Federal Government Urged To Patrol City’s Streets
As if we don’t have enough intervention in the streets of America by the Federal government, longtime race-baiter Jesse Jackson urged Barack Obama to head back to the streets of Chicago and stop the violence by ordering the Department of Homeland Security to conduct street patrols.
Before a march on the city’s South Side, Jackson, a former Democratic presidential candidate, said America’s third most populous city needed more help than Mayor Rahm Emanuel and police superintendent Garry McCarthy could offer.
“When the president shows up, it shows ultimate national seriousness,” said Jackson, a Chicago resident. He also called for the US Department of Homeland Security to help patrol the streets of Chicago.
Jackson led nearly 150 people on a march from Martin Luther King Jr College Prep High School, where Pendleton was a student, to the park where she died a few blocks away.
“My greatest fear about the gun violence in Chicago is that we’re adjusting to it,” he said.

The 2005 USA Patriot Improvement and Reauthorization Act passed by Congress, however, established a “permanent police force” subject to the “supervision of the Secretary of Homeland Security.” According to the legislation, this new federal police force is empowered to “make arrests without warrant for any offense against the United States committed in their presence, or for any felony cognizable under the laws of the United States if they have reasonable grounds to believe that the person to be arrested has committed or is committing such felony.”
“The language conveys enormous discretionary and arbitrary powers,” former Reagan Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, Paul Craig Roberts, wrote in 2006. “Like every law in the US, this law also will be expansively interpreted and abused… Who is going to hold accountable a federal police protected by Homeland Security and the president?”
The Obama administration has yet to respond to Jackson’s demand. However, as gang-related violence in Obama’s hometown and elsewhere continues to claim lives and dominate headlines, it is entirely possible the federal government may directly intervene in Chicago as part of its effort to attack the Second Amendment and further meddle in local law enforcement duties under the hysterical cover of putting an end to “gun violence.”
Jackson had already gone on record with the Wall Street Journal in an interview that was posted January 30, 2013 and claimed that those “anti-government people” espousing what he called “Confederate ideology” would engage in terrorist activities unless the government enacts laws restricting one’s ability to possess firearms.
While there are some out there who are clearly “anti-government,” most of us simply want the Federal government to live within the boundaries our forefathers set. They are not content to do that and so continually are calling them to do so. That is not “anti-government.” That is demanding that they abide by the law.
Jackson’s use of the term “Confederate ideology” is simply short hand for those who believe in the Tenth Amendment, or State’s rights, including the use of nullification of Federal laws in order to adhere to the Constitution.
He also called those of us that believe in the Second Amendment “domestic terrorists” with the ability to “do something” in our fight against a “tyrannical government.”
Well friends, I’ll say it again, I have never advocated violent revolution, nor did the founding fathers, but I certainly will encourage people to step up and act responsibly when it comes to engaging the real domestic enemies of the Constitution lawfully and peacefully. If attacked though, don’t think there will not be a defensive play made by those who love liberty and desire to see the law followed. While we seek peace, it is those like Jackson and Obama who are set on bringing the violence to the people of the United States.
