We Are Told, Part Deux

From Joel, in part:

‘Sovereign Citizen’ Terrorist Group May Be Growing in U.S.
American law enforcement officials view sovereign citizens as the No. 1 potential terrorist threat in the United States, according to a 2014 study.

For those who ask, “Uncle Joel, in your deep wisdom and experience, could you please explain the ‘Sovereign Citizen’ movement for your audience?” I must reply…

No. I really can’t. I’ve hung with these guys and I can’t tell you what it’s about. It’s sort of a cargo cult law-as-ritual thing where if you add this particular incantation to a legal document any judge in the land is forced to throw up his hands, exclaim “Curses, foiled again” and let you off to do as you will, and everybody knows about this one guy who did that and it worked. Somewhere. Fringes on flags in courtrooms have something to do with it. People have sat me down and tried very earnestly to explain it, but I’m hopeless as a lawyer. Or a whacko.

So Sovereign types as the #1 terrorist threat in the land? Having a hard time buying it. And the article’s narrative isn’t helping…

Certainly there are enemies of the Constitutional Republic.  Both foreign AND domestic.

Remember the Sons of the Gestapo, who pulled off the train derailment of The Sunset Limited in Arizona a few years back?  More like the Sons of the Pioneers!

Or perhaps the result of an agent provocateur in place, stirring up the faux-militia crowd.  You know, a community-organizer sent by government to enrage the weak-minded of the patriot crowd.

Remember your Criminal Law – When the idea of the criminal act originates with law enforcement, it becomes entrapment!

We DO have enemies – both foreign and domestic, including those who would foment crimes to solve them to make their stats look good!

These government agents, too, are enemies of the Republic.

    I’ve been amused by these types in the past. Never *in person* have seen one that didn’t eventually have the ‘I’m gonna go to jail’ lightbulb come on and decide to stop the rant.

    The train derailment I had forgotten about over the years. A quick interweb search brought up some curious hits…
    Funny how things like this are BIG NEWS! for a bit only to be never mentioned again.

  3. These guys like to spout some really slick sounding, but semi-convoluted screed about how they don’t owe any taxes top anyone. They’ve tried it in court and went to jail over it. Many are outright dangerous recalling the pair that showed up in West Memphis, Ar several years ago to hold some little shop where they spread their dogma. They eventually were killed there by police after killing one or two of the police..

    I think it’s Congress that constitutionally has the power to levy taxes. They wouldn’t have that power if no one was required to pay them. I like as few as possible, but I pay what I have to.

    If one studies what was happening out at the Bindy Ranch in Nevada, he really starts to look like one himself.

    These folks are best avoided. They can be very dangerous.
