Skip to comments.Americans don't trust Homeland Security or its mission

Even though the 2013 Rand McNally road atlas does not identify any town named Glynco, Ga, this sprawling 1,600 acre campus with its own zip code-31524- is the locus for extensive Department of Homeland Security (DHS) expansion. Plans are currently under way to build and expand facilities at Glynco to conduct a wide array of programs to support the Homeland Security mission.(1)
Located in the midst of numerous senior citizen and retirement communities, the center is in Golden Isles, a series of barrier islands noted for their recreation and retirement living atmospheres according to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center description of the area. (1)
This Training Center is listed on page 1 of a recent, enormous, $1.6 billion DHS ammo buy which included...

When this Homeland Security Department came along I thought it was a good thing. Man, what I an idiot I was. The government sucked me in big time. I thought that the agency was going to be involved with the security of the nation. I guess it was the name that faked me out.
Nor should they. America died with passage of the Patriot Act.
Great location. Now we can spend extra to hurricane proof it.
How can DHS be other than the fist of the tyrant when Islamists have been appointed to top positions?
I’ve spent quite a bit of time at GLYNCO.....usually had fun at night when I wasn’t in some class.....LOL
It is a high level girl party, right?
The Department of Homeland Security, with it’s creepy nazi sounding name. Has twice the budget of, and the same number of people as the US Marine Corps. And it’s aimed squarely at us.
One has to remember that many of the entities within DHS are legacy agencies that were taken from other departments and placed in DHS. Coast Guard, Border Patrol, U.S. Customs, INS, and the Secret Service were all taken out of their respective departments and placed under the new bureaucracy and then they tossed in the newly created TSA.
And DHS as protection from islamic attacks is a laugh. The Borders are wide open. Islamists are permeating our government. Bush loved them. Hillary has an MB connected chick at her side 24/7. Grover Norquist loves them. We see soldir forbidden from criticizing the Taliban enemy or their favorite hobby, pedophilia. We see the FBI scrubbing all terror training materials of any references to islam.
The borders are wide open.
We supply weaspons to the Mexican cartels, the Libyan branch of Al Qeida, the Syrian Al Qeida, etc.
We are flooding the nation with every variety of moslem we can. Pakistani, Somali, Iraqi, Afghan, Egyptian, Yemeni, etc.
It’s a fair conclusion that the last thing the US government wants is to stop islamic attacks.
This raises the question. What is DHS actually for?
We should have known. The government providing something they tell is for our OWN GOOD, has a history of being the opposite.
I guess it was the name that faked me out.
They should have been honest and called it THE FINGER.
There is a Homeland Security base somewhere near the northern boundary of the Willapa Hills in southwest Washington State.
Black helicopters fly right over my house when traveling between Portland, Oregon, and that base.
One night a group of them flew over and had searchlights on, raking the ground. It was 10:30 at night and over a residential neighborhood - crass and totally unnecessary behavior.
For now, these purchases only compete for supply.
There’s no staff available to use this quantity of ammo.
They could double the military and police in this country and remain “uncompetative” with free Americans.
Keep in mind that less than half the military are proficient with firearms.
Is there some thought that by making jobs so hard to find that at some point folks will see signing up for a DHS brown-shirt squad, to oppress fellow Americans, as a viable career?
I’ve also just recently woken up. I supported President Bush, the Patriot Act, DHS, etc... I thought they were supposed to help keep me safe and free. Little did I know the true mission was to strip me of my freedom and make me live in an Orwellian surveillance state. The Democrats and Republicans have been bought and paid for, and their masters demanded that the Constitution be shredded. Its done. Now we have to live with the monster we unleashed.
If it will be a bad thing under Democrat control then it’s not a good thing because it was implemented under Republican control.
This is a lesson that Republicans have refused to learn. Blame Democrats for being what they are and you won’t be wrong, but Republicans handed them the keys.
DHS was proposed, funded, established and expanded under George W. Bush and the vast majority here on FR cheered. Only the few remaining paleoconservatives and libertarians were alarmed and spoke out. They were shouted down.
And so, here we are. Feel safe yet?
That’s exactly the way I feel.
It is. Against you.
It is. Against you.
It took the D of C over 200 years to create an agency to defend the borders? That was their original job.
Homeland gave me the creeps from day one. They never protected any borders.
Instead they geared up to protect the bureaucrats from we the people or they geared up to make war on we the people.
Just like the TSA and every other agency since 2000
It is past time for there to be a specific citizens lobbying group with a simple mission: That there are several federal government agencies that have no legitimate need to exist, so should be abolished.
The argument this lobbying organization makes does not need to be fiery or aggressive in any way, just the clear statement that these agencies serve no needed purpose, and are extremely expensive, so government should no longer pretend they have purpose, and despite the inertia of their great bulk, should end funding for them. Buh-bye.
No anger, or threats, or rage. The US was a better place without them, and there is no reason to keep them going, as their missions are either redundant with other agencies, or are intrusive and oppressive without tangible purpose or objective; so they should be dismissed, and the money not spent on other things that are equally unneeded.
These agencies are as superfluous as the industries subsidized by the administration who never achieved what they were supposed to do.
The TSA is as meaningless as A123 Systems or Solyndra. We are no longer subsidizing those, just writing off the investment. The same calm objectivity should apply to the TSA.
Those who supported it were not bad people, they just misjudged America’s security needs and created a bureaucracy that serves to good purpose. So it should be packed in boxes, recycled if possible to more useful purpose, but it is too expensive to keep pumping money into.
Likewise, those who wish them abolished are also not bad people, and do not deserve scrutiny, threats or punishment for demanding efficiency and at least a modicum of careful spending by the federal government.
Admit the mistakes, and stop funding them. It’s not so hard.
It is going to be an ongoing challenge.
