More and more there are occurrences in our country I never thought I would ever witness; no, not in the land of the free! I have known through the years that certain radical groups like the white supremacy people and even Islamist extremist factions were secretly meeting and training, but I never would imagine in a million years that one of those forces would be our own government!
I came upon the following in the Drudge Report (11-5-13) that certainly caught my eye:
“The Department of Homeland Security is to spend $19 million dollars on a private security force in Wisconsin and Minnesota; an armed unit that must have a “Top Secret” security clearance according to an official solicitation. The fact that the contractors being hired must have a “Top Secret” security clearance clearly suggests that the DHS is not merely seeking to hire armed guards, but Blackwater-style mercenaries who will be engaged in some kind of clandestine activity.
“The notion of an armed security force operating domestically under a “Top Secret” designation, something normally reserved for foreign spying and military operations, underscores how the DHS increasingly treats America like some kind of occupied territory. The hiring of private mercenaries with Top Secret clearances also suggests the DHS may be planning on using the contractors as cutouts who will be involved in a variety of different operations outside the purview of public and Congressional scrutiny.”
“For some, the idea of an ever-expanding federal government turning to a private security force with a “Top Secret” clearance will stir memories of Barack Obama’s pre-election promise to build “a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, and just as well-funded as the US military.”
What in the world is going on? I hope there is an acceptable explanation for all this secrecy and clandestine activity within our own borders. This is taking place in the Minnesota and Wisconsin woodlands, not on a military base or some far away island. I knew about the ammunition but I didn’t know about the mercenaries.
I have been watching the President during recent news clips and noticed something I have not witnessed before. I cannot judge a man’s heart but I can notice his countenance and there has been an obvious change. It could be because of the deception revealed behind the passage of Obama Care but nevertheless, he is not the same man he was during his first term. He is doubling down in defense of his deception and his determination to turn us into a socialist state.
Our Federal Government is grabbing more and more power and authority than I would have ever predicted and they are getting away with it. Former presidential candidate, Ron Paul has suggested that we are sliding toward a “totalitarian state.” Just what does that look like? Some television commentators have referred to this administration as a “regime.”
The following are characteristics of a totalitarian state:
- The regime must be a one party state.
- The regime must use terror as a political tool.
- The leader must have total control over his subordinates, through political and extra-political means (meaning that they must use fear even on close allies).
- The regime must control nearly all aspects of the economy.
- The regime must try to control all aspects of human relations, from trade unions and politics to social groups, education and even marriage and youth.
We may not be there yet, but are we, as Con. Paul suggests, “sliding in that direction?” There are goals this administration has that are indeed “socialist” in nature. Could it be that the goals are to control every aspect of peoples’ lives and have little individual freedom? Totalitarian governments are often believed to be a solution to political or economic problems in a country. We are experiencing both! Totalitarianism is mostly about political power, but it is also the desire to control all aspects of life, not just the political sphere. Oh, by the way, the Drudge Report also reported that the “Dep. Of Homeland Security (DHS) recently purchased 1.6 million rounds of high powered ammunition, half a million dollars worth of fully automatic pepper spray launchers and projectiles that are designed to be used during riot control situations.”
Could someone be expecting trouble? Me thinks so!
