FBI spied on TEA Party Americans


homelandsecurityus.com

19 April 2009: Even as average Americans were planning to get out in towns and cities to demonstrate against Big Government and Big Taxes, Federal Bureau of Intelligence Investigation (FBI) surveillance was being unleashed upon them. In fact, unsuspecting Tax Day TEA Party participants were being closely watched during the demonstration planning stages in a covert operation that began on or about March 23, 2009.

Go to my thread www.abovetopsecret.com...
I posted a message that I saw an undercover FBI agent at the Tea Party meeting.

Looks like I might not be a paranoid "kook" after all.



Told you so!!!

Anyway, isn't it wonderful how our tax dollars are keeping us safe(from ourselves). Welcome to Tyranny, the police state is here.

And they spied on Katrina advocates, Vegan groups(go figure that one), left-wing activist groups, Code Pink and anti Bush Protest groups. Let's also not forget that they spied on nearly 30,000 people a year under the US patriot act.

I just saw the article at homelandsecurityus.com

The fact that Janet Napolitano and the DHS are lumping together law abiding Americans who are concerned and want the government, as well as themselves to defend, and uphold the Constitution of these United States.

Americans who do not want a "New Declaration of Independence" that President Obama called for and his blind, brainwashed supporters applauded him while he claimed we need to dissolve the Republic.

Those Americans who are concerned about their rights to bear, and own firearms being "restricted"/ "infringed", and those veterans returning from Iraq/Afghanistan, and seen their country being transformed into something they vowed to fight against.

The lumping of American patriots with "being possible terrorists" has us concerned, and the government is acting exactly on those fears we have, trying to dissolve the Constitution, having government officials like Hillary Clinton claiming "no Human Right is more important than any crisis", or Obama, or Emmanuel Rahm, among others, claiming that they should not let a "good crisis" pass them by without them changing the country in ways that never would have been possible in other circumstances.

Of course we are afraid.

The Canadian Free Press also picked up this article and it is shocking. What is most shocking is not just the fact that we waste tax payer money and government worker hours on this nonsense but that under the current Administration this type of behavior is increasing.


If you one of the estimated 750,000 Americans who attended one of about 600 TEA parties last week, you might have seen media cameras covering the event. Media cameras, however, were not the only cameras taking video at these events, something that has at least one current FBI agent concerned over the future of America. According to this agent – the same agent who provided the Northeast Intelligence Network (NEIN) exclusively the unreleased photographs of the 11 missing Egyptian students who were the subject of a FBI BOLO in August 2006--placed his concerns for true patriots of the U.S. over his own career when he confided that covert surveillance was “planned and performed” at each of the TEA parties that took place last Tuesday.

“Listen to what I am saying,” stated the source during an interview with Doug Hagmann, founder (NEIN). “The Department of Homeland Security Intelligence Assessment that is receiving so much attention is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, and the true patriotic citizens of this country are on the Titanic. This is what bothers me. But is goes far beyond that assessment. There have been very significant changes made over the last few years that redirect the focus and assets of the intelligence community internally. These changes have greatly accelerated under this administration, and the threats have been redefined to include those who used to be patriots. It’s not only chilling but absolutely insulting to God-fearing Americans.”


Canadian Free Press

Thats a source from within the FBI saying that!

Not only have Intelligence resources been redirected internally over the past few years but it has greatly accelerated under PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!

Is this the change people really want?

The Federal Government is out of control ladies and gentlemen.

I was very scared of being gitmo'd under Bush as I challenged the official 9/11 story with my website. I was a "far left lunatic". Now that I was no Bush fan, and I don't like Obama, I have become a "right wing extreme terror threat". (mind you I didn't adjust my political views 1 iota during this time of change).

I am no longer pissed, I have chosen my side, and will defend my constitutional rights to the death.

When they came for the terrorists, I did nothing.
I waved my flag just like everyone else. Terrorists must be stomped out!

When they came for the extremists, I did nothing.
Extremists are all wacko's, of course they must be put in camps.

