There really is a Missouri Information Analysis Center. Is MIAC Strategic Report 02/20/09 The Modern Militia Movement an authentic MIAC product? Looks authentic.
Rightwing extremists and militia leaders continuously exploit world events in order to increase participation in their movements. Due to the current economical and political situation, a lush environment for militia activity has been created. Unemployment rates are high, as well as cost of living expenses. Additionally, President Elect Barack Obama is seen as tight on gun control and many extremists fear that he will enact firearms confiscations. White supremacists from within the militia movement have further become angered due to the election of the first African American President. Many constitutionalists within the movement have claimed that President Elect Obama does not meet the residency requirements to hold the office of President, and therefore his election is unconstitutional.
Newer versions of the NWO conspiracy have been concocted in order to empower the movement. The NWO is seen as using law enforcement, military, national guard, and federal agencies in order to carry out its elitist one world government. Law enforcement and military forces are believed to be utilized in order to confiscate firearms and place individuals into FEMA concentration camps. This scenario has received additional attention due to the US Army NORTHCOM assigning homeland securityh functions to an active duty Infantry Brigade. The movement sees this brigade as the force that will take their firearms and that the unit is in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act. There are also concers that the banking and media infrastructure are also being controlled by the Jewish elite and that these leaders are members of the NWO. There is a great deal of anger towards the Federal Reserve System (FRS) and all forms of tax collection.
There are significant differences between the 1990’s era militia and those of today, most notably:
Highly Trained: Militia members are receiving more professonalized training than they did during the first spike of the movement in the 1990’s.
Leadership training: Militia members are receiving advanced leadership and operational planning training. This has allowed for the establishment of a strong Non Commissioned Officer Corps (NCO) within groups. An NCO Corps allows operations to be run at the fire team and squad size. This enables units to conduct multiple operations simultaneously; “Complex attacks”. This training will also enable individuals to form and train their own organizations.
You are the Enemy. The militia subscibes to an anti-government and NWO mindset, which creates a threat to law enforcement officers. They view the military, National Guard, and law enforcement as a force that will confiscate their firearms and place them in FEMA concentration camps.
Is this really what Missouri law enforcement officers are being told?
Better watch your speed if you have any Constitutional Party, Campaign for Liberty, or Libertarian Party material in your car, or any Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin or Bob Barr bumper stickers.
UPDATE 200903140118: Commenter annette reports
The Modern Militia Strategic Report is genuine. I called MIAC and was referred to public relations at 573-526-6115. An officer returned my call and verified that it is real, and was distributed to the Missouri police departments.
Looked authentic to me, too, but was leery of the source. Run up on that site often in the course of my own IO research and am not a fan, but I must relunctantly concede that they have found an acorn.
I was a close observer of the Clinton-era Militia Movement. The Obama era is shaping up to be even worse, and so will be the push back. The concepts of government by consent of the governed, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, and the Right of the People to alter or to abolish any Form of Government that becomes destructive of the ends it was instituted to meet, and to institute new Government laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness, must be ridiculed, and their adherents demonized, if would-be tyrants and their lackeys are to sleep well at night.
The smart Militia Man (and there are some) will understand the operant conditioning at work here, and avoid confrontations at times and places not of their own choosing.
UPDATE 200903141408: ‘Fusion center’ data draws fire over assertions
“If a police officer is pulling me over with my family in the car and he sees a bumper sticker on my vehicle that has been specifically identified as one that an extremist would have in their vehicle, the guy is probably going to be pretty apprehensive and not thinking in a rational manner,” Neal said. “And this guy’s walking up to my vehicle with a gun.”
