The Obama administration has quietly rewritten the rules on how it goes about designating Americans as terrorists, according to a new report by Glenn Greenwald’s Intercept online investigations project.
The report details how Obama has expanded the terrorist watch list system, “authorizing a secret process that requires neither ‘concrete facts’ nor ‘irrefutable evidence’ to designate an American or foreigner as a terrorist,” according to a key government document obtained by the Intercept.
Instead of actual evidence, all the government need is the nebulous “reasonable suspicion,” which is considered one the lowest standards of proof in the American legal system. It’s less than “probable cause,” which is required to make an arrest.
Greenwald, a former investigative reporter for the U.K.-based Guardian who broke the Edward Snowden story about NSA spying on Americans, left the newspaper late last year to start the Intercept.
A 166-page document obtained by Intercept titled “March 2013 Watch listing Guidance” was issued last year by the National Counterterrorism Center. It identifies for the first time the government’s secret rules for placing people on its main terrorist database, as well as the no-fly list and the selectee list, which triggers enhanced screening at airports and border crossings.
The federal government shares its watch list data with local law enforcement, foreign governments and “private entities,” Intercept reported.

That is my opinion of you AND YOUR INEDOLIGIES!
Nothing to see here folks - move along . . . . . Just another big government invasion of Our lives - - - - another way US are becoming US-SR
Let's see how Michelle Bachmann's Bill to have the Muslim Brotherhood placed on the List of Terrorist Organizations plays out. Democracts will be Forced to vote - at least in the House - 'nay' and Republicans will have the golden opportunity to SLAM them on it until November. IF they have the Guts to do so, which they have thus far shown they haven't.
I'VE BEEN ON GOVERNMENT WATCH LISTS MORE YEARS THAN I CAN REMEMBER! I LIKE THE COMPANY! F&@K THAT MARXIST MUSLIM COMMUNIST "DICTATOR" AND THE DONKEY THAT HE RODE IN ON!
I WILL IGNORE THEM UNTIL THEY FORCE ME TO DO OTHERWISE, THEN I WILL FIGHT, AS I AM ABLE, UNTIL THEY KILL ME. I WILL NEVER SUBMIT TO THEIR INTENDED SUBJUGATION OF ME. ACTUALLY, IT IS VERY SIMPLE FOR THEM. LEAVE ME ALONE OR KILL ME. THERE SHALL BE NO MIDDLE GROUND. IT IS ALSO SIMPLE FOR ME. I WILL BE "OWNED", BY NO MAN, BUT BY GOD ONLY. IF YOU ALSO ARE A MAN, THEN ALSO SHOULD YOU SO COMMIT.
this a country in crisis.....the problem is bigger than just anyone political party or anyone person including the liar and chief. part of the problem is American society has deteriorated to where right now approximately 50% of the population lives off of the gov't which in turn means roughly half the tax paying society is supporting the other non tax paying half of the society or your basic garden variety socialism at work. that being said as more and more of the population(over 50%) becomes dependent on Gov't there will be increasingly less chance of removing the current unconstitutional gov't simply because of the volume of population dependency-gov't(big gov't)knows this all too well-and I mean both sides of gov't republicans and democrat/socialist know this and are damn sure hoping you don't figure it out or don't care or remain sufficiently ignorant enough not to do anything meaningful about it. Obama has about 33% of the population that is his base and another 25% who are indifferent or who are currently not committed and then the illegals coming across the border which are also potential voters for the democratic party 2016 and will make up the difference in his voter base loss due to abysmal performance. you take into account that realistically impeachment is likely a non starter due to the fact one must prove legal standing prior to the high courts hearing said case and I am not at all sure legal standing could be proven in enough time that would make a difference before 2016 presidential elections-given the last two presidential elections I don't put much faith in the majority vote in this country-you got to wonder at a country that elects a thief in the night as president not once but twice then turns around and complains at all the freedoms they are losing-revolution sounds better and better as each day passes but even that comes down to numbers meaning is there even enough of us that would actually engage in said revolution that would or could make a meaningful difference??
While your Gadsden flag is certainly amusing, it totally misses the point. It is NOT just the Obama administration that is the problem. By giving the federal government access to (almost) unlimited money [via the income tax], we give them (almost) unlimited power. ALL administrations are going to be overreaching UNTIL we cut off the money. We have to fix the underlying problem rather than wrankle at its present implementation.
this covers every point there is!!
OBAMA,S PRIME DIRECTIVE or agenda !!!!
How to create a socialist state
There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a socialist state. The first is the most important.
1) Healthcare - Control healthcare and you control the people
2) Poverty - Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live. seize all personal property
3) Debt - Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty and more poverty means you can more easily seize all personal property such all property is owned by the Gov't or state
4) Gun Control - Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state via martial law
5) Welfare - Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)
6) Education - Take control of what people read and listen to - take control of what children learn in school.
7) Religion - Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools
8) Class Warfare - Divide the people racially as well as wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) from the wealthy with the support of the poor.
In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh , had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship." "The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage."

It doesn't hurt to read this several times.
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul , Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:
Number of States won by:
Obama: 19 Romney: 29
Square miles of land won by:
Obama: 580,000 Romney: 2,427,000 Population of counties won by:
Obama: 127 million Romney: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:
Obama: 13.2 Romney: 2.1
Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the .territory Romney won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.
Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..."
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population
already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase..
If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegal’s - and they vote - then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.
THIS IS CORRECT: THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS CONTROLLED BY ELITISTS THAT WANT TO STAY IN POWER AND COTROL OF AMERICAN RESOURCES AND RICHES. THEY ARE "LIMMO LIBERALS" WHO HAVE VAST WEALTH AND POWER AND HAVE SUCKERED THEIR LEFTIST BASE INTO BELIEVING THEY CARE ABOUT THEIR LIBERAL CAUSES ( eg.AL GORE, HILLARY AND BILL, NANCY PELOSI, JOHN KERRY, HARRY REID--- ALL VERY WEALTHY INDIVIDUALS AND BECAME SO THRU CAPITALISM ) BUT ARE COMPLETE HIPOCRITES. THEY ARE MAKING PEOPLE DEPENDENT ON HANDOUTS AND WILL ATTEMPT TO MAKE ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS VOTERS, LEGALLY OR BY ILLEGAL AND FRAUDULANT MEANS, WHICH IS WHY HOLDER IS FIGHTING VOTER ID. AND CLOSING THE BORDERS NATION WIDE. THEY DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT JOBS AND REAL EDUCATION, THE ENVIRONMENT OR ECONOMIC EQUALITY, BUT THEY WANT THEIR BASE TO THINK THEY DO. ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS AND THE DEMOCRAT LEADERS ARE "FIXING THE NUMBERS" TO CEMENT THEIR POWER BY SELLING THE FOOLS THAT BELIEVE THEM DOWN THE RIVER AND BY MAKING PEOPLE AS DEPENDENT ON GOVERNMENT AS POSSIBLE, THUS NO REAL JOBS PROGRAM BY OBAMA AND HIS CRONIES. THEY HAVE HIRED MORE GOVERNMENT WORKERS AND HANDED OUT MORE FOOD STAMPS AND WELFARE THAN ANY OTHER ADMINISTRATION. THEIR GAME IS PLAIN TO SEE AND WILL HURT THIS COUNTRY BIG TIME FOR MANY YEARS IF ALLOWED TO STAND. VOTE THEM ALL OUT AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY. ANY REPUBLICAN IS FAR BETTER THAN A DEMOCRAT AND A BIG STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRCTION.
