The US government’s war on political dissent is being guided by private left-wing and Zionist organizations, National Justice can report.

An internal document regarding the Pentagon’s “Countering Extremism Working Group” (CEWG) from last April names the individuals and groups that are slated for membership in a subcommittee that specializes in setting targets for the Defense Department, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice’s war on conservative and nationalist leaning Americans.

Government officials tend to keep details of their collaboration with “private partners” secret out of fear of the public knowing the prejudices and biases informing policy.

Some names that stand out are Mark Pitcavage of the Anti-Defamation League, former Southern Poverty Law Center agent Heidi Beirich, Lecia Brooks and Susan Corke, also of the SPLC, and various figures representing the American Civil Liberties Union and the FBI Agents Association.

These lobbyists and political activists are being hired by the government as “partners” on “counter extremism and counter terrorism to better understand the scope of the problem.”

In other words, they will have a say in which Americans have rights and which Americans are “domestic extremists” subject to the full force of the US intelligence apparatus.

The definition of “extremism” used by the ADL and the SPLC would be considered extreme in and of themselves by most Americans.

For example, the ADL considers Fox News’ Tucker Carlson to be a domestic extremist. Recently the same group declared calling attention to Israel’s human rights abuses is also “extremism.” By deferring to the ADL’s guidance on these matters, the US government is criminalizing the opinions of millions of Americans.

Other figures such as Leicia Brooks and Heidi Beirich are alleged to be involved in extremism and criminal activity themselves. Early last year, Lecia Brooks helped lead an illegal armed communist march through the streets of a small town in Stone Mountain, Georgia.

As for Beirich, she is accused in federal court of paying a man to rob a computer and then using the stolen contents to defame a man on the SPLC’s website.

The SPLC currently employs multiple open supporters of Antifa, including Michael Edison Hayden, who has previously threatened people with sending his Antifa contacts to people’s houses. The SPLC’s “hate map” is not only a fraud, it is notoriously hyper-partisan.

The ACLU’s inclusion in the CEWG subcommittee appears to be a hedge against complaints that the FBI and DHS targets Muslims. While American intelligence agencies have indeed violated the rights of Muslims, the ACLU has shown in recent years that it is not interested in defending the civil liberties of those dubbed “white nationalists” or right-leaning individuals in general.

Josh Zive, head of the FBI Agents Association, is also part of the group. The off-the-rails FBI has been demanding Congress pass a “domestic terrorism law” so that they can be free to prosecute Americans for their political beliefs even when they aren’t committing any real crimes. Looking at the zeal that FBI agents have pursued Trump supporters who trespassed at the Capitol compared to the deadly anarchist violence that terrorized multiple cities last year offers a hint as to who they want to shut down.

Nobody has been killed by so-called “Racially Motivated Violent Extremists” in 2020 or 2021, the main target of the supposed “domestic terrorism” crackdown. This has not stopped the Department of Homeland Security from crying wolf about supposed “white supremacists” waiting to strike as COVID restrictions are eased.

According to the DHS’ terrorism advisory this week, Russia, China and Iran are responsible for the rash of black attacks on people of Asian descent, as well as complaints that the DHS cannot point to any specific imminent “white supremacist” threat because the mysterious and unknown actors are using encrypted apps to plot their attacks. This nonsense amounts to political theater, showing a fundamental lack of seriousness coming from Washington.

While the FBI, DHS and Defense Department have discredited themselves domestically and globally, their desperation should not be ignored. If the ADL and SPLC get to decide what constitutes “domestic extremism,” the new post-legal era of rampant government abuse is only getting started.

    Not a surprise here that the hate whitey meme and government crackdown on white nationalists is driven by Jews. White nationalists are a threat to Jewish supremacists and they will use any power in the government to go after them. Sad though that the government goes along with the charade.

    Excellent work as usual from Mr. Striker.

    Not sure why he does not get more attention for his articles that are uniformly enlightening.

  2. Request for clarification:

    An internal document regarding the Pentagon’s “Countering Extremism Working Group” (CEWG) from last April […]

    2020? Or 2021?

  3. This is a huge gift to the ADL, the ACLU and the SPLC, to prop up their credibility.

    As Non Governmental Organizations, the only ties they have to government are those granted to them. This special relationship confers the veneer of legitimacy to their grift.

    When OathKeepers began as a competing NGO from the Constitutional right, the progressives reacted in horror. The institutions of police and military are the last bastions of conservatism. The progressive establishment wants to haul both institutions into its iron grip, purging constitutionalists and conservatives and driving a wedge between them and government.

    It is no surprise to see OathKeepers demonized and Trump supporters getting no-knock raids by FBI SWAT teams, while the SPLC and ADL are fêted as “partners”. This is total ideological culture war.

