History Markers : Terror From the Right: 1995 - 2014 | splc.org

Below is a concise summary of stories of plots, conspiracies and racist rampages, 1995 to 2014. Target? Democratic America. The number in parentheses is the count of how many events actually occurred.


First event was July 28, 1995: Anti-government extremist Charles Ray Polk indicted by federal grand jury for plotting to blow up the Internal Revenue Service building in Austin, Texas.


Last event dated June 8, 2014: Jerad Miller, 31, and his wife, Amanda, 22, shoot two police officers. The Millers perceived law enforcement as "oppressors" and reportedly told neighbors about their plans.

* * NOTE: SPLC has updated this list AFTER 2014.  Events below ones I think should be mentioned.  

2015 San Bernadino, California Attack.

2017 Mass Shooting at a country-music show at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas 

Sadly, there continue to be additions to the list.  No point splitting hairs over what constitutes a "terrorist act".

Some plots are aimed at the government.  
Some people just aim at anything! Reason unknown.  (O.o)

Suspected Terrorists, Taking Liberties, and the “Present Distress” in America

These words were shared publicly by me, Jan 20, 2012 via my Google Plus profile. Deleted the share and am republishing it via my blog because we just went through the 2016 election and now have a new President Elect. This is not about Trump. It's about Obama (who will soon be history) and about a book. Publishing the content here as it may be relevant to the “present distress” in America.

[Yes I know I'm quoting scripture but my statement is political. Read the entire post and you will clearly understand the application. I ain't preaching. I'M SCREAMING!!]




Acts 16: 37-38  ~ But Paul said unto them, They have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans, and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out privily?nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out. And the serjeants told these words unto the magistrates: and they feared, when they heard that they were Romans. …

Acts 25: 11-12  ~ For if I be an offender, or have committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die: but if there be none of these things whereof these accuse me, no man may deliver me unto them. I appeal unto Caesar. Then Festus, when he had conferred with the council,answered, Hast thou appealed unto Caesar? unto Caesar shalt thou go.



* I’m not really a devoted fan of cable TV. But the remote control does make it very easy for me to fall asleep. The news channels in particular are excellent for insomnia. So I was flipping the channels and came across a program called The Young Turks. I paused for a few minutes to listen to the discussion with the ACLU representative who also wrote a book called Taking Liberties. Evidently Obama signed a bill that obliterates the liberty of every American citizen – those in the USA and those who are abroad. (That’s what I heard!)



* yadda yadda ... blah blah ... Something or other about citizens suspected as terrorists being arrested and detained indefinitely. Of course, to his credit, the current POTUS said he would never do that. (Uh huh. Well that’s comforting.)

* So here’s the situation: Whether or not the current President chooses to enforce NDAA (??? not sure about the alphabets), it can be enforced.


* UM … THAT’S CRAP!!!


* If you agree or disagree, you better take the liberty to say so. Because IF ENFORCED and you get arrested and detained indefinitely as a suspected terrorist, unlike the Apostle Paul, you probably won’t be able to appeal to anybody cause WON’T NOBODY KNOW WHERE YOU AT!!


For the record: I’m not a card-carrying member of the ACLU. That’s Bruce Willis.  (joking)


{The link is to the book Taking Liberties. In the interest of disclosure, I’m an Amazon Associate, so if you purchase the book via this link I earn income. But whether you buy the book or not, the NDAA IS STILL CRAP!!!}

#ScotlandDecides - The Vote is 'NO'

Scotland voted and decided against separating from the United Kingdom. I'm so excited, I'm beside myself. This isn't even my country but I feel like celebrating a victory.  It's a great day for Democracy!  Power to the People! ALE!  :)

1999 is Past. 2013 is Gone. But 3012 is Still a Long Way Off! Right?

1999 is past. 2013 is gone.  2016 and the following 8 years will come and go in a flash!  But 3012 is still a long way off! Right?

U.S. Presidential flag, 1960-present (not usua... 
U.S. Presidential flag, 1960-present (not usually called a "standard" 
in official U.S. government terminology). It is defined in 
Executive Order 10860. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Visualize this. You, a typical AAC (average American citizen), a Student at an American institution of higher learning in the YEAR (??) - timeline somewhere between 2000 and 2012 - have been chosen to spend 15 minutes with the President of the United States (thee most powerful Leader of the free world [or at least he or she would like think so]). It is the 21st century. 1999 came and went. The artist formerly known as Prince who is now known as Prince again laments, but what can he do? 

The Party is over. No partying for you either! You have been given a mission. Your mission ~ should you decide to accept ~ is to identify the two most important issues facing your generation. What two things would you choose to discuss and why? No. This is not a trick question. No. I don't think this question has ever been put quite this way for a Miss America or Miss Universe contestant. Furthermore, your choices have been narrowed down considerably.

- A) War and Peace 
- B) The Budget and Taxes 
- C) Racism and Crime 
- D) Health and Education  
- E) Making the World Safe for Democracy and Nothing Else Matters.

Say what? You picked ________________. Well alrightee then!

Do not Believe Justin Bieber. You do not have until 3012, you will need more than a Beauty And A Beat; and besides that, Mr. Bieber is from Canada.. :) So let's go! You got 15 minutes. The clock is ticking! * * *
