Posted on 07/01/2014 10:25:47 AM PDT by John Semmens
A pre-dawn raid of a Florida home was characterized as a routine training exercise by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.
The raid took place on June 10 when a dozen heavily armed Department of Homeland Security troops broke into Kari Edwards home and held her and her live-in boyfriend at gun point while they searched the premises. The invading DHS officers disabled the homes security cameras as they thoroughly trashed the premises.
I realize that from Ms. Edwards perspective the incident may have been harrowing, Johnson acknowledged. But we mustnt lose sight of the big picture. Inflicting momentary fear and indignities on a few individuals is a small price for the nation to pay in our quest to combat potential threats to the government.
The notion that we need evidence that someone has done something wrong before we can take the steps necessary to protect against possible threats confuses judicial processes with those required to ensure security, Johnson continued. The goal is not to punish the guilty, but to neutralize our enemies in the most efficient way we can. Besides, even if we want to consider the judicial angle, it seems to me that a surprise raid might be the most effective way to obtain evidence of wrongdoing.

John Semmens satire today, DNC party plank and headline tomorrow.
I sure wish the producer of these articles would mark them better that they are indeed “semi-news/semi-satire.”
I started reading this, as I have with many others, with my jaw heading rapidly for the floor, before hitting the part about “s-n/s-s.”
If my doctor tells me I have high blood pressure, or other signs of stress, I am going to blame these articles!
(Okay, that last WAS satire!)
I know this is satire but the truth is they are training for what’s coming.
...as are we...
