DHS Still Hasn’t Fired Black Supremacist Who Called for Mass Murder of Whites

Almost four months after he was unmasked as a militant black nationalist who called for murdering “Uncle Tom race traitors,” Ayo Kimathi is still employed.

The black-nationalist Department of Homeland Security employee who was placed on leave almost four months ago for running a website that espouses the mass murder of whites has still not been fired, an agency spokesperson told National Journal.

The Southern Poverty Law Center first exposed Ayo Kimathi in August, prompting a small media firestorm that led DHS to place the procurement officer on administrative leave with pay pending review. DHS deputy press secretary Gillian Christensen confirmed that his status has not changed and that he is still on leave pending review.

assholesKimathi, using the online nom de guerre “the Irritated Genie,” called for “ethnic cleansing” of “black-skinned Uncle Tom race traitors” on hiswebsite, which envisioned a massive race war on the horizon. “In order for Black people to survive the 21st century, we are going to have to kill a lot of whites—more than our Christian hearts can possibly count,” he wrote.

veteran_murderedIn other postings, he warned that whites and their enablers like President Obama are trying to “homosexualize” black men in order to make them weaker, and suggested that a woman’s primary role in life should be to “keep a strong Black man happy.” He also seemed to hold anti-Semitic views, claiming in a Facebook post that his website was under attack from a conspiracy of “zionist smallhats, the Uncle Tom koons,” and, naturally, “the haters.”

Kimathi, who has been at DHS since 2009, works for Immigration and Customs Enforcement and made $115,731 in 2012. Civil service laws make it difficult for the federal government to fire employees.

Government Executive‘s Charles Clark reported in early September that DHS received complaints about Kimathi as long as two years ago. A former supervisor of Kimathi’s told the SPLC that “everybody in the office is afraid of him,” and worried that he would “come in with a gun someday and go postal.”

In September, a contractor at the Washington Navy Yard killed 12 people and injured eight others in a shooting rampage that also left him dead.

Homeland Security has condemned Kimathi’s political views and said his employment is under review, but as of Monday afternoon, he remains employed. That’s not acceptable, says Josh Glasstetter of the SPLC, which researches hate groups of all stripes. “DHS should be tracking Kimathi, not employing him,” he told National Journal.

look_whos_coming_to_steal_your_dinner“This isn’t a mundane human resources matter or a tricky First Amendment question. DHS should have investigated and fired Kimathi months, or even years, ago,” Glasstetter added.

Kimathi has claimed his website was merely intended for entertainment. “The Irritated Genie of Soufeese” replied to a request for comment sent to his website saying “we will not be making any statements on this unfortunate situation.”

CBC recommends Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security post

sjleeJust two weeks after Janet Napolitano announced her resignation as Secretary of Homeland Security, the Congressional Black Caucus has suggested Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston fill her spot.

A letter dated July 25 and signed by Rep. Marcia Fudge, Ohio Democrat and caucus chairwoman, urges President Obama to consider Miss Jackson Lee for the position, calling the Democrat a “voice of reason” that the agency could stand to gain, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security,” the letter reads.

Mrs. Jackson Lee currently serves as a ranking member of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security, a position that the caucus said she “stands as a strong and honest ‘voice of reason.’”

DHS To Buy 360,000 More Rounds of Hollow Point Ammunition

Arms build-up continues as Congress demands answers

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
March 25, 2013

While the Department of Homeland Security continues to ignore members of Congress demanding to know why the federal agency is engaged in an apparent arms build-up, the DHS has just announced it plans to purchase another 360,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition to add to the roughly 2 billion bullets already bought over the past year.

The DHS has now purchased over 2 billion rounds of ammo.

A solicitation on the Federal Business Opportunities website details the DHS’ plan to purchase 360,000 rounds of “Commercial leaded training ammo (CLTA) Pistol .40 caliber 165 grain, jacketed hollow point.” The bullets are to be delivered to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico, the same destination for 240,000 hollow point rounds which were purchased only last month.

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.”

Hollow point bullets are almost twice as expensive as full metal jackets, therefore the DHS’ explanation that it is buying huge quantities in bulk to “save money” doesn’t make sense.

As we reported yesterday, concerns about the apparent arms build-up are growing, with retired United States Army Captain Terry M. Hestilow sending a letter to Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) warning that the ammo purchases represent “a bold threat of war by that agency (DHS), and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America.”

