Yes, There IS a Domestic Threat in America. It’s Our Own Government

The federal government loves labeling folks who think differently from them as domestic terrorists. We’ve seen it multiple times over the years and this name-calling has picked up recently.

The flames are being fanned.

There was Joe Biden’s speech casting Trump supporters as villains.  The attacks on dissent are nearly constant. Celebrities are being praised on outlets beloved by millions of young people for walking away from their own families over politics.

Everything is meant to be divisive, to cause even more internal strife in America before the midterm elections by painting approximately half of the country as the enemy. No longer are differing opinions a constitutionally protected right – they’re practically criminal and seen as a reason for hatred.

And now, there’s a vile comparison to 9/11.

Regardless of what you believe happened on September 11th, I think we can all agree that it wasn’t a bunch of Trump voters hijacking planes.

More recently, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Mark Warner, compared those who participated in the events on January 6th to the people responsible for the devastating attacks on September 11th.

On Face the Nation, Warner said:

“I remember, as most Americans do, where they were on 9/11. I was in the middle of a political campaign and suddenly, the differences with my opponent seem very small in comparison and our country came together. And in many ways, we defeated the terrorists because of the resilience of the American public because of our intelligence community, and we are safer, better prepared…

…The stunning thing to me is here we are 20 years later, and the attack on the symbol of our democracy was not coming from terrorists, but it came from literally insurgents attacking the Capitol on January 6th.”

This is deliberately orchestrated to make coming together as a nation impossible.

So who is the real threat?

Who’s actually the threat right now? Is it your neighbor with the lawn sign for an opposing candidate, out there watering her roses in the late summer drought? Is it your obnoxious uncle who makes every family get-together unpleasant by voicing opinions you’d rather not hear?

Or is it someone else? Here’s what Tulsi Gabbard had to say about it.

I think Gabbard is right. The biggest threat to our country right now is the politicians and public figures telling us how much we should hate and fear each other. In this article, Selco talks about being bombarded with fear and hate right before the Balkan War. Are we being any less manipulated by our own media today?

We need to stand up and refuse to be manipulated like this. We need to find common ground with our fellow Americans again, because divided like this, we’re sure to fall.

But what do you think?

Who are the people actually causing our country to stagger under the weight of hatred? Why can’t we all just agree to disagree like we used to? What would it take for us to unite again as a nation?

Let’s discuss it in the comments.

  • There was a time when people recognized the importance of walking in another person’s shoes. There was a time when people could agree to disagree and look past the disagreement. There was a time when people didn’t automatically self identify as a “victim” because they thought or spoke differently. Human Spirituality was cognitively recognized to be an important trait that allowed us to Forgive and Forget. I don’t see that characteristic in large parts of society anymore.

    • Concerned Citizen,
      There was a time you could talk freely, voice your opinion with someone else, and even if you disagree with each other you still at least considered their point of view.
      Now, you are attacked for even questioning or holding a differing opinion is considered “violence.”

      • Ironically, those who espouse the “violence” rhetoric that you speak of, is brought to us via the “Party of Tolerance”.

      • I had a friend who was fairly far on the left, but even when we disagreed we did so politely and retained our mutual respect.

        That all changed lately. We were having a discussion and came to a point of disagreement when she flew off the handle and resorted to insults and shouting. It was so distressing that I had to excuse myself and end the conversation.

        I am not sure what is going on; whether the Left is removing their masks and showing their true selves or if there is some spiritual force ginning up this hatred from the Left.

        Maybe both.

  • Just read an article about a woman who had the FBI show up on her front door after they received a ” anonymous tip” that she was at the Capitol on January 6th.
    She politely invited them in, showed them her calendars that she was not at the Capitol on January 6th.
    I find that creepy, and not necessarily against the FBI but on multi-levels.

    • Snitches get stitches. Old neighborhood motto.

      I’m the first to live and let live. Be respectful of a different perspective. Listen, talk and -when necessary-educate. But..there’s that old neighborhood motto niggling at my brain that solved more problems than not.

      I can not stand a rat.

    • Yes against the fbi, too. An American citizen shouldn’t be investigated because they attended a protest. It’s unConstitutional.

      There was zero evidence against the woman. There couldn’t be any evidence – because she wasn’t even there.

      What’s happening now is Soviet-style government.

    • Yeah, but I have to say, assuming the facts of this story as presented are accurate, she should not have invited them in.

      Those in power are trying to intimidate and instill fear in all Americans so we don’t put our differences aside and join together to save our nation.

      • Some of us are still trying to come to terms with the fact that freedom loving Americans are now openly seen by the government as the enemy.

        We are not in Kansas anymore.
        We need to stand on our rights.

        Ask to see the warrant. Do not talk without your attorney being present. Do not waive any rights, EVER.

  • Daisy, I think that there has been a problem with our government for hundreds of years. It comes from electing people who are the best at manipulating the populace. Even from the onset, the federal government has struggled against the restraints placed on it by the Constitution. The only difference between then and now is that it is SO blatant and SO obvious that we’ve become divided into two camps – those who want to exploit government power for their own ends and those who just want to be left alone to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

    I would appreciate it if you would join us on SafeChat – they have not (as far as I can tell) succumbed to the leftist cancel culture as most other platforms have. If you do, look me up – I’ve left my link in the guest info – throw me a message and let me know you’re there.

    • The problem with government WouldHeBearIT is that the citizens (your church and your friends and family) are as far as educating themselves about the Constitution and our system, are dumber than a box of rocks and too lazy to do what it takes to keep government in check. The most blame goes to the pulpits of America and the cowards and morons that will not speak out like they did in 1776.

  • The problem is that we repeat falsehoods. Take your bit about Trump supporters. Biden made it pretty clear that he was talking about just MAGA diehards in his speech. He specifically said not all Republicans nor all Trump supporters. But a subset of those who could not change or at least those who weren’t accepting of others. We saw the same thing with Hillary’s basket of deplorables. She didn’t say all, she said half of his supporters. Which meant that half weren’t deplorable. But every Republican said, “She is talking about me”. Well if the shoe fits, then I guess it does. But if you aren’t deplorable, then it doesn’t. But the right wing media comes out and says that Biden insulted all Republicans. Thats the problem right there. Thats the fake news we hear about all of the time. And it isn’t only Republicans. Democrats also get it too. The far left wing of the Democratic Party is pretty socialist. But the majority aren’t. How many times do we say Democrats are socialist when we really should be saying that some Democrats are socialist? We blame the bad actors of each party but use it to describe the entire party. We used to be able to “agree to disagree “, but somewhere along the way, we quit being able to do that. Thats where we need to return.

    • I am a registered Independent.
      Didn’t vote for Trump.
      But I find my self agreeing with a number of the MAGA ideas.
      Legal immigration and a secure border. 2021 saw the most drug related deaths (overdoses) in US history (source: MSNBC).
      School choice, and get politics out of our public schools.
      I see nothing wrong with America first policy. How much money have we sent to the Ukraine that could of done a lot of good here in the US?
      Pro-police with oversight. People should feel safe in their cities and communities. Against the cashless bail, repeat criminals back on the streets, to go on to commit more crime.
      Secure elections and I dont see anything wrong with having to show ID to vote.

      In some people’s eyes, to include Biden’s speech, that would make me a MAGA diehard.

      • I am a registered libertarian, but I don’t always vote party lines. I also did not vote for Trump. His rhetoric sounds great, but his action speaks louder. This is the man who bragged about renegotiating NAFTA. Yes he did, but it was not for the American peoples benefit. If you read the deal then you would know he gave power to the large corporations. To me Trump is a dark horse. Most of what has gone on has been a show.

        Less than 1/2 hour ago I got a reverse 911 call telling me to stay inside and lock my doors, because a large group off illegals were heading this way. 100 years ago there was a book that said America would fall through weaponized immigration.

    • MAGA voters are Trump voters. THAT’S who Joe is addressing. 74,000,000 people who simply don’t believe Joe was elected to anything. Investigators in AZ found thousands of fraudulent ballots. Investigators in MI and PA are also finding fishy election procedures.

    • It doesn’t matter entirely WHO they are talking about or the weaponized media is talking about. That speech in PA was horrible. They are already raiding people. It won’t matter if you are MAGA Republican, Republican, Independent or Democrat. This is already a danger. The greater population is already being weaponized against. This what communist and socialist regimes do if you study your history. Then people die.

    • I voted for Trump in 2016 and 2020. UltraMAGA. Christian Nationalist. Conservative. Republican until something better comes along.

      I haven’t rejected anyone out of my life for their politics, but my neighbor got her knickers in twist because I voted for W. in 2004 and doesn’t speak to me; a family member went off on a diatribe and unfriended me on fb because we’re conservative. Sadly, my pastor is a Democrat. I haven’t canceled any of them but neither will I remain silent when they give their opinion.

      Yours is the side of “one rule for me, but a different rule for thee”.

    • Interesting perspective James. I can only speak for myself. I am an American. It’s as simple as that. Never in the history of our nation has a person in the White House threatened tens, if not hundreds of millions of Americans.

