Colorado Undersheriff Claims DHS, State Police are Targeting Christians

In the following letter posted at Restatements and republished by a number of news outlets throughout the country, an undersheriff in Colorado warns that he attended a law enforcement seminar where an officer funded by the Department of Homeland Security warned the group of Colorado law enforcers to be on the lookout for Christians, especially those who take the Bible literally. Here’s the letter:

Subject: CSP Training
Date: Fri, 5 Apr 2013 10:30:22 -0600

On April 1, 2013 I attended training in La Junta, Colorado hosted by the Colorado State Patrol (CSP). The training was from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm and covered two topics, Sovereign Citizens, and Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs. I was pretty familiar with motorcycle gangs but since we often deal with the so-called sovereign citizen groups I was interested to see what they had to say. The group consisted of police officers, deputies, and CSP troopers. There were about 20 people in attendance.

Trooper Joe Kluczynski taught a 2-hour section on sovereign citizens. 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. Kluczynski started off by saying there are probably some sovereign citizens in this room and gave a generalized list of those groups that have sovereign citizen views. Among those groups, Kluczynski had listed, were those who believe America was founded on godly principles, Christians who take the Bible literally, and “fundamentalists”. Kluczynski did not explain what he meant by “fundamentalists” but from the context it was clear he was referring again to those who took the Bible literally or “too seriously.”

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.

Kluczynski’s assignment with the CSP was an Analyst for the Colorado Information Analysis Center, (CIAC). CIAC is funded by Homeland Security funds and run by the CSP. Kluczynski said he gets his information from the Department of Homeland Security. Kluczynski said he was leaving the CSP at the end of that week (March 29, 2013) to begin his new career with Homeland Security. I thought he was perfect for the job.

  • LibertysSon

    And so it begins. I think folks are mad about the leftist socialistict ideas Mr O has, not his skin color.

    • Sandra Lee Smith

      They are; but that doesn’t serve the agenda, so it’s ignored and lied about. Most of the people I talk to could care less about skin color; but politics is a whole other matter!

  • William

    Buckle up.

  • SHOW ME, where Christians who believe the Bible literally or believe this country was founded on Godly principles, have demonstrated or acted out violence and anarchy? Where is the evidence of this such that they are now considered a threat??

    • HeisLord

      They don’t need evidence to lie

    • Sandra Lee Smith

      There is such evidence, but not in this century; go back to the 19th century, and look at what they did to slaves and Native peoples. On the other hand that wasn’t very Christian behavior either, in truth. However, when you realize WHO it is who’s behind all that’s currently happening globally, then this makes perfect, if warped, sense!

    • There is no truth to it Ted, like most of what the left says. The sad part is how firmly they believe the lies.

    • Are you freaking kidding? Dr. Tiller? DEAD!

      You think an atheist did that?

      If only that were an isolated incident of Christ inspired violence and hate.

      GROW UP!

  • vietnamvet1971

    Being a Christian means we are Extremist, Zealots, Crazies, of course Jesus said we would not escape being Persecuted so get ready to stand up or let these Evil Liberals take our Religious Freedoms.

  • An Unapologetic Christian

    Matthew 10:19-22
    “…But when they arrest you, do not worry
    about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what
    to say, for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father
    speaking through you.”
    “Brother will betray brother to death, and
    father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have
    them put to death. All men will hate you because of me, but he who
    stands firm to the end will be saved.”

    • HeisLord

      On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand! Thank you Unapologetic Christian!

      amen, and God bless you

  • Steve Sossin

    There are two types left- the brainwashed, and the rest of us… This Kluczynski guy is among the brainwashed ( or ) those who would gladly turn against their fellow citizens if they thought they were on the ‘strong’ side… Well, I have news for him- he’s NOT!

  • will they go after the bishops and even the pope? too…the popes throughout history they been there, done that in the name of Christ Jesus.

  • Patriots4Freedom

    A brainwashed Democrat feeding his Leftists ideas. As Ted Nugent would say “KISS MY A$$”

  • Curt

    I am not a Christian but I stand with those who are should our government turn against you or any group. My question to Christians however is will you stand with unbelievers too? What if the government goes after satanists, gays, pot smokers, Muslims, pornographers, etc? Are you going to stand strong with them as well? If not, then you are not true believers in liberty except as it pertains to your group only. Liberty is for everyone or its for no one.

    • Linda

      My Jesus died for the unbelievers too. God is LOVE, His mercy endures forever and He gives grace (unmerited favor) to the humble.
      There is a heaven to gain and a hell to shun.

    • Ruth

      The government will never go after that which they idolize.

      • Curt

        Strange thing to say since everyone in my impromptu list has been attacked by our government. We all need to protect each others rights, Not just those who we agree with. You really believe that they’ve never gone after pot smokers, gays or Muslims? Truthfully, when I was a Christian I found most Christians only believed in a special brand of liberty that applied only to Christian values. That’s not liberty!!!

