We are the people your local Gestapoman warned you about.

"Yesterday Amerika, tomorrow, the World!"

Ronald Kenneth Noble (born 1956, at Fort Dix, New Jersey) is an American law enforcement officer, and the current Secretary General of Interpol. He is the son of an African-American father and a German-born mother.

He is a 1979 graduate of the University of New Hampshire with a bachelor's degree in economics and business administration and a 1982 graduate of Stanford Law School. Mr. Noble also is a tenured professor at the New York University School of Law, on leave of absence while serving at Interpol.

From 1993 until 1996 he was the Undersecretary for Enforcement of the United States Department of the Treasury, where he was in charge of the United States Secret Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, the Office of Foreign Assets Control, and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network. He was head of the Department's "Waco Administrative Review Team" which produced a report on the ATF's actions against the Branch Davidians leading to the Waco Siege. -- Wikipedia.

Interpol worried about spike in extremist websites

(AP) – 1 day ago

PARIS — The chief of Interpol says the "skyrocketing" number of extremist websites is making it easier for terrorists to recruit middle class youth around the world.

Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble says terrorist recruiters are exploiting the Web to target vulnerable young people who are "not on the radar of law enforcement."

He says fighting this kind of terrorist recruitment is especially difficult because viewing websites is not necessarily criminal. (Emphasis supplied, MBV)

Noble said the number of extremist websites tracked by police was 12 in 1998 and 4,500 in 2006.

He spoke Tuesday at a closed-door conference of world police chiefs in Paris. Interpol released his comments in a statement.

"Tracked"....or in other words...SPYING ! You can bet one's sweet behind that American agencies are "tracking" American citizens. You can also bet one's sweet behind that given the opportunity....these Americans representing the US government elite will fire on their own citizens. Guaranteed.

12 in 1998
4,500 in 2006
How many today?

That blogroll would provide insight on who/when/what is being targetted. For example, after the infamous MIAC report, did the list increase to include "christian veterans who took an oath to the Constitution", and who was dropped and when?

Does "Freedom of Information" act still apply, or has it been neutered?

Is Interpol an unregulated 'black ops team' that has immunities from US laws, and can do the 'dirty work' for the Gestapo?

Any fusion center folks who remember the oath they took and that the government was formed to protect people's rights and liberty could always help out...

Every agency listed here would benefit from a budgetary hair-cut.

Hint: freshman congress critters looking to make a name for themselves as fiscal watchdogs may easily be sicced on Noble. :^)

Wow...."Viewing websites is not necessarily criminal"??

Not necessarily??!

Not a good sign.

The bloody bastard had to bite his tongue when he said this; he WANTED to say, "viewing websites is not YET criminal."
Bastard.

"viewing websites is not necessarily criminal"
Reckon how long it'll take some good statist to figure out a way to correct THAT oversight? Especially in Europe where they don't even pay LIP service to individual liberties. Here it'll take a while longer. Of course they COULD just strong arm the people who write web browsers to put in nanny code to keep browsers from even going to places not on their approved list. I don't reckon M$'d have any problems complying. Same for Google and Netscape. Don't know about Mozilla and the little guys might be able to fly under the radar for a while if folks have a way to get their stuff.

Gonna get interesting.

So, Dutchman, you mentioned Radio Free Alabama a while back. Any notion when it'll be starting up and on what freq approximately? I reckon it'll have to be on one of the shortwave bands to maximize coverage area.

Perhaps it is the DEFINITION of "extremist" that has been enlarged.
BATFE: Bad Attitude Toward Freedom for Everyone. Must be in the marrow of their bones.
About that "Internet off switch." That would be like stopping up the safety valve.

Maybe "viewing websites is not necessarily criminal." here, but over in Airstrip One, it seems to be. I'm sure there will be some adjusting, nudging and incentivizing going on.

"Not necessarily criminal"...

So I guess they'll try and MAKE them criminal? Guilty by implication?

"Not neccessarily illegal" !!!
The arrogance of these aparatchiks is breathtaking.
This is the same man who along with Eric Holder did the cover up of the BATFE and FBI murders in Waco.
I will be the first to admit the Branch Davidians were weird and wacky, but thats not illegal.
These Gestapo types had no legal cause to raid the compound in the manner used and should have been put on trial for murder, along with Ron Horiuchi of Ruby ridge fame and Janet Reno who ordered the assaults.
The two major differences between Nazi Germany and the U.S. is we have the first ammendment which protects what we say and read, and the second ammendment which legally removes the governments monopoly on the use of force. Any attempt to infringe on either will provoke a firestorm of resistance and cause these Nazi's to regret their arrogant actions.

It isn't us that accounts for this, it's them.

I'm not so sure the actual number of "extremist websites" has increased so much as the definition of what constitutes an "extremist website" has changed to be more "inclusive."

Formerly Great Britain: "Teachers are being forced to report children as young as three to the authorities for using alleged ‘racist’ language, it was claimed last night.
Munira Mirza, a senior advisor to London Mayor Boris Johnson, said schools were being made to spy on nursery age youngsters by the Race Relations Act 2000.

Defender, re your link to the blog at lewrockwell.com, sorry, sir, but you and Mr. Nestman are totally off base here. I have cared for a child with ODD. It is real. It has nothing to do with adults. Nor does it have anything to do with independent thinking. In plain language ODD means “p****d off at the world”. The youngster I cared for definitely was that. Of course if you knew his background and upbringing prior to coming to the Children’s Home where I worked you would agree (with his Mother and the Psychologist who was working with him) that POed at the world was a rational response to his life.

But ODD is not something that applies or is applied to adults.

I would just like to point out that in 1998 there wasn't anywhere near the web traffic that there is now.

ELIZABETH WARREN [Obama-appointed head of the Consumer Financial Protection Agency] on "`dialing back' the First Amendment": "I actually want to add something to this, about where we've gone, how unbalanced things are. We talk about the campaign contributions—powerfully important. But I'll tell you about other parts of it. It's the lobbying world that never sleeps. So, yeah, even when you're not in election cycle, even when it's not just about talking to the specific representatives, it's every single day: get up, and see if you can find a chink, see if you can find a mistake, see if you can—let's attack this, let's do background on that. Let's go visit every single senator, let's go visit every single representative, let's go visit everybody in the media, to try to get a message out that will help our clients and will undercut doing the people's business. This is the part that scares me. It's even bigger than you talk about. You talk about the right place [campaign finance reform] to start in dialing it back, but we've got a lot that's in trouble here."

Haven't we heard the same language and rhetoric from Janet N and Potek?
Their entire propaganda shtick is getting repetitive and boring. But at least it's one way to tell your enemies from your friends. No more guessing which side anyone is on.
