Missouri Information Analysis Center and Patriots

Today on Truth Farmer radio show, I will be speaking with a fellow Missourian, Tim Neal about this report and the ever strengthening police state being developed in the nation. Later I will try to post a link to the report itself, but for now, please read Chuck Baldwin’s response to what has been served up for all of those who love this country.

My Response To MIAC Report
By Chuck Baldwin

By now, readers should be familiar with the Missouri Information Analysis
Center (MIAC) report dated 02/20/09 and titled, “MIAC Strategic Report: The
Modern Militia Movement.” In this dreadfully malicious and slanderous “law
enforcement sensitive” secret police report, Governor Jeremiah (Jay) Nixon;
John Britt, Director of the Missouri Department of Public Safety; James
Keathley, Colonel, Missouri State Highway Patrol; and Van Godsey, Director
of MIAC categorize certain citizens as being potential violence-prone
“militia members.” I would venture to guess that more than 75% of the entire
population of the United States would fit the MIAC’s broad definition of
someone who would fall into the aforementioned category.

According to the MIAC report, if you oppose any of the following, you could
qualify for being profiled as a potential dangerous “militia member”:

The United Nations
The New World Order
Gun Control
The violation of Posse Comitatus
The Federal Reserve
The Income Tax
The Ammunition and Accountability Act
A possible Constitutional Convention
The North American Union
Universal Service Program
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
Abortion
Illegal Immigration

Again, I would bet that at least 75% of the American people would oppose at
least one or more items on the above list. Well, according to the MIAC
report, that is sufficient to make them potential dangerous “militia
members.”

However, it is the following statement contained in the MIAC report that is
particularly disturbing to yours truly. Under the heading “Political
Paraphernalia,” the report states, “Militia members most commonly associate
with 3rd party political groups. It is not uncommon for militia members to
display Constitutional [sic] Party, Campaign for Liberty, or Libertarian
material. These members are usually supporters of former Presidential
Candidate [sic]: Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr.”

The obvious inference of the above statement links Ron Paul, Bob Barr, and
myself to potential dangerous “militia members.” The broader implication is
that the millions of people who supported Ron Paul, Bob Barr, or myself are
likewise categorized as potential dangerous “militia members.” This is a
classic case of broad-brushed police profiling. Can you imagine the fallout
of this preposterous report had the names Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and
Maxine Waters been used instead of the names Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and
Bob Barr?

Accordingly, Ron Paul, Bob Barr, and I wrote a formal letter to the
above-named Missouri officials demanding “that the following-described
document be immediately removed from any and all websites associated with or
maintained by the state of Missouri or any agency thereof, including the
MIAC; that the said document no longer be circulated by the state of
Missouri or any agency thereof or associated therewith; and that the state
of Missouri repudiate its references to the three of us contained therein.”

Ladies and gentlemen, we simply cannot allow this kind of police profiling
to continue. I assure you, this phenomenon is not limited to the State of
Missouri. Every state that has a “Fusion Center” is being fed this kind of
nonsense on a regular basis. You and I are commonly referred to as
“extremists” in these secret police reports. This has been happening in
earnest for the past couple of months and is operating under the auspices of
the federal Department of Homeland Security. And people with a public
platform (such as myself, Ron Paul, Bob Barr, and a host of others) are now
being singled out by name. How long will it be before police agencies begin
“picking up and hauling away” those people whose names are mentioned in
these reports? It may be sooner than we think.

To see if your state has a “Fusion Center,” go here:

The only thing that will stymie this nonsense is a huge public outcry
opposing it. Yes, the people of this country (that means YOU) still have the
power to put a stop to this kind of totalitarian thinking. If we do nothing,
however, it will soon be too late to stop it. We either stop it now, or it
will quickly mushroom into a leviathan that will both monitor and control
the personal opinions and speech of every man, woman, and child in this
country. No, I am not exaggerating.

The Feds already monitor virtually every phone call, email, and public
speech in the country. How long before these secret police reports will be
used as justification to arrest and incarcerate people because of their
ideas and opinions, labeling them as a “threat” or as “dangerous” to
society?

Here is the contact information for the appropriate officials in Missouri:

Email address: Brandon.middleton@mshp.dps.mo.gov

Missouri Information Analysis Center
Division of Drugs & Crime Control
P. O. Box 568
Jefferson City, MO 65102-0568
Phone: 573-751-6422
Toll Free: 866-362-6422
Fax: 573-751-9950

And while you are at it, you should also contact the state police agency as
well as the governor’s office in your state, especially if your state has a
“Fusion Center” (see web site above). Mark it down: if you have ever
publicly opposed any of the above-mentioned issues or organizations, or have
ever publicly supported an independent Presidential candidate, YOU ARE BEING
PROFILED RIGHT NOW!

We await the State of Missouri’s response. In the meantime, what are you
going to do?

P.S. Even as this column is being distributed, we have just received a reply
from the Director of the Missouri Department of Public Safety, John Britt. I
will analyze and respond to this statement in my next column.
