There’s little question whether or not we live in troubled times, but a move from the Obama administration has many people questioning the motive behind it and whether or not it’s preparing for war with the people.
As we all know, it’s illegal for our military to carry out any operations on our homeland against the American people. Of course, even if such an illegal order was given, our brave men and women who serve would ignore it anyway, as would many who served in the National Guard, which makes one wonder; why are our federal bureaucracies so heavily armed?
A new report from Open the Books, a taxpayer watchdog group, found that for the first time in American history, there’s more armed domestic federal government employees than there are members of the Marine Corps, and that number is steadily rising.
The Washington Free Beacon has more:
There are now more non-military government employees who carry guns than there are U.S. Marines, according to a new report.
Open the Books, a taxpayer watchdog group, released a study Wednesday that finds domestic government agencies continue to grow their stockpiles of military-style weapons, as Democrats sat on the House floor calling for more restrictions on what guns American citizens can buy.
The “Militarization of America” report found civilian agencies spent $1.48 billion on guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment between 2006 and 2014. Examples include IRS agents with AR-15s, and EPA bureaucrats wearing camouflage.
“Regulatory enforcement within administrative agencies now carries the might of military-style equipment and weapons,” Open the Books said. “For example, the Food and Drug Administration includes 183 armed ‘special agents,’ a 50 percent increase over the ten years from 1998-2008. At Health and Human Services (HHS), ‘Special Office of Inspector General Agents’ are now trained with sophisticated weaponry by the same contractors who train our military special forces troops.”
The same report found that there’s over 200,000 armed non-military federal officers with arrest capability, and they have the same weaponry that the military uses. So what’s it all for?
Word of the day: Prepare! And do it the old fashion way, like our fore-fathers did it and succeed long before us, because what lies ahead of us will require all the help we can get. Watch this video and learn the 3 skills that ensured our ancestors survival in hard times of famine and war.
If you remember, on July 2, 2008, then-presidential candidate, Barack Obama said, “We cannot rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We gotta have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”
Perhaps that offers us some clues as to why these agencies aren’t relying on local police like they used to. So is Obama now arming these agencies so they become the domestic military force that he said we needed back in 2008?
At the end of September 2015, Pope Francis boarded a plane back to the Vatican after and extremely controversial trip to America. Shortly after he left, Obama was back in the public eye, attacking religious freedom.
Later that night, at a Democratic National Committee-sponsored event in New York, promoted as a “LGBT Gala,” Obama took the stage. During his speech, he warned Christians throughout the country that religious freedom was not as important as gay rights.
“We affirm that we cherish our religious freedom and are profoundly respectful of religious traditions,” the POTUS said. “But we also have to say clearly that our religious freedom doesn’t grant us the freedom to deny our fellow Americans their constitutional rights.”
Obama criticized Christian groups for their “genuine concerns.” Still, he insisted that the issue was being pushed by Republicans, who were simply trying to acquire more votes.
Fast forward to today, and it is clear that Obama is more than happy to throw out our Constitutional rights entirely as long as he gets more votes for his anti-gun agenda.
It is ironic that Obama ignores the constitution when it comes to our gun rights, but clings on to it to push his LGBT agenda.
“America has left the leaders of the Republican Party behind,” Obama said during his speech in September, before lashing out at then-candidates Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and Mike Huckabee.
It is very clear from Obama’s actions that the US citizens needs to be disarmed while a new army (that will obey his demands) is growing every day. Where do you think his actions will lead?
Well, that remains to be seen, but this much is for certain; these agencies don’t need this kind of weaponry given the jobs they’re tasked with, so something sinister appears to be happening behind the scenes.
