Threat from the inside

July 11, 2013 

Have you read/heard of the government's latest scam? It's called the Insider's Threat Program. This is an actual government programimposed on Americans by the Obama government.

What it does is encourage your fellow government coworker to report on you if they see "indicators of insider threat behavior" which might include lifestyles, attitudes and behaviors such as "financial troubles, odd working working hours or unexplained travel" as a way of predicting whether your coworkers might "do harm to the United States."

These coworkers who are designated as "managers of special insider threat" will have "regular, timely and, if possible, electronic access to employees' personnel, payroll, disciplinary" and "personal contacts" files as well as their use of "computer networks, polygraph results, travel reports and financial disclosure forms."

So, if you are a government worker, when you show up for work tomorrow and a coworker says, "Good Morning!" be suspicious, be very suspicious. He or she could be a "manager of special insider threat."

Shades of Stalinism! President Obama strikes at freedom again.
