TEA Party's Being Watched

FBI spied on TEA Party Americans

Exclusive to the Northeast Intelligence Network & Canada Free Press

Douglas J. Hagmann, Director & Judi McLeod, Founding Editor, Canada Free Press

19 April 2009: Even as average Americans were planning to get out in towns and cities to demonstrate against Big Government and Big Taxes, Federal Bureau of Intelligence Investigation (FBI) surveillance was being unleashed upon them. In fact, unsuspecting Tax Day TEA Party participants were being closely watched during the demonstration planning stages in a covert operation that began on or about March 23, 2009.

If you one of the estimated 750,000 Americans who attended one of about 600 TEA parties last week, you might have seen media cameras covering the event. Media cameras, however, were not the only cameras taking video at these events, something that has at least one current FBI agent concerned over the future of America. According to this agent - the same agent who provided the Northeast Intelligence Network (NEIN) exclusively the unreleased photographs of the 11 missing Egyptian students who were the subject of a FBI BOLO in August 2006–placed his concerns for true patriots of the U.S. over his own career when he confided that covert surveillance was “planned and performed” at each of the TEA parties that took place last Tuesday.

“Listen to what I am saying,” stated the source during an interview with Doug Hagmann, founder (NEIN). “The Department of Homeland Security Intelligence Assessment that is receiving so much attention is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, and the true patriotic citizens of this country are on the Titanic. This is what bothers me. But is goes far beyond that assessment. There have been very significant changes made over the last few years that redirect the focus and assets of the intelligence community internally. These changes have greatly accelerated under this administration, and the threats have been redefined to include those who used to be patriots. It’s not only chilling but absolutely insulting to God-fearing Americans.”

According to this unimpeachable source, a single-page confidential directive issued by the FBI headquarters in Washington, DC (FBIHQ) was sent to each of the 56 field offices located across the United States on or about March 23, 2009, instructing the Special Agents in Charge (SACs) of those offices to verify the date, time and location of each TEA Party within their region and supply that information to FBI headquarters in Washington. The source stated this correspondence termed the TEA parties “political demonstrations,” and added that the dissemination of the directive was very tightly controlled. “Not all agents were privy to this correspondence,” stated the source, who compared the dissemination to an older “Do Not File” classification.

In addition to obtaining or confirming the location and time of each “demonstration,” each field office was instructed to obtain or confirm the identity of the individual(s) involved in the actual planning and coordination of the event in each specific region, and include the local or regional Internet web site address, if any. The information collected by region was then reportedly sent to FBI Headquarters.

The source alleges that a second directive was issued on or about April 6, 2009 that reportedly instructed each SAC to coordinate and conduct, either at the field office level and/or with the appropriate resident agency, covert video surveillance and data collection of the participants of the TEA parties. Surveillance was to be performed from “discreet fixed or mobile positions” and was to be performed “independently and outside of the purview of local law enforcement.”

Although the level of detail collected from each operation is unclear, the information was reportedly submitted to Washington, where, “at the level of the National Security Branch (NSB), this information was to “include the office of the Directorate of Intelligence (DI), and integrated with a restricted access database, one that reportedly is accessible to only two agencies” [of the 14 agencies that comprise the U.S. intelligence community, according to the source.

“The implications to the citizens of the U.S. are ominous. It seems that there is a hostile political agenda coming from Washington that characterizes the supporters of our constitutional freedoms as threats to our domestic security, which is totally absurd. The redirection, the refocusing of domestic threats from al Qaeda cells to ‘flag waving right-wingers’ is something that has gone from a murmur a few years ago to a roar today.”

Training government-issued cameras on ordinary citizens, many of whom brought their children to an estimated 600 Tax Day TEA Parties is a page torn out of George Orwell’s 1984 and makes the term “God Bless America” more meaningful than ever.

Wild Thing's comment.........

In all the support the troops rallies I have participated in there have always been police there and possibly FBI as well. I always figured it was due to the Code Pinko's that would be there opposing us. The police mostly would stay with us on our side of the street or mingle with us and stare down the lefties to be behave or else.

In the political rallies that I have been a part of ...." holding signs " Soreloserman", when Bush ran against Gore and when Kerry ran against Bush those were huge rallies. Nicholals even lost his voice for a few days from yelling .." Freedom" as we drove along the bike and car route in line with everyone.

Everytime there are demonstrations/rallies, the FBI has surveillance no matter which side is rallying. This goes back years to the Vietnam War protests that we would see on TV or in the papers.

The Tea Parties that just went on had 1 million plus Americans in over 850 cities taking part.

I never minded the police or the FBI being there before, not until this administration. That is why when I first saw this article I said WOW, because we live in a different time now with a wanna be god dictator communist unconstitutional president. Not even during the Clinton years it never crossed my mind that this could be a bad thing or a problem. The reason has been because our side never caused trouble, never did damage to property etc. like the left does at their rallies.

Now it is a little different because of the DHS and Obama and not only that but also the way Obama ran his campaign and his thugs turning in people that had stickers on their cars they did not approve of etc.

They want to scare off people I think and it won't work. It is concerning I am not going to make it a small thing, but we are not the bad guys even if they think so.

"In the beginning of a change, the Patriot is a scarce man and brave, hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a Patriot." Mark Twain

I will always stick with the ‘Defenders of Freedom’ (aka Vets) - ‘Right Wing Extremists’, who think the Constitution should be upheld.

Tea Party participants: 1.1 ~ 1.5 million
Tea Parties in over 850 cities across America
Tea Party arrests for unruly behaviour: 0
One unqualified president deeply ticked off he could not con the other half of America.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

I worry about the abuse and misuse of law enforcement, mostly Federal. Waco and Ruby Ridge are always in the back of my mind.

At some time very strict gun laws are going to be proposed and maybe enacted. Then normal law abiding citizens are going to refuse to obey those laws. How many citizens I don't know, but likely millions. What will law enforcement do then? Will the government have to build special camps to keep all these citizens in? Will there be carnage as citizens fight for their rights? Are we being monitored right now on this web site because we are conservative and Second Amendment supporters?

I know a number of local LEOs(law enforcement officers). They are gun enthusiasts and Constitutional rights supporters. I am sure that if strict gun laws are passed these local officers are going to be in a quandry. They themselves want to keep their private gun collections and don't want to federally register them or give them up.

Here in Texas even our governor is so worried about Federal intrusion into state's rights that he has mentioned the "S" word, secede. That idea has a lot of support. I bet there is a lot of FBI surveilance of our governor.

See? We know how to behave in public! Funny how when the other side protests, it's all okay, but now that we're doing it, the other side is mad as heck about it. I guess they don't like the shoe being on the other foot or having the tables turned on them do they? But the thing they did not pay attention to was that the Tea Parties were bipartisan-anyone who was fed up could go, not just us conservatives.

Sound familiar? Hitler's SS, Stalin's spies, Obama's "Hiller Youth", brown shirts to spy and out any non-Communists. Some of us remember the abuses of J. Edgar Hoover during the Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Nixon era's. The FBI was used to spy and gather information on everyone, some of that information was used to persecute and prosecute citizens, some was released to the press to ruin careers of those they didn't like or felt threatened by. Take heed, Obama has all Communists in his cabinet and he has demonstrated the will to destroy anyone who threatens his agenda. Clinton did it!!!

Tom, I agree, that is very conserning. I am
used to how it has been in the past, they
were always on our side. But now they are
getting their orders from a communist in
the Oval office.

Thanks for sharing that about Texas.
