Sheriff Palmer, a man elected by and for the people in Oregon, is under investigation by the Feds, who they claim he is some sort of security leak.
The difference between the other sheriff, federal agents, and Sheriff Palmer is not a difference of actions, but a difference of opinion. Sheriff Palmer has sympathy for the people of his county who elected him and whose livelihoods are being destroyed by overbearing federal mismanagement.
“The DOJ is looking to ‘tweak' the Patriot Act and prosecute anti-government extremists. And of course by their definition and this is a definition provided b the Southern Poverty Law Center, “Anyone who pushes back against the government, who criticizes the government is essentially an anarchist and a terrorist”.
Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder, Jr. on Monday announced the creation of a task force within the Justice Department to combat an “escalating danger” from “homegrown” terrorists within the United States.
The task force will chiefly comprise leaders from the FBI, the Justice Department’s National Security Division and U.S. Attorneys. Called the Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee, it is a recreation of a task force formed by former Atty. Gen. Janet Reno after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. The task force fell into disuse after 9/11.
Though the original task force, which was little known, focused mainly on right-wing zealots, Holder’s version is aimed at U.S. citizens or visitors radicalized via the Internet.
By this definition, Sheriff Palmer is an anarchist because he chooses to follow the Constitution over Obama's executive orders, or the BLM's policies that infringe on the rights of Oregonians.
Now an emboldened federal government is casting the net even wider in their pushback against the new Sagebrush Rebellion. An Oregon sheriff, Glenn Palmer, has just been accused of being a “security leak,” and the state of Oregon has asked the Oregon Department of Justice to investigate the sheriff in order to revoke his police certification, effectively removing him from office.
David Knight rightly states, “But the sheriff’s persecution serves as another example of the federal government’s desire to label all dissent as terrorism.”
And so the government rightly perceives that Americans are restive and angry, wondering why government elites control so much of their lives and their wealth, and pondering how they can regain the country for the people. The government sees this as potential insurrection, and it does not intend to give one inch, rather the plans are to stop the rebellion before it starts, and to take away even more rights and freedoms in the name of keeping the peace.
