WSJ: Why does the IRS need guns?
Read their training requirements, it is not about collecting past due taxes, this is combat training, aimed at citizens.
Special agents at the IRS equipped with AR-15 military-style rifles? Health and Human Services "Special Office of Inspector General Agents" being trained by the Army’s Special Forces contractors? The Department of Veterans Affairs arming 3,700 employees?
The number of non-Defense Department federal officers authorized to make arrests and carry firearms (200,000) now exceeds the number of U.S. Marines (182,000).
In its escalating arms and ammo stockpiling, this federal arms race is unlike anything in history. Over the last 20 years, the number of these federal officers with arrest-and-firearm authority has nearly tripled to over 200,000 today, from 74,500 in 1996.
What exactly is the Obama administration up to?
On Friday, June 17, our organization, American Transparency, is releasing its OpenTheBooks.com oversight report on the militarization of America. The report catalogs federal purchases of guns, ammunition and military-style equipment by seemingly bureaucratic federal agencies.
During a nine-year period through 2014, we found, 67 agencies unaffiliated with the Department of Defense spent $1.48 billion on guns and ammo. Of that total, $335.1 million was spent by agencies traditionally viewed as regulatory or administrative, such as the Smithsonian Institution and the U.S. Mint.GO READ THE WHOLE THING.

UniversityChronicle May 19,2016: First-Ever Global Summit Of Cities Reinforces Powerful Message For Countering Extremism at the Local Level
More than 200 representatives from 50 global cities met in Antalya, Turkey last week for the premiere Strong Cities Network Global Summit to explore the role of municipalities in countering violent extremism. The Strong Cities Network (SCN), run by the London-based Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD), brought together key stakeholders for two days of training and capacity-building sessions, fostering collaboration and sharing valuable lessons and practice from around the world.
Cities and local authorities around the world need to be at the forefront of preventative and safeguarding measures to counter violent extremism in all its forms. Now more than ever, mayors, governors, frontline practitioners and local communities must play a key role in building social cohesion and resilience, promoting inclusion, and mitigating vulnerability to extremism and radicalisation. This is the rationale behind the unprecedented efforts of the SCN – with a goal of connecting local partners on a global scale.

Why is the FBI suddenly bringing up Terry Nichols and OKC as examples of the sovereign citizen movement? It goes along with their right wing extremist as the biggest terror threat narrative but it’s odd. I also hate the way they called the beards Duck Dynasty beards. I’ve never heard them refer to a Muslim’s beard as an Osama Bin Laden beard.