Questions from members of Congress about why the federal agency is buying up ammo, exacerbating shortages across the country, have been met with silence.

- Kansas Congressman Timothy Huelscamp said last week that threats should be made to withdraw funding from the DHS if it didn’t explain why it was purchasing so many bullets, remarking, “They have no answer for that question. They refuse to answer to answer that.”

Earlier this month, New Jersey Congressman Leonard Lance said, “Congress has a responsibility to ask Secretary Napolitano as to exactly why these purchases have occurred,” signaling his intention to get answers.

- Californian Congressman Doug LaMalfa and 14 of his House colleagues have written a letter to the Department of Homeland Security asking if the purchases are, “being conducted in a manner that strategically denies the American people access to ammunition.”

Wants your complete cooperation.

Wants your complete cooperation.

Although members of Congress are treating the matter with the seriousness it deserves, the mainstream and leftist media have attempted to ridicule the entire issue as a conspiracy theory, with Atlantic Wire even suggesting that the story had its origins in a debunked email, a report that completely failed to even mention the admitted fact that the DHS had purchased around 2 billion bullets.

While the DHS continues to purchase bullets in large quantities, police departments have been forced to barter amongst each other in a desperate scramble to meet their ammo needs.

For reference, here is the above poem in its entirety:

For Whom the Bell Tolls  – by John Donne

No man is an island, 
Entire of itself. 
Each is a piece of the continent, 
A part of the main. 
If a clod be washed away by the sea, 
Europe is the less. 
As well as if a promontory were. 
As well as if a manner of thine own 
Or of thine friend’s were. 
Each man’s death diminishes me, 
For I am involved in mankind. 
Therefore, send not to know 
For whom the bell tolls, 
It tolls for thee.

Truck carrying “Martial Law” signs seen in Missouri

I had prepared a draft of this post back on October 27, 2012 — mere days before the all-important November 6 elections. But my source was adamant that FOTM shouldn’t publish it because it would “frighten” the American people. I very much disagreed with his stance (my reason is below in red), but acceded to his wish.

Now that even the Left are talking about the Obama regime instigating martial law (see TrailDust’s post “Warnings from the Left and the Right about Obama’s plans martial law), I see no reason why I should hold back this post. (Besides, I am no longer on speaking terms with the source because, once again, he wanted to withhold the truth about another matter from our readers.) Here is my post, as I had written it on Oct. 27 last year.

Obama FOR WAR D

FOTM has an unspoken policy not to traffic in unsubstantiated rumors. But I decided to do this post because I believe the importance of the subject matter warrants countervening that policy.

The rumor is that some in the Obama regime are making preparations for martial law. If such a plan indeed is being hatched, exposure of the plan to public knowledge can act as a deterrent, much as sunlight has a salubrious disinfectant effect on toxic bacteria.

Here’s the rumor. A trusted friend of FOTM received this email from “Joe,” a former U.S. Marine. Here’s Joe’s email, dated Oct. 18, 2012:

Stopped at the new Mo rest area on IH44 this PM. There was a 18 wheeler loaded with big signs. On my way back from the whiz room, took a look at the signs about 8′ x 10′. I could not believe what I was reading:

“WARNING CITY CLOSED
MARTIAL LAW”

Joe

Alas, Joe did not take a picture of the signs, probably because he didn’t have a camera handy.

So I went scouring the Internet searching for any report that others also have seen the signs. All I could find was an assertion that “Martial Law” signs were seen in Utah in June or July 2012.

The claim was made on the Drake Blog Radio Show of July 4, 2012. In the audio below, beginning at the 15:10 mark, Drake Bailey said that “a few days ago” a military truck wrecked in the woods in Utah. The people who came to help saw that the truck was packed with cargo that included signs that said “Bank Closed” and “Martial Law,” as well as “paperwork” that says the signs are to be “put out” in October, right before the election.

When we put these sightings of “Martial Law” signs in the context of the posts FOTM have done on military drills with Black Hawk helicopters over urban cities, the DHS arming itself to the teeth with armored vehicles, battle rifles, and hollow-point bullets, etc. (see below), speculations and rumors about an Obama martial law no longer seem so far-fetched.

TSA agents told to “save yourself” in airport checkpoint shooting

TSA lines

Alan Jones of The Washington Times reports that a whistleblower in the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) warns that TSA checkpoint screeners are receiving training to prepare them for the possibility of a mass shooting at some airport checkpoint, and that the screeners are instructed to “save themselves” should a shooting occur.

