Turning America into a Battlefield: A Blueprint for Locking Down the Nation

Via avordvet
In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.—President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961
A standing army—something that propelled the early colonists into revolution—strips the American people of any vestige of freedom. How can there be any semblance of freedom when there are tanks in the streets, military encampments in cities, Blackhawk helicopters and armed drones patrolling overhead?

It was for this reason that those who established America vested control of the military in a civilian government, with a civilian commander-in-chief. They did not want a military government, ruled by force. Rather, they opted for a republic bound by the rule of law: the U.S. Constitution.

Unfortunately, with the Constitution under constant attack, the military’s power, influence and authority have grown dramatically. Even the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, which makes it a crime for the government to use the military to carry out arrests, searches, seizure of evidence and other activities normally handled by a civilian police force, has been weakened by both Barack Obama and George W. Bush, who ushered in exemptions allowing troops to deploy domestically and arrest civilians in the wake of alleged terrorist acts.


  1. After I E-mailed you earlier I looked outside at the sound of Helo rotors. What I saw was a flat black HH-60G Pave Hawk with a big FULL COLOR, DHS insignia. The helo was equipped with a gun pod (right side) and a 66 MM rocket pod (left side) with the door gunners in place and armed. It was headed ESE at about 1000ft AGL. They really don't even try to hide it anymore do they?---Ray

    1. DHS needs to be disbanded, but don't see much hope for that, because "they are keeping us safe."

    2. Just for S&G I looked up the bird I saw. I was wrong in the ID. What I saw was a UH-60K gunship. It packs a heavier weapons, sensor and ammo load than the AH-64 gunship . It packs more firepower than any other Helo. in service in the world today . Its primary mission is to go in to combat ahead of Special Forces and kill EVERYTHING. The primary users are the 160th Special operations air wing -- and the DHS. Yeh buddy, I feel safer already knowing Homeland Security is flying the best armed rotary winged aircraft in history.

      Thanks and really..............

  2. Another two bites the dust. I guess they were noncompliant:
