American Neofascist Appointed as High Official Over Internal Police Force

The video is a compilation of Sheriff David Clarke’s extremism caught on video, for a post I wrote for the SPLC in October 2015 (see comments). He’s about to become the highest-ranking Patriot movement figure ever to hold federal office, at the Department of Homeland Security. UPDATE: Sherriff Clarke now appears to have plagiarized parts of a master thesis he wrote at the Naval Postgraduate School. 

There is good reason to be frightened
of David Clark.

Mr. Clarke will serve under another Trump appointee, the former  Commandant of Guantanamo,  General Kelley.

These Trumpers will oversee the US’ first internal security police force.  One of the central tenets of the US Constitution was to ban the existence of an internal army or police force.  The founders were rightly afraid that such a police force could impose a dictatorship.

Our freedom from an internal police changed after September  9 11.  Since 9-11 the US has had a a national police force withing the Department of Homeland Security. This force is a called the Federal Police Force. Unlike every other police force in the US, the FPS is not sworn to uphold the Constitution and has no procedure for internal review of actions taken by its officers.  READMORE: TSA drafts 2,000 agents, 50 canine teams for summer travel…

(From FOXNEWS) Now an American cop who claims not be bound by the law, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, has agreed to take a job as an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security.  Clarke he will work in the Office of Partnership and Engagement as a liaison to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies. He said he will start in June.

Last year I went to the Seattle Passport office to get my passport renewed. There was na issue when I tried to give the screener a pocket knife.  She refused to take it and instead called a cadre of men dressed in police uniforms that did not identify their agency. Eventually I discovered that they were part of the “Federal Protective Service.”  The FPS is an agency within the Department of Homeland Security. Unlike the Seattle Police, the state police, or even the FBI, the FPS has NO PROCEDURE for filing complaints against its officers. Worse, according to their website, the FPS code of conduct does not include the need to respect constitutional rights. I spent about $5000 for an attorney. She forced the GSA and FPS to divulge their video, confirming that the charges against me were absurd. We met with Jenny Durkan, the Federal Prosecutor. The charges were dropped.

The appointment comes just two weeks after an inquest into the dehydration death of an inmate at the Milwaukee County Jail recommended criminal charges against as many as seven staffers. Clarke wasn’t among them. A lengthy inquest into the dehydration death of a Milwaukee County Jail inmate raised troubling questions about how Clarke manages the jail, just as the White House was said to be considering him for the job. Seven jail staffers could face criminal charges after the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office outlined a case for the jury suggesting that disobedient inmates were routinely deprived of water as punishment and pleas for help were ignored.

Despite the investigation into his jail, Clarke remained popular on FOX news to the point where he was being promoted for a to run for U.S. Senate next year against Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin.

Last year, the frequent Fox News guest earned more than $105,000 in speaking fees — almost as much as his sheriff’s salary — at more than three dozen events across the country.

James Scaminaci III Here is what I see as the real danger of Clark in DHS. Bruce Wilson has been on this. Clark has direct links into Sheriff Mack’s network and the Oath Keepers network. There could be a surge of nativist militias like we saw from 2005 to 2009 with intimidation of Latino communities as an accessory to ICE raids. He has no real competence or expertise. So, what is his real purpose?

Peter Ouimette His first “liaison” question: “How many Oath Keepers and III Percenters are o the force? Good because trump is going to need them when he starts a violent civil war.” I wish this was funny.

David Neiwert Officially, the position is supposed to be that of a liaison to local law enforcement:

“Clarke said during a local radio interview Wednesday afternoon that he will be appointed as an assistant secretary in the Office of Partnership and Engagement, acting as a liaison between the agency and local police departments and likely pressuring them to enforce the Trump administration’s tough new crackdown on illegal immigration. The position that does not require Senate confirmation.”
