According to this story the FBI has just released its domestic threat assessment report for the year 2013, and it states that the domestic threat level for last year was moderate and they expect that to remain the case for the rest of 2014.
The report then goes on to list some of the domestic threats, here are some of them:
They include anti-government militia groups and white supremacy extremists, along with “sovereign citizen” nationalists, and anarchists. Other domestic threat groups outlined by the FBI assessment include violent animal rights and environmentalist extremists, black separatists, anti- and pro-abortion activists, and Puerto Rican nationalists.
On black separatists, the report warned that “high-profile racially charged crimes or events” could lead to an expansion of black separatist groups. The report identified three such groups as the New Black Panther Party, the Israelite Church of God in Jesus Christ, and the Black Hebrew Israelite group as extremists under FBI scrutiny.
As you can see, the report names groups on both extreme sides of the political spectrum–from white supremacists to black separatists–but did you notice which group was missing from this report?
Dianne Feinstein has been fairly critical of Barack Obama as of late–first admitting there was no credible threat to Bowe Bergdhal’s life and more recently lamenting his lack of leadership on foreign affairs–and now she is at it again.
Earlier today on ‘Meet the Press’ Dainne Feinstein was asked about Barack Obama’s statement earlier in the week about having no strategy for ISIS after that terrorist organization has been on the march for months. The host asked if this projected weakness and Dianne Feinstein said, “I know what you want me to say but I am not going to say it in that sense.”
Dianne Feinstein then went on to state it in another sense, calling the president “cautious, maybe in this instance too cautious.” She then went on to list countries which are in jeopardy from ISIS and state that Barack Obama was wrong to call ISIS a JV team, saying the terrorist group is a “major varsity” team.
Here is how it went down:
Here is the open thread for Sunday, August 31st; please feel free to post links to interesting articles and to discuss whatever issues arise during the course of the day. Nothing is off-topic here.
Last week seemed like a slow week politically but we still managed to cover 15 stories. I understand that all of you are busy and cannot always find the time to check the blog for updates so why not subscribe to America’s Watchtower and receive email updates whenever I write a new post? That is the easiest way to follow the blog to ensure you never miss another post.
In addition to subscribing you can also follow America’s Watchtower on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the links on the right. But you will get more than that for I often post links to articles I probably will not be writing about so it is a great way to keep up with what is happening.
The Twitter widget in the sidebar is fully interactive. This widget updates my tweets in real time and allows you to respond to or retweet my tweets right from the blog. It also allows you to tweet me right from America’s Watchtower. How cool is that! If you do not have a Twitter account what better reason do you need to sign up for one!?
And now for this week’s musical selection: As I was watching television yesterday evening a car commercial came on and it featured Frank Sinatra’s ‘My Way.’ Except is was not Frank Sinatra’s version of the song, it was Sid Vicious’s version from 1978. Needless to say I was stunned to hear this version in a commercial and I knew immediately that I would have to use it today.
I have not heard this song in many, many years but always found it to be amusing so here it is.

You have been warned! Enjoy and have a Happy Labor Day.
In his latest Firewall video entitled ‘The Republic of Bill’ Bill Whittle describes what his version of a republic would be like. Not everyone is going to agree with all his points as he lays out a libertarian republic but here is is.
After James Foley was beheaded by ISIS, and in an attempt to save face, Barack Obama revealed, in what John Bolton called a stunning breach of security, that United States special forces attempted an unsuccessful rescue mission to save the doomed reporter.
Barack Obama was facing heat in the mainstream media for going golfing immediately following making a statement on James Foley so, in my opinion, he decided to make it known to the public that special forces had tried to rescue James Foley to show that he did everything in his power to prevent this even though it did not prevent him from missing his tee time.
Because we believe people should enter the country legally we have been called racists and nativists but the fact is that this presents the United States with a national security risk–a risk that many people do not want to admit exists.
Recently ISIS promised to bring the fight to America and of course many of us put two and two together and we realized that if ISIS was not here already it would be just as easy for them to sneak over the border as it is for everyone else.
Here is the latest Afterburner video by Bill Whittle entitled ‘Early Check Out.’ As usual you should not miss this one. Enjoy:
