For some time I’ve been concerned over the arsenal of war weapons and billions of rounds of ammunition being stockpiled by the Department of Homeland Security. I don’t trust Obama because of his propensity to cozy up to dictators and against efforts at establishing Democratic governments [See, The “Obama Doctrine” in foreign policy takes shape].
I remember this chilling statement of Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign:
“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve gotta (sic) have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded [as the United States military]”–Candidate Barack Obama, 2008.
Obama seems to be emasculating our military at the same time he is building up a domestic war machine that could be used against the American people. I’ve been reluctant to write about it for fear of being thought a conspiracy theorist. But now retired Army Captain Terry M. Hestilow has written a letter to Texas Senator John Cornyn that starts this way:
Dear Senator Cornyn,
It is with gravest concern that I write to you today concerning the recent appropriation of weapons by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that can only be understood as a bold threat of war by that agency, and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America. To date, DHS has been unwilling to provide to you, the elected representatives of the People, justification for recent purchases of almost 3,000 mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) armored personnel carriers, 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition (with associated weapons), and other weapons systems, when, in fact, the DHS has no war mission or war making authority within the limits of the United States of America.
This act of the Obama administration stands as a glaring threat of war against our nation’s citizens! This act of the Obama administration can only be understood as a tyrannical threat against the Constitution of the United States of America! If left unresolved, the peace loving citizens who have sworn to defend the United States Constitution “against all enemies, both foreign and domestic” are left no option except to prepare to defend themselves, and the U.S. Constitution, against this Administration’s “coup” against the People and the foundations of liberty fought for and defended for the past 238 years. We have no choice if we honor our oaths.
The only proper response to this threat against the American people is for the representatives of the People, the members of the U.S. House and Senate, to demand in clear terms that the Administration cannot ignore, that the Department of Homeland Security immediately surrender their newly appropriated weapons of war to the Department of Defense (DoD).
Gun control for Obama. Seems like a great idea. Read the whole thing at Gateway Pundit.
