The Bundy Ranch showdown has once again raised the issue the proliferation of SWAT teams and militarized response forces proliferating throughout the federal government, and the spread of military-style units to local governments. It is almost as if the state is arming itself to suppress the citizenry. John Fund at NRO has an excellent piece on the subject, The United States of Swat:

Well, based on my personal experience and observations, I’d say BOTH the foreign and domestic enemies of this country are confined within an area contained within 68.2 square miles and located west of the Potomac River.
Oops! My bad.....EAST of the Potomac River!
That is not a true statement.
It is not "almost" as if the state is arming itself to suppress the citizenry.
That is EXACTLY what is taking place.
"The proliferation of paramilitary federal SWAT teams inevitably brings abuses that have nothing to do with either drugs or terrorism. Many of the raids they conduct are against harmless, often innocent, Americans who typically are accused of non-violent civil or administrative violations."
"In the Second World War, when the Japanese took Singapore and inflicted what Churchill called the most ignominious defeat in British military history, it was famously said of the colony's ill-prepared defenses that the guns were pointing the wrong way."
In America today, the guns seem to be pointing the wrong way."
Yes 535 Domestic terrorists. :-)
The Security State is not to protect US, it’s to protect THEM.
I know it’s not totally related but I am still wondering where this Nikola fella that made the Innocence of Muslims YouTube movie is? He is UNPERSON. How could it possibly be that not a single media source in all the world is capable of asking this simple question? Is he down the memory hole forever?
He served time for something(parole violation or something) after the video brewhaha so the hildebeast can claim she took care of the guy responsible for the Benghazi kerfuffle. See, she did what she said and now she’s gonna be the nana for the first “royal” baby since the kennedy clan. Wonderful huh?
1. “We should get it JUST IN CASE...”
2. “Hey, we have this fancy stuff, might as well USE it, right..?”
So like a turd in a punch-bowl, it goes round and round like that, and pretty soon you have scowling RoboCops in dark glases and Tac-vests who hate the people they’re protecting.
And the people hate them, too.
