Posted on 06/17/2016 5:52:00 AM PDT by RightGeek
Special agents at the IRS equipped with AR-15 military-style rifles? Health and Human Services Special Office of Inspector General Agents being trained by the Armys Special Forces contractors? The Department of Veterans Affairs arming 3,700 employees?
The number of non-Defense Department federal officers authorized to make arrests and carry firearms (200,000) now exceeds the number of U.S. Marines (182,000). In its escalating arms and ammo stockpiling, this federal arms race is unlike anything in history. Over the last 20 years, the number of these federal officers with arrest-and-firearm authority has nearly tripled to over 200,000 today, from 74,500 in 1996.
What exactly is the Obama administration up to?
On Friday, June 17, our organization, American Transparency, is releasing its OpenTheBooks.com oversight report on the militarization of America. The report catalogs federal purchases of guns, ammunition and military-style equipment by seemingly bureaucratic federal agencies. During a nine-year period through 2014, we found, 67 agencies unaffiliated with the Department of Defense spent $1.48 billion on guns and ammo. Of that total, $335.1 million was spent by agencies traditionally viewed as regulatory or administrative, such as the Smithsonian Institution and the U.S. Mint.

As Taxation is Theft, Revenuers need to have a credible threat of force behind them.
The Department of Education has a SWAT team, the Library of Congress has a SWAT team...
it’s like they’re all a fraternity playing around with BB guns and someone is going to get there I put out.
He's already said what he's up to. He did it even while he was running for Dictator the first time. "A civilian force as equally well funded, armed and capable as the MIlitary......." [paraphrased, but accurate]
He's picked the absolute WORST of this government's civilian lackey force and armed and authorized them. Ideologically, they are the King's Guards. We called them something different back in WWII era: Gestapo and SS.
Even in Rome they had a "Praetorian Guard". Nothing new, just dictators insuring their surviveability.
We need to start disarming Feds who have no business being armed. If the IRS, BLM (either the land grabbers or the racists with those initials), Agriculture’s (and Education’s, and Energy’s, and HUD’s, and Labor’s, and the VA’s, and NASA’s, and USAID’s) Office of the Inspector General, Commerce, NOAA, FDA, NIH, Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement, and NHTSA’s Office of Odometer Fraud Investigation need someone armed, they should call the FBI or 9-1-1, just like everyone else.
We need more armed citizens and fewer armed federal agents, other than genuine law enforcement and military. And the military should be permitted to carry weapons on base/post.
Obama’s civilian army
Have the number of armed park rangers and social security employees yet exceeded the U.S. marines? Are they packing hollow points?
IRS will be part of “the greatconfiscation attempt”.
The library of Congress has a SWAT team? Man, whatever happened to the good old days of overdue notices and library fines?
LOL, nobody would pay them if they din't.
As does the EPA
That puddle in your backyard is federally protected water, son- step away slowly with your hands up
“We need a civilian security force, just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded..” — Barack Obama, just before being installed as President.
National archives. Armed to prevent the threat of the theft of Washington’s wooden teeth?
prolly need to be armed to collect premiums from those pesky obama care deadbeats.
“The library of Congress has a SWAT team?
As does the EPA”
Don’t forget NOAA
If we really want to change the status quo we have to eliminate all current office holders.
Term limits would be the preferred method.
Al Capone wasn’t taken down by the FBI for murder or bank robbing, etc., the IRS took him down for tax evasion.
