We’re running out of time for making visits to our elected officials in August – when Congress Members are in their home state – but you can also plan to meet your officials in Washington, DC or call them by phone. Here is Defending Dissent’s activism plan…
Tun up the heat on Congress!
Our campaign to Investigate the FBI is gaining steam– but we need your help to make Congress feel the heat this summer.
Members of Congress will be in their home districts in August, so it’s a great opportunity to meet with them face to face to demand an end to FBI political spying and a full investigation into FBI abuses of its counterterrorism authorities.
Thank you, New York Times, for this op-ed this past week…
Who will watch the watch lists?
I found this report recently – it’s from 2014. It discusses the role the FBI and local law enforcement have played in terrorist-related crimes.
I have been under some type of surveillance by the police – I call them the FAUX-lice because ***real cops*** don’t behave this way.
Here’s a quote, and the source is below.
Indeed, in some cases the Federal Bureau of Investigation may have created terrorists out of law-abiding individuals by conducting sting operations that facilitated or invented the target’s willingness to act. According to multiple studies, nearly 50 percent of the more than 500 federal counterterrorism convictions resulted from informant-based cases; almost 30 percent of those cases were sting operations in which the informant played an active role in the underlying plot. In the case of the “Newburgh Four,” for example, a judge said the government “came up with the crime, provided the means, and removed all relevant obstacles,” and had, in the process, made a terrorist out of a man “whose buffoonery is positively Shakespearean in scope.”
