US citizens must take front line in national security: Napolitano

YES, we must take the front line in National Security, Let's jail Janet Napolitano for life and never allow her to speak to anyone, and much less any journalists.

That's what our National Security needs the most right now...

why is this not all over the place?

She insisted that President Barack Obama's administration was committed to repairing the erosion of civil liberties that took place under his predecessor, George W. Bush.

She's nuttier than a peanut farm and in charge of "homeland" security. Boy do we need help.

Someone enlighten me to how she is helping in "repairing the erosion of civil liberties"? Frakkin idiots, they complain about Bush then do the exact same thing. Hypocrisy at it's best.

Our longstanding, Orwellian national nightmare continues.

I don't narc on my family, friends, or neighbors, just my boss!
I spend all day befriending my neighbors, improving my relationships with them, offering assistance, and keeping an eye out for them; so they'll never notice me coming and going from my house at all hours of the night with strange people and strange packages!

Exact same thing? Actually the Obama administration has done 10,000 times worse than the Bush administration ever did, and it's only been 6 months.... The Obama administration, and this rat call Janet Napolitano have labeled most regular Americans as "possible terrorists", not to mention that we are in more debt than the Bush administration put us in, about 3-4 times more, if not more, and the country is being turned more, and more into another Socialist dictatorship... So yeah, the Obama administration has done worse in 6 months than the Bush administration did in 8 years...go figure...

My neighborhood is pretty safe for the most part from these actions. I am preparing for something similar to Nazi Germany by making sure everything is in order and i know my true friends.

Look at her reporting to her bosses here:

If the Brits are doing it, you can bet it'll be here soon. This is undeniably police state material. Funny how this spying on your neighbor business coming out all at once.

How often has a suitcase blown up anyways? It's usually some poor old ladys lost luggage...or some guy that spilled his starbucks and went for a napkin really quick, only to find his bag quarantined and blown up by the bomb squad...if that was my luggage, I'd punch whoever snitched for being ignorant

What if I saw that, didn't report it....and the damn thing blew up killing/ maiming/traumatizing....WELL I GUESS AT LEAST I WOULDN'T BE A SNITCH

That depends entirely on what you consider shady. I like to take walks at night around my neighborhood, usually between 11pm and 1am, because it is quiet and cool. I wonder how many of my neighbors consider me shady for walking the streets at night, alone, with no 'apparent reason' for being there?
'Why won't this plan work' you say? Because people are people, and people make mistakes. Just look at the incident with that black professor recently. Some 'good citizen' thought they were reporting a break-in, and what happened? Yeah, I want my neighbors to watch my every move and report anything THEY feel, is suspicious. You don't see the inherent flaw in that?

This is just ridiculous! Now they want us to train our kids and grands to be little informants! Uh, last time I checked kids have amazing imaginations and can weave serious tales. I guess that would keep them busy, chasing all the leads from children.

This is a very different world since THEY blew the towers. I can remember in Social Studies when I was a kid being taught how awful it was in Communist countries that children were taught to report their parents and adults they suspected of activities against the state. My how things have changed.
Thanks George, Dick, and all the others that helped get us here.

edit: If anyone is up, dear Janet is supposed to be doing an interview on CNN's morning show shortly.

This sounds like a perfect match from Stalins Russia. People got so paranoid about everyone else - they turned them in, because whoever made the first report had the higher 'moral' ground.

In other words - label everyone a terrorist - hype the danger, then watch as everyone turns everyone else into the police.

In Stalins Russia, the police then tortured and killed whoever they liked whenever they liked - if Americans don't just do something soon - then you are finished.

I simply cannot understand why everyone isn't camped in front of your government buildings screaming and shouting for them to leave? What else are people doing that is more important? What are YOU doing thats more important?

Truthfully - I don't understand the lack of response at all.

much of the article IMO isnt too bad, except for these:

We have to be very careful about profiling a religious institution just as we have to be careful about profiling individuals," she said. "We have to be very, very careful about interfering with the free exercise of religion."


Also in May, four New York men -- three of them US citizens -- were arrested on charges of trying to blow up synagogues and destroying a US military plane.

which was found to be FBI poking its noses where it shouldnt have been in the first place. That being said, that means if one thing is suspect, gotta be cautious of the whole package. Boo Janet napolianatio and whomever wrote this article.

That's right. They want YOU to spy on your fellow neighbors. Napolitano wants you to be big brother. She wants you to play the role of fellow big government in spying on neighbors who the state dislikes. She wants YOU.

Doesn't anyone see anything wrong with this? This was taken right out of 1984's playbook. This is Orweillian like.
(visit the link for the full news article)

I just recently watched 1984 and think ill read the book. This is very scary.....

I guess there is hope but still very worrying. I hope we can stop this and bring peace to the world.

"For too long, we've treated the public as a liability to be protected rather than asset in our nation's collective security," Napolitano said Wednesday during a speech at the Council on Foreign Relations. "This approach, unfortunately, has allowed confusion, anxiety and fear to linger."

How is the public a 'liability'? How is the public somehow seperate from the nation? An asset to further the government's agenda? So are they 'the government' the nation and the public are just annoying little ants who are a liability to their autonomous plans? The only confusion, anxiety and fear is produced because of the government's actions, inherent corruption and unknown further plans to hurt, kill or destroy the public. Best if they realise they are there to serve the 'public' and the society which they too are a part of. Best if they realise they should be an asset and not a liabilty to the people they serve.

My American friends don't let your ridiculous government turn you all against each other.

As Abraham Lincoln said:

"A house divided against itself cannot stand."

What is the definition of "suspicious behavior"? Then --- what is the government's definition of "suspicious behavior"?

You know, it's funny.

When I first read the headline of this article all I kept thinking was:

At least they are admitting that they are going to use us as human shields!

Seriously though, if this isn't "stirring up the pot" I don't know what is. Besides, how can we provide national security -- we are all too busy volunteering!!

All this is going to do is make fellow citizens suspicious of one another -- and prevent us from fighting with each other.

This, in my opinion, is one step forward in their final goal of completely dividing the country and pitting man against man.

After all, you can't completely takeover the United States if its citizens stick together.

Divide and conquer!

Unfortunately, most of us have already been labeled as terrorists, so that parts been done.

Returning Vets, Republicans, religeous fanatics, conservatives, armed southerners, birthers, etc.

Now all that's left is for people to start pointing out to the gov't exactly whom falls into the above categories.
