FBI quietly drops 'law enforcement' as its primary mission
Thomas Lifson

Without any fanfare, "law enforcement" has been dropped from its status as the FBI's primary mission. John Hudson reports on The Cable blog of Foreign Policy:

Quote
The FBI's creeping advance into the world of counterterrorism is nothing new. But quietly and without notice, the agency has finally decided to make it official in one of its organizational fact sheets. Instead of declaring "law enforcement" as its "primary function," as it has for years, the FBI fact sheet now lists "national security" as its chief mission.



As Hudson notes, federal agencies realize that citing "national security" seems to open the funding spigot. But don't we already have a Department of Homeland Security? The idea that the federal government is funding two rival organizations with the same mission bespeaks bureaucratic bloat, especially given the notorious tendency to keep information within the same agency rather than share it with an agency that might be a rival for funding in the future.

The Department of Homeland Security is now acting as a federal police force to monitor the actions of subversives such as Constitutionalists, Pro-lifers and Tea Party people.

Everything in the Obama administration is upside down.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

If national security now is the FBI's primary function, I wonder if they consider law enforcement to be among any of their other less important functions?  Will they even bother with it?
I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.

I tell you, mountaineer..........DHS is now a federal police force.  At a Tea Party protest about the IRS, there was a DHS vehicle there the entire time with POLICE written on the side of it and DHS in much smaller letters underneath.

The DHS is there for law enforcement for dangerous people such as the Tea Party.

I thought the primary mission of all departments of government since Hussein is always "Muslim Outreach".

The fact that they didn't list it surprised me.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

You're right. Even NASA.  **nononono*

Again, the Constitution has been skirted by a few choice words since a federal police force, per se, is not Constitutional. :smokin:

Malcolm X said: "The worst enemy that the Negro have is this white man that runs around here drooling at the mouth professing to love Negros and calling himself a liberal, and it is following these white liberals that has perpetuated problems that Negros have. If the Negro wasn't taken, tricked or deceived by the white liberal, then Negros would get together and solve our own problems

Exactly.  Even the wording on their vehicles defies the Constitution.

But they don't care because all they have to do is label anyone who brings it up as "extremist" and the brain-dead are pacified.
