DHS Purchaes 2700 Light Armored Tanks

In the middle of a budget crisis no less. What does DHS want with armored mine-resistant vehicles. I thought Obama said weapons of war had no place on America’s streets?
Homeland Security Purchases 2,700 Light-Armored Tanks – What For?

Poor Janet Napolitano. All she wanted was to have the budget cuts halted so that we could be protected from the terrorists, but the Republicans decided to hold America hostage by not agreeing to stop the austerity measures.
Then, she had no choice but to let 10,000 illegal aliens go because DHS couldn’t afford to house them any longer. With the budget cuts, it was so unaffordable to house them that DHS has had to build new detention facilities costing millions of dollars.

And now, Napolitano has had to announce that because of the budget cuts, airports all over the country are now being delayed. Even Los Angeles International and O’Hare International in Chicago. Granted, the Associated Press reported that these big city airports routinely suffer delays, and a quick look at the FAA’s flight delay information shows everything to be normal, but I’m sure it’s different in this “post-sequestration” world. There’s only so much they can do with so little money.
The Department of Homeland Security is so broke that they’ve had to purchase only 2,700 light-armored tanks to add to their collection of 1.6 billion rounds of .40 caliber and 9mm bullets, including hollow-point ammo for sniper rifles. These 15-ton tanks, complete with gun ports on the side, will be used to patrol U.S. streets in order to keep us safe from the terrorists and Osama bin Laden’s ghost. They’d be able to buy more of these I’m sure if it weren’t for the sequester cuts.

US Citizens Have No Right to a Trial if Suspected of Terrorism

Holder: Yep, Obama could kill Americans on U.S. soil | The Ticket – Yahoo! News

President Barack Obama has the legal authority to unleash deadly force—such as drone strikes—against Americans on U.S. soil without first putting them on trial, Attorney General Eric Holder wrote in a letter released Tuesday.

 

We have been waiting and now we have the answer. My only question is why did it take so long for Eric Holder to answer the question. Obama can target Americans on US soil, not on a battlefield, on the belief that they are terrorists. Makes you sort of cringe considering the last fiasco about trying to label returning vets, pro-lifers, and Evangelical Christians as terrorists.

Gold Confiscation on the Horizon or Just Another Money Making Scheme?

A bill that would require regisration of all gold & silver dealers and mandating records of purchasers is now working its way through the Illinois legislature. Is this an attempt for more revenue through fines and fees or is something more sinister afoot. (see ‘gold confiscation act of 1933‘). I am really not suprised to see this coming out of Illinois, a state that is ruled by Chicago – one of the most corrupt cities in America.

Pregnant Women And Little Boys As Shooting Targets? Ah Yes, Leave It To DHS… – Chicks on the Right

Law Enforcement Targets, Inc., a provider of shooting targets to the Department of Homeland Security, has admitted that targets depicting pregnant women were “requested” by law enforcement agencies.

Come to find out these targets were developed by the company using a grant from the DHS. Now I can see local law enforcement getting some use out of these where they raid a meth lab and have all kinds of people shooting back at them. The line of targets is conveniently title “No More Hesitation”. You can find the full line here. Update: I believe they took the targets down for general viewing. You can find a screenshot of the website here.

This is how our government sees us. Obama called the oposition party “the enemy”. Be careful of your governements language because it sets precident. You must be careful what the controling party does, especially if they are on your side. With every action you need to ask yourself, “how would this make me feel or apply if the opposite party were in power”.
