Another Retired General, an outstanding one, whose book we read, has made a statement about the DHS and their stockpile of ammo.
The six minutes recorded by Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, retired, warns that America is well along the pathway that other societies have used to bludgeon and beat their populations into submission to socialism. Even to the point of establishing a “constabulary force” to control the people.
Boykin now is executive vice president of Family Research Council. But during his military career, he was one of the original members of the U.S. Army’s Delta Force. He ultimately commanded those elite warriors in combat operations. Later, Boykin commanded all the Army’s Green Berets as well as the Special Warfare Center and School.
In all, Lt. Gen. Boykin spent 36 years in the army, serving his last four years as the Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence.
On the video, Boykin explains simply that he knows the standard process for creating a socialist or Marxist state because he studied it as a military officer.
His concern is that the six steps “done in every Marxist insurgency” now “are being done in America today.” He lists them: 1. nationalize major sections of the economy (the corporate bailouts), 2. redistribute wealth (the man appointed to head Medicare said health care is “nothing but a redistribution of wealth”), 3. discredit opposition (Boykin said he’s “never been so angry” as when the Obama administration called returning vets, pro-lifers and others a terror threat), 4. censorship (since old guard media already was in line, Obama’s censorship has been through “hate crimes” legislation aimed at Christian pastors and others), 5. gun control (see Washington’s present agenda), and 6. a constabulary force.
That would be “a force that can control the population,” Boykin warned.
To those who say that isn’t present in the U.S., he responds, “Let me remind you that prior to the election (in 2008) the president stood up and said if elected he would want a national civilian security force as large as and well-funded as the military.”
“Hitler had the brown shirts,” Boykin said.
He said while people may not think it’s happening, such a force already is in the law – of Obamacare.
“There are paragraphs that talk about the commissioning of officers in time of national crisis to work directly for the president,” he said. That’s “laying the groundwork for a constabulary force that will control the population in America.”
“Look at what’s happening. Get out and do something to help stop something. Use our constitutional tools. Let your congressman know how you feel about this. Be a pain in their neck … .”
“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,” his letter began.The retired officer expressed deep concerns over “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.”Capt. Hestilow added a statement that Barack Obama made during his 2008 campaign.“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],” he said.He also accused the administration of “deliberately defunding, overextending, and hollowing the Department of Defense,” which he said is the “only legitimate agency” with the mission of conducting combat operations.In his letter, Capt. Hestilow called on Congress to demand that the DHS surrender their weapons systems to the Defense Department. He also accused the DHS of enforcing the “tyrannical acts of this president” and said lawmakers should dissolve the agency “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 ofcontrol over the free citizens of a nation,” he added.
Earlier in the week, Capt. Hestilow asked his Facebook followers who the DHS intends to kill with the weapons and ammunition that it has recently purchased.
“Short answer,” he wrote. “You and me! Anyone they think is standing in their way to impose a new Marxist government! Anyone who stands for the U.S. Constitution!”
“If I live and still have a page to speak out on later this week, I will discuss a proper Constitutional response in a couple of days. Standby. Out,” he wrote on Thursday.
Capt. Hestilow ended his strongly-worded letter with a simple declaration: “We refuse to surrender our Constitution or our nation!”
On top of these warnings The United Nations is working towards global disarmament through their US Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty (“ATT”) which is being held this week in New York. Many UN Member Nations have already disarmed their own citizens and that is exactly what they would like to see happen in the United States.
However, the UN is not working alone. They’ve got a propaganda machine tirelessly working every day targeting the NRA and gun owners as evil. That propaganda machine is known as “The International Action Network on Small Arms” (“IANSA”) located in London, England.
IANSA’s power and influence comes from over 500 anti-gun, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) who are members of the group.
Rebecca Peters, who originally headed up IANSA, also worked for well-known philanthropist, billionaire and gun-hater George Soros’ Open Society Institute. Ms. Peters has been successful in obtaining an endless supply of money for IANSA’s gun control agenda.
Ms. Peters led the gun ban in Australia, and is resigned to do the same to Americans. Ms. Peters is now an international arms control advocate. With her leadership, the Australian gun law banned all gun ownership. The Australian government destroyed more than about 650,000 of these weapons, with the largest gun buyback and destruction program in history.
England and Australia have already proven that their gun bans have backfired. Crimes have sky rocketed and innocent victims have been left defenseless. However, many countries are already enforcing the UN’s agenda, such as Japan, England, and surprisingly, Canada – leading the way.
The UN’s ultimate goal is a binding international treaty and the UN just may succeed. If a treaty is ratified, our rights will be gone. Or, maybe all we need is an anti-gun President, who will pass an executive order, such as President Clinton did in the early 1990s with the implementation of United Nations Agenda 21, which has been stealthily being implemented under the name of “Sustainable Development” for the past 20 years.
The question asked was if this gun control law, which “prohibited” gun ownership conflicted with an individual’s right to bear arms. President Obama replied, “Just because you have an individual right doesn’t mean that that state or local government can’t “constrain” the exercise of that right.” Is “prohibition” the same as “constraint”? Doesn’t our Second Amendment state that our right to bear arms “shall not be infringed”?
I believe our Constitution cannot be overridden by an outside force such as the UN. If I am wrong, please advise me otherwise. Peppermint
Also the DHS just announced that they will be buying 360,000 hollow point bullets to add to the 2 billion bought this past year. Although the DHS has attempted to explain its mammoth purchase of ammunition by claiming the bullets are being acquired in bulk to save money and that they are for training purposes only, this has been disputed by reputable voices such as former Marine Richard Mason, who told reporters with WHPTV News in Pennsylvania earlier this month, “We never trained with hollow points, we didn’t even see hollow points my entire four and a half years in the Marine Corps.”
In the meantime Senators Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz threaten to filibuster over any gun control measures:
The triumvirate said they will hand-deliver a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s office, which states, “We will oppose the motion to proceed to any legislation that will serve as a vehicle for any additional gun restrictions.” This all but spells out a brewing filibuster, which was able to break through the mainstream media wall-of-silence on drone usage via social media.
According to Katie Pavlich from Townhall. com:
This is actually a brilliant move by Paul and Cruz. Reid has already had the ability to protect Democrats from voting on the assault weapons ban, but a filibuster on criminalization legislation would force Reid to either try and stop the talking, which will bring attention to gun control efforts of vulnerable Democrats or will be forced to allow a filibuster to continue, preventing a vote on the legislation.
At least we have 3 Senators willing and ready to stand on principle to protect us and our Constitution. Remarkable in today’s GOP’s handling of issues that concern our Constitution and are not willing to stand up for them. Hurray to these 3 Senators, the new guys on the block who actually believe in liberty and freedom.
