New York Fusion Center Declares Oath Keepers, Other Liberty Groups as ‘Extremist Threats’

| |

Oath-Keepers-250x250

The New York State Intelligence Center — a known Fusion Center with the stated purpose to, “collect, evaluate, analyze, and disseminate information and intelligence data regarding criminal and terrorist activity relevant to New York State” — issued a Counter Terrorism Bulletin last June identifying Oath Keepers in addition to other liberty related groups as “far-right extremist group and/or a threat to law enforcement.”

Here is a portion of a statement released by Oath Keepers yesterday:

On August 11, 2014, the New York Oath Keepers sent out correspondence to both the Governor and the Superintendent of the New York State Police clearly pointing out the New York State Intelligence Center’s faulty logic and misstatements of fact that were used to politically demonize the New York Oath Keeper organization whose clearly stated nonpartisan mission is simply to encourage our Military and Law Enforcement Officers, and others, to honor their oaths to the United States and New York State Constitutions.

In that correspondence, we requested that the officials at the NYSIC issue a public correction, indicating their error in classifying New York Oath Keepers as a far-right extremist group and/or a threat to law enforcement. We also requested a meeting with the Governor, the Superintendent of the New York State Police and/or officials from other NYSIC member organizations, so we could address any misinformation and misunderstandings about the New York Oath Keepers mission. We told them that It is our goal to see this extremely prejudicial “far-right extremist” label retracted and the necessary corrections made to the Bulletin.

A month and a half has passed and neither the Governor nor the Superintendent of the New York State Police has seen fit to even reply to our original correspondence.

So, today the New York Oath Keepers, an organization consisting of thousands of active duty and retired military, police and fire personnel, who have at one or more times in their lives taken an Oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, sent them a second letter. We also sent a letter to the Special Agent in Charge of the Albany Office of the FBI, as they are also key members of the NYSIC.

The full statement is up on the official Oath Keepers site here which includes copies of all letters (including the latest) sent to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Some 58 fusion centers were created by the Department of Homeland Security in the wake of 9/11, supposedly to help fight terrorism through local data intelligence gathering. This is not the first time that one of these fusion centers has criminalized anyone outspoken against tyrannical government control and the destruction of the Constitution of the United States and the rights of the American people.

The Missouri Information Analysis Center, or MIAC, which Fox News describes as, “a government collective that identifies the warning signs of potential domestic terrorists for law enforcement communities,” identified Constitutional militia members and even Ron Paul supporters as potential terrorists.

Oath Keepers, meanwhile, is a nonpartisan group made up of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders who have pledged simply to fulfill the oath all military and police take — to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” [emphasis added]

It’s that part about Oath Keepers standing up to defend the law of this land, our Constitution — something Homeland Security has been actively destroying since its inception with leaked DHS training videos referring to America’s founding fathers as domestic terrorists and ludicrous actions like the creation of “100-mile inland Constitution-free zone” checkpoints around the nation’s border, that seems to be the real issue here.

Branding liberty minded groups and those that would stand up for our rights and the Constitution as potential domestic terrorist threats is essentially branding them as criminals, setting them up under a dubious legal framework, and paving the way to make government dissent a crime.

    The Nobel Peace Messiah has declared Peace everywhere, but here in the “Homeland.” Oh wait, He’s pretty much declared war everywhere else as well. Andy summed it up pretty well. Molan Labe!

  • whitefeather

    Pretty much agree with all that, except it’s more of a Progressive/Fascist thing than a Right/Left thing. We are getting hit from both sides Andy…..

    The oath creepers,deep down they are a bunch of turncoats!!

  • Paul Prichard

    Someone must keep telling these politicians and these agencies that the Constitution is the only thing that gives them authority and without it they are just gangsters in pretty suits.
    Having said that some of these agencies are extra-constitutional.

    So I take it that DHS does not like ‘secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity’ part of the preamble of the Constitution.

  • June Gagnon

    Suffice it to say Oathkeepers are NOT the threat; the latter consists of those commie liberals who insist that they are!

  • Undecider

    It’s pretty clear that it is the government whom is the extremist threat.

  • Denis George Miller

    anyone or group who does not bow down to oblama is a terrorist . when will you get the message and learn to accept your fate? /sarc off.

  • chthompson

    Nobody takes the regime’s BS seriously anymore, especially cops. Find me one who doesn’t think Obama is a danger to our nation and I’ll give you money.

    It’s no different in Connecticut the scumbags that make the laws wile all the time protected by armed security” have been trying their damndest to depict all of US liberty minded people in a negative light to further their socialist agenda and add fuel to the bullshit HB1160 bill in hopes of destroying more of our rights!
    A good portion of US took the same oath they did the difference being It Meant Something To US !

    When MIAC released its report in Missouri, it raised all kinds of hell here. My husband spoke before the legislative hearing held about it, and MIAC was forced to withdraw the report and on a statewide level, confidence in its intelligence has waned to the point that it is no longer taken seriously by law enforcement in the state. The problem is, as a whole, New York is a highly liberal state while Missouri is highly conservative, so I’m doubtful the same thing would happen. Very concerning.

    You have to love our fusion centers. While they are keeping us safe from domestic terrorist Oath Keepers, they are hiring Chinese spies to run their technology departments, giving them access to sensitive US databases, and then being astonished when they suddenly don’t show up to work because they ran back to China. But hey — the Oath Keeper Menace will be contained!

    Oathkeepers ARE a threat! They’re a threat to the tyranny, subjugation, and control of our government upon we the people!

    As a retired senior NCO from the US Army I can attest that the last thing you need is a bunch of barracks lawyers interpreting the Constitution to suit their own personal partisan agenda.
    OathKeepers latest list of orders they won’t obey when combined with their partisan/paranoid views on our elected government makes them a threat to discipline and good order.
    My attitude toward OathKeepers while I was serving was ambivalent; I considered all of us to be bound to our oaths but believed there was some good purpose for this organization.
    The Bundy ranch changed all of that for me. When I saw Stewart Rhodes march his people out into harms way to defend a deadbeat cattle rancher/Sovereign Citizen from a legitimate court order, I realized they were as partisan politically as they were ignorant Constitutionally.
    Having a non-conventional/arbitrary view of the Constitution is fine but you have to prove your view in court. OathKeepers and the so called patriot movement however don’t want to use the courts, they believe that their opinion and contrary views on the Constitution plus their guns equals a mandate and right to bypass our process.
    By cynically and falsely invoking pseudo-Constitutional arguments and distortions of history they seek to justify their treason and have the temerity to actually call it patriotism; it is not. In their minds, any changes of Constitutional advances since it was first ratified are either illegitimate or allow them to disobey and ignore them.
    I encourage anyone in the military to avoid this group and not believe their lies when they claim to be non-partisan and to understand that you do not have the right to make up your own interpretation of the Constitution.

    Really? So when a thief robs a bank he simply has to say he didn’t agree to that “contract”?
    By virtue of your citizenship you are bound to follow the rules of your nation. If you do not like the rules you are free to try and change them. if you don’t like that you are free to leave.
    You are not free to pick and choose which laws you will obey because “nobody asked you”.