Since TSA agents are unarmed, we don’t know what “saving themselves” would actually mean.

The unnamed whistleblower is a TSA screener who claims to have recently undergone such training, during which TSA personnel were confronted with a chilling checkpoint shooting scenario. The whistleblower is now fearful for his life. Along with the lives of other unarmed TSA personnel, his life would be in grave danger were an airport checkpoint shooting to unfold. He said: “Every day when I arrive for work, I look for an escape route in case someone opens fire. We have been told to save ourselves.”

TSA is an agency within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). In addition to the 1.6 billion bullets, mostly jacketed hollow points, which the DHS had purchased, Examiner.com reports, Jan. 28, 2013, that DHS just put in a bid to purchase 7,000 assault weapons — select fire or automatic AR-15 rifles.

assault_rifle

Like Congress and other government officials and agencies, DHS is exempted from Sen. Feinstein’s “assault weapons” ban bill.

In his Washington Times article, Jones also makes mention of something I had not known: The “underwear bomber” incident on Christmas Day 2009 may have been a “false flag” event by the Obama regime’s Homeland Security.

There are eyewitness reports, including one by Michigan attorney Kurt Haskell, a 2012 Democratic Congressional candidate who lost to incumbent Tim Walberg (R-MI), that DHS knew that “underwear bomber” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian, was a threat to air safety. Despite that, Abdulmutallab was seen being assisted by “a well-dressed man” who helped the Nigerian terrorist board Northwest Airlines flight 253 without a passport.

Read the rest of Jones’ Washington Times article here.

I don’t know what this reported TSA training means: Is DHS sounding a warning to its TSA agents, knowing that there will be a “false flag” mass shooting incident at some airport? Or is the DHS merely being precautionary?

One thing for sure is that being unarmed, passengers waiting in long lines to go through TSA screening in congested airports are “sitting ducks” if a shooting were to occur.

Latino Grocery Chain Under Attack for Using E-Verify

Mi Pueblo Foods, a supermarket chain serving the hispanic community in California, employs approximately 3,000 people.  The CEO, Juvenal Chavez, is a naturalized citizen.   Homeland Security Newswire reports:

Juvenal Chavez built his Mi Pueblo supermarket chain from the ground up into twenty-one stores, revitalized San Rafael’s Canal neighborhood in San Jose. He has been hailed  the king of Latino supermarket.

Now the entrepreneur has come under fire. Mi Pueblo shocked some of its 3,000 employees last month when it told them the supermarket chain has joined E-Verify, a DHS program that aims to verify the immigration status of new hires and existing employees.

Union activists accuse Chavez of betraying his own people, and are threatening a consumer boycott if he does not pull out of the program by next month.

In my opinion, Mr. Chavez is properly following federal law.  Part of the application for employment for every job in the U.S. includes a DHS Form I-9.  It is basically an affidavit completed by both the applicant and the employer attesting that the identification provided is legal and true and the applicant is eligible to work by federal standards.   The Form I-9 must be kept in the employee’s human resources file to be available for scrutiny.

Employers who use the E-Verify program merely submit the ID provided on the Form I-9.    People with legitimate Social Security Numbers and appropriate ID have nothing to fear.   ~LTG

Federal employees watch child porn on govt computers

Federal government workers in the bureaucracies of the Executive branch — TSA, DHS, SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission), State Dept, Pentagon, and the latest, the Missile Defense Agency — are watching not just porn on the taxpayer’s dime, they’re watching child porn. Since porn sites are notoriously infested with computer viruses and spy cookies inserted by foreign intelligence, their watching porn on government computers is also a national security risk.

Dr. Lori Handrahan, a professor at American University’s School of International Service, writes for The Washington Times, Aug. 10, 2012, about the Executive branch porn problem:

[...] This past week, the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency warned its staff not to view porn on U.S. government computers. The Pentagon also released a report on April’s Secret Service Colombian scandal. The two are connected.

In April, I said the Colombian scandal exposed a national security problem, the epidemic of U.S. government employees viewing porn — child porn — on government networks. I suggested readers type “Transportation Security Administration,” “U.S. State Department,” “Pentagon,” “Immigration and Customs Enforcement” and “child porn” into Google’s search field to understand the scope. I neglected to include “Missile Defense Agency.”

