FBI Monitors Northwest Dissident Groups
Dissidents Believe the Wrong Things
In a wide variety of publications over the Internet and other media the announcement has gone out that an FBI task force has been dispatched to the Northwest, ostensibly for the purpose of monitoring anti-government groups in the area specifically of Northern Idaho and Montana. Spokane's Spokesman Review related in a story dated December 20 that "agents and officers will use a sophisticated computer network that will be bought and installed by the FBI. The local computer system presumably will be linked to the FBI's computer database known as the Terrorist Information System. It contains information on more than 200,000 individuals and 3,000 organizations." The story went on to report that one FBI official stated, "With the coming of the millennium an increase in domestic terrorism is something that concerns us nationwide."
An article posted in USA Today December 23 by Patrick McMahon, revealed more of the paranoia which seems to be motivating this action.
FBI battles terrorism in Northwest --The FBI is launching a task force on domestic terrorism in the Pacific Northwest, long considered a hotbed for white supremacist and anti-federal government activities. The action comes as anti-supremacist activists in the Northwest fear an increase in terrorism coinciding with the year 2000. "We anticipate that 1999 is going to be a pretty tough year," says Bill Wassmuth, executive director of the Northwest Coalition Against Malicious Harassment based here. Already, there is talk about "Doomsday" and "Armageddon," among these groups, Wassmuth says, and paranoia about the possible computer collapse at the beginning of the year 2000, commonly called the Y2K problem. He says these groups fear the federal government secretly favors collapse of the financial system and other social institutions, so that it can abolish personal freedoms and establish world government. That is the No. 1 topic at preparedness expos organized by the anti-government groups, Wassmuth says. "There are people buying two years of food and supplies and heading for the hills." His group is a coalition of organizations in six northwestern states countering white supremacist and extremist groups.
The pressure seems to be mounting as clandestine FBI activities raise suspicions among some organizations that such actions are being intentionally orchestrated by government agencies and groups like the Northwest Coalition Against Malicious Harassment to precipitate a confrontation. While the news reports state that the FBI is battling terrorism, it seems more accurate to say they are battling dissenters. Terrorism may be manufactured but terrorism is not anymore active in the Northwest than anywhere in the world. At this juncture, it's the FBI who appears to be the local terrorists to many residents here. A local store owner in Sandpoint, Idaho who spoke to The WINDS stated, "I feel the government is planning a confrontation." An employee of a local Sandpoint, Idaho mail order house related to The WINDS that a secret room is being outfitted with computers and other paraphernalia where she works and that the employee was told it was to be a command center. Little other information was known.
Whether this information is true or just imagined, it reveals a foreboding of a number of North Idaho residents that the government cannot be trusted. This fear seems well founded since evidence continues to mount that governmental forces have not been up front in reporting their activities. As reported in a previous WINDS editorial, Scott Ritter of UNSCOM stated that the last inspection in Iraq was a setup fabricated to cause resistance in the Iraqi leadership which would justify an attack on the nation. Former chief U.N. weapons inspector Scott Ritter says U.S. officials prodded inspection teams to return to Iraq last month to provoke a crisis to justify bombing. He said,
What Richard Butler did last week with the inspections was a setup. This was designed to generate a conflict that would justify a bombing. ...If you dig around, you'll find out why Richard Butler yesterday ran to the phone four times. He was talking to his National Security adviser. They were telling him to sharpen the language in his report to justify the bombing.
This evidence of Clinton underhandedness is feared as an omen of the future for the Northwest. It is feared by many that the FBI will cause a minor reaction from some group of citizens which will be allowed to escalate to a large event as a pretext for a general clearing out of all groups antagonistic to new federal goals. Some believe that North Idaho, the hotbed of homeschoolers, Christian fundamentalists and national constitutionalists will be cleared out under the pretext that they belong to terrorist or racist groups. Instead of Desert Fox, you would have operation Idaho Snow or operation Grizzly Bear.
The obvious red flags involved in this FBI move is not that there are people in the Northwest who are bombing banks and the FBI needs to respond to that, but that there are people in the Northwest who believe that in 1999, or soon after, the FBI or some other government agency will create an event which will justify a general invasion of all those entities not happy with the theme of the New World Order. What this amounts to is that the government is acting in regards to what someone is believing rather than any real lawless activity. The days of freedom to believe what one wants to believe seem to be past. Recent Clinton actions have revealed new governmental policies aimed at preemptive strikes rather than simply responding to emergencies or crimes.
One Idaho resident stated, "We will just let them come without resistance. If they start something, we will just watch them carry it out. Freedom of speech is not yet outlawed and we will fight them with our words." It remains to be seen, however, whether freedom of speech is still functioning as a human right. When freedom of speech is used, sometimes it is labeled "hate speech," and somehow that disqualifies it from the freedoms Americans enjoy.
Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily made this observation on December 23:
Though President Clinton said he issued the order to further his goal of promoting human rights around the world, it's important to understand exactly how the U.N. defines "human rights."
That definition is offered in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which talks about the right to freedom of thought, conscience, religion, opinion, and expression. All good stuff, until you realize who the ultimate authority is. Who is the sovereign that imparts such blessings upon the populace of the world?
The answer to that question is stated unequivocally in article 29 of the U.N. document which states: "These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations."
In other words, we have freedom of speech until it is used against the principles of the United Nations. In the fourteenth amendment to the constitution we may find written, "No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
The Constitution of the nation was clearly violated near Waco. There are ways to abridge the Constitution and our current government seems to be running toward that abridgment with all dispatch. Our national government has already repudiated every principle of the Constitution. In regards to this, the United Nations' statement on human rights removes most of those rights Americans have valued. The statement on human rights is the Constitution now in force in national politics and we all have those rights unless we use them.
The U.S. Constitution in Article I, Section 8, vests Congress with the power to declare war. This historic principle was abridged by the War Powers act. Now our president can, whenever he likes, attack any nation without congressional approval, that is--without citizen approval. This and other constitutional principles have been overthrown.
This very object was laid out in the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. It reads:
"We shall invest the president with the right of declaring a state of war. We shall justify this on the ground that the president as Commander in Chief of the armed forces must have the military at his disposal in case he must defend the new constitution which is his right to defend as its sworn representative."
This decree flies in the face that it is only Congress who can make war. These simple examples of constitutional revision are now being enforced. The illusion of constitutional government has been kept before the people to give them the feeling of safety and to cover the reality that they are in chains and that there are no real rights afforded the citizens of the country.
There are many in our country who soundly reject anything written which comes from the Protocols. The media and others invent strong opposition to them. There is no wonder. It exposes everything they are up to. Who would want their planned crimes paraded out in front for everyone to see? While Idaho and Montana have been host to some vocal expositors of the deceptions laid out in front of us all, there appears to be on the horizon a correction coming. For those who were so quick to buy the party line in regards to the "evil" Saddam, these northwestern folks may soon be classed with the "evil" forces of darkness and they will be awakened to how their government works, if they are not already. While the United States labels Chinese dissidents as dissidents, it labels U.S. dissidents as anti-government, right-wing extremists and white separatists. The real term for the Northwest dissenter might be Protestant. It may be well for us to remember the past. Jesus was accused by political and religious forces for sedition. He was crucified for protesting.
Thomas Colton Ruthford recently sent a letter to the Washington Times which read:
Being a Nazi [in pre-war Germany] was "politically correct." They called themselves "The Children of the New Age of World Order" and looked down their noses at everyone else. As Hitler acquired more power, he referred to his critics as "The Dark Forces of Anarchy and Hatred." Anyone who questioned Nazi highhandedness in the German press was branded a "Conservative Reactionary." Joseph Goebbels, minister of communications, proclaimed a "New World Order."
...Hitler demanded that all good people register their guns so that they wouldn't fall into the hands of "terrorists and madmen." Right-wing fanatics of the "Old Order" who protested firearms registration were arrested by the S.S. and put in jail for "fomenting hatred against the Government of the German people."
Then the Reichstag (government building) was blown up and Hitler ram-rodded an "Emergency Anti-Terrorist Act" through Parliament that gave the Gestapo extraordinary powers. The leader then declared that for the well-being of the German people, all private firearms were to be confiscated by the Gestapo and the Wermotten (federal law enforcement and military). German citizens who refused to surrender their guns when the "jack-boots" (Gestapo) came calling, were murdered in their homes. By the way, the Gestapo were the federal marshals' service of the Third Reich. The S.W.A.T. team was invented and perfected by the Gestapo to break into the homes of the enemies of the German people.
...The Gestapo began to confiscate and seize the homes, businesses, bank accounts, and personal belongings of wealthy conservative citizens who had prospered in the old Republic. Pamphleteers who urged revolt against the Nazis were shot on site by national law enforcement and the military. Gypsies and Jews were detained and sent to labor camps. Mountain roads throughout central Europe were closed to prevent the escape of fugitives into the wilderness, and to prevent the movement and concealment of partisan resistance fighters.
Public schools rewrote history and Hitler youth groups taught the children to report their parents to their teachers for anti-Nazi remarks. Such parents disappeared. Paganism became the state religion of the Third Reich and Christians were widely condemned as "right wing fanatics."
...World Order was coming and the German people were going to be the "peacekeepers."
Yes, indeed, I remember the Nazis and they weren't Republicans, or "right wing," or "patriots" or "militias." They were Socialist monsters.
Could it be that the "right wing," "anti-govenment militia wacos" are the future targets of the new Nazis? It is evident that the forces that be are designing a way to track and eliminate the prophets who are against them as did Der Fuhrer. I wonder why our national media takes every opportunity to speak against Der Fuhrer and the holocaust, yet say nothing when it comes to U.S. citizens? When no crimes have been committed, yet secret police networks track hundreds and thousands of citizens because they have a belief about something, there will soon be a confrontation of their own making. It is as if the confrontation is designed and purposed. This raises the specter of the Communist revolution and the Nazi dictatorship.
