Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – back on your heads edition

OK folks – coffee break’s over!

This is going to be a long one, so break out your most comfortable iso suit, and we’ll get started!

We’re starting with a new feature, called “Guess the thread subject”!

I’ve seen this kind of political operation before, both in events elsewhere in the past and in histories of similar operations. Here’s what’s being done.
Certain scared, extremely influential political constituents, their pocket politicians and sponsored media folks are pushing the conspiracy theory. They’re hoping that some of the least intelligent individuals with rifles will cause incidents, and you know why.

Louie Gohmert Gets Why Some Texans Are Worried About a Military Takeover

National Journal ^ | May 5, 2015 | Matt Berman Posted on 5‎/‎5‎/‎2015‎ ‎8‎:‎26‎:‎24‎ ‎PM by Kaslin

The Texas congressman is joining others in his state calling for the Pentagon to alter the Jade Helm 15 military exercises.

May 5, 2015 U.S. Special Operations Command is preparing to launch a five-month, multi-state exercise across private and public land to prepare Army special forces for threats anywhere in the world. Or at least that’s what the Pentagon would want you to believe. Officials and citizens in Texas, one of the states involved, see something potentially more nefarious in the exercise, dubbed Jade Helm 15. And now Rep. Louie Gohmert is joining them.

“Over the past few weeks, my office has been inundated with calls referring to the Jade Helm 15 military exercise scheduled to take place between July 15 and September 15, 2015,” Gohmert said in a Tuesday statement. “This military practice has some concerned that the U.S. Army is preparing for modern-day martial law. Certainly, I can understand these concerns.”

“When leaders within the current administration believe that major threats to the country include those who support the Constitution, are military veterans, or even ‘cling to guns or religion,’ patriotic Americans have reason to be concerned,” Gohmert wrote.

It’s amazing how the concept of “culpability for trying to stir up the shitpot and incite violence” can be applied to one situation, but not the other, innit?

Here’s the above post, unedited this time:

Certain scared, extremely influential political constituents, their pocket politicians and sponsored media folks are pushing the conspiracy theory. They’re hoping that some of the least intelligent individuals with rifles will cause incidents, and you know why. Some of the more moronic dupes or trolls have already threatened to open fire on the soldiers (who won’t even have live ammunition).
Remember that there are very influential constituents in both political parties who want to disarm all but their own kind. They want to disarm the middle class. It’s not only Democrats. And don’t assume that you are one of those very influential constituents or very special to them.
Many who participate on all kinds of discussion boards (including this one) while wanting laws against middle class Americans owning rifles are adding lies to the stories (dishonest claims that soldiers are trespassing on private, residential properties, using artillery simulators next to private homes, etc.). The claims were made long before the exercise started.
I participated in an exercise like that during the years of the George H. W. Bush Administration. We were not practicing to take over the world. We were practicing to protect friendly locals and their infrastructure, wherever those friendly locals may be in the future. The locals enjoyed seeing us.
The problem now is that many of the locals here and there are not so friendly. Neighborhood guy is a commando in his own mind, and he’s looking for trouble.

You believe Jade Helm is the Obama military training for confrontations with blacks in Baltimore? Obama is a Marxist, race riots don’t bother him. The acronym for “Helm” means:

HELM = Homeland Eradication of Local Militants

Now just who are these “local militants” that the Obama administration are so concerned with?

This leads to a completely different thread, on a FR meta subject that slipped completely below my radar:
Should FR continue to blacklist Infowars articles? [JimRob reply at 47]

Posted on 7‎/‎1‎/‎2013‎ ‎1‎:‎31‎:‎10‎ ‎PM by grumpygreshSources such as NYT, Wapo, Politico are permitted on FR and those organizations are not exactly unbiased or accurate. Generally speaking, I think Infowars presents a libertarian and constitutionalist perspective and has cleaned up its act over the last couple years.

