MIAC Report – Update

Blog Blast from Liberty Restoration Project:

BLOG ENTRY FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
MISSOURI LIBERTY GROUP RESPONDS TO MIAC MILITIA REPORT

The Liberty Restoration Project (www.libertyretorationproject.org), a Kansas City-based political education organization has begun to implement a strategy in response to a Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) Strategic Report on the modern militia movement. The report, released February 20th, suggests that bumper stickers and publications showing support for Ron Paul, the Libertarian Party, the Campaign for Liberty, and other aspects of the Freedom Movement may be “political paraphernalia” used by members of radical militia groups. The report also considers anti-abortion signage, documentaries such as Freedom to Fascism, the Gadsden Flag, and signage critical of the Federal Reserve Bank to be “propaganda” and possible indications of paramilitary extremism.

The Liberty Restoration Project (LRP) has announced a five-part strategy to face the implications of the MIAC report:

1. SUNSHINE/FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUESTS: On Monday, March 16th, requests for documents, emails, publications and multimedia used as sources for the MIAC Report were made under the Sunshine Law in Missouri by members of LRP. These requests for developmental resources and information were hand-delivered to Governor Nixon, the State Highway Patrol, the Missouri Office of Homeland Security, and the Department of Public Safety.

2. THE MISSOURI LEGISLATURE: On Wednesday, March 18th an email blast and phone bank campaign will be launched to Missouri legislative representatives to make them aware of the Sunshine Law requests and to provide the MIAC information and to ask for an investigation. Once the Legislature is back in session (March 23rd), representatives of LRP, Campaign for Liberty, and other participants in the Freedom Movement will lobby legislators in person in Jefferson City.

3. MONEY TALKS: Working with Restore the Republic, Kansas City activists will begin strategic communication with the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and the Missouri Tourism Council. They will be notifying them of the intent to deter tourism and travel to Missouri until a retraction is made by Governor Nixon.

4. PUBLIC RELATIONS: Members of the Liberty Restoration Project will be releasing Letters to the Editor and Opinion Articles once the Governor and other agencies have had three days to reply to the Sunshine requests. The editorials will be sent to all newsprint and news media in Missouri.

5. A CALL TO JOIN US AND CONTINUE THE WORK: We in the Freedom Movement must continue the message. We have nothing to hide and nothing to fear – it is the ones who wrote the MIAC report that fear the Freedom Message. The Campaign for Liberty Regional Conference must sell out and get media attention and the Kansas City Monopoly March (End the FED II) on April 25th could be the biggest in the nation!

While the inclusion of our political movement may be a benign mistake in the intent of the MIAC report, the suggestion that criticism of government policy, a political philosophy outside of mainstream party design, and liberal activism is akin to terrorism must be revealed and abolished in its earliest stages. LRP also wishes the Department of Homeland Security to differentiate paramilitary anti-government groups, which the report considers to be “militia”, with a Constitutional militia which exists in many states throughout the Union. The Liberty Restoration Project is demanding a retraction by the Governor as the Chief Executive in title on the report itself and an apology from the MIAC. Please show your support by volunteering to phone-bank, donating, checking with officials in your state to see if similar documents exist, or just sending along a letter of encouragement.

In Liberty,
Kent Andel, The Liberty Restoration Project

    For actual new information on this report, the National Fusion Center Conference from which it was possibly leaked, the background on the MSHP’s proven record of illegally placing citizen information in law enforcement databases, and much more that you won’t find anywhere else, see
