I have written on all of these aspects extensively, explaining that a terrorist determination is not as simple as just labeling a certain group of people as such for whatever reason and claiming “they are terrorists.” Since that topic is not the primary focus of this article and so as not to spend too much time on it, yet give you a little context, know that YOU very well might be labeled as a “possible terrorist” by the U.S. government. It comes down to certain criteria that have been laid out, and if you meet those criteria, you make that watchlist.

In the Founders’ footsteps: Manufacturing terror
For instance, for over a decade the United States has waged a “War on Terror,” and this war has ostensibly provided the federal government justification for warrantless wiretapping, sweeping phone surveillance programs, and the execution of American citizens without trial, not to mention the actual wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In order to justify such policies, the War on Terror has got to be pretty important. So, who is it being fought against? Terrorists, presumably. But what’s a terrorist?
Obama Worse Than Bush On Civil Liberties Abuses
The emperor has no clothes. Now that the President has been exposed by the likes of concerned patriots like Edward Snowden, he is running around trying to rescue his legacy and save face to the staunch leftists who once supported him. Make no mistake: these recent new proposals are in response to U.S. tech companies, such as Cisco and Google, possibly losing billions in future sales to foreign firms rather than concern for the individual citizen.
The truth, and nothing but the truth, will set you free, Part I
The credibility of mainstream media has diminished so rapidly in recent years that I don’t think there are many ways to even measure such a drop. The one thing that does certainly stand out is the rise in independent and alternative media outlets.
Can you tell fact from fiction?
Space is lacking in this entire article to try to cover everything pertaining to the events of September 11th, 2001. Few are likely aware that many of the 9/11 Commission members themselves admitted that the entire investigation of 9/11 was designed to fail. In addition to that, every official agency that was involved in the “investigation” was a government agency — an obvious conflict of interest. Now, many people who have reviewed the claims of the 9/11 Truth movement, as it has come to be termed, assert that the magazine Popular Mechanics has adequately debunked “9/11 conspiracies.” In 2005, PM assembled a team of nine reporters and researchers to attempt to refute sixteen particular claims of the movement of skeptics.