The out of the box approach is more of what we seem to need. Jones, like Beck, has been FOR YEARS saying that a NWO, or elitist statist cabal, is out to get our individual liberties view freedom. I see nothing to invalidate THAT view, just plenty of proof from everywhere. If that makes me anathema, then ban me too!

Next up – motor voter cloture!

Oregon will now register you to vote whether you want to or not, you peasant
Hotair ^ | 03/17/2015 | Jazz Shaw

Posted on ‎3‎/‎17‎/‎2015‎ ‎11‎:‎30‎:‎56‎ ‎AM by SeekAndFind

So I’m guessing this was supposed to be good news, right? In Oregon, you will now be registered to vote pretty much automatically whenever you have any interaction with the DMV. That’s the new initiative being signed into law by newly inducted Governor Kate Brown (the nation’s first openly bisexual Governor!) and considered to be her first signature piece of legislation.

Sweeping first-in-the nation legislation making voter registration automatic in Oregon was signed into law on Monday by Governor Kate Brown, potentially adding 300,000 new voters to state rolls.

The so-called Motor Voter legislation will use state Department of Motor Vehicles data to automatically register eligible voters whose information is contained in the DMV system, with a 21-day opt-out period for those who wish to be taken off the registry.

Supporters say the legislation’s goal is to keep young voters, students and working families who move often from losing their right to vote. Republican lawmakers, who unanimously voted against the bill, complain it puts Oregonians’ privacy at risk.

There are all sorts of things not to like here, many of which have been pointed out by Republican legislators in Oregon who universally refused to support the bill. The original “Motor Voter” requirements implemented at the federal level in the early nineties, while containing some significant flaws, at least had the virtue of an ostensibly noble goal. It gave people the option (which is the key word here) to take care of registering to vote at the same time that they were taking care of some other business with the state rather than going to a different location for an entirely separate process.

The Oregon legislation goes much further. Rather than an option to register, you supposedly will have an option to “opt out” of registering. That’s assuming a small postcard arrives successfully in your mail box, you notice it, remember to fill it out, send it in and somebody actually processes the request correctly. And let’s face it… the people being targeted here are probably at just about the lowest end of the election knowledge scale if they didn’t even realize you had to register in order to vote. It’s not hard to imagine some of them assuming that the postcard is some sort of spam and just tossing it in the circular file.

“But,” some of you may wonder, “what’s the big deal about being registered if you didn’t intend to? It’s not like they’re making you vote.”

Good question. Not everyone is “on the grid” in terms of public data searches, sometimes for very good reasons. As just one example, victims of domestic abuse often wish to hide their current location from their abusers, but a simple desire for privacy is justification enough. Once you’ve been automatically registered to vote, you are in a database, and it’s often not the most secure thing in the world. For example, here in New York, there is a website you can visit and if you know somebody’s first name, last name and date of birth you can click one button and have their address. Pretty convenient for the stalker inclined web browser, no?

There are also considerations about voter fraud with the Oregon scheme. They claim that the database of drivers which is being tapped for the registration “includes information on whether a person is a citizen.” I’m sure that makes everyone feel better. Given how fired up Oregon has been to issue drivers licenses to illegal immigrants, there’s just all sorts of opportunities for things to go wrong.

What problem were they trying to solve here, anyway? I don’t believe there should be barriers for anyone to vote if they are legally entitled to do so and wish to. But shouldn’t there be some effort involved to demonstrate that you’re actually aware of the process and have an interest in taking part? Was the existing system holding so many people back from registering that this was required?

Automatically registered if you get an ID (drivers license), but no id required to vote.

If you don’t vote someone will vote for you.

    Those freepers in TX better get prepared to fight off the Jade Helm Reconquista.

    First, dress up in cammos; second, arm up with heavy weaponry; third, head out into the backcountry. Next, how can they know the enemy? Well, they’ll be sneaking around the backcountry, heavily armed and wearing cammos.
