. One may be fear of provoking additional violence. Another is most likely the influence of lobbying groups such as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation — a kind of United Nations of Islam centered in Saudi Arabia — and the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Over the past decade, these and similar groups have been remarkably successful in persuading leading public figures and journalists in the West to think of each and every example of perceived anti-Muslim discrimination as an expression of a systematic and sinister derangement called “Islamophobia” — a term that is meant to elicit the same moral disapproval as xenophobia or homophobia.
But a fair-minded assessment of recent events and trends leads to the conclusion that the scale and severity of Islamophobia pales in comparison with the bloody Christophobia currently coursing through Muslim-majority nations from one end of the globe to the other. The conspiracy of silence surrounding this violent expression of religious intolerance has to stop. Nothing less than the fate of Christianity — and ultimately of all religious minorities — in the Islamic world is at stake.
From blasphemy laws to brutal murders to bombings to mutilations and the burning of holy sites, Christians in so many nations live in fear. In Nigeria many have suffered all of these forms of persecution. The nation has the largest Christian minority (40 percent) in proportion to its population (160 million) of any majority-Muslim country. For years, Muslims and Christians in Nigeria have lived on the edge of civil war. Islamist radicals provoke much if not most of the tension. The newest such organization is an outfit that calls itself Boko Haram, which means “Western education is sacrilege.” Its aim is to establish Sharia in Nigeria. To this end it has stated that it will kill all Christians in the country.
In the month of January 2012 alone, Boko Haram was responsible for 54 deaths. In 2011 its members killed at least 510 people and burned down or destroyed more than 350 churches in 10 northern states. They use guns, gasoline bombs, and even machetes, shouting “Allahu akbar” (“God is great”) while launching attacks on unsuspecting citizens. They have attacked churches, a Christmas Day gathering (killing 42 Catholics), beer parlors, a town hall, beauty salons, and banks. They have so far focused on killing Christian clerics, politicians, students, policemen, and soldiers, as well as Muslim clerics who condemn their mayhem. While they started out by using crude methods like hit-and-run assassinations from the back of motorbikes in 2009, the latest AP reports indicate that the group’s recent attacks show a new level of potency and sophistication.
