Intimidation: Law enforcement and FBI increasing abuses on US population

The intimidation continues

In advance of the NY demonstrations at the RNC, these so-called "FBI surveillance sweeps" are merely ruses. The FBI has no credible power to detain anyone on the pretext of someone exercising their rights.

The FBI has issued memoranda outlining methods to intimidate and dissuade the public from engaging in lawful protests. The media, as was in the case of WMD in Iraq, has been persuaded that "the right thing to do is to dissuade the public from doing anything."

Small problem. The media has become a branch or arm of the government.
