The name which struck terror into the German people who still believed in freedom and wanted their nation to remain a peaceful, respectable member within the international community. Nazi Germany’s SS was a force for terror and intimidation, creating an aura of fear within the citizenry and horror for the remainder of the world watching the spectacle of a police state far more brutal than any in human history up to that time. Apparently this lesson has not been lost on the dictators of the world since that era as the communist leaders and rulers around the world learned that building an effective domestic spying and military police apparatus was the key to remaining in power.
Welcome to modern America my friends, as Obama’s SS is here now.
Think I am crazy? Let’s start by reviewing the following video:
The video created by the DHS above appears to reflect a peaceful national law enforcement agency which supports local LEO’s by hitting hard at the most difficult criminal situations and engaging with highly specialized and sometimes classified investigations in addition to a terrifyingly effective paramilitary force known as Homeland Security Investigations, Special Response Team (SRT). The HSI-SRT is not shy about their role in American society but a story in this morning’s Sarasota Herald-Tribune caught my attention and caused me to take a step back and review what other toys and roles they have taken on. In the story titled “The law enforcement agency you’ve probably never heard of” written by Shannon McFarland, a strange reference as to the size of the HSI having 6,700 plus special agents caused me to realize that this was a far more powerful group than initially indicated. In fact the DHS website about the HSI states:
In addition to ICE criminal investigations, HSI oversees the agency’s international affairs operations and intelligence functions. HSI consists of more than 10,000 employees, consisting of 6,700 special agents, who are assigned to more than 200 cities throughout the U.S. and 47 countries around the world.
SNN News, a local cable news outlet also covered the HSI in a story of their own on March 13th:
Both of the stories above allude to the “donation” of MRAPs by the United States Marines Corps to the DHS-HSI units. What is unusual is that these stories seem to confirm rather than dilute the original story published in March then later denied by DHS about 2,717 MRAPs acquired by DHS. In fact another video from the El Paso, TX HSI-SRT unit produced by FireandPoliceVideos and posted on YouTube seems to further confirm this purchase was made at some point in the past but creates more unanswered questions:
Those questions being, why does the United States government need a paramilitary force equipped with armored cars used by the military for domestic law enforcement functions? Better yet, why do they have their own fleet of proverbial “black helicopters”?
There are some brave souls which posted videos of the UH 60 Blackhawk helicopters in action, working with local law enforcement in a training exercise also:
However, this video is not the only time the American public has seen these Blackhawk helicopters in action with the HSI-SRT units. Remember this gem from Brickell, Florida in the middle of the night in 2011?
Or in 2012, the same unit in South Florida training again as well as in Chicago.
Again, the question is why? Why the sudden rush to engage in paramilitary training exercises throughout the United States? Why the conditioning of the American public with fluff stories like those in the Sarasota newspaper and SNN above as well as on WGN-TV in Chicago below:
Each time consists of 16 men in over 200 cities. However this does not include the manpower available with over 200,000 PSC’s (Private Security Contractors, aka, mercenaries like the former Blackwater, etc.) which continue to operate in a vacuum due to no Congressional oversight and outside the parameters of Posse Comitatus restrictions. Without counting the PSC’s, this makes the HSI the 2nd largest law enforcement agency in the United States but that is not the disturbing part of this story. The Sarasota Herald-Tribune piece hit upon one particular aspect which provided me with grave discomfort as to the role of the Federal Government within local law enforcement. During 2010, Dontae Morris killed two Tampa police officers and four other men during a crime spree which caused a massive four day manhunt. Logically speaking this is purely a local matter where the Tampa Police Department, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office, Florida State Patrol, and FDLE could have handled this case without assistance. But for some strange unexplained and formerly unrevealed reason, HSI participated in the manhunt with local LEO’s in a matter far outside of their stated scope and mission goals.
This is not the only case where HSI has been active. It appears they participated in the Katrina recovery operations also but there is no confirmation that they participated in the gun confiscations which occurred there but since they wear uniforms and t-shirts which say “POLICE” who is to ever know conclusively that this was not their initiation under the Bush administration?
The DHS-HSI is not only a prototypical domestic police force to be reckoned with, they are a truly modern paramilitary unit with all of the latest drone technology. They have had the Predator drones and allegedly wanted to use the fleet to assist with ICE operations regarding border enforcement; a joke since there has been nothing done to strengthen our border nor enforce the laws against illegal entry in over a decade.
What President George W. Bush started in 2003 has evolved into a nightmarish future with drones flying high above snapping photos of citizens day or night, listening in and storing every email or phone conversation while tracking the individual citizen’s daily movements using the current technology strapped to most the hips of most men or in a woman’s purse without a warrant.
The fear now is the force multiplier effect of this technology against American citizens. There have been numerous concerns over the years about using drone technology within the U.S. border against the population without a warrant. Senator Rand Paul recently held a filibuster to force the administration into an admission that this technology would not be used against individual citizens by the Federal Government. Since the Obama regime’s track record of upholding the rule of law and fulfilling promises to guarantee the rights provided by God and the Constitution is shaky at best, the concerns are real when one considers the new drone technology currently being deployed which can terminate individuals without the use of a Hellfire missile. The ShadowHawk was the first breakthrough now being deployed in such a role:
Yes, killbot is a fairly generic science fiction term to describe large, menacing machines built to commit murder or other damage, but that’s what these new ShadowHawks are for.
How else can you explain the fact the ShadowHawk can be equipped with a XREP taser that is capable of shooting four barbed electrodes? These electrodes can be shot at a distance of up to 100 feet giving “neuromuscular incapacitation” to the victim from above.
It gets more killtastic though.
This baby can also be armed with 37mm or 40mm grenade launchers and or a multiple shot 12 gauge shotgun. Just in case some people on the ground need to be taken out.The same technology that has been utilized to find and kill insurgents in Afghanistan and Iraq for years now has the Department of Homeland Security’s approval for use in the United States. Our tax dollars are funding a killbot revolution it seems.
As of now, the ShadowHawk is not active nationally, but since everything is bigger in Texas, they’re trying to increase the size of their police state too. That’s because has recently received a grant from the Department of Homeland Security for a squadron of ShadowHawks.
That was two years ago which means the capacity to terminate individuals without the right to due process exists today and an even more updated version of this machine is probably in production if not deployment to local agencies as well as the DHS-HSI units at this very moment. The United States military is no longer needed for domestic law enforcement, civilian suppression, or security it would appear as Obama has obtained his own civilian controlled private army which acts as a police force buried within the Department of Homeland Security under the cloak of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
In 1929, Adolf Hitler made a similar plan become reality under the leadership of Heinrich Himmler. The plan was to create a national police force to prevent the riots, terrorist attacks, and disruptions which the Communist Party initiated after World War I throughout Europe while at the same time installing a permanent national intelligence force with its own enforcement division to ensure obedience and prevent any opposing forces from rising up against the leadership in Germany.
America has sadly followed a similar path where freedoms are being surrendered for security while a massive domestic military buildup is ignored while at the same time our troops returning from foreign wars are neglected and left to fend for themselves. The first ever domestic police force under civilian control with military capabilities is now in place within our borders and few Americans seem to care. Now I understand what the minorities and those aware of the evil power of the state felt like in Germany during the 1930’s. It is only a matter of time before this army is expanded again and unleashed on those who dare to oppose the desires of the political elites in power.
Ich habe mich immer gefragt, was die 1920er und 1930er Jahre wie waren, aber ich wollte es nie aus der deutschen Perspektive zu sehen….