Bloomberg quotes a cybersecurity expert saying the Missile Defense Agency’s use of porn is concerning because “many pornographic websites are infected and criminals and foreign intelligence services such as Russia’s use them to gain access and harvest data.”

The only possible response is: Duh.

In 2006, the deputy press secretary for the Department of Homeland Security was arrested for trying to seduce online someone he thought was a teenage girl. Four years later, the Securities and Exchange Commission found that 17 of 31 employees caught accessing porn at work since 2008 — one for up to eight hours a day — were senior staff.

In 2010, the Boston Globe reported that senior Pentagon staff were downloading child porn. Instead of generating a media storm, the story died. Senior staff were watching the sexual torture of small children on Pentagon computers, and Americans were not outraged?

The latest revelation of missile-defense staff using porn should have America extremely alarmed. It is not yet confirmed if child porn was involved.

[...] How does this relate to President Obama’s leadership problem?The Colombia scandal was the president’s wake-up call. The White House needed to order an in-depth and urgent investigation into porn, child porn and prostitution in all government agencies. Mr. Obama did no such thing. Now America’s Missile Defense Agency may be exposing the core of our national security. So grave and unpatriotic is this violation, it might border on treason. Yet Mr. Obama remains unconcerned. Members of Congress are so alarmed by the president’s behavior that they recently passed an amendment preventing the administration from sharing missile-defense technology with Russia. The Missile Defense Agency may have done so already.

Thomas Jefferson once said he feared for his country when he reflected that God was just. I, too, fear for my country. No one is home in the Obama White House, and the Russians know this. Allen Dulles must be rolling in his grave. Americans should be extremely concerned.

Federal agencies scramble to allay fears about ammo purchases

No thanks to the MSM, but publicized by conservatives blogs like FOTM, more and more Americans now know that civilian bureaucracies of the federal government, especially the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), are amassing an arsenal of shotguns and hollow-point bullets that are designed to expand as they enter the body, causing maximum damage by tearing apart internal organs.

First, it was the Department of Education buying shotguns in March 2010. Then in March 2012 came news that the DHS ordered 450 million rounds of .40 caliber ammunition. The next month, April 2012, it was the USDA buying 300,000 rounds of ammo. In July 2012 came news that the DHS added high-powered battle rifles to its arsenal. On August 8, 2012, the DHS ordered over half a ton of high explosives. On August 10, 2012, the DHS put in an order for even more ammunition – hundreds of millions of rounds. On August 15, 2012, the Social Security Administration and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) also put in their orders for tens of thousands of hollow-point bullets.

These federal agencies must have heard from alarmed citizens because they are now vociferously tamping down speculation over the ammo purchases.

FoxNews.com reports, August 17, 2012, that Infowars.com speculated that the ammo purchases were being made in preparation for “civil unrest,” imagining a scenario of economic collapse where seniors could cause “disorder” if denied their Social Security benefits. So the federal agencies are now trying to allay public fears and apprehension over the ammo purchases by assuring the American people that the ammunition is “standard issue” and simply used for mandatory federal training sessions.

A message on the official blog for Social Security’s inspector general office explained that their agents need firearms and ammo in the course of training, investigations and responding to threats against offices and employees: “Our special agents need to be armed and trained appropriately. As we said in a recent post, our office has criminal investigators, or special agents, who are responsible for investigating violations of the laws that govern SSA’s programs.”

The agency said it has 295 special agents across 66 offices in the country. “These investigators have full law enforcement authority, including executing search warrants and making arrests,” the statement said.

As for concern about the type of bullets — hollow points, which expand upon impact — the statement said the type is “standard issue” and is used during “mandatory quarterly firearms qualifications and other training sessions.”

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA, found itself scrambling to respond to a similar report this week about an order for 46,000 rounds of ammo. Though the agency initially indicated it was for the National Weather Service — leading to questions about why the National Weather Service could possibly need so many bullets — a spokesman clarified the bullets are actually meant for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement. A “clerical error” resulted in the order saying the ammo was for the weather service.

Spokesman Scott Smullen said the error’s been fixed in the bidding system. He, too, said the ammo is “standard issue” and will be used by 63 enforcement personnel at NOAA during qualifications and training sessions.

“NOAA officers and agents enforce the nation’s ocean and fishing laws to ensure a level playing field for fishermen and to protect marine species like whales, dolphins and turtles,” he said.