      It doesn’t matter what your politics are, because using the “us vs. them” game is just another mechanism to keep us divided and under their control. They care nothing about individual human rights or freedoms.
      We have a bunch of psychopathic human beings who want to retain power and control at all costs.

      Thomas Jefferson is reported to have said “The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite.”

      Human civilization on this planet is sliding back into the dark ages – and millions around the planet, including those I’ve gotten to know who fled totalitarian regimes to come to America – still look to the USA to pull humanity out of this mess.

      We can do it!

    • Does not help when you have MSM MSNBC pundits claiming,

      “Obviously, Republicans are, I think, the biggest threat to democracy. We don’t separate right-wing extremists and Republican Party anymore.”
      “These days it feels like we’re not just that the brink of Civil War, but that one has already begun.”
      -Tinffany Cross

    • How about Democratic Congressman Tim Ryan saying,

      “How do we fix all of these broken systems? Some of those answers will come from Republicans. Not the extremists that we’re dealing with every single day. We’ve gotta kill and confront that movement.”

      What does that even mean?
      As I stated previously, there are things some people would call “MAGA” that I do not have a problem with or would agree with.
      Does that mean I have to be killed and confronted?

    • What is wrong with being die-hard MAGA?
      Is it a crime?
      Is it right for an American politician to vilify a group of law abiding citizens just because they oppose him politically?
      Isn’t Biden’s attitude perilously close to that of Hitler’s when he vilified the Jewish people in Germany in the 1930’s?

  • Tolerance has been a four letter word to the extreme left for decades. PC speech and wokeness are all part of the plan to divide us, Balkanize us if you will, so we destroy each other. This is all straight out of the Marxist Manifesto, Rules for Radicals and even Khrushchev’s table pounding speech back in the 50’s.

  • This article is a nice sentiment but, it’s all coming too little too late for common ground. The time to listen to the other side and find common ground died generations ago. America had its chances to find common ground during the 1960s . But the leaders that could have led America to justice and peace where either killed, jailed, or driven into the shadows of history. All America can do now is wait for the inevitable- THE FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE 2.0

    • Sandra, I respectfully disagree with you. I’ve met and worked closely with too many human beings from all over our planet who feel the same way when it comes to finding common ground for the benefit of human civilization on this planet. This is a lot bigger than just America.

    • There is far, far more common ground than you think, Sandra. After decades apart, I had some in-depth discussions with my mother when she visited for my daughter’s high school graduation. She votes Dems, I vote Reps, but when we discussed what we wanted to see in our country, we agreed on almost everything. A few days ago, my neighbor amused me by using the word “Republican to mean “bad.” I told him we might vote differently, but there was one thing I bet he would agree on: at the top, the officials in Washington are almost 100% Very Bad. Sure enuf, he agreed. Most MAGA folks would agree–and most Dems. We DO have common ground.

  • There are enemies who want to destroy this country. They are traitors. Too many of the leadership in the Democrat Party have been bought off by foreign enemies who want us to destroy ourselves in a civil war, so they can invade and take us over. Some in the Republican Party have also been bought off by the same foreign enemies. The majority of the mainstream press are also traitors, trying to incite us to civil war. We need to disappoint those traitors by not starting a civil war.

    The foreign enemies who want to invade and take us over are Putin’s Russia and Xi’s China. If we remain united, we can defeat them in their planned invasion.

    “He who fires the first shot, loses the moral advantage.” said Robert Toombs, then secretary of state for the Confederacy. It was for that reason he opposed the attack on Fort Sumter. The side in our present division that fires the first volley, will lose the support of even many of its followers. Therefore, those of us whom the present government in DC is targeting, need to be very careful not to fire the first shot.

    • biden and his followers are trying to push conservatives into firing the first shot. Democrats have gotten so much enjoyment out of the Jan. 6 protest, they can’t wait for an encore. And they want it before the mid-term elections.

      • I agree! If you’ve ever been bullied, that is exactly what they are doing. Plain as day. Don’t fall for it, you give them power. We need to overwhelm the polls in November. And then some.

    • R.O., you are exactly correct. I speak those very words frequently to everyone around me who will listen….well, except for the last paragraph.

      • R.O….I’m going to add your last paragraph to my talking points next time the topic comes up in conversation with someone.

    • We the People are the government, not those who are elected or appointed to act on our behalf. They work for us, have gotten too big for their britches, and no longer serve in our best interests.

      Every American needs to call, email, fax, and show up in person at your Congressman’s offices all over the country and demand these people be removed from office.