        • alwaysgrams

          Let us hope Christians will remember what they are admonished to do. Love one another.

        • [email protected]

          Curt, that is called the religious business. Hitler lost because he went after religion. We’re now 230 years into our 300 year lifespan, and this great republic may very well fall short of the 300 year time span because of our foolishness…

    • …I stand with ALL who love freedom and liberty…and I AM a Christian, an old White Guy, a VietNam Veteran and I DO own guns…

    • alwaysgrams

      That is so true. The job of a Christian is to love one another. We must never forget what our mission is. Stand together and love on another.

      • [email protected]

        …sorry to tell you guy, but our mission is to bring the non-believers into the flock, protect the widows and orphans and wear the cloak of Christianity 24/7. What we do and what we say defines us, yet God truly knows every thought and actions do not speak louder than our thoughts.

    • to “stand with them” means your fighting their fight with them. I am a christian and I have friends in just about every group you listed. I support their free choice and the freedom that allows them to do what they wish (within the law)… and if needed, I’ll support them when they fall to help them get back up on their feet again.

      • Curt

        William, you added the caveat of “within the law”. So if the government passes a law against worshiping Jesus I should not stand with you? Laws that take away individual rights are meant to be broken and fought against in my humble opinion.

    • Christians Go into the gutter but only to bring out the ones who believe and repent of all those things you speak of. As God said their will not be such in his house. Those who choose Jesus as Savior must believe he is able to save you FROM sin. Jesus washes those who choose him from all their sin so they can be a spotless bride. If You choose Jesus you must be willing to let go of sin. Washing usually means removing the dirt, it stays in the water and you end up cleaner each time you get washed. If you will not let Jesus wash you then you have no part of him… Jesus said it, I just pass it on.

  • JRLittle

    How nauseating. Kluczynski is just a puppet dancing for his masters. I don’t care what anyone says, America WAS FOUNDED on Biblical principles-all one has to do is to do their homework to understand this. I will go to my grave fighting for what is right and will not be forced to bow down to anyone opposed to this truth. We need to fight to take our country back!

  • James

    Hitler had the Brown Shirts and Obama has the Homeland
    Security. Why were they ever formed anyway? We already had the FBI, ATF, Secret
    Service, and Local police. They were
    formed for the same reason that the Brown Shirts were formed.

    • 2iceblest

      They’ve got brown shirts, too! The demons use the same eugenic and elitist ideals throughout history.

  • Hes just stating the obvious here. Old people and veterans are on that list too.

    • Sandra Lee Smith

      Yep and old white veterans who are also Christians are right at the top!

    • Kent2012

      yes and we could be the most dangerous…..many of us are well trained and have not forgotten what we saw…….

  • Linda

    For me to live is Christ and to die is gain. If God be for us who can be against us? Don’t fear those who can kill the body, but fear the One Who can cast you into everlasting hell.

  • Disgusted

    As a Christian, I am offended by this type of treatment to those of us who believe in Jesue Christ and the Bible. The end of time is upon us! I am not against the presidnt because of his skin color but am opposed to him because of his policies and corruption.

  • Sandra Lee Smith

    The PTB are ruled by one person, and that person has a personal grudge against all who follow the ways of his personal “opposition”. Any who do not understand that this is a spriitual war we’re in, with major eternal consequences for each of us, is in huge trouble! The LIARS are in control at present, led by the father of lies, through his many front groups. But there is another agenda being worked out at the same time with a very different goal, and we need to stay focused on that; not be distracted and divided by the lies and divisive techniques!

    • The choice must be and it must be freely chosen. You would not want some one who hates your very existance to live in your house… neither does God. Just ask Lucifer who was created to forever be in the presence of God. A mighty cherub that could not do it for eternity. Best to find out now who will choose Jesus and who wont. Lies will be flowing like a river for those who choose them.

  • Lizelot

    This is outrageous. Here I thought Liberals/Progressives/socialists/Homeland Security are against “profiling.” Haven’t they repeatedly said so? Oh, I forget, that’s only when they want to protect and use the ones that may be profiled , s.a. illegals and Muslims. All others, esp. people with different values and principles, are fair game, no matter that they are decent, everyday citizens and never have given any provable trouble.

    This is so heavy-handed it smacks of tyranny and bias. But, hey, what do I know.

  • Fubarjoe

    Sounds like this idiot got his information from the ADL or the SPLC, pro zionist organizations. The Jews killed Christ, rejoice, now they want to kill us.

  • Lol you’re all taking this too extreme. The fact that this article even exists and the comments quoting the bible below just serve to backup his statements.

    • Vietnam vet

      Christ was killed for what reason? He threatened the establishment’s control of the people. Obama’s government is threatened by Christians in the same way. We do not drink the kool aid, and we resist being herded into their worldview. One day soon, you liberals are going to push too far.

