It looks like we’ve rewound back to 2009.

Anti-government extremists opposed to taxes and regulations pose a growing threat to local law enforcement officers in the United States, the FBI warned on Monday.

These extremists, sometimes known as “sovereign citizens,” believe they can live outside any type of government authority, FBI agents said at a news conference.

These extremists, sometimes known as “sovereign citizens,” believe they can live outside any type of government authority, FBI agents said at a news conference.

The story cites all of two cases in the entire United States, then segues to this.

FBI agents said they do not have a tally of people who consider themselves “sovereign citizens.”

If the FBI takes the trouble to hold a press conference alerting us to the growing threat of “sovereign citizens,” shouldn’t they have some idea of how many of these folks there are and what they’re up to? One of the FBI’s consultants claims there are 100,000 of them — but the consultant makes his money by amping up the threat.

Back in 2009, Obama’s DHS warned the world of the “growing threat” of “right wing extremists” and veterans returning from the war.

Meanwhile, the US border with Mexico is an actual war zone, as many as 35,000 dead including some Americans and the mayhem increasingly spilling across the border, and what’s the Obama administration doing about that? Trying to run from the fact that it allowed thousands of guns to walk across the border and into the hands of Mexico’s hyperviolent drug cartels.
