What Does the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Need with 96 Armed Agents?
PJMedia.com ^ | 4/6/2014 | Rick Moran

Posted on 04/07/2014 5:51:39 AM PDT by rktman

The proliferation of federal agencies with armed agents is one of the most worrisome aspects of the growth in government. Just last summer the EPA carried out an armed raid on a mine in Alaska to enforce the Clean Water Act — a bit of government intimidation that residents say was totally unnecessary:

When they start worrying about whether they will go home at night is when they will rethink their protocols.

A really stupid question, Rick.

When push comes to shove (a day I pray will never happen) what will these “armed agents” do when ordered to shoot their fellow Americans?

Since they work for the gov’t, they’ll have to be considered to be “on the other side” when the shove comes.

It seems those in these agencies understand this. I hope everyone else does as well.

If you resist and refuse to fill in your illegal pond, I think they’ve already been authorized to 007 your non-compliant butt. They’ll PO the wrong guy before too long and we’ll end up with a Ruby Ridge over a pond. Real friggin’ nice huh?

Is there really even a question about whether they’ll follow orders like that?

All you have to do is label the fellow America as a anti-govt, drug dealer, weapons dealer, or spotted owl hater and they’ll go to town.

When they come after me, they better bring my duly elected County Sheriff with them...

Because otherwise they are nothing more than armed criminal trespassers.

Sadly, too many sheriffs don’t believe they are the #1 law enforcement officers in the county. Some place have even taken that authority away from them so they end up subservient to the feds.

Too bad not all sheriffs are as dedicated to protecting freedom as the one featured in Fox’s special, “Enemies of the State,” in which a Nevada sheriff told the BLM oppressors that their SWAT team would be met with his SWAT team. The BLM bullies were threatening to steal a rancher’s herd of cattle, the second time such a blatant act of government theft had occurred.

If you missed this special, you really should watch for it to be rebroadcasted, or find it on line. It will make you angry and afraid and hopefully, determined.

Mark Steyn also felt military bases were like other 'gun free' zones - schools but with uniforms...

Seems the new status symbol of government agencies is having their own little swat teams. It's so 'north korean'...so... thuggy.

The “indoctrinated” ones will shout in glee, shoot first and miss and then be hit by a barrage of gunfire from a source they can’t pinpoint, or go hom to thir homo lover at night and talk about how many “anarchists” (as the assifnments they revceived defined “them” they shot and the score and bonus points they received that will go towards their sugary food allowance quota...

You know this country is screwed up when the boys from NOAA and U.S. Wildlife have SWAT teams with assault weapons and the Border Patrol carries bean bag guns. I guess we know how this administration feels about Americans when compared to how they feel about illegal invaders.

My oldest daughter’s best friend from high school is an accountant and works for the IRS. Part of her job is to spend time on the shooting range. She shows up at audits in a suit, armed and wearing body armor.

That’s all I need to know about our government.

Oh, yeah. I forgot to mention that it sure wasn’t Washoe County nor Clark County in NV. Our sheriff is one of the two that supported the “babies get background checks law” last session.

Here’s a little bit of history. When Hitler’s SS were asked, after the war, why they did all those horrendous things, their answer? “WE WERE JUST OBEYING ORDERS”. And when these people in the “SWAT TEAM” are arrested, they will say the same thing. “WE WERE FOLLOWING ORDERS”. What we need to do is either do away with all these ALPHABET AGENCIES, or throw the DEPARTMENT HEADS in jail for going against the constitution. Or better yet, throw these people in congress for not stopping them. People, losing our rights doesn’t happen with one fell swoop. It comes a little bit at a time. Just like a “DRIP” of water doesn’t make a hole in a stone, but a constant dripping will eventually put a hole in the stone.

It won’t work next time either.

The Army can have guns (Ft. Hood shooting), but the weather people at NOAA can?
Our government is upside down.