According to NOAA, the specialized agents are supposed to have 200 rounds in their “duty bag,” and qualification and training requires another 500-600 rounds per agent.

+++

I say the more transparency about what government does, the better. I also heard from the grapevine that some of DHS’s gun and ammo purchases is due to DHS having a seemingly unlimited budget. So the DHS turns around and simply gives some of its arms purchases to local police across America.

What concerns me about this are:

  • Why is the DHS so flushed with cash when the federal government is $16 trillion in debt?
  • Will the DHS’s “largesse” to local police at the expense of taxpayers lead to local law enforcement feeling beholden and increasingly dependent on the federal government?
  • These ammo purchases by federal agencies will drive up the price of guns and bullets for citizen consumers.

US Army targets Tea Party movement as extremists in 2016 civil war scenario

The U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), established on July 1, 1973, is the official command component that is responsible for training and developing the United States Army.

TRADOC’s sleeve patch or insignia

Headquartered at Fort Eustis, Virginia. TRADOC is charged with overseeing training of Army forces, the development of operational doctrine, and the development and procurement of new weapons systems. TRADOC operates 33 schools and centers at 16 Army installations for our soldiers, other-service personnel, international soldiers and civilians.

The official mission statement for TRADOC states:

“TRADOC develops the Army’s Soldiers and Civilian leaders and designs, develops and integrates capabilities, concepts and doctrine in order to build a campaign-capable, expeditionary Army in support of joint warfighting capability through Army Force Generation (ARFORGEN).”

Those “concepts and doctrines” include the envisioning of likely future scenarios in which the United States may find ourselves and how the US Army will conduct its operations. That is why TRADOC’s Pamphlet 525-3-1, Army’s Operating Concept 2016-2028, issued on August 19, 2010, is of importance and concern. Why? Because the document envisions a civil war breaking out in America in 2016 — a war instigated by “political reactionaries” — “an extremist militia motivated by the goals of the ‘tea party’ movement.”

I tried to access the PDF of Operating Concept 2016-2028 (henceforth referred to as OC), but was told “Access Denied.” Therefore, we must depend on Kevin Benson and Jennifer Weber’s account of OC in Small Wars Journal. (Kevin Benson, Ph.D., is a retired Army colonel; Weber is an associate professor of history with a specialty in the American civil war, at the University of Kansas.)

UPDATE (Aug. 17): Thanks to reader Kevin McDonald, you can read OC (Army Operating Concept 2016-2028) for yourself by going here, or if that link is scrubbed, I’ve saved the document to FOTM’s media library: TRADOC Op Con 2016-2028!

No authorship is given for the 65-page OC, but the document bears the imprimatur and official approval of the United States Army. It begins with a “Foreword” by Martin E. Dempsey, General, U.S. Army, Commanding; followed by a brief explanation of the meaning of the Army’s “operating concept” by John E. Sterling, Jr., Lieutenant General, U. S. Army, Commanding General/Chief of Staff.

OC first lays out the rationale for the deployment of the U.S. military inside America’s borders. Benson and Weber write:

“If we face a period of persistent global conflict as outlined in successive National Security Strategy documents, then Army officers are professionally obligated to consider the conduct of operations on U.S. soil [...] to defend the republic at home.  In this paper, we posit a scenario in which a group of political reactionaries take over a strategically positioned town and have the tacit support of not only local law enforcement but also state government officials, right up to the governor.  Under present law, which initially stemmed from bad feelings about Reconstruction, the military’s domestic role is highly circumscribed.  In the situation we lay out below, even though the governor refuses to seek federal help to quell the uprising (the usual channel for military assistance), the Constitution allows the president broad leeway in times of insurrection. Citing the precedents of Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War and Dwight D. Eisenhower sending troops to Little Rock in 1957, the president mobilizes the military and the Department of Homeland Security, to regain control of the city.  This scenario requires us to consider how domestic intelligence is gathered and shared, the role of local law enforcement (to the extent that it supports the operation), the scope and limits of the Insurrection Act–for example maintaining a military chain of command but in support of the Attorney General as the Department of Justice is the Lead Federal Agency (LFA) under the conditions of the Act–and the roles of the local, national, and international media. [...]

The Insurrection Act does not need to be changed for the 21st century.  Because it is broadly written, the law allows the flexibility needed to address a range of threats to the Republic. 