The specter of Waco looms large in the minds of some of the residents of a large area of Northern Idaho and Montana as well as the rest of the country. With the Branch Davidians, the government devised a plan of attack to provoke a violent response so that there would be justification to annihilate the entire complex, children and all. David Koresh could have been arrested any day of the week out on his jog before the initial invasion. A 16 year old girl could have been sent to the door with a warrant and all would have gone well. Instead, after the Davidian group was incited to react in self-defense, the government agents who were killed could be used as a tool of public opinion against them. In recent years, in America and in international military actions, powerful forces are at work to eradicate any dissent against the new one world power now being brought into reality.
This art of provocation was in today's news. American planes were targeted for violating Iraqi air space. American warplanes shot back justifying it on the grounds that they were shot at. America does not own Iraq, yet, it behaves as if it does. Americans killed about a dozen soldiers after they were fired upon. If enemy planes were flying over the U.S., it seems that we could not justify their presence here. By provoking Iraq to attack, Americans try to hide the reality that we are an aggressive force. In this way we can kill their people while appearing justified in that act. It should be remembered that no state of war has been declared against Iraq by the U.S. Iraq is a sovereign nation under international law but it is treated as if it is not.
Whether or not the Y2K computer problem will be the event some expect, it is appearing that something big for Y2K is in the winds. The pieces are being put in place for a large confrontation in the Northwest between the citizens and the government. Governmental forces expect it and are planning for it. It has been observed that the federal government does not plan such campaigns for the purpose of simply getting some exercise.
Such portents stir many people to attention, and one wonders why it is that the polls hold the presidential actions in such high esteem. The WINDS has monitored many active polls. These "active" polls are those that are hosted by CNN, ABC and others on the Internet. When one votes on these polls the results are released immediately. Virtually every poll we monitored had a 60% response who felt the President should be impeached or removed from office. The WINDS poll was 95% in favor of that. Yet, when an ABC non-active poll is published, it reports a flip-flop of those numbers. A full 60% and sometimes 70% is the President's approval rating. This would lead one to believe that those polls are rigged. The media seems to be intentionally setting out to create the context for how it desires the report to appear rather than what people are actually thinking and saying. Certain public interviews are made, but only those with the party line are placed in front of the camera, leaving the impression that the majority of the people want it the way it is reported. Since the Senate is influenced by the polls, we may well see the media picture accepted by them as fact and vote for the polls rather than the true public sentiment. If active polls are not used, no real or truthful answers may come from them. They can be manipulated in any number of ways.
Other factors enter in here. While a large number of Americans want the President impeached and out of office, many of those do not want to rock the boat. They would rather leave it to someone else than confront the issue. Americans do not like being made uncomfortable. In this aspect they favor the status quo and are partakers of the corruption they say they do not approve of. When looked at it in this light, truly 70% or more of Americans prefer silence to action. By this action their freedoms deservedly are forfeited. This dissent in the Northwest is a little glimpse of what is occurring worldwide, but it is made to appear to be a local problem that our faithful secret services can eliminate for us.
The current affairs bring to light a statement in Scripture. "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day [the coming of Christ] shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, KJV). The Scriptures state clearly "Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you?" 1 Cor 3:16.
This is a clear revealing of the event now occurring. When earthly rulers sit in the place of our conscience and personal inalienable freedoms whether Iraqis or Americans, those rulers oppose all and exalt themselves above all that is worshipped. They sit in the temple of God showing themselves to be God. When this occurs it is no longer in the realm of civil government. This enters the realm of one's religion and faith. Remember that it is written, "Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's." The American government does not own the soul of its citizens. Conscience belongs to God. My faith is God's property and the state must keep its hands off that property unless it wants to perish for the crime of stealing from God.
This is what gave the Catholic Church its deadly wound. During the Middle Ages the Papacy believed everyone should be brought under one head. Wars were fought and believers killed for not submitting to the Roman Pontiff. This was the first beast of Revelation 13 which received a deadly wound. The Pontiff was taken prisoner and died imprisoned. The United States is filling the part of the second beast of that chapter. The United Nations and The United States are exercising all of the power of the first beast. All men and nations are being forced into the one world government. Besides this, men's consciences are being forced using devious military tactics and media propaganda. This is why these institutions are named antichrist. They are against Christ, since they assume the prerogatives of Christ.
While it is true civil government is a product of our creation and the citizens ought to conduct themselves appropriately, it is also true that national leaders are not gods nor are they kings. They are not even Caesars. They are public employees. The Branch Davidians were the employers of those military forces which attacked them. Our employees are not to act the part of kings or gods. They are to humbly obey the wishes of the citizens and quietly go about their business doing so. When they begin to act as kings or dictators, it is appropriate that they are fired and new employees be selected to do the business of state.
The FBI task force is coming to the Northwest. These employees are coming to monitor their employers. Many of the residents in the area think it would be better if they stay home. When citizens are set up to be criminals for simply believing something for the purposes of the new political agenda, the powers that be will find out, after all, that things will not turn out as they had supposed. They will fall into the pit that they dig for others to fall into.
