U.S. Businessmen Given Right to " Shoot To Kill " & Conservatives Rebel Against John McCain

Two major stories of the day;
First there is the incredible and hard to believe it's true story of Infragard which sounds more like some questionable " Conspiracy Theory " but it seems legitimate which claims some 23,000 businessmen have been given the right to " Shoot to Kill " in a time of martial law or national crisis in the USA.

The second major story is that of the Republicans & conservatives abandoning John McCain.

The Internet is a buzz with this story about Infragard
Buisnessmen can "shoot to kill " in the event of martial law!!
Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman
The Progressive magazine is reporting that more than 23,000 representatives of private industry are working quietly with the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. The business leaders form a group known as InfraGard that receives warnings of terrorist threats directly from the FBI before the public does. We speak with the reporter who broke the story and the editor of The Progressive, Matt Rothschild.

So remember to check out Infragard website;it seems real!!! see HomePage

By Matthew Rothschild
12/02/08 " The Progressive" -- -- Today, more than 23,000 representatives of private industry are working quietly with the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. The members of this rapidly growing group, called InfraGard, receive secret warnings of terrorist threats before the public does—and, at least on one occasion, before elected officials. In return, they provide information to the government, which alarms the ACLU. But there may be more to it than that. One business executive, who showed me his InfraGard card, told me they have permission to “shoot to kill” in the event of martial law.

and : from AlterNet FBI Deputizes Private Contractors With Extraordinary Powers, Including 'Shoot to Kill' By Matthew Rothschild, The Progressive. Posted February 8, 2008.

And for instance check out post at Zack de la rocha networkThe Fbi Has Created A Private Entity, Called "infragard", Wh, Insider, Matthew Rothschild, blows the whistle:post Feb 10 2008

In return for being in the know, InfraGard members
cooperate with the FBI and Homeland Security. "InfraGard
members have contributed to about 100 FBI cases," Schneck
says. "What InfraGard brings you is reach into the regional
and local communities. We are a 22,000-member vetted body
of subject-matter experts that reaches across seventeen
matrixes. All the different stovepipes can connect with

Schneck is proud of the relationships the InfraGard Members
Alliance has built with the FBI. "If you had to call
1-800-FBI, you probably wouldn't bother," she says. "But
if you knew Joe from a local meeting you had with him over
a donut, you might call them. Either to give or to get. We
want everyone to have a little black book."

This black book may come in handy in times of an
emergency. "On the back of each membership card," Schneck
says, "we have all the numbers you'd need: for Homeland
Security, for the FBI, for the cyber center. And by calling
up as an InfraGard member, you will be listened to." She
also says that members would have an easier time obtaining a
"special telecommunications card that will enable your call
to go through when others will not."

This special status concerns the ACLU.

"The FBI should not be creating a privileged class of
Americans who get special treatment," says Jay Stanley,
public education director of the ACLU's technology and
liberty program. "There's no 'business class' in law
enforcement. If there's information the FBI can share with
22,000 corporate bigwigs, why don't they just share it with
the public? That's who their real 'special relationship' is
supposed to be with. Secrecy is not a party favor to be given
out to friends. . . . This bears a disturbing resemblance
to the FBI's handing out 'goodies' to corporations in return
for folding them into its domestic surveillance machinery."

When the government raises its alert levels, InfraGard is
in the loop. For instance, in a press release on February
7, 2003, the Secretary of Homeland Security and the
Attorney General announced that the national alert level
was being raised from yellow to orange. They then listed
"additional steps" that agencies were taking to "increase
their protective measures." One of those steps was to
"provide alert information to InfraGard program."

And there is more news on the revolt within the Republican Party against John McCain as presidential nominee.
A number of Republicans and conservatives are voicing their concerns about John McCain as Republican nominee . Some of them along with Ann Coulter as discussed in my last post are saying that they would rather casts their votes for Hillary Clinton. This might seem like good news for Hillary but their endorsements of her may in fact hurt her campaign. What these conservative Republicans are saying is that they believe Hillary Clinton on most issues is seen by them as being more conservative than John MacCain. So I have said these endorsements of Hillary could better be characterized as " Negative-Endorsemnts ".

Of course the other possibly good news about all this is that it seems we are watching the conservative movement and the Republicans imploding . To paraphrase conservative media personality Glenn Beck who has said that maybe it is better that the Republican party dissolve so it can be rebuilt as a true or purer Conservative Movement.

Pat Buchanan Ann Coulter support Hillary Clinton
And a note on Hillary as being a nasty piece of work by playing one ethnic group against another and scape-goating Illegal Immigrants and whatever else will get her more votes .
