Coup in America? The arming of the DHS paramilitary

#1
Dear friends, the following is a copy of my correspondence with Senator Cornyn concerning the arming of the DHS for war against the citizens of our nation. You are each encouraged to copy and properly amend this letter to send to your own senators and members of the U.S. House. Further, I am somewhat overwhelmed at the response to my posts leading up to this letter on this issue. At this point almost 3,000 of you have shared my original post, I have 994 new friends requests, 61 messages, and 70 new comments to process. Please be patient with me and pray that this window of communication remains open to all of us as we respond to this threat against our Constitution and our people. I am awed by you, by your positive response, and your wonderful support. We each have a role to play in standing against this present tyranny. Part of that proper response is sending them a letter like this from YOU, and following it up to make sure it remains a "hot button" issue that must be resolved. God bless you as you honor your oaths and your obligations as citizens of this free nation. May we once again know honorable leadership and peace at home. With all sincerity and respect--Resolved, Captain Terry M. Hestilow, United States Army, Retired.

The Honorable Senator John Cornyn, State of Texas
United States Senate
517 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510

Re: Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and that agencies preparation for war against citizens of the United States of America.


Dear Senator Cornyn,

It is with gravest concern that I write to you today concerning the recent appropriation of weapons by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that can only be understood as a bold threat of war by that agency, and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America. To date, DHS has been unwilling to provide to you, the elected representatives of the People, justification for recent purchases of almost 3,000 mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) armored personnel carriers, 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition (with associated weapons), and other weapons systems, when, in fact, the DHS has no war mission or war making authority within the limits of the United States of America.

Significant is the fact that at the same time the Obama administration is arming his DHS for war within the limits of the United States against the People of the United States in accordance with his 2008 campaign speech claiming,

“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve gotta (sic) have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded [as the United States military]”--Candidate Barack Obama, 2008.

the Obama administration is deliberately defunding, overextending, and hollowing the Department of Defense; the only legitimate agency of the U.S. government with a war mission.

This act of the Obama administration stands as a glaring threat of war against our nation’s citizens! This act of the Obama administration can only be understood as a tyrannical threat against the Constitution of the United States of America! If left unresolved, the peace loving citizens who have sworn to defend the United States Constitution “against all enemies, both foreign and domestic” are left no option except to prepare to defend themselves, and the U.S. Constitution, against this Administration’s “coup” against the People and the foundations of liberty fought for and defended for the past 238 years. We have no choice if we honor our oaths.

The only proper response to this threat against the American people is for the representatives of the People, the members of the U.S. House and Senate, to demand in clear terms that the Administration cannot ignore, that the Department of Homeland Security immediately surrender their newly appropriated weapons of war to the Department of Defense (DoD). Further, since the DHS has assumed a position in the Administration to enforce the tyrannical acts of this president against the People of the United States against the limits of the United States Constitution, it remains for the United States Congress to exercise its limiting power in the balancing of powers established by our founding fathers, to disestablish and dissolve the DHS as soon as possible. One needs only to look to the rise of Adolf Hitler, and his associated DHS organizations, the SA and the SS, of 1932-1934, to see the outcome of allowing an agency of government this kind of control over the free citizens of a nation. The people of Germany could not have imagined, until it was too late, the danger of allowing a tyrant this kind of power. We must not be so naïve as to think it will not happen to us as well if we remain passive toward this power grab by the Marxist Obama administration!

Finally, for more than two centuries the nation has lived in peace at home because of the protections of our legitimate military and the many appropriate state and federal law enforcement agencies, supported by Constitutional courts. We stand today at a cross-road. Will we allow this present Administration to overthrow our United States Constitution and its legal processes to amend injustices, or, will we honor our obligations to defend the Constitution against a “domestic” enemy? Our Constitution lays out the proper methods of resolving our differences; and it does not include its overthrow by a rogue agency of a Marxist leadership at home. You, sir, are our constitutionally elected agent to defend our Constitution at home. We are counting upon you. We remain aware, however, of this present threat and will not expose ourselves as an easy prey to the authors of the destruction of our nation.

I know that this letter demands much of you. We elected you because we, the citizens of the State of Texas, believe that you are up to the task at hand and will, against all threats, honor your oath and office. We are also writing to your fellow members of the House and Senate to stand in integrity with the Constitution and against this present threat by the Obama administration and his DHS.

We refuse to surrender our Constitution or our nation!

Resolved,

This should be interesting. Apparently there are already 15 senators asking for explanations.
Others are asking too.

I can understand the fellas concern, And I do believe that a socialist takeover of the USA will end up in civil war.
But what do you guys think?
Also, If that unlikely scenario happened do you think we would help the US people fight against a tyrannical takeover?

Aside from the medium, how does this differ from a chain letter?

Americans are not particularly well educated, they are prone to become hysterical, believe in every and any conspiracy theory that comes along and see nothing wrong with repeatedly lying to advance their own brand of " batchit crazy".

They are a very very weird society.

I wouldn't blame the DHS if they purchased Abrams MBTs, if they have to go up against some of these, no doubt, well armed and ammo'd up paranoid ranters.

I assume you do not mean ALL Americans in your broadside.

For the record I have 2 post graduate degrees, am not prone to hysterics except perhaps when it involves criminal abuse of animals by "human" scumbags), do not see a conspiracy under every bush and to my knowledge do not lie. Nevertheless, I do believe there is legitimate cause for concern at the trajectory of our current Masters in amassing not only unprecedented centralized rule at the federal level but more ominously, military capabilities and equipment in federal civilian "security" agencies as well as for the first time in recent history assigning over 20,000 regular Army combat forces to "homeland security" missions.

It may well be that some of our detractors who use weasel words like "weird" to describe over 300 million people could benefit from more education (and less apparent reflexive bias) of the type you accuse us of lacking.

Yes, it is weird to be free, and not chattle, at least to some limited minds, more so to those with delusions of mesmerizing leadership ability, such as the Piper of (Brain) Damage...

I forgot to mention that they tend to have a collective nervous breakdown when they hear anything critical of America.

Btw someone who actually does bid on USA Gov tenders on another bbs pointed out that the purchase that is being quoted is actually an "option to buy" over a 5 year period and I think the numbers of various agencies that have need of ammunition for training is about a 100,000 people. So as usual half truths and partial facts are being twisted without any regard for honesty to back one side or the others point of view and political argument - in this case the underlying premise being that Obama, a black man and a communist/ socialist is going to destroy Anmerica through a civil war therefore go and buy as many guns as you can.

I marvel at your ability to speak for and about all 300 million + of us in such confident tones.

The developments that I have documented in other threads and to which I have alluded here by no means have caused me anything close to a nervous breakdown old chap but thanks for the concern. The only thing close to a nervous breakdown for me (I would not presume anything of a similar nature in your case as I do not know you as a person sufficiently to form such opinions unlike so many others on these hallowed fora who appear to have no qualms whatever in relegating massive swaths of humanity to the slag heap) occurs when I allow myself to think too much about my fallen comrades who served with and under me and abused and neglected animals whose loyalty and honesty put most humans to shame in the bitterest sense.

Nigh on 300 million yanks going to be controlled by 100,000 of them (the DHS them not our them). Who are these supermen who are trying to overthrow such a dense cluster of free thinkers. Where do they hang out? Do they have meetings to plan for the takeover (A shed at the docks is the usual place. filled with empty cardboard boxes and well lit is favorite). Have the military been informed or are they in on it?
As for 1.6 billion rounds. Pha! Arni,Bruce and Sly can get through that lot in a morning when righting wrongs is on the cards.
USA is big strong and clever I for one am glad of that and admire many septics for their individuality and independence but lets get one thing straight no one is trying to take over the country from within now that was done by the blokes who signed the declaration of independence and their descendents have been feeding Americas collective paranoia ever since.
Final thought it could be us trying to get you back; DHS = DHSS the most feared arm of UK government. It's a thought?

Who are chattle then AY?

The letters author somewhat undermines his argument by the use of the word 'Marxist', however I think questions should be asked and clarification sought. He has every right to ask a legitimate question, and receive an answer, because if the situation is as he describes (which I doubt), it seems to be against their Constitution.

Gee you'd think that with all the fuss that the septics prefer to have their gun toting federales to be poorly trained rather than well trained...which doesn't make much sense at all...
