    “More Americans Targeted By FBI Than Muslims”: The Real Surveillance Is A Tool of Control

    Editor’s Comment: The whole situation is whipped up hysteria on all sides; if they set the economic tilt of the tables right, the tension and pressure would all quickly diffuse. If the roaming war machine in the middle east would back off or slow down, it would exponentially curb the hatred and violence from radicals and terrorists “over there.” As Ron Paul and many others have long argued, it is the deliberate continuation of blowback. The same is true with the migrant crisis… if the elites didn’t want a flood of unstable refugee people from an incompatible culture, why did they push so hard for war there – that is specifically what is driving the entire crisis into Europe and America alike. But they have shamefully done it on purpose and by design to destabilize and drive a wedge between ideological segments of the population.

    Who exactly does the FBI work for? It has been so busy targeting Americans and placing mass surveillance across population centers that they have failed to protect America’s borders from potentially threatening aliens, etc. Extremists among the conservatives on the right, or the patriot community, or the angry left have all been driven to extremes at times. But in the last cycle, the media frenzy has been guided towards pinpoint accuracy in its use as a weapon to divide and conquer people, to stir up rage and distrust between people, and to fish for headlines and further justifications for power.

    Shock Report: FBI Arresting Far More Americans Targeting Muslims, Than Muslims Targeting Americans

    by Claire Bernish

    As President Trump and supporters continue the push to levy an arbitrary travel ban from a smattering of predominantly Muslim countries, a debate rages in the United States about the validity — and effectiveness — of preventing terrorism by strangling immigration.

    Now, simple data can put that debate to rest.

    “Since January 2015, the FBI has also arrested more anti-immigrant American citizens plotting violent attacks on Muslims within the U.S. than it has refugees, or former refugees, from any banned country,” writes Nora Ellingsen for Lawfare.

    Ellingsen would know, too, after having worked for the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Counterterrorism Division for five years, she left for Harvard Law School — but has tracked statistics closely for Lawfare since. And Ellingsen remains cagey to unreported information — she knows what is likely taking place behind the scenes, even when it either isn’t or hasn’t been disclosed to the public.

    In a recent article titled, “It’s Not Foreigners Who are Plotting Here: What the Data Really Show,” Ellingsen explains,

    “The Program on Extremism at George Washington University has routinely published statistics indicating that the ‘vast majority’ of individuals charged in the U.S. with offenses related to ISIL are U.S. citizens. When considering all terrorism offenses, that claim holds up—80 of the 97 suspects arrested in the past two years, or more than 82 percent, are American citizens.

    “Most of those, notably, are not naturalized citizens. Of the U.S. citizens, only six were naturalized. In other words, more than 76 percent of individuals arrested by the FBI over the past two years for terrorism-related offenses were U.S. citizens as a result of having been born in the United States.”

    Americans present a far greater threat to Americans than immigrants from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, or Somalia — the named countries in Trump’s disputatious ban.

    But even naturalized U.S. citizens haven’t committed or plotted to commit acts of terrorism on American soil. According to the aforementioned statistics, two of six naturalized citizens emigrated from Bosnia, which didn’t make the list — nor did Israel, staunch U.S. government policy driver, and original home of the third naturalized citizen, who had been convicted on charges of terrorism previously.

    “Nihad Rosic and Mediha Medy Salkicevic,” Ellingsen continues, “emigrated to the U.S. from Bosnia, a country not on Trump’s list. While in the United States, the government alleges that Rosic and Salkicevic raised and sent money to individuals fighting with ISIL in Syria and Iraq. Both men contributed money from their personal savings, while other members of the conspiracy sent supplies including tactical gear. At one point, Rosic attempted to leave the country to join ISIL as a fighter overseas. Neither subject plotted an attack in the United States.

    “Another naturalized citizen, Rasmieh Yousef Odeh came to the United States from Israel—a country that’s really not on Trump’s list. Odeh’s case is unique; she was charged with immigration violations for failing to disclose a previous terrorism conviction in Israel. Now 68 years old, Odeh was convicted in Israel for her role in the 1969 bombings of a supermarket and the British Consulate in Jerusalem, which were carried out on behalf of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP.) In the past two years, Odeh is the only convicted terrorist to slip through the cracks and immigrate to the United States. However, the indictment makes no charges that she was engaged in any sort of terrorist activity while living in the Chicago area.”

    Here’s where the statistics get really interesting. While the remaining three naturalized citizens did, indeed, emigrate from nations Trump takes issue with, but not for anything pertaining to his ostensible terrorism concerns.

    Two men — one from Iraq, the other, Syria — “were not charged with material support to terrorism, but with making false statements to law enforcement,” and “nothing in the public court documents suggests that either subject engaged in attack plotting in the United States.”

    Exactly one naturalized citizen from the travel blacklist engaged in activity related to terrorism, as Ellingsen explains,

    “Of the six naturalized citizens on our list, there is exactly one from a newly banned country who was charged with material support to terrorism. Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud emigrated to the U.S. from Somalia. In April 2014, Mohamud traveled from Ohio to Istanbul and onward to Syria, where he received weapons and explosives training. In June 2014, Mohamud returned to the U.S., where he told an acquaintance that he wanted to attack a military facility or a prison, killing U.S. military members.”

    So, if perpetually-paranoid Americans aren’t threatened by immigrants from the apparently Sinful Seven countries, who should they fear?

    Techdirt turned to an article from Slate, which explains the ‘real terrorists’ truly are closer to home than nervous, law-abiding Americans might think.

    “Our politicians say they’ll stop these killers. They talk about building walls and vetting refugees. If we were serious, we would do it. We would seal our borders against North Carolina,” Slate’s William Saletan implored.

    “North Carolina? It sounds absurd. When we think about immigration and terrorism, we think of Syria. But that’s not where our casualties are coming from. On Friday, a gunman killed three people and wounded nine more at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado. The suspect is white American Robert Lewis Dear. When police apprehended Dear, he uttered one telltale phrase: ‘no more baby parts.’ People who have known or met Dear say he wasn’t a regular churchgoer. But they also report that he believed devoutly in the Bible and that he claimed to have read it ‘cover to cover.’ In an online forum, Dear apparently spoke of Jesus and the ‘end times.’ He painted or posted crosses on at least three of his homes.

    “Dear moved to Colorado last year from North Carolina, where he had been living. For two decades, the Tar Heel State has been a hotbed of religious extremism, fueled by clerics who preach holy war. The result is a stream of interstate terrorism.”

    Saletan, of course, speaks tongue-in-cheek, yet keenly encapsulates — through a list of domestic terror attacks carried out by North and South Carolinians — how immigration restrictions of any variety serve only to placate xenophobes.

    After all, Saudi Arabia didn’t make the list; Israel didn’t make the list; Afghanistan didn’t make the list.

    Terrorism doesn’t practice one religion, or have a single nationality. It doesn’t have a specific appearance, gender, motivation, cause, or mindset.

    You can’t fight terrorism by ignoring facts — and the fact is, we have our own terrorists. No matter how constrictive the restrictions on our borders get — even if Trump shut down immigration, entirely — the United States creates terrorists at home and abroad at an alarming rate.

    A closed border won’t change that. Indeed, the only way to lessen the chances a terrorist will attack on U.S. soil is for the U.S. to rein in belligerent, imperialist foreign policy, bring the military home, and use its bloated budget to begin patching the physical and emotional holes in this country.

    Banning legal immigrants only deepens those wounds.

      Islam is incompatible with American Constitutional values. Deport !!! Deport !!! Deport !!! 🙂

      • FreeSlave says:

        Islam is incompatible with American Constitutional values.

        To say otherwise would be to lie.

        If folks want to renounce their Islamic faith, and stay, then fine.

        Otherwise, there are many Islamic countries that welcome you.

      • It is amazing how facts can be used. Interpreting the facts leads ms. burnish to a conclusion very different than my own.

        Out of hundreds of millions of people, there are sure to be some who are dangerous for various reasons. So what? Bringing more people into an overcrowded, overly diverse, angry mob does not help. It only makes matters worse.

        Stop all immigration and deport illegals and criminals.


    2. Jim in Va. says:

      We are just setting ourselves up for a big attack. We’re going to look mighty stupid after a huge attack afterwards because the FBI looked in the wrong place for the wrong people.

    3. The Deplorable Braveheart says:

      It’s not a smart thing for the FBI to target GOOD Americans like that. If they were going after LIBTURDS instead, then they would be doing something useful for a change.

    4. TEST says:

      Gerald Celente, at Trends Forecasting, at his finest. Listening as I work… a bit long, over 30 min, so listening in bits and pieces… Enjoy!

      I’m sure this website comes under NSA’s watchlist for: right-wing subversive.

      • T4R2 says:

        Well, if it didn’t, it sure does now.
        Thanks for the plug!

      • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

        I always knew I was in the right place.

        • Plan twice, prep once says:

          Beware of people with pressure cookers, who know how to use them! St. Patrick’s day is coming and there’s gonna some great sales on corned beef….. Last year I did especially well the day after, put four briskets in the freezer.

          If the FBI is watching, we may just post recipes, and on another note, if my phone was tapped, please tell me who that crazy lady is that keeps calling to help me with my credit, solar panels, electric bill, fix my computer, I believe this lady is part of a major terrorist cell that commits fraud and steals millions from people…..

          But alas, it’s more likely the FBI is still going after Tea Party grandmother types.

          • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

            PTPO, I get several calls a day from scammers during the week. They never call on the weekends. When a number I don’t know shows up on my caller ID or the number is blocked, I just refuse the call. You can always use your own discretion about whose calls you accept. Ignore anyone who says you have to answer your phone regardless of who it is. Things NEVER work that way with me.

