Posted on 08/17/2013 7:26:01 AM PDT by NKP_Vet
A former member of the United States Marine Corps on Monday night voiced his serious concerns about the U.S. building a domestic Army during a local city council meeting in Concord, N.H. In his impassioned testimony, the retired Marine said he believes that the recent push for local police forces to bulk up on military-grade equipment is disturbing and represents a very real threat to Americans.

Recall the Boston Marathon incident?
Armored vehicles, warrant less searches, shelter in place?
The pink hoodie is a nice touch.
9 agents and surveillance photos to kill a 35 pound baby deer.
A free rape pass for the federal sodomic police.
Mark my words, the TSA was just a start. Get your daughters ready to greet them at the door.
The more disgusting looking the bastard, the more pleasurable for the bastards of the media with basically their IRS TVs in our homes.
His last words were something to the effect that “there’s always free cheese in a mouse trap.”
Prophetic and entirely apropos to our entitlement leeches and those among us that thing ‘government will help us.”’
“We also heard from Carla Gericke, the President of the Free State Project. She describes her group as, a peaceful movement to concentrate 20,000 liberty lovers in New Hampshire. According to Gericke, her group was also cited as a domestic terror threat by the Concord city councils petition for a grant to purchase the $258,000 Leno BearCat vehicle pictured above. You can see the mention of Free Staters in Section 1, paragraph B of the application.”
You're right on this - there's high level strategic thinking behind a lot of this - stuff waaaay beyond Obama's pay grade.
Boston bombing search pretty well told us about that “army”. They sure as hell weren’t protecting us. And have no doubt....that was all via Obama’s orders.
"theres always free cheese in the mousetrap."
Obamas speech in Colorado - “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that weve set. Weve got to have a civilian national security force thats just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
Cue in the Black Panthers, out on patrol at election locations everywhere in the more populous regions of the country. Obama would need just such a separate “security forced” because the concept of Posse Comitatus forbids the use of the U.S. military to enforce laws within the nation.
Dream no small dreams. Now, more than ever, we NEED “Stand your ground” and “Castle doctrine” laws. And what is under attack at every quarter?
This is no joke, areas which before were reserved for the national guard, or state militias, are now the province of the local Barney Fifes of the world. Armored vehicles, machine guns, night surveillance equipment, and drones which are more adept for a battlefield are being employed in the US now. In fact with this type of equipment, one would think chicago would have been socialized long ago but alas it is not because this equipment is finding its way into areas which do not need it. This is part of the suppression of rights which this administration is keen upon. First amendment, ha; second amendment, what was that, fourth amendment, we search what we want, fifth, take the fifth and we now use that in court against you, sixth, trial when we say so, and tenth, what are states anyway but vessels holding disloyal subjects on our land.
I saw one of those vehicles pictured at the link being transported on I-30 last month, heading South toward DFW.

The part I liked was how ONE citizen that would not Comply is the one that got Johkar.
I was just thinking about that. The State Police should be the lowest level of domestic army with SWAT teams and vehicles.
We have dual local SWAT Teams; City Peoples' Republic and County. I've seen them working out at the local park, having arrived in their SWAT vehicle. I Think I'm in better shape than the average local SWAT participant and I'm just an OWG walking my dog. They also had an exercise I observed where they were practicing "taking" a School Bus and a City Transit bus.
It's good to be prepared, but the US citizens are the ones who need to work on preparation for the oncoming Police State.
That is odd.
“I was just thinking about that. The State Police should be the lowest level of domestic army with SWAT teams and vehicles.”
That guy was pretty brave to go over and lift that tarp. No way would I have done that.
That applies to a whole lot of programs.
And it may very well be our last words too.
You also had the Obama WH targeting whites and gun owners, the CPUSA said it was time for illegals to take the fight to the streets, and Eric Holder said blacks were spending too much time in prison for crimes they were committing.
It was set up to make it appear as if militants from any one of the three, white gun owners, illegals, or blacks could be the ones behind the violence.
All he wanted was the freedom to have a smoke in his backyard.
That man should be a national Hero, and Obama with his brown shirts should be given the hook.
Way to keep that chin up. /s
It won’t be the Military Police, My FRiend. It will be your local police and sheriff’s deputies.
Oh, and to all you Jarheads, I like the way you think.
“Recall the Boston Marathon incident? Armored vehicles, warrant less searches, shelter in place?”
I watched that as it happened and was amazed at the military type vehicles and totally decked out military style clothing on those men - that was an army for sure. In fact, on the back of some men I saw “US Army Police” on the clothing. I wondered why those actual military men were there. But, the whole group of those men with “assault rifles” were going down empty streets and making people leave their houses at the point of a rifle.
I thought that is what it will look like when Hussein takes over the country. The people filed out of their houses without any resistance. Will we all do that? Most of the time there were four of the men going to a house. Four armed men at your door - what do you do?
It is probably wise to meet and greet those local authority’s.
Find out what makes em tick.