  • The Embryo Parson
  • It’s Not just Christians and for those of you who Never say so,Christ Was a Jew!

    Obama uses class warfare,racism,”divide and conquer” as policy! “Separation of Church and State! The Constitution has been eviscerated,The Constitutional Republic,Freedom,opportunity no longer exist and what can a Patriot,a person who,or whose parents,grandparents great,great grandparents risked everything to embrace freedom and leave Obama’s tyranny behind.

    Ultimately the present and inevitable tyrant waits for the “perfect storm”,a crisis,crises to strike! In the the end,a lawless society,a society without las,institutions(family,religion,honor,self-reliance cannot exist!

    Obama is “stage 4 cancer! the bankruptcy of America,Americans,the devolved economy are 5+ decades in the making. Vietnam,the Not “Great Society”,a corrupt electoral system,impeachments,assassinations,the collapse of checks and balances and honor metastasized!

    Welcome to the “divided”,lawless tyranny called America once the
    most admired,most Free country on the planet!

    “live free or die”

  • DHS is an armed military controlled by the Federal government but says it is not part of the military so as to avoid that nasty little law about using the military against it’s own people. You know, just like Hitler and the rest. Change the name and do it anyway… Sound familiar?

    • Yeah, I trust in Jesus as a savior so I am probably on their list. Doesn’t matter as long as I am on the Kings list as one of His. And my King is a cuss word for these nonbelievers. They have to wonder if they are a majority or not. We already know, God said so.

  • Lilac Infidelus

    Obama isn’t black. He has everyone fooled. He is Arab-American and his paltry 6.25% negro blood doesn’t even get him into the African-American genetic group (which requires at least 12%). Therefore, hating him doesn’t even qualify someone to be “anti-black”. He doesn’t even look black. Stand him next to a real African-American and he is a sickly greenish-yellow. Stand him next to his muslim Arab brothers, and he is the same color. People need to wake up and stop tolerating this “anti-black” nonsense.

  • 1_Eddie_1

    Officer Friendly is in violation of his oath to uphold and support the Constitution of the United States of America, if he confiscates firearms. Officer Friendly is also deluded and confused on the issue of Christians. I also believe that he is deluded and confused on the issue of why people are upset in the country. I do not think that race is a factor. In the church that I attend we have people of different ethnic, racial, and former religious backgrounds. The local Sheriff’s Deputies enjoy their detail at our church. They are in no danger from us.

  • ramesaz

    It is so apparent that our government is slowly enlisting such people as this instructor who believes in fundamentally changing America into a atheistic hedonist socialist society. The leftists are dividing the country and are succeeding in converting many to the God-less left. We are no longer a free safe country and the time will come when we will either have to stand solid for our freedom or become slaves to the evil one. This is plainly a battle between good and evil. And right now we are losing. Homeland Security is not only building an arsenal of ammunition and weapons, but they are also recruiting people like this who will not hesitate to fire on the American citizen who refuses to go along with their heinous ways.

  • Kent2012

    It would appear that Jesus Christ is also on that “list”…….

  • 2iceblest

    I knew the persecution was coming, but it is still sad. The separation of wheat and tares is now. Christians are both considered evil, because the enemy hates God. Jews are hated because of Messiah and God said He would cause them to be despised in the nations. Stand firm and remember, ‘Vengeance and payback are mine for the time when their foot slips; for the day of their calamity is coming soon, their doom is rushing upon them.’ (Deut. 32:35). They’ll discover they were following the wrong ‘god’, just as everyone who follows the new world order. They are poor, deceived souls – or they are inherently evil – belonging to the the lineage of evil. Whichever it is, a daily read of the letters to the churches is warranted.

  • Charitable, concerned, helpful, donars of everything from food to blood, eager to show Christ’s love, Christians are the least likely terroriests and the most likely victims. Who but Satin and his minions could possibly be threatened by Christians?

  • sreynolds

    The bible says Christians will be persecuted. It is happening now in AMerica like it has happened globally for decades ( really centuries )

  • In the eyes of DHS and their lackeys, ALL Christians, who
    believe America was founded on Godly principles, or take the Bible
    literally, are “sovereign citizens”, who need to be watched by law enforcement
    as potentially aggressive toward law enforcement. THAT #$%%^@^ just
    completed the declaration of war upon the People and only for our beliefs, not
    our actions!

  • LibertyWriter

    Its funny how they can find a grain of truth from a pile of shit. I am a Christian and I am mad as hell.

    • Lib, you know that to their ideology, God is possibly their greatest enemy. Marx even emphasized that as long as people get to believe in God, the Collective will fail. As long as We The People allow these kinds of people to run our government, Christians are their enemies.
      We have had a long run unfettered by persecution here. It looks to have ended.
