The instruments of tyranny

“The means of defence against foreign danger have been always the instruments of tyranny at home.” ~  James Madison
 
A March 2021 unclassified threat assessment prepared by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), Department of Justice, and DHS, noted that domestic violent extremists “who are motivated by a range of ideologies and galvanized by recent political and societal events in the United States pose an elevated threat to the Homeland in 2021.”3 The assessment pointed to newer “sociopolitical developments such as narratives of fraud in the recent general election, the emboldening impact of the violent breach of the U.S. Capitol, conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and conspiracy theories promoting violence” that “will almost certainly spur some [domestic violent extremists] [sic] to try to engage in violence this year.”

This isn't new. The Obama IRS targeted Tea Party groups, preventing them from raising money.
 
The IRS signed a consent decree in federal court in which it admitted to targeting conservative organizations for more than two years, from 2010 through 2013. Researchers concluded that a fully mobilized Tea Party, unhindered by IRS harassment, would have brought the Republican Party between 5 and 8.5 million votes. You may recall Obama won the popular vote by just under 5 million votes.
 
Since no one was ever punished, it makes sense that the DHS would think it has a green light.

2. J6 Fishing Expedition and 2022 Election Goals Could Reveal Why Pelosi Opened Satellite DC Police Offices in Key States.
 
Everyone in DC knows Nancy Pelosi’s J6 Committee is intended to target Democrat political opposition. I believe we are about to find out why Nancy Pelosi established satellite offices of the Capitol Hill Police Department in several states. The DC Police are positioned to be used as the enforcement mechanism for non-criminal congressional subpoenas that cannot flow through the U.S. Department of Justice. What Nancy Pelosi is doing is expanding the federal law enforcement mechanism of the legislative branch into specific areas where they can investigate political opposition armed with legal authority.
 
Even the Speaker of the House, who should be interested in protecting the constitutional prerogatives of Congress, made it clear that Biden should exceed his executive authority if the Democrats can’t get their agenda passed. On Friday, Speaker Pelosi (D-Calif.) said, “It’s very important for the executive to act if we cannot get legislative action immediately.” 
 
The government spending bill’s Section 1103 also contains funding for ATF to begin deputizing local law enforcement officers to enforce federal gun control laws. ATF can also appoint local government attorneys to help prosecute the enforcement of this gun control as well.  This runs in direct contradiction to the Second Amendment Sanctuary laws. Congress is facilitating the enforcement of federal gun laws with local ATF deputies!

The significance of that can be seen in Ukraine, where ordinary citizens are being given guns to fight against Russia. "When governments fear the people, there is liberty," Thomas Jefferson wrote. "When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

Think any of this is coincidental? The writer Ann Brashares writes: "I always interpret coincidences as little clues to our destiny."

Best to be wary.
 

"We live in an age in which it is no longer possible to be funny. There is nothing you can imagine, no matter how ludicrous, that will not promptly be enacted before your very eyes, probably by someone well known."
~ Malcolm Muggeridge