      “Banning legal immigrants only deepens those wounds.” I don’t think our President is calling for banning legal immigrants. Yes, some Americans may want “all” immigration banned, but that is not what the Trump Admin. is calling for. I think most people just want immigration laws to be enforced, and limit it so as to not put an un-necessary financial burden on our already stressed economy. Yes, you are going to have some degree of what they refer to as “home grown terrorist”, but I believe there is more danger of terrorism from Muslim countries simply because their religious philosophy incorporates violence in their teaching. Read the Koran; there are at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. This is not radical Islam, this is Islam period. The FBI would target Americans more, but only because they are trying to quell any civil disobedience that could interfere with their agenda. The FBI illegally spy on law abiding citizens. The FBI considers you a potential terrorist if you are an Evangelical Christian, anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-Muslim, anti-immigration, and on and on. So yes there would be more Americans targeted. All people on this sight, SHTF, would be considered a potential terrorist by the FBI’s criteria. There is at last count still more American citizens than Muslims in the US.

      Trump puts Terrorists in the whitehouse!!! Just today I read the headlines Robert DeNiro is joining Robert Kennedy Jr. In the stance that Vaccinations are not good for you, or your children. Let us not forget that that Mike Pence feller claims to be a Christian. (right wing values). Oh and what about Ms. DeVoss, Who believes that Parents should have a right to determine what kind of Education their children get. These people were considered for the terrorist watchlist around 92. Rightwing extremists all. Terrorists Oh my.
      As each day goes by Trump scratches another reason Why we are considered terrorists. That document read Maricopa County Terrorist watchlist from FBI. It can be found at I think. Then there is the list of 72 things that define a terrorist.
      This article sounds like an agenda was being addressed. Why aren’t we hearing about the camps established in our states.

    8. mangledman says:

      Oh Shoot!! I forgot Constitutionalist are terrorists too!!!
      Keep swords sharp and yur powder dry

    10. GrandpaSpeaks says:

      And who fosters and enables this clash of civilizations, this destruction of nationalism? We all are distracted by the speck of dirt in our eye when it was the wind that blew it there. But of course to correctly place the blame one must understand it is the Sun that drives the wind. Shield yourself from the wind but do not blame it. Nationalism is our sunscreen. It is what puts goose bumps on our flesh when hearing a spectacular rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. Globalism will never achieve that. Play that anthem for the prospective immigrant, those with goose bumps are in. Trump is looking for cheaper ways to do things, there you go. Those that are offended by this approach can leave with the smooth skins. Realism is not racism, no bumps, no quarter.

      • orsobubu says:

        Nationalism belongs to the XIX century. Starting from 1900, as Lenin teaches, imperialism kicks in, as markets become too internationalized for single nations to cope with; global market competition requires an international projection. Imperialism was successfull because based on: monopolism, financiarization, capitals export, international fight for market quotas, fight for geopolitical strategic domain.

        Today US – which has a strong isolationist connotation – is in difficulty, because, after emerging as the absolute winner from the imperialist world wars, it struggled with an abroad war for every generation of americans, in order to prevent the decline, but this startegy didn’t avoid the rise of new imperialist marauders, which are well equipped being less isolationist: Europe, China and others.

        Also the islamist are trying an imperialist projection. You call this phenomenon “globalism”, and you’re wrong because it is scientifically called imperialism. Imperialism is unavoidably connected to capitalism. If you want capitalism today, you need to be an imperialist winner. Aossibility is that US people are too tired to engage in new wars, the resurgence of nationalist spirit is a symptom of this decline.

        The only way out is internationalism, in other words a libertarian communist revolution abolishing wage work, salary, surplus value, capital, market and money. The road to anarchism.

    11. PO'd Patriot says:

      No the real Americans are a threat to the erosion of the constitution and their God given rights.

    12. eagle1 says:

      Every time you stop at a light you are being searched with out Cause! Tag readers, too! Who the heck cares if I went to pick up toilet paper!

      Same with debit card purchases the list can go on forever anymore!

      It used to be a crime to be pervert (peeping tom)what bunch of nosy freaks! Even dumber are the people who think its O:K!

      Garlic and herbs look good, today. Turned the soil today its nice and black!

    13. flabbergasted says:

      That’s because it is the Islamists and their sympathizers that are WATCHING us!!

    14. Surveilling the FBI says:

      “Who exactly does the FBI work for?”

      The answer to that question is with Mr. Comey and his behavior. Just look at how Comey was determined to let Hillary off the hook, even to the point of making himself look like a complete incompetent clown.

      Comey works for the same people who were determined to see Hillary become president.

      I hope Trump knows what he is doing by keeping Comey on.

    15. marty says:

      We shouldnt be surprised they love to set up americans with crimes they fabricate. Ruby Ridge , Waco, Texas , The Boston bombing 911 the list goes on and on of the depravity of this govt Agency of domestic terror.

    16. alexzandria monrovia says:

      Don’t expect the situation to get any better because as time goes on the federals will only become more corrupt, criminal, autocratic, authoritarian, hostile, out of control, and dangerous to the American people and this republic.