When they came for the protesters, I did nothing.
I mean really, who wants to stand outside all day holding a sign? They MUST be extremists and terrorists!

When they came for the gun owners, I did nothing.
Guns are bad and kill people! Gun owners MUST be the terrorists, extremists and protesters.

When they came for me because of an anonymous tip on 1-800-TEL-FEMA, nobody was left to care.

Yep.

The government has entered a new, almost comical twilight zone of stazi style, computer age ultra spying on it's own citizens. For those of us able to see through the BS on MSM it's easy to see that the criminal elite are doing every thing they can to stifle the righteous pitchforking that is coming their way.

Well since you helped organize one i guess you know they're lookin at you. But then again we all knew they'd be lookin at everyone that attended, and just hoping that things would turn ugly so they would have a reason.

All their little "information leaks", public statements about how the constitution is merely a piece of paper and the 2nd amendment won't get in their way, their lax border control and siding with illegals, etc is nothing more than a ploy to get the people so worked up that we do something stupid and give them the reason and opportunity to take away our country and our freedom.

Tyranny and the police state have been here for quite awhile now, it's just that they aren't attempting to hide it as much anymore. It's only gonna get worse, much worse.

We should have had an actual tea party when that damn patriot act was allowed to go through, we should have screamed to the high heavens. We should have demanded the Bush be charged with treason the minute he said that the constitution was nothing more than a damned piece of paper.

I find this story etremely disturbing. It's one thing to speculate about these types of things but to hear this coming from an actual FBI Agent is, well, scary as heck.

Reading this along with all the things going on with DHS and all the things that Obama is doing and saying across the globe really does make one wonder where this country is heading.

I'm really afraid that if things like this keep up and continue to progress at the pace they are going that there will be nothing less than bloodshed. I hate to say that and I really don't want to see this happen but I don't think there's much that we can do to stop it if things continue along this vein.

We should have but the reality is I don't think it would have done much good. Just like the PTB picked a perfect ace up their sleeve with Barack Hussein Obama they pulled one previously with the War On Terror.

Stupefied and frightened Americans being traumatized day after day watching two of the most potent symbols of our nation going up in fire, smoke and ash as people leapt to their deaths.

An unseen enemy. A stateless enemy. An enemy hiding amongst us lurking in the shadows...the Boogey Man.

Most Americans wanted to lash out at someone or something, with little idea of who to and how too, it was the perfect time to push through something as grotesque and perverted as the Patriot Act.

Conservatives and liberals alike were willing to go along with it, as well as the Nazification of the Homeland Security Act.

Now we are saddled with yet another corrupt President that 38% of America would burn to defend just because of the color of his skin.

I think the Eagles might have summed this situation up best..."Just find a place to make your stand...and take it easy, don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy"

That is what they are going to try to do...to drive us crazy with the sound of our own wheels as we anticipate and try to defend against what comes next.

We still hold the advantage...it's a very think line of blue and green that ultimately defends the criminal politicians and their sycophant Masters.

We will prevail of that I have no doubt.

People need to be spying on ALL federal 'law enforcement'. The FBI and US Marshal Service have murdered people both covertly and overtly (for the FBI, please reference how they were conveniently 'there' when Wellstone's plane crashed, how they were 'there' to collect evidence which never saw the light of day after Gary Caridori's plane crashed killing him and his son (Franklin Scandal). Also from Franklin, the mysterious death of Shawn Boner in a NM hospital, the suppression of any existing evidence, the framing of Alishia Owens (who as a juvenile was sentenced to the longest term ever for 'perjury'). The US Marshal Service were the ones who brought the Brown's to 'justice' for not paying the voluntary income tax (and having the nerve to demand which law they had broken in doing so). In addition to this, they literally murdered Gordon Kahl, and are instrumental in working for Monsanto in serving warrants to farmers for bogus charges. Any Federal judge who signs what amounts to illegal warrants should be monitored as well. The FBI has been involved in a number of other completely wrong activities, such as the Weaver incident. These alphabet soup 'law' enforcers/investigators are only concerned with their paychecks and their retirement (which doesn't appear to be affected by the banking activity whatsoever). There are, of course, individuals within that are deluded into believing they are working for justice--however, any information available to us is likewise available to them, and if they choose not to see the criminality of the agency they're working for, it would appear to be more self-serving (so they can still look at themselves). I won't even bother with the CIA and DEA (Cele Castillo and Gary Webb have exposed them quite well already). It doesn't even appear to be a matter of investigation--more like intimidation. The tables need to be turned--spy on the spies!

