      A 2014 study funded by the Department of Homeland Security found that law enforcement considers domestic right-wing groups as two of the top three greatest terrorist threats to America. Nestled within our own borders, these citizens—many of whom are highly trained veterans—are on a mission to protect and defend the rights of the Constitution as they see them.

      After President Obama's election, the number of these organizations skyrocketed by more than 800 percent, reaching an all-time high in 2012 with over 1,300 groups. In an effort to understand this phenomenon better, VICE sent Gianna Toboni to investigate the so-called patriots who are training and taking up arms along the border.

      In the second segment of this episode, Isobel Yeung traveled to the Mozambique Channel and the Gulf of Mexico to get an idea of how much we've overfished our oceans and what—if anything—the world can do to save them.
