In November 2011, she recounted her concerns. She explained threats from "so-called radio 'shock jock,' Hal Turner." The FBI bankrolled him. In 2006, he announced on air "that I should be lynched on my way to vote."

In 2009, McKinney learned of his FBI connection. "Sadly," she said, "Capitol Hill Police did nothing" to protect her "even after a direct threat" on her life. Perhaps the FBI incited it. 

"My story is that I struggled in the Congress with mean-spirited threats all of the time." She faced "(n)asty name calling, racial slurs, even stalking and bomb threats."

She handled it courageously. Her activism remains undeterred. Her political activities continue. She opposes Obama's imperial wars. 

She's outspoken against homeland injustice. She knows its potential firsthand. Federal agents sworn to serve and protect, in fact, are menacing. They stalk, target and terrorize.

Mueller now wants more power. He asked Congress for legislative authority to target America's vulnerable more effectively. 

Everyone's at risk, especially activists challenging policies ravaging humanity at home and abroad. Political Washington, Mueller, and others around them support wealth and power. 

Ordinary people are trampled so they benefit. Changing what's intolerable is top priority. Imagine what's possible if attained. Imagine the protracted nightmare otherwise. Sustained activism for change can prevent it.