  • The “government” (merely comprised of your idyet ay-whole neighbors who needed a job) is the ONLY enemy mentioned in The Declaration of Independence.

  • It’s unfortunate that 100% of the FBI agents don’t resign in protest. There should be mass resignations all over the place in D.C.

  • One thing I would like to see is election laws prohibiting the listing of candidates’ political parties on a ballot. The office at top and then the candidates by name only.

  • “Southern strategy”, “states rights”, “contract on america”. The Civil War is not over for some (I’m talking the 1861-1865 war). The laws passed during the Great Depression still rankle the children/grandchildren of those vehemently opposed. IMHO, the government dropped the ball which allowed 9-11 to happen – more worried about tax cuts and permanently being in power.
    Some folks just can’t handle change and yearn for the era in which he (usually he) believes life would have been better. I went to school with a girl who insisted she continually be pregnant than have to go into the military. Guess it never crossed her mind that after child one, the powers that be would have ensured no more pregnancies for her.
    No simple answers to complex problems but the US would be better served if a single issue didn’t drive so many votes.

  • The irony of 87,000 new IRS agents is that there is no law that imposes an income tax on sovereign citizens. Taxation is a matter of sovereignty. That over which the taxing authority is not sovereign is not a suitable object for taxation.


    If a tax upon the labors of a Sovereign Citizen properly existed it would authorize the subordinate government to seize 100% of a Citizen’s earnings. ‘Reasonable’ is not a justification for a tax. It is not a matter of concern to the court if the tax destroys the object being taxed. Such a law would authorize slavery. No such law exists.

    LIBERTY, enshrined in the 5th and 14th Amendments, include the Citizen’s opportunity to Pursue a Livelihood as a fundamental Right. Such Rights, including your Right to a trial by jury, are not suitable objects for taxation or fee. If it were otherwise, the Rights could be priced out of existence.

    26 USC #1 authorizes an income tax on the “taxable income” of an individual. ‘Taxable income’ is not defined. If you wish to donate to the government, they will take your money—and demand more. [87,000 new IRS agents are getting hired to harass ‘terrorists’]  This statute is never alleged to be violated in an indictment.

    26 USC #871 imposes an excise tax upon “non-resident aliens” for the privilege of being permitted into the USA.

    Violations of 26 USC ##7201-7215 are frequently alleged in indictments. The Supreme Court, relying upon the Congressional Record, has identified those penalty statutes as applying to all taxes in Title 26. They cannot allege violation of a “known legal duty” required for a valid indictment.

    The IRS relies upon a citizen signing a tax form, under oath, over the caveat of “taxpayer’s name” to identify you as legal responsible for a tax. You have just sworn that you legally owe a tax. The court accepts your affidavit. The income tax is a scam.

    Lawyers who aggressively make this claim face lose of license and HAVE been sent to jail on bogus charges.

    State courts have repeatedly covered up similar challenges to state income taxes, earnings taxes, and occupational licenses, to avoid an exempt precedent from becoming established.

    IRS Exempt Tax form #4852 has been claimed by Pete Hendrickson as successfully recovering prior years’ income taxes erroneously paid to the IRS.

    Former IRS special agent Joe Banister, after repeated unsuccessful efforts to find a statutory income tax with the help of his supervisor, separated from the IRS.

    WARNING: The location of the “burden of proof” (BOP) is critical. Due Process requires the Petitioner to prove the validity of any claimed authority. If the BOP can be shifted by the court to the citizen to prove the tax authority does not exist, they will require proof that there is no possible way the tax might be valid. Such a proof is impossible. This shift doomed the Springer case. Springer v US, 102 US 586, (1881).

    The Supreme Court declared Springer’s claim the income tax was an unapportioned Direct Tax and therefore Springer’s claim was not valid. The court added that the only alternate Constitutional tax was an indirect tax of either an impost, a duty, or an excise tax. Since a duty or impost relates to merchandise crossing a territorial boundary, by deduction, an income tax must be an excise tax.
    An excise tax is based upon a privilege being received. This writer does not see any privilege being received by a Sovereign Citizen upon which the government of the United States can properly base an income tax.

    Tax denier Sherry Peel Jackson was convicted of tax charges in 2008. A government website declares several tax protester theories by Jackson were denied by the court. There is no claim the court declared the income tax did not improperly infringe on Constitutional Rights. The court’s shift of the BOP doomed her case.

    The 16th Amendment attempts to expand the definition of income; it does not expand, nor restrict, the Constitutional taxing authority. A claim that the Amendment authorizes unrestricted taxing authority would stand the Constitution on its head. The courts do not have jurisdiction to impose a coup.