What we must consider in the design of homeland defense or security exercises is translating the Act into action. The Army Operating Concept describes Homeland Defense as the protection of ‘U.S. sovereignty, territory, domestic population, and critical defense infrastructure against external threats and aggression, or other threats as directed by the president’ (OC, p. 27).”

And now, read OC’s “Scenario 2016″ envisioned by the U.S. Army:

The Scenario (2016) 

The Great Recession of the early twenty-first century lasts far longer than anyone anticipated.  After a change in control of the White House and Congress in 2012, the governing party cuts off all funding that had been dedicated to boosting the economy or toward relief.  The United States economy has flatlined, much like Japan’s in the 1990s, for the better part of a decade.  By 2016, the economy shows signs of reawakening, but the middle and lower-middle classes have yet to experience much in the way of job growth or pay raises.  Unemployment continues to hover perilously close to double digits, small businesses cannot meet bankers’ terms to borrow money, and taxes on the middle class remain relatively high.  A high-profile and vocal minority has directed the public’s fear and frustration at nonwhites and immigrants.  After almost ten years of race-baiting and immigrant-bashing by right-wing demagogues, nearly one in five Americans reports being vehemently opposed to immigration, legal or illegal, and even U.S.-born nonwhites have become occasional targets for mobs of angry whites.

In May 2016 an extremist militia motivated by the goals of the “tea party” movement takes over the government of Darlington, South Carolina, occupying City Hall, disbanding the city council, and placing the mayor under house arrest.  Activists remove the chief of police and either disarm local police and county sheriff departments or discourage them from interfering.  In truth, this is hardly necessary.  Many law enforcement officials already are sympathetic to the tea party’s agenda, know many of the people involved, and have made clear they will not challenge the takeover.  The militia members are organized and have a relatively well thought-out plan of action.

With Darlington under their control, militia members quickly move beyond the city limits to establish “check points” – in reality, something more like choke points — on major transportation lines.  Traffic on I-95, the East Coast’s main north-south artery; I-20; and commercial and passenger rail lines are stopped and searched, allegedly for “illegal aliens.”  Citizens who complain are immediately detained.  Activists also collect “tolls” from drivers, ostensibly to maintain public schools and various city and county programs, but evidence suggests the money is actually going toward quickly increasing stores of heavy weapons and ammunition.  They also take over the town web site and use social media sites to get their message out unrestricted. 

When the leaders of the group hold a press conference to announce their goals, they invoke the Declaration of Independence and argue that the current form of the federal government is not deriving its “just powers from the consent of the governed” but is actually “destructive to these ends.”  Therefore, they say, the people can alter or abolish the existing government and replace it with another that, in the words of the Declaration, “shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”  While mainstream politicians and citizens react with alarm, the “tea party” insurrectionists in South Carolina enjoy a groundswell of support from other tea party groups, militias, racist organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan, anti-immigrant associations such as the Minutemen, and other right-wing groups.  At the press conference the masked militia members’ uniforms sport a unit seal with a man wearing a tricorn hat and carrying a musket over the motto “Today’s Minutemen.”  When a reporter asked the leaders who are the “red coats” the spokesman answered, “I don’t know who the redcoats are…it could be federal troops.” Experts warn that while these groups heretofore have been considered weak and marginal, the rapid coalescence among them poses a genuine national threat.

The mayor of Darlington calls the governor and his congressman.  He cannot act to counter the efforts of the local tea party because he is confined to his home and under guard.  The governor, who ran on a platform that professed sympathy with tea party goals, is reluctant to confront the militia directly.  He refuses to call out the National Guard.  He has the State Police monitor the roadblocks and checkpoints on the interstate and state roads but does not order the authorities to take further action.  In public the governor calls for calm and proposes talks with the local tea party to resolve issues.  Privately, he sends word through aides asking the federal government to act to restore order.  Due to his previous stance and the appearance of being “pro” tea party goals the governor has little political room to maneuver.

The Department of Homeland Security responds to the governor’s request by asking for defense support to civil law enforcement.  After the Department of Justice states that the conditions in Darlington and surrounding areas meet the conditions necessary to invoke the Insurrection Act, the President invokes it.

(From Title 10 US Code the President may use the militia or Armed Forces to:

§ 331 – Suppress an insurrection against a State government at the request of the Legislature or, if not in session, the Governor.

§ 332 – Suppress unlawful obstruction or rebellion against the U.S.

