"the FBI is confirming that this morning they began a number of raids against the homes of antiwar activists in Illinois, Minneapolis, Michigan, and North Carolina, claiming that they are 'seeking evidence relating to activities concerning the material support of terrorism.' 

"The old view that 'if we fight the terrorists abroad, we won't have to fight them here' is just that--the old view." The new view, Napolitano said, is "to counter violent extremism right here at home."

"Violent extremism" is one of those undefined police state terms that will mean whatever the government wants it to mean.

"Material support" is another of those undefined police state terms.

"...Americans are the most gullible people who ever existed. They tend to support the government instead of the Constitution, and almost every Republican and conservative regards civil liberty as a coddling device that encourages criminals and terrorists...

 As the Nazi leader Joseph Goebbels said, "think of the press as a great keyboard on which the Government can play."

As another Nazi leader Herman Goering said, " The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. Tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peace-makers for lack of patriotism and for exposing the country to danger."

Although this article does point out that American citizens can be transported to foreign countries to be tortured, it fails to mention that US citizens abroad may be legally assassinated.

This is how bad our nation has devolved...

Not that I think it's right what the FBI is doing, and I only comment because I find it curious that this article from Rense omits the information that these activists being harassed belong to the US Palestinian Community Network. Just seems rather odd to me is all.  Huh

The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity, but the one that removes awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside. --Allan Bloom
