With Little Fanfare, AG William Barr Announces Orwellian Pre-Crime Program

BY Herschel Smith
1 year ago

Via reader Joe, this terrible report.

Last Wednesday, U.S. Attorney General William Barr issued a memorandum to all U.S. attorneys, law enforcement agencies and top ranking Justice Department officials announcing the imminent implementation of a new “national disruption and early engagement program” aimed at detecting potential mass shooters before they commit any crime.

Per the memorandum, Barr has “directed the Department [of Justice] and the FBI to lead an effort to refine our ability to identify, assess and engage potential mass shooters before they strike.” The Attorney General further described the coming initiative, slated to be implemented early next year, as “an efficient, effective and programmatic strategy to disrupt individuals who are mobilizing towards violence, by all lawful means.” More specific information about the program is set to follow the recent memorandum, according to Barr, though it is unclear if that forthcoming document will be made public.

Barr also requested that those who received the memorandum send their “best and brightest” to a training conference at FBI headquarters this coming December where the DOJ, FBI and “private sector partners” will prepare for the full implementation of the new policy and will also be able to provide “new ideas” for inclusion in the program.

Perhaps the most jarring aspect of the memorandum is Barr’s frank admission that many of the “early engagement” tactics that the new program would utilize were “born of the posture we adopted with respect to terrorist threats.” In other words, the foundation for many of the policies utilized following the post-9/11 “war on terror” are also the foundation for the “early engagement” tactics that Barr seeks to use to identify potential criminals as part of this new policy. Though those “war on terror” policies have largely targeted individuals abroad, Barr’s memorandum makes it clear that some of those same controversial tactics will soon be used domestically.

Barr’s memorandum also alludes to current practices by the FBI and DOJ that will shape the new plan. Though more specifics of the new policy will be provided in the forthcoming notice, Barr notes that “newly developed tactics” used by the Joint Terrorist Task Forces “include the use of clinical psychologists, threat assessment professionals, intervention teams and community groups” to detect risk and suggests that the new “early engagement program” will work along similar lines. Barr also alludes to this “community” approach in a separate instance, when he writes that “when the public ‘says something’ to alert us to a potential threat, we must do something.”

As I’ve said before, “Ouija boards, palm readers, witches, warlocks, carnival fortune tellers, tribal witchdoctors, and “small changes that might foretell violence.”

It’s all the same thing to me, and if you have any sense at all, you too.  The Bible clearly says that those guilty of divination will not inherit the kingdom of heaven, and that the Lord hates such people (Galatians 5:19-21, Leviticus 19:24-32, Deuteronomy 18:9-15, Jeremiah 27: 9-19, Exodus 22: 18-19, 1 Samuel 15:23, Isaiah 2:5-8).”

God will not bless these designs.  No, I’m not saying they won’t catch a person here or there they think might have done something had it not been for the cops on their doorstep.  If you’re vision is that short-sighted, you need spectacles.

I’m saying something much deeper and more extensive.  When a country sacrifices it’s unborn, arms the state, tries to disarm it’s people and render them incapable of defense, and allows forcible conversion of children to Islam in its schools, God has turned His back on that people.  That brings a whole host of awful things down.  God is sovereign, the only lawgiver.  He will not be mocked.

We are at the end of an era.  America is “storing up wrath” for itself (Romans 1:5), and that means the righteous will suffer earthly pains in the wake of God’s judgment on the wicked.  Those who have a salvific relationship with Christ will face the doom of earthly judgment (even if not heavenly judgment) along with everyone else.

We’re all headed for hard times, folks.

And just to make sure you’ve got this, William Barr is Donald Trump’s AG.  Trump managed to implement red flag laws without red flag laws.  He said he would do it, and the plans are in place.  This is your president.  He owns this.  You don’t think Barr is acting on his own, do you?

    These policies will be expanded to include political opinions not approved by the state. This is universally the practice in all communist societies. It always comes to that. They will label people as criminals and/or mentally ill merely for favoring traditional values. It is already happening in blue states. Thanks to immigration and public school indoctrination most states will be blue in far less time than most imagine.

    So let me get this straight. We are to trust the FBI and DOJ which is full of known liars and quite possibly traitors? The same FBI and other “Intelligence Services” that tried to remove a duly elected President because they simply don’t like him? I don’t think so! The real killers and terrorists wear the badge and official costume of the state. From the lowliest town sheriff right up to the FBI itself, the ranks of “law enforcement” are comprised of thugs, liars, and murderers. This is the final nail in the coffin of the USofA, or at least what was left of it. It’s much later than we think, fellow Patriots. This will not end well.

    God doesn’t need the West or white men, we need Him.

    “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time….Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;…But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.”

    There was a lot of blather on the webz recently linked through wrsa and elsewhere, about how only Religion can save America and how only Christians can save America. This is the ROOT of the problem. This is an merely mouthed, mushy, incoherent broad brush stroke and more part of the problem than a solution, and more indicative of what is wrong than an answer to the arriving judgement.

    We must be specific both to the problem and answer. The West has its religion. It is Humanism, self as a god. We must name the enemy and name the Answer. The Christianity of America is Zionism. Neither of these can save anything, at all.

    We are sinners. We desire to rule ourselves, we desire to feel good in religion, we desire an out, without works of faith, a faith that works. There are consequences for sin, these are judgement, wrath, death and hell. Now, there is no collective salvation of the soul but when the One who was hanged on a cross to redeem us is denied, en masse, the results are free to witness. Even the heathen Humanists can’t deny the coming destruction that we as a civilization deserve, while the Zionists actively participate in ushering in our demise. We can’t be good enough on our own to fix this problem. “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” but there was one who IS good enough and if we would believe on Him, Christ Jesus again, maybe, just maybe we can save the West. The problem is, in America alone, the 70 million dead babies and non-stop unjust waring against the world. These are on account, it will be reconciled, a holy reckoning. You don’t have to be a Christian to know that you can’t kill 70 million babies and get away with it.

    The Old Testament pattern is clear and we’ve taken to it, the warnings of God are in His Holy Word and being manifest all around us now. The entirety of Scripture is for our edification and reproof. Nobody I know has even read the whole bible, yet they claim some kind christian gnostic mysticism or something. The Churches and internet are full of these retarded heretics and blasphemers of Christ.

    As Mr. Herschel states; we’ve turned from the one true God, “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;” to wicked and vile idolatry of the most repugnant types, all are turned toward being sons of perdition and following after devils even in the Churches.

    And YES, I still believe what my King James Holy Bible says, every last word. The tools that our LORD has used, aside from the flood, which He made covenant He would not do again (note to the SBC: God killed every man, woman, and child on earth save 8, that’s your hippy love god?), are wars, famines, pestilence, and plagues. They are all coming, all of them, and we deserve it, and worse. I’m claiming no special knowledge; I merely read my Holy Bible and observe the world. Cancer and obesity rates skyrocketing, being overrun by barbarians; these things aren’t surprising in the least to me.

    God doesn’t need the West or white men, we need Him. Judgement is here.

    When your problem is with God, only God can fix it. Read those verses at the top, they bring tears to my eyes, you merely mouthed panty waist fakers. That’s the God I serve, that’s the God, the only God, that can save us.

    “Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.”

    This is a binary choice, the only choice, there is not third thing. Judgement starts in the church. Only Christ can save us now. On your knees before Christ who raised up himself from the dead, or on your knees to take a commie bullet, choose this day what Master you will serve!

    Fred, not sure why you get on this site with that “mealy mouthed panty waist fakers” stuff. I’m pretty sure those folks don’t read Herschel’s posts here.

    Yes, only God can save this country at this point. Will He? I don’t know.
    There are still Christians in this country but there are good Christians in all countries and we can see that all countries are not blessed like America has been.

    We can certainly know that no politicians can or will save this country.
    The rest of us do what we can where we are at.
