(FEDERALJACK)   The Obama administration has expanded the national terrorist watchlist system by approving broad guidelines over who can be targeted. A leaked copy of the secret government guidebook reveals that to be a deemed a “terrorist” target, “irrefutable evidence or concrete facts are not necessary.” Both “known” and “suspected” suspects are tracked, and terrorism is so broadly defined that it includes people accused of damaging property belonging to the government or financial institutions. Other factors that can justify inclusion on the watchlist include postings on social media or having a relative already deemed a terrorist. Democracy Now interviews investigative reporters Jeremy Scahill and Ryan Devereaux of The Intercept. Last week they published the secret U.S. document along with their new article, “The Secret Government Rulebook For Labeling You a Terrorist.”

  • There’s the stench of a foul corpse permeating the streets of our dwindling Republic. Behold! It is the free press. Freedom of the press is now dead. The U.S. Democratic Republic is now a political mutation called fascism. When I was a kid in school, my professors would talk about how Franco of Spain or Pinochet of Chile would use their secret intelligence forces to keep watch on journalists who felt it their ethical duty to write the truth about what heinous crimes were being committed on their follow citizens by these puppet and fascist regimes. Now as a mature adult, I live in a country that is now ran by a parallel military-intelligence apparatua which persecutes free speech and freedom of the press, a virtue that our country was founded on. I must admit, I live with a degree of paranoia. I know my twitter account is monitored and I wonder am I on the list, I wonder will the next time I apply for a job will I be turned down because of a comment I left on a website like Federal Jack, and I wonder have I been placed on a terrorist watchlist simply because I do not agree with the psychotic policies of our current dictatorship. Thanks for posting this video, Popeye. At least, while you can.