Unless Obama creates an extensive federal police force (Gestapo) throughout the land, how will the federal government be able to enforce payment of its over-the-top ObamaCare fees, which millions of Americans won’t be able to afford?
Local police forces are already overwhelmed; in cities like Detroit it takes almost an hour for 911 emergencies to be responded to. Unless the federal government can enlist millions of Americans into a new Gestapo and it can build thousands of new federal prisons to house ObamaCare tax evaders, it’s hard to see how ObamaCare will be able to survive.
What stunned me was how it was ready to roll on the public and how willing the public was to embrace it.
Hell! They applauded it.
I agree. The question is, can, or will it be reversed? Will it take 70 some years, like it did in Russia? I don't think this dictatorship is going away anytime soon. I think it will get worse before it gets better, and I don't even think the Republicans are the loyal opposition any more. They are part of the problem too.
Read the article in the Blaze link—excellent and so true. Our government is creating a domestic army by equipping the police and local feds with military weapons and training. They are being desensitized to be able to shoot their fellow Americans on command. The war on drugs and war on terror is going to end up on the war on anyone who says our government has departed from that established by our Constitution.
They will be. It will take a while for the cheese to run out. But it will run out.
For all the applause the Paramilitary received while stomping all over the public, it was one solitary citizen that would not comply who got Johkar.
All the Kings horses and all the Kings men could not foresee those Tsarneav boys even with ample warning from the Russians, but boy were they Jimmy on the spot to shut down Americans rights and take credit for saving us from our fears.
Well we will see how that goes. I know a lot of cops and all of them can’t stand this Kenyan SOB, so if he starts trying to Nazi-fy them, I doubt they would go along with it.
“What stunned me was how it was ready to roll on the public and how willing the public was to embrace it.”
Yes, it was a large number of the military types almost instantly there with armored personnel carriers. As far as the reaction of the people being so compliant - I came to the conclusion that people who live in Boston are liberal and have no weapons, don’t know about weapons, and follow orders due to their ignorance of interpreting what it means to leave your house at the point of a rifle with your arms up in the air.
After they were out of their houses, the military types entered the houses to search. There were no search warrants, yet they searched. I don’t want any law enforcement types in my house to search my house. My preps are in my house and they would find them. My self defense items would be found. I have nothing illegal but I don’t want anyone going through my house.
My house and my garden is my country and I am President for Life of my country. I own it free and clear, and as President, I decide who comes into my country.
What I want to know, is how with all of that force and intel they could not stop these rather obvious and overt Tsarnaev brothers, and how their display of jackboot martial law was supposed to make us feel safe.
Now people seem satisfied that the NSA is listening to everything everyone says.
But I will repeat.... They missed The Tsarnaevs and we feel secure that the same jackhats are stomping on us.
It’s mind boggling.
You are onto something, but most of these paramilitary had to be neighbors, you know your neighbors. Does Boston?
In 2016 I doubt there will be an election...either fair or fraudulent. The citizen army will be in place to put down protests.
“Unless Obama creates an extensive federal police force (Gestapo) throughout the land, how will the federal government be able to enforce payment of its over-the-top ObamaCare fees, which millions of Americans wont be able to afford? . . .”
It’s my understanding the IRS will have direct access to people’s bank accounts. Ultimately of course it’s not about universal health care, it’s about control. Less privacy, rights and freedoms for the people, more power to the overlords who desire to play God.
Militarizing local and state law enforcement and the federal "alphabet" agencies (ie: BATFE, FBI, DHS, IRS), is the technique liberals and RINO Nanny-Stater politicians have devised as a way to circumvent the Posse Comitatus Act.
The federal government "assists" local law enforcement by providing military style training, equipment, communications, etc. Then, when the feds step in, as the ATF did at Waco, those assets are available for use as directed by the feds but they can operate under the pretense that it is a non-military or civilian operation.
Military Armor Used At The Branch Davidian Compound Near Waco
- M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank (one in this photo but two reported on site)
- M88 Armored Recovery Vehicle (one shown in photo)
- Bradley Fighting Vehicles (2 shown in photo)
- M728 Combat Engineer's Vehicle (5 reported on site, none shown in photo)
The M728 is a modified M60 Main Battle Tank with a snub-nosed 165mm gun.
Some, as those reported in use at WACO, are equipped with flame-throwers
“Its my understanding the IRS will have direct access to peoples bank accounts.”
They have had that power for many years. If you don’t pay your taxes, they can already take it out of your bank account. Years ago, I worked briefly for a few months at a cable company and unknowing to me, they had a retirement system. When we did our taxes, I did an IRA contribution. Later, we got a letter from the IRS that I couldn’t do that IRA contribution because I worked for a company that had a retirement benefit. They were going to take money out of our account to pay the taxes we owed due to their refusing the IRA contribution.
My husband sent them a check and told them they had better not take it out of our bank account. If he hadn’t sent the check, they would have taken it out of our account.
Our own version of Hitler’s SS????????????
One scary part is that they will be familiar with local geography and conditions. That is better suited to urban warfare. Perhaps that is the point.
