    "There are some of those folks that want to overthrow the government, period... this is how ISIS starts"

    Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich linked “rhetoric” from supporters of the U.S. Constitution to violent anti-government groups and ISIS this week in an exposé on the officer’s fight against “homegrown extremists.”

    In an article featured in the August 2015 edition of the Inlander, the Washington state sheriff draws comparisons to the ISIS terrorist group while railing against everyone from Infowars’ Alex Jones to Washington State Rep. Matthew Shea.

    “There are some of those folks that want to overthrow the government, period. They want to hit a reset button,” Knezovich said. “If they’re willing to lie to get that reset button — this is how ISIS starts.”

    The Inlander piece highlights the sheriff’s ongoing campaign against local conservative groups who he feels are pushing dangerous rhetoric. When asked to specifically name those responsible, Knezovich pointed to both Rep. Shea and “all those folks that created the video about the Deputy.”

    Knezovich’s statement refers to exclusive footage released by Infowars last December which highlighted unsettling comments made by a Spokane sheriff’s deputy as he stood next to the department’s mine-resistant ambush protected military vehicle (MRAP). After a local resident approached and questioned law enforcement’s need for military hardware, the deputy immediately used “constitutionalists” with “firearms” as justification.

    “I mean, we’ve got a lot of constitutionalists and a lot of people that stockpile weapons, lots of ammunition,” the deputy said. “They have weapons here locally.”

    Several problems with this, not the least of which is that Constitutionalists, of which I consider myself one, by the very definition of their name, do not want to overthrow the government, but merely to reform the government and use legal means to return it to its Constitutional foundation.

    This is the opposite of that. This is a case of a government official declaring citizens the enemy and history has shown that that ends in disaster for everybody.

    The second thing I find really disturbing is that, if people who want the government to be held to the Constitution are bad, then what does that say about the kind of sheriff he is and the way he runs his department? It isn't a good sign.

    Did you check out the suggestion I gave you yesterday? If not, you should. I really think it would be something you'd enjoy.

    The progressives are stacking the deck in states that they control, just as they have stacked federal government agencies. This is their time, and they are consolidating their base. While the Red states are somewhat safe, i do not know for how long?

    If this is all the liberal's doing why has it been continuing through every administration since the 1960's?

    In 1967 the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders, known as the Kerner Commission, found that in every single case the precipitating cause of the riots was police brutality. Furthermore, the commission found that police tactical incompetence usually made things worse.

    It was in response to this panorama of formal and informal rebellion — and law enforcement’s apparent inability to stop it — that the massive criminal justice crackdown began. The opening move was President Johnson’s Omnibus Crime and Safe Streets Act of 1968.

    Congress passed the bill literally in the shadow of smoke from yet another riot — this one in outrage at the murder of Dr Martin Luther King. From the passage of the Omnibus Crime and Safe Streets Act of 1968 emerged a new super agency, the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA), which over the next ten years spent a billion dollars annually rationalizing and retooling state and local law enforcement.

    It was thanks to the LEAA that American police forces first obtained computers, helicopters, body armor, military-grade weapons, SWAT teams, shoulder radios, and paramilitary training, and started new militaristic forms of interagency cooperation. The LEAA also pushed literacy requirements and basic competency tests for police officers. In other words, the LEAA was simultaneously an attempt to modernize American policing and to intensify and expand it.

    I did not say liberals, i said progressives. There are progressives in both parties. Bush 1 was a new world order guy. Political identities not withstanding, enlightenment fueled, one world government types are all the same. Whether it is Soros, Koch, Bloomburg, et. al., makes no difference. Their goal is a new order ruled by man, with the chosen few dictating to the masses. Totally secular with the overarching global govco in charge of everything. Just the continuing attempt by depraved man to usurp authority away from Almighty God.