§ 333 – Suppress insurrection or domestic violence if it (1) hinders the execution of the laws to the extent that a part or class of citizens are deprived of Constitutional rights and the State is unable or refuses to protect those rights or (2) obstructs the execution of any Federal law or impedes the course of justice under Federal laws.)

By proclamation he calls on the insurrectionists to disperse peacefully within 15 days.  There is no violation of the Posse Comitatus Act.  The President appoints the Attorney General and the Department of Justice as the lead federal agency to deal with the crisis.  The President calls the South Carolina National Guard to federal service.  The Joint Staff in Washington, D.C., alerts U.S. Northern Command, the headquarters responsible for the defense of North America, to begin crisis action planning.  Northern Command in turn alerts U.S. Army North/Fifth U.S. Army for operations as a Joint Task Force headquarters.  Army units at Fort Bragg, N.C.; Fort Stewart, Ga.; and Marines at Camp Lejuene, N.C. go on alert.  The full range of media, national and international, is on scene.

Now, the pieces finally are coming together as to why:

  • There are persistent rumors that the Obama administration is preparing for civil war (see here and here).
  • Supposedly civilian federal agencies (from DHS to the Dept. of Education to, good grief, the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Agency) have been buying ammunition.
  • The Department of Homeland Security, in a recent report and a 2008 secret memo, identifies Americans who love liberty, are “fiercely nationalistic” and “anti-global,” pro-life, pro-Second Amendment gun rights, Christian, and military veterans, to be “domestic terrorists.”
  • FBI Director Robert Mueller told a Congressional committee hearing that he’s unsure whether the U.S. government has the right to assassinate U.S. citizens on U.S. soil.
  • Both parties in both houses of Congress passed a bill, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, which authorizes the President and the military to arrest and indefinitely detain U.S. citizens, without charge or trial.
  • There really are FEMA camps in every state of continental United States, ranging in size from 301 to 2,000 persons for up to 30 days of detention.

If the Founding Fathers were alive today, they would be deemed “domestic terrorists” by our government. I weep….

2 more federal agencies (Soc Security, National Oceanic & Atmospheric) buy hollow-point bullets

The United States of America has a well-armed military that (presumably) protects and defends our country from external aggressors, as well as state militias — the National Guard. So why are civilian bureaucracies of the federal government, especially the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), arming themselves and amassing an arsenal?

First, it was the Department of Education buying shotguns in March 2010. Then in March 2012 came news that the DHS ordered 450 million rounds of .40 caliber ammunition. The next month, April 2012, it was the USDA buying 300,000 rounds of ammo. In July 2012 came news that the DHS added high-powered battle rifles to its arsenal. On August 8, 2012, the DHS ordered over half a ton of high explosives. On August 10, 2012, the DHS put in an order for even more ammunition – hundreds of millions of rounds.

Add the Social Security Administration and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to that growing list.

Paul Joseph Watson reports for Infowars.com, August 15, 2012, that the Social Security Administraton has posted a solicitation on the FedBizOpps website for contractors to supply 174,000 rounds of “.357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow point pistol ammunition” that will be delivered to 41 locations across the country.

Hollow point bullets are designed to expand as they enter the body, causing maximum damage by tearing apart internal organs. An online ammunition retailer describes the bullets as suitable “for peak performance rivaling and sometimes surpassing handloads in many guns,” noting that the ammo is “a great personal defense bullet.”

The synopsis to the solicitation adds that the ammunition is to be shipped to 41 locations, which include the Social Security headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland as well as major cities across the country including Los Angeles, Detroit, Oklahoma City, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Denver, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Seattle.

Just yesterday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also put out a contract for 46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets along with 500 paper targets. NOAA’s order asked the bullets to be delivered to the National Weather Service, which NOAA later claimed was a “clerical error” and that the ammunition was being sent to the Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement instead. Of course, NOAA does not explain why the Office of Fisheries would need powerful hollow point bullets designed to tear apart internal organs.

Watson concludes:

“It’s not outlandish to suggest that the Social Security Administration is purchasing the bullets as part of preparations for civil unrest. Social security welfare is estimated to keep around 40% of senior citizens out of poverty. Should the tap run dry in the aftermath of an economic collapse which the Federal Reserve has already told top banks to prepare for, domestic disorder could ensue if people are refused their benefits.”

Folks, it’s looking more and more like the Obama administration knows something we don’t and is arming its civilian agencies in preparation for mass civil unrest or war.
