“However, an investigation of site ownership and client lists funding the “Patriotic Revolt” were not what we expected.  The “patriots” that were going to replace the armed militia’s of the 1990’s  were actually the Republican Party, their phony “think tanks”  and the largest multi-national corporations  in the world, representing defense, oil, insurance, big pharma, big tobacco and “clean coal,” a veritable “who’s who” of world class criminals.”

This week, FBI agents began storming locations throughout the Midwest, starting with Minneapolis and then Chicago.  The purpose they claim was to stop peace groups that they allege are a danger to the American government’s war effort.  However, the largest “official” domestic terrorist act was the bombing of the Oklahoma City Federal Building by individuals affiliated with, of all things, the Republican Party and the Michigan Militia.  To be accurate, the Militia claims Timothy McVeigh wasn’t an “official” member but only attended meetings.  It wasn’t his Militia efforts that made McVeigh a terrorist but rather his conservative politics and his tendency to act on rhetoric where others used common sense.
Thus far, we are rejecting evidence that McVeigh, a decorated war hero, was working as an FBI informant, despite considerable evidence to the fact.
In fact, the Michigan Militia disbanded with the Bush election claiming they were “no longer needed.”  Seeing the FBI hunting down peace groups who were initially affiliated with the Obama campaign is a shock, no, it is more than a shock.

The “organs of state security” are now rounding up the supporters of the President and covering for groups that threaten our government with violence, some openly advocating armed rebellion and assassination.  This is more than irrational and unbelievable.

In fact, we are flabbergasted.
The moment Barak Obama was nominated for the presidency, “grass roots” groups sprung up around the country, surprisingly similar in make-up to the current Tea Party, not only in look but rhetoric and demeanor.  When Obama easily defeated Senator McCain, those same groups, continual assassination threats, mock lynchings and vicious racial rhetoric changed from “conservatives” to “anti-government” radicals overnight.
But these weren’t “grass roots” organizations at all, but something far more sinister, more threatening and much more dangerous as we were to learn.

Websites sites like www.resistnet.com, oddly close to www.resist.com, the voice of the Aryan Nation, a white nationalist group, were quickly established and emails spread across the country, originating, as we were told, from the poor and downtrodden, the “Patriotic Resistance” that was going to shed its last drop of blood to protect America from wealthy corporations and the financial thieves who were sucking the blood out of the working classes.  Every day we were told to prepare to resist a government “out of control,” one planning to disarm America, one waiting to put patriotic citizens in concentration camps run by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Administration) but controlled by the United Nations.  Americans were told to “prepare.”

Even though every trace of those funding the violent and extremist views now presented as an “uprising” of “the people” against their own government have been professionally scoured by security operatives, the secret lists were secured and held in archive.  The nation had been told by conservative talk show hosts employed by the major media outlets that all funding for such efforts came from the savings of individuals, workers, the unemployed, small farmers, clergy.
However, an investigation of site ownership and client lists funding the “Patriotic Revolt” were not what we expected.  The “patriots” that were going to replace the armed militia’s of the 1990’s  were actually the Republican Party, their phony “think tanks”  and the largest multi-national corporations  in the world, representing defense, oil, insurance, big pharma, big tobacco and “clean coal,” a veritable “who’s who” of world class criminals.
Now these same billionaire corporate bandits and “banksters” claim to be “intellectual force” behind the Tea Party movement.   Can this new guise, another “lipstick on a pig” attempt to pass of America’s ruling classes as victims of “big government. fool the Tea Party?  If Sarah Palin and Glen Beck,retread hucksters from another era are an indication, the answer may be a resounding “yes.”
