MIAC Report: Ron Paul Supporters Labeled Domestic Terrorists?

This post will show how US citizens have been declared terrorists, by their own government.
“Obedient victims sanction their enslavement.” -Ayn Rand
****   “He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it.”  –Martin Luther King, Jr.
Historically, as I understand, Marxist always consolidate power under an iron fist.
They never relinquish the power they take…    Not peacefully.

Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear. –Harry S. Truman

This is the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC), report that was either leaked or released by mistake, in March 2009.  It went through a couple of revisions that were accompanied by statements from the Missouri Highway Patrol.  The final version was released in May 2009, after the original was sufficiently cleaned up  err,  whitewashed.
The MIAC is one of 72 Fusion Centers, around the country.    Fusion Centers are intelligence-sharing operations conducted on the state and local level, with funding provided largely by the federal Department of Homeland Security.  I’ve provided related links below this present article, if you wish to know more about these liberty-defeating government organizations.
         

MIAC Report: Ron Paul Supporters Labeled Domestic Terrorists?

… e-mailed me a link to a story about how the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) basically correlates libertarians and more specifically supporters of Ron Paul, Bob Barr and Chuck Baldwin, with potentially being a domestic terrorist or member of a militia.

Some news stories out of Missouri helped with the credibility of the story, especially an article from the Columbia Tribune:

Titled “The Modern Militia Movement,” the report is dated Feb. 20 and designed to help police identify militia members or domestic terrorists. Red flags outlined in the document include political bumper stickers such as those for U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, talk of conspiracy theories such as the plan for a mega-highway from Canada to Mexico and possession of subversive literature.

But when Neal read the report, he couldn’t help but think it described him. A military veteran and a delegate to the 2008 Missouri Republican state convention, he didn’t appreciate being lumped in with groups like the Neo-Nazis.

“I was going down the list and thinking, ‘Check, that’s me,’ ” he said. “I’m a Ron Paul supporter, check. I talk about the North American union, check. I’ve got the ‘America: Freedom to Fascism’ video loaned out to somebody right now. So that means I’m a domestic terrorist? Because I’ve got a video about the Federal Reserve?”
[…]
[S]tate law enforcement officials said the report is being misinterpreted. Lt. John Hotz of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said the report was compiled by the Missouri Information Analysis Center, based in Jefferson City and comes purely from publicly available, trend data on militias.

Fusion Centers: Expensive, Practically Useless, and Bad for Your Liberty

Jesse Walker,|Oct. 3, 2012

The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs has just released a report [pdf] on the “fusion centers” that pepper the law-enforcement landscape — shadowy intelligence-sharing shops run on the state and local level but heavily funded by the federal Department of Homeland Security. It is a devastating document. When a report’s recommendations include a plea for the DHS to “track how much money it gives to each fusion center,” you know you’re dealing with a system that has some very basic problems.

Map Your Local Fusion Center

Fusion centers — places for state, local and federal officials to share and analyze information — sprang up at the local level in the wake of the post-9/11 complaints about the failure to “connect the dots.” In 2003, the federal government began contributing funding; to date, the Department of Homeland Security has provided more than $420 million in funding to 72 fusion centers across the country, but some localities have funded additional centers.

Fusion centers are built upon the idea of cops on a beat — local authorities will recognize potential threats to their communities and feed the system with intelligence about possible terrorists. But critics charge that the imperative to gather as much information as possible can lead to abuses and misinformation that can get into national databases
