Fusion center director: We don’t spy on Americans, just anti-government Americans.

Well, that's a relief.
Law enforcement intelligence-processing fusion centers have long come under attack for spying on Americans. The Arkansas director wanted to clarify the truth: centers only spies on some Americans – those who appear to be a threat to the government.
In trying to clear up the ‘misconceptions’ about the conduct of fusion centers, Arkansas State Fusion Center Director Richard Davis simply confirmed Americans’ fears: the center does in fact spy on Americans – but only on those who are suspected to be ‘anti-government’.
“The misconceptions are that we are conducting spying operations on US citizens, which is of course not a fact. That is absolutely not what we do,” he told the NWA Homepage, which supports KNWA-TV and Fox 24.
After claiming that his office ‘absolutely’ does not spy on Americans, he proceeded to explain that this does not apply to those who could be interpreted as a ‘threat’ to national security. Davis said his office places its focus on international plots, “domestic terrorism and certain groups that are anti-government. We want to kind of take a look at that and receive that information.”

Ministry of Truth doublespeak.

We do not spy on Americans.
I repeat.
We do not, not spy on Americans.

In that case...

I am not anti-government.
I repeat.
I am not, not anti-government.

... but; who watches the anti-American government?

Has "1984" just been put on the spy school reading list?

Duh! Gommer!

All the three letter agencies try to equate people who are anti-bad government with those who are anti-government. If the fusion centers were truly looking for domestic terrorist, they'd have to look no further than the J. Edgar Hoover Building and all field offices. This claim though, is phony on the face of it. When the Pittsburgh Fusion Center included Tea Party activists in their investigations, I knew they were neo-nazi scum and serial liars.

Insofar as this post is related to spying on Americans, I felt behooved to connect some dots for you. As you may know, the government has created various lists of people who for various reasons, are "tagged" with designations which can cause serious consequences for those who find themselves on these lists. Travel notwithstanding, considering the nature of this site, I think it would be prudent to bring something to your attention.
As you know, the FBI has now created a "dossier" on every citizen in this nation. However, even before McCarthy started his Communist list, the USG struggled to connect various Department "databases"..that is..until a software application called PROMIS came along in the late 80's, which was developed by a company called Inslaw. The Inslaw "story", is so broad in scale, it's now known as the "Octopus". It would behoove you to understand it's implications to the gun "background check" issue, as well as the "lists", as the Promis software allows the USG to "legally" connect dots found in all the different databases.
In the early 80's the DOJ wanted this software to "track" all their cases around the country. In the early 90's..they STOLE it from Inslaw..wherein..the story gets fucking weird. Read this, and you will begin to see why I've posted this here...
…this might inspire you more…Oliver North, Rex84 Northridge and PROMIS
Apparently, Israel was not the only country interested in using PROMIS for internal security purposes. Lt. Col. Oliver North also may have been using the program. According to several intelligence community sources, PROMIS was in use at a 6,100-square-foot command center built on the sixth floor of the Justice Department. According to both a contractor who helped design the center and information disclosed during the Iran-Contra hearings, Oliver North had a similar, but smaller, White House operations room that was connected by computer link to the DOJ’s command center.

Using the computers in his command center, North tracked dissidents and potential troublemakers within the United States as part of a domestic emergency preparedness program, commissioned under Reagan’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), according to sources and published reports. Using PROMIS, sources point out, North could have drawn up lists of anyone ever arrested for a political protest, for example, or anyone who had ever refused to pay their taxes. Compared to PROMIS, Richard Nixon’s enemies list or Sen. Joe McCarthy’s blacklist look downright crude. This operation was so sensitive that when Rep. Jack Brooks asked North about it during the Iran-Contra hearings, the hearing was immediately suspended pending an executive (secret) conference. When the hearings were reconvened, the issue of North’s FEMA dealings was dropped. "unquote

This whole story continues to this day, albeit hidden by virtue of Oblabla’s Secrecy State. Btw, the other Rex84 connection was to Operation Northridge, which as you may already know, was a fully planned RED blame Castro. Sound familiar? It should.
However, my point is..GUNS AND DISSIDENTS TRACKING. whudda thunk. Promis is now ..well, think NSA. Only it goes by another name now.
