7 April 2009
(U) Prepared by the Extremism and Radicalization Branch, Homeland Environment Threat Analysis
Division. Coordinated with the FBI.
(U) Scope
(U//FOUO) This product is one of a series of intelligence assessments published by the
Extremism and Radicalization Branch to facilitate a greater understanding of the
phenomenon of violent radicalization in the United States. The information is
provided to federal, state, local, and tribal counterterrorism and law enforcement
officials so they may effectively deter, prevent, preempt, or respond to terrorist attacks
against the United States. Federal efforts to influence domestic public opinion must be
conducted in an overt and transparent manner, clearly identifying United States
Government sponsorship.

should be released to the media, the general public, or over non-secure Internet servers. Release of this information could adversely affect or jeopardize
investigative activities.
(U) Warning: This document is UNCLASSIFIED//FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY (U//FOUO). It contains information that may be exempt from public release under the
Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552). It is to be controlled, stored, handled, transmitted, distributed, and disposed of in accordance with DHS policy relating to
FOUO information and is not to be released to the public, the media, or other personnel who do not have a valid need-to-know without prior approval of an authorized
DHS official. State and local homeland security officials may share this document with authorized security personnel without further approval from DHS.
(U) All U.S. person information has been minimized. Should you require the minimized U.S. person information, please contact the DHS/I&A Production Branch at
IA.PM@hq.dhs.gov, IA.PM@dhs.sgov.gov, or IA.PM@dhs.ic.gov.

(U) Key Findings
(U//LES) The DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) has no specific
information that domestic rightwing* terrorists are currently planning acts of violence,
but rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about
several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first
African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and
recruitment.
— (U//LES) Threats from white supremacist and violent antigovernment groups
during 2009 have been largely rhetorical and have not indicated plans to carry
out violent acts. Nevertheless, the consequences of a prolonged economic
downturn—including real estate foreclosures, unemployment, and an inability
to obtain credit—could create a fertile recruiting environment for rightwing
extremists and even result in confrontations between such groups and
government authorities similar to those in the past.
— (U//LES) Rightwing extremists have capitalized on the election of the first
African American president, and are focusing their efforts to recruit new
members, mobilize existing supporters, and broaden their scope and appeal
through propaganda, but they have not yet turned to attack planning.
(U//FOUO) The current economic and political climate has some similarities to the
1990s when rightwing extremism experienced a resurgence fueled largely by an
economic recession, criticism about the outsourcing of jobs, and the perceived threat to
U.S. power and sovereignty by other foreign powers.
— (U//FOUO) During the 1990s, these issues contributed to the growth in the
number of domestic rightwing terrorist and extremist groups and an increase in
violent acts targeting government facilities, law enforcement officers, banks,
and infrastructure sectors.
— (U//FOUO) Growth of these groups subsided in reaction to increased
government scrutiny as a result of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and
disrupted plots, improvements in the economy, and the continued U.S. standing
as the preeminent world power.
(U//FOUO) The possible passage of new restrictions on firearms and the return of
military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities
could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists
capable of carrying out violent attacks.
* (U) Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and
adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups),
and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or
rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a
single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.

— (U//FOUO) Proposed imposition of firearms restrictions and weapons bans
likely would attract new members into the ranks of rightwing extremist groups,
as well as potentially spur some of them to begin planning and training for
violence against the government. The high volume of purchases and
stockpiling of weapons and ammunition by rightwing extremists in anticipation
of restrictions and bans in some parts of the country continue to be a primary
concern to law enforcement.
— (U//FOUO) Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are
attractive to rightwing extremists. DHS/I&A is concerned that rightwing
extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to
boost their violent capabilities.

Star and flag, to get more attention to this DHS release.

Thank you for posting. Interesting read so far. They seem to be putting a lot of emphasis on returning veterans being a threat, since they have combat skills... Interesting, maybe something to keep an eye on ?

Here's an interesting note. I did a search for info on this memo via "Yahoo" with no results. I searched on Google and found a lot of results. Is that weird or what...

including real estate foreclosures, unemployment, and an inability

Created by the government and the FED.


even result in confrontations between such groups and
government authorities similar to those in the past.

Similar to those in the past? What are those? Waco? The murder of citizens? OKC, the inside job?


Rightwing extremists have capitalized on the election of the first
African American president

Make that ``the continuation of raping of america by the bankers``.


and are focusing their efforts to recruit new members, mobilize existing supporters, and broaden their scope and appeal through propaganda

Translation: wake up new people, mobilize people so we turn this around and stop the bankers, through TRUTH.


but they have not yet turned to attack planning.

Not yet. When you try to get our right to bear arms or you fire the first shots, THEN it will probably turn violent, but until then, forget it.


The current economic and political climate has some similarities to the
1990s when rightwing extremism experienced a resurgence fueled largely by an economic recession, criticism about the outsourcing of jobs, and the perceived threat to U.S. power and sovereignty by other foreign powers.

You're kidding right? An economic DEPRESSION is coming and the US government is selling us to a ``New World Order``.


During the 1990s, these issues contributed to the growth in the
number of domestic rightwing terrorist and extremist groups and an increase in violent acts targeting government facilities, law enforcement officers, banks, and infrastructure sectors.

Yeah right. OKC, inside job. Banks are raping us. ``Law enforcement`` are thugs and not respecting our rights. Sorry in the 90s there was no increase in violent acts towards the government, that's BS.


Growth of these groups subsided in reaction to increased
government scrutiny as a result of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and
disrupted plots, improvements in the economy, and the continued U.S. standing as the preeminent world power.

OKC, Inside job, they admit right there that they used that as a reason to crackdown and infiltrate militias. Improvements in the economy... not going to happen this time, nor the continued US standing as the preeminent world power.


The possible passage of new restrictions on firearms and the return of
military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks.

Yeah, they TOTALLY don't want to ban guns... HR45, ammo impossible to find at decent price, tagging of ammo, Pelosi and Holder saying that the second amendment won't stand in the way.... bills trying to deny veterans of the second amendment for bogus psychological reasons.



and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or

Yeah sorry that the constitution was written like that and that we are against a big government controlling our lives. And that many states passed a tenth amendment resolution.


It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a
single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.

Yeah sorry about that, if you oppose total amnesty to illegal aliens, you're a terrorist, if you oppose abortion, TERRORIST.


Proposed imposition of firearms restrictions and weapons bans
likely would attract new members into the ranks of rightwing extremist groups, as well as potentially spur some of them to begin planning and training for violence against the government. The high volume of purchases and stockpiling of weapons and ammunition by rightwing extremists in anticipation of restrictions and bans in some parts of the country continue to be a primary concern to law enforcement.

Yeah, now people UNDERSTAND that the government is trying to rob them of their second amendment, so you won't get away with it if you try to enforce your BS.


Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are
attractive to rightwing extremists. DHS/I&A is concerned that rightwing
extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to
boost their violent capabilities.

When veterans come home and realized how our freedoms were raped by the government since 2001, they won't need any help from any organisation to ``turn extremist``. There's no extremism when you persue freedom.

Thank you for the commentary on some of their BS.

LOL
Really, I found it hilarious, and agreed 100%. Especially with the part about the returning veterans.

This DHS pdf might be proof enough that they know We The People are upset. But instead of turning things around to make Americans happy, they have every intention on brainwashing their minions to fight us. Nice.

I used the link that you gave, but i can't get to what you're referring to. I'm not sure if i'm doing something wrong, or the link isn't working properly. I'd really like to read it, but i can't get to it.

I question the validity of the source... but if thats true, what a bunch of BS propaganda.

In the Bush years, we had the neo conservatives, so far under Obama, we have the neo-lib movement. so we went from one form of extreme to another...When will this madness end?

Can someone tell me if this source is tied to the current admin?

I just tried the link too - I can get to the page but its empty except for the title.

OMG - I just got notified I need 118 more characters before this feedback to your uploading can be posted.

Now its s '0'

I mean really masters - Some thoughts are efficient enough to communicate in fewer strokes than your newly demanded minimum. Kind of depends on the CONTEXT, don't you think?

Interesting how mods read every post anyway and mete warnings for other things, but now everyone has to meet a minimum requirement because a few annoying people were always doing just that - annoying everyone with little posts.

They're also talking about this at: Tree of Liberty

The prevailing thought is that they're trying to goad us into a blood bath to just get it over with so they can get on with their agenda without us around. It's bait, hence the reason why this and the MO memo are both "unclassified." They WANT us to read it and spread it around the blogosphere to incite anger and fear.

So Sorry - last post link didn't work either - this one does and then you just have to click on left side first choice under Friday's Notes for the full report.

And we're off for yet more profiles of those dangerous civilians everyone's so concerned about.

No, the want to exterminate those of us that are against the fascist plans of the Obama administration. If we pull out our guns and start shooting, that gives them the ability to turn to the rest of America and say, "See, didn't we tell you these people were crazy? They must be dealt with." This memo demonizes anyone with ideas that are contrary to the administration.

If you work for Fox News, you have to report on this document. Give it to Glenn Beck. He'll do it.

Is this old news? I can't believe no one is interested in this.

Maybe we should just be ignoring it if it came out of PSYOPS.

Or at least he'll form an "independent investigative panel" comprised of Popular Mechanics, Benjamin Chertoff and James Meigs to debunk it.

Ron Paul Girl, you might want to change your name before everything associated with Ron Paul, libertarians and defending the constitution gets turned into "right-wing extremists" and then a domestic al-CIAduh.

My favorite part:


Following the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City, the militia movement declined in total membership and in the number of organized groups because many members distanced themselves from the movement as a result of the intense scrutiny militias received after the bombing.

Just curious, how did Timothy McVeigh get all these "powerful" and "sophisticated" explosives devices into the Murrah Federal Building? I thought he used nitrate fertilizer and diesel fuel in a Ryder rental truck. I guess the OKC bomb squad, TV anchors, reporters, police spokesmen and Oklahoma governor were just confused:

Don't think it's that people aren't interested in it so much as it is Easter Sunday and people are spending today doing family type stuffs.


What caught my attention the most on this was this ...


and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority,


hahahahaha!!!! If we support state or local government but NOT Federal government we are "antigovernment" ?!?!?!?!?

Doesn't the Constitution give the majority of power to the States or The People??


Amendment 10
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor
prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to
the people.
