News about the new 18-page plan was first reported by Reuters on October 19. It represents the first time the administration’s “policy for preventing violent extremism” has been updated, the establishment-controlled media organ reported. “The policy aims to prevent conversions to all violent ideologies,” Reuters reporter Julia Edwards added, citing the document, which still does not appear to have been released publicly. It was not immediately clear what constitutional or statutory authority the White House imagines it possesses to police people’s ideologies, or to hijack local governments to interfere in people’s personal beliefs.
According to Reuters, the White House “strategy” will be to unleash so-called “intervention teams” led by “mental health professionals,” faith-based groups, educators, and others “as a resource for people who find themselves in such circumstances.” These draconian “intervention teams” will then work to “divert a person” away from supposedly violent ideologies before they actually commit any violent acts or even any crimes. It is sort of like “pre-crime,” just more Orwellian and totalitarian.
If targets of Obama’s “community-based intervention teams” do not abandon the prohibited ideology through “mental health” and other interventions, “law enforcement” will be brought in to use more coercive measures. And if a person is believed to “pose a threat” or be “capable of committing a crime,” law-enforcement action will be taken, the policy states. In other words, “law-enforcement” action begins before a crime has even been committed — even before a target plots or conspires to commit a crime, which is of course already a crime in and of itself. Literally everyone is “capable” of committing a crime. The implications of the developments should be triggering alarm bells nationwide.
The increasingly politicized and lawless Justice Department and “Homeland Security” Department also have a big role to play in the new plan, according to media reports. Among other schemes, they will be super-charging their ideological propaganda campaigns, using taxpayer funding to illegally promote Obama’s ideology under the guise of countering ideologies Obama and the establishment disagree with and paint as violent.
The two bureaucracies will “enhance their social media campaigns to counter people being drawn to violence,” Reuters claimed matter-of-factly, without adding any details on how federal propaganda efforts — prohibited under federal law — would prevent anyone from being drawn to unapproved ideologies. The scheme may be related to a new “behavioral science” program Obama unleashed that aims to “nudge” and manipulate Americans to support everything from the man-made global-warming ideology and vaccines to Big Government and globalism.
As The New American reported last year, in the interest of defeating allegedly extreme ideologies with “better ideas,” Obama touted some of his administration’s policies at a UN summit announcing a global jihad against ideologies such as what the UN described as “anti-Muslim bigotry” in a press release. Among other schemes, he pointed to “efforts to discredit ISIL’s propaganda, especially online,” an apparent reference to his recently unveiled “Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications,” a federal propaganda machine led by Muslim Brotherhood-linked Islamist Rashad Hussain.
In other words, it appears that the federal government is now officially and openly waging all-out war on the God-given freedoms protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. These include free speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the press, and more — some of the most fundamental liberties; indeed, freedoms that the government was actually created to protect.
Unsurprisingly, Reuters and the administration both implied that the latest scheme was aimed at groups like the Islamic State, or ISIS. Yet, in reality, official Pentagon documents confirm that Obama knew al-Qaeda was leading the revolution in Syria, supported it with weapons and money anyway, and outlined as a deliberate policy goal the establishment of an Islamist “principality” in eastern Syria — an Islamic State today known better as ISIS or Daesh. Meanwhile, the administration has been importing Muslims into the United States as fast as politically possible, and both ISIS and the U.S. government acknowledge that ISIS terrorists are among them.
Thrown in among the myriad reported Islamic terror attacks purporting to justify the new White House scheme — San Bernardino, California; Orlando, Florida; and New York and New Jersey in 2015 and 2016 — was the brutal terrorist attack on Christians in South Carolina. In that case, a drug-abusing National Socialist (Nazi) named Dylan Roof reportedly massacred church-goers in Charleston. Incredibly, the Obama administration and the radical left have tried to paint the anti-Christian socialist-minded collectivist druggie as a conservative right-wing activist.
