FBI warns extremist letters may encourage violence

Associated Press

The FBI is warning police across the country that an anti-government group's call to remove governors from office could provoke violence by others.

A group that calls itself the Guardians of the free Republics wants to "restore America" by peacefully dismantling parts of the government, according to its Web site.

As of Wednesday, more than 30 governors had received letters saying if they don't leave office within three days they will be removed, according to an internal intelligence note by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. The note was obtained by The Associated Press.

The last group to openly declare war on some of these same governors was the GOP. And as I recall, this bold proclamation may have been made back in 2004. And just look at what happened to those that made these statements the first time around! For from what I recall, I think that all of them wound up loosing their jobs. Tough break.

In the 1998 movie, "Enemy of the State," the FBI and an old-school spook (Gene Hackman) came to the rescue of an attorney (Will Smith) unjustly targeted by community-based domestic terrorist vigilantes who were aided and abetted by other secretive government agencies (John Voight) and commands and their "black ops."

Perhaps life is imitating art, and today's FBI (as opposed to Bush-Cheney's FBI) is saving the nation from elements within that could be construed as a rogue bureaucracy -- that apparently is usurping local police power by way of a mid-Atlantic states gestapo-like "centcom" right in the heart of Bucks County, PA.

When will the mainstream media start reporting on THIS:
