Is it any wonder that 45% of the American People say they are fearful of their government? Is this the kind of United States that our constitution and Bill of Rights were designed to protect?
In the early days of the newly elected Obama administration in 2009, many citizens were shocked to learn that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had issued an internal memo that referred to conservative Christians who believe the Bible, citizens who emphasize a strict adherence to the Constitution, and those who are pro-life as “potential homegrown terrorists.”
Apparently such thinking has also begun to infect state police organizations and other law enforcement groups.
According to Steven H. Ahle, the Colorado State Police recently held a seminar for law enforcement personnel in the state during which conservative evangelical Christians and Catholics are referred to as “extremists” who must be watched closely by law enforcement.

According to a letter written by Ron Trowbridge, undersheriff with the Prowers County, Colo., Sheriff’s Office, Christians who believe the Bible is the literal word of God and others who do not agree with the changes taking place in America could find themselves under scrutiny by law enforcement authorities and Homeland Security, Steven H. Ahle wrote at Red Statements Friday.
Trowbridge, a law enforcement officer with many years of experience, told Ahle that he recently attended a training session in La Junta, Colo., where, he says, Colorado State Patrol Trooper Joe Kluczynski gave a 2-hour presentation on the “sovereign citizen” movement.
“Kluczynski spent most of his two hours focusing on how, in his view and apparently the view of Homeland Security, people turn to the sovereign citizen movement,” he wrote.
News of the training comes on the heels of a report at K99.com that says “Colorado is being targeted with an attempt to set up loopholes that will allow the U.S. Secret Service to arrest and remove an elected sheriff for refusing to enforce the law, or anyone breaking the law.”
Recently, Colorado passed several sweeping gun control measures and some county sheriffs, like Weld County Sheriff John Cooke, have said they would not enforce mandates that infringe on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
Because of his bravery, we are able to get an inside look on how nefarious forces within our government are attempting to indoctrinate our law officers.
Trowbridge’s entire letter can be seen here.
“Why are you lecturing on Christians, who do not commit these type of killings? Why are you not lecturing officers on Muslims and liberals?”
Obviously, it was not his intent to prevent any further killings in the future but to defame Christians and to label them as racists because they oppose the disastrous policies of President Barack Obama.
While Kluczynski emphasized that sovereign citizens have a right to their beliefs, he was clearly teaching that the groups he had listed should be watched by law enforcement and should be treated with caution because of their potential to assault law enforcement. Kluczynski explained why he believed these groups were dangerous saying they were angry over the election of a black president. When someone in the group suggested the failing economy was probably much more to blame, Kluczynski intimated that those who are not going along with the changes in America will need to be controlled by law enforcement. Kluczynski even later questioned some of the troopers present if they were willing and prepared to confiscate “illegal” weapons if ordered to.