    “Federal Government’s “Domestic Extremism” Committee Is Being Run By the ADL and SPLC, Leaked Documents Show”

    Get a grip. WTF did you expect?

    Some Reminders For Ya’ll:

    “Because they are all ultimately funded via both direct and indirect theft [taxes], and counterfeiting [central bank monopolies], all governments are essentially, at their very cores, 100% corrupt criminal scams which cannot be “reformed”or “improved”,simply because of their innate criminal nature.” onebornfree

    “There has been no greater threat to life, liberty, and property throughout the ages than government. Even the most violent and brutal private individuals have been able to inflict only a mere fraction of the harm and destruction that have been caused by the use of power by political authorities.” Richard Ebeling

    “Taking the State wherever found, striking into its history at any point, one sees no way to differentiate the activities of its founders, administrators and beneficiaries from those of a professional-criminal class.” Albert J. Nock

    Wake up! It ain’t too late!

    Regards, onebornfree

    Thank you Mr. Striker. And in other breaking news, water is reported to be wet. It’s a sign of the times that they no longer feel the need to even hide what they are doing because they believe there is nothing that can stop them.

    Already the new unwritten Democrap Constitution says the Democrat’s political police can summarily execute on site unarmed political protesters who are not state approved.

  8. Thomasina says:

    What’s the best way to go after your adversaries and silence them? Lie, manufacture a threat, invent an enemy out of whole cloth. Smear their reputation, shame and guilt them. Kind of like accusing a guy who has turned down your advances of touching you in an inappropriate way or, worse, raping you, or spreading a rumor that the minister is a pedophile. They go right for the jugular. They don’t need evidence. How do you disprove something that didn’t happen? You are immediately put on the defensive, not a place you want to be.

    It’s a ballsy move, but we’ve seen a lot of this the past few years with Russiagate, the stolen election, Covid lockdowns. The lies just keep getting bigger and bigger.

    And they’ve used Antifa and BLM as weapons to scare the public, make the public believe there’s more of them than there actually are. The media have been on board too, citing polls that speak of huge numbers of people afraid of “white terrorists”. I don’t believe these polls. I doubt there are that many of them. They wouldn’t have surrounded the Capitol in fencing if the majority of people were on their side.

    None of these committee people actually believe this stuff, and their committee wouldn’t have gotten to first base if both the Democrat AND Republican politicians didn’t want them there. The Uniparty has an agenda and they are scared stiff that the plans of their corporate masters will be thwarted by the patriotic citizenry.

    This is a war between the 1% globalists and the nationalists. And they own the media.

    Time to get hard-skinned. When they accuse you of something ridiculous, just laugh and tell them that they are entitled to their ill-informed opinion. Start watching them, gathering information on them. Turn the tables and make THEM go on the defensive.

    One good thing, though. It looks like there will be lots of good jobs once the FBI, DHS, Defense Department and DOJ are cleared out. Maybe Heidi and Lecia can be hired to clean the toilets.

  9. Why is the Department of Defense doing this? Doesn’t this violate the Posse Comitatus Act?

    Careful — asking questions like that may violate the superseding PATRIOT Act.

  11. anon[313] • Disclaimer says:

    ADL and SPLC are now training their Jews to parrot the words “threatened” or “threatening.” This is the new Jew smear for anti-semitic. With typically Jewish low cunning, the Zionazi NGOs have chosen a word that can be a past or present tense verb, or an adjective for a subjective emotional state. This ambiguity allows SPLC fellow travelers to run to the police, creating reports that the DHS Jew Stasi uses to justify surveillance and frivolous prosecution under color of law.

  12. Richard B says:

    The least surprising thing I’ve heard so far this year.

    And, though one has to be grateful that at least someone is reporting this, the question still stands: What is anyone going to do about? Can anyone do anything about it?

    The fact is, the country’s suffering from some kind of socio-moral infection that’s so bad it’s terminal, or might as well be. If that is indeed the case, and it certainly looks like it there are only really two alternatives to those who don’t approve:

    1. remove the tumor 2. get as far away from it all as possible, lay low, and built healthy and lasting relations with those close to you, family, friends, etc.

    Since the first option would requires resources, organization, motivation and commitment that I don’t see anywhere, at all, it looks like the second option is the way to go.

    The only problem there is, that most people want to be left alone, these people won’t leave you alone.

    In the words of Shakespeare, The readiness is all.

    But of course, they want to make certain odious speech actually criminal as it is in Europe

  14. @Greta Handel

    Like the legislators who approved the Act, I have not read the PATRIOT Act.

  15. Orwell told us that the biggest espousers of tolerance and anti-hate would be the most intolerant and hate promoting entities themselves (ie. ADL , SPLC, NAACP)
