The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia,
in certain conspiracy circles it's running wild.
One theory about the origin of the superstition for Friday the 13th traces the event to the arrest of the legendary Knights Templar.
The Knights Templar were a monastic military order founded in Jerusalem in 1118,
whose mission was to protect Christian pilgrims during the Crusades.
Over the next two centuries, the Knights Templar became extraordinarily powerful and wealthy.
Threatened by that power and eager to acquire their wealth,
King Philip secretly ordered the mass arrest of all the Knights Templar in
France on Friday, October 13, 1307 - Friday the 13th.
Is history about to be repeated?
We have been sent an e-mail warning from what we can only term as a "conspiracy theorist",
who warns that the Grand High Sheikh has issued orders to federal law enforcement agencies,
that the arrest and detention of those who are on the "RED LIST" will commence on 02/13/09 or Friday the 13th if you prefer.
Anyone who knows myself or our organization, knows that we are not big fans of dates.
We are also not fans of those who make prediction after false prediction of round-ups and arrests.
Yes, the framework is in place for such a thing to happen, but the coordination and manpower for such an event is lacking.
A simultaneous nationwide round-up of Patriots and Militia Members is beyond the
current abilities of federal law enforcement agencies.
If the Meccachurian can implement his planned "Civilian National Security Force",
this limitation would be eliminated.
The Meccachurian would love to round-up all those that he considers a threat to
his leftist agenda,
but with coast to coast communication abilities of some groups,
infiltration of some federal agencies by Militia members and the fact that many
in government service are supportive of some groups.
The chance of groups notifying each other of a a nationwide operation is near 100%.
What we have been warning of is happening now.
More "surreptitious surveillance" is occurring to individuals from the reports we are getting.
We have even seen our own Internet traffic being re-routed through a central
location for packet-sniffing analysis.
What drives the Meccachurian crazy, is that he can do nothing about those that
have banded together in lawful organizations.
Expect to see people falsely accused of crimes they didn't commit.
The mainstream media will portray these individuals and groups as dangerous
"domestic terrorists" and a threat to society.
The witch hunts will happen when all the dominoes are set up.
Don't put faith in dates or paranoia.
Be aware of these concepts, but don't blindly follow them.
There is usually a feint trace of the truth, even in the most craziest of rumors.
Research what information is available and use common sense.