There is no freedom of speech anymore. Or maybe...there is simply no freedom. They don't even pretend to listen to the people anymore...they don't even pretend to follow the law, or the constitution. It is time to either leave or revolt and I don't believe Americans have to stomach for revolt. We all have gotten so weak...so flacid...so...so dead. Maybe this once great country has finally run its course.

Ever since "WE" the people, changed to "I" the person, America has been going downhill. Communities are so splattered with people who don't share the same beliefs, morals, rules, etc. that "WE" can't even co-exist. In today's world, a "Representative" simply can't represent because each community isn't a community...it is a bunch of "I"s...all with different opinions. We were meant to live in Kingdoms, with others who share the same beliefs. Then we could be represented. And each Kingdom could have what they want...live like they want...marry who they want...etc. And if you didn't like the ideals of the community...move to another. But not when a community isn't a community.

We (like all other animals of the planet) were meant to live in groups with like ideals. Not in groups who can't even get along with each other...let alone share goals, ideals and morals.

Sorry for the rant...just longing for the good old days.

APPLAUSE THIS MAN FOR HIS HONEST AND EVERYTHING-BUT-FALSE OPINION!!
You are very right my friend, It is good to see that not every american citizen has been brainwashed to the bone.
All of this started before the WW's, it has become normal for them to do such, and definately too late to complain now. We had years and years of time to fight what was happening, and public decided to ignore and/or title the people saying this a lunatic, so now they should just keep on living the naive life they were living before

so many issues that should be states rights issues are federalized, and that is where all the I's come from. Abortion, gay marriage, legalized drugs, etc. should all be handled at the state level and not at the federal level. The feds just have no right to do anything about any of these.

As to being on a list of possible terrorist suspects. We still have jury nullification. We MUST inform the public of their rights and obligations in regards to jury duty. We have the power to set people unjustly accused of bogus crimes free. It is one of the few remaining powers of the people.

Unfortunately there are way too many people that are being watched today; many are truly people that have the good of their fellow man at heart. If it is a surprise to you that the alphabet agencies were at the tea parties you had better wake up. This has been coming for some time and started in the seventies with the forced busing issue. Many people were watched then and are still watched today. DHS and the Patriot Act only made it easier for them to gain ground in their attempt to gather info on us all. Do not say anything that you do not want used against you, especially here. Remember their is no anonymity anywhere anymore.

There are still peaceable ways out of this mess, however tbtb may not want the saner and more intelligent amongst us to speak out. We must always, when at any rally or protest, be on the lookout for agent provocateurs. Bad press and the MSM will work against the cause of a free american, we must not let that happen. It will require vigilance and a willingness to out these people. The infiltration is only beginning, it was the downfall of the early militia movement, we cannot afford to let it bring this down as well.

Yea, Now we are the enemy? This is the lunatic ravings of a paranoid administration. Knowing they are going too far down the road to socialism and removing our constitutional rights. Of course their going to consider us as the enemy, knowing what they are doing is nothing short of tyranny.


IMPEACH THE USURPER!

This disgusts me. So much for World War II putting an end to the concept of world wide fascism. Do any of us truly fall into the category of 'terrorist'?

If you are not sure... click here to take a quiz and find out.

This quiz was meant to be amusing but the more I realize the lack of logic behind the questions, it actually resembles the government.

with the risk of having things thrown at me, i want to point out that the "source" from the news story isnt even identified. whos to say he isnt just a soured former employee, an anarchist who is lying...?

furthermore, maybe there were people of interest at these gatherings.

none of these possibilities were explored. it isnt even proven that the FBI was spying at all. calm down.
