Look, TSA workers were fat to begin with, you sit on your ass all day and tell me you're not busting buttons on your trousers.

I remember who paid for my uniforms when I was in bootcamp - ME. About half my first month's check, IIRC.

My first experience with how this country really feels about the people that defend it. 4321

Kind of shitty when you're making less than minimum wage and are basically required to buy the stuff.

But I'm glad that the ****ing dildos strip-searching old ladies on the off chance that one of them might have a dirty bomb shoved up her snatch get their clothes for free.

The (Disturbing/Dangerous) Parallels Between DHS & Nazi Germany’s Gestapo
By Adina Kutnicki

On its face, the comparison of a U.S. based agency to the infamous Gestapo appears off the walls. In fact, if the Radical-in-Chief was not at the helm, this American-Israeli would be in full agreement. Loony tunes.

However, the U.S. is saddled with the most revolutionary POTUS in U.S. history ( and that “science” is already settled, at least if one hues to patriotic leanings. The Constitution alike.

In this regard, a primary lesson was given comparing/linking socialism to Nazism Most essentially, one has to recognize the Socialist-in-Chief’s ultimate goals, albeit through a more nuanced looking glass -

Once said lessons are learned, the next phase demands an ability to discern events swirling – some literally – overhead. As “mama Janet” (head of DHS) implements the orders of a revolutionary Commander-in-Chief, the expectation is that Americans will either “trust” (but not verify) that “Dear Leader” has their best interests at heart, or that patriots will remain frozen in place. Sort of like deer-in-headlights. Do patriots really want to get caught with their pants (figuratively, of course) down?

So, in order to internalize the thesis posited at the onset, a review of DHS’s “strange” pronouncements/actions is more than in order.

Now, does it seem prudent to politicize the main agency tasked with keeping the homeland safe, whatever ones political leanings? - .

Equally alarming, is the power given to Valerie Jarrett, a woman who is not only running the show, but whose communist and Islamist proclivities should preclude her from access to America’s power centers - …but that would necessitate a patriot steering the ship of state. Valerie’s fingerprints are embedded within DHS, and its Director is more than pleased to march in lock-step.

Back to the Black Hawks - …and onto the end game –

Extrapolating therein, does it seem to be overkill to compare DHS (under Obama) to the Nazi’s Gestapo?

‘Is the Department of Homeland Security Obama’s Gestapo?’

When Adolf Hitler made his rise to power, he established the Secret State Police in 1934, headed by Heinrich Himmler. The German name for them is Geheime Staatspolizei. Taking the bolded and underlined letters from the newly formed entity you get the more familiar term, Gestapo.

The role of the Gestapo was to spy on the German people and identify any and all opposition to Hitler’s Third Reich. They were given full authority to investigate and report or suspect cases of criminal attacks against the Nazi Party along with cases of sabotage, espionage and treason. What made them so deadly and sinister was that they were also given authority to act without any judicial oversight. They became the prosecutor, judge, jury and executioner of anyone that stood in Hitler’s way.

The Gestapo was given a sizeable budget and access to all the weapons, ammunitions and spying devices they wanted. Once they established their dark reputation, they used all of those devices and weapons far too frequently. Within a few years, no one dared to say or do anything that might be considered critical of the Nazi Party and its leaders. If they did, the Gestapo or its sister agency, the SS (Security Service) moved in and took care of the alleged problem.

Eighty years later, Barak Obama talks about creating a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, strong and as well-funded as the US military. In 2008, Obama talked about his desire to create his civilian army, but many of the references to that speech have mysteriously disappeared. However, WND posted the following clip of Obama’s admission:

Joseph Farah of WND also points out that the concept of a civilian national security force seems to be the idea of Robert Gates, then Secretary of Defense under President George W. Bush. Using Gates’ idea for the civilian force, it was no surprise to some that Obama kept him on as his Secretary of Defense.

Under Obama’s supervision, the Department of Homeland Security has been purchasing thousands of assault weapons, over a billion rounds of ammunition, of which 450 million are hollow-points, bulletproof vests, riot gear, bullet-proof traffic stops and other equipment one would readily associate with an army. Nearly 200,000 rounds of ammunition are specifically designed for sniper rifles. There are also plans to place 30,000 drones in our skies to spy on us.

If that makes you nervous, the Obama administration has also given approval for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to purchase 46,000 rounds of .40 caliber hollow points. Supposedly, they were purchased for NOAA’s Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement.

If the concept of a massive well-armed civilian national security force makes you nervous, consider the fact that Obama is currently tailoring the top military leaders to fit his agenda. Those that say they are willing to shoot American citizens if ordered to, are being promoted and placed in positions of top leadership. Those that won’t fire upon fellow Americans are being replaced by those that will shoot you and me.

If you look at the DHS website, you will see the following:

“The Department of Homeland Security has a vital mission: to secure the nation from the many threats we face. This requires the dedication of more than 240,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cybersecurity analyst to chemical facility inspector. Our duties are wide-ranging, but our goal is clear – keeping America safe.”

Reading this carefully, I see that they believe it is their job to spy on every American in the name of national security. Cybersecurity means they are monitoring our emails, web posts and internet searchers. Aviation encompasses the 30,000 drones that they plan to fly overhead.

DHS also has oversight of ATF and the Border Patrol. Although they fail to secure the border and protect Americans, it does give the DHS additional armed personnel already on the ground and awaiting instructions, and now they have plenty of ammunition for whatever those orders are.

Why else would Obama and the Democrats be pushing gun control legislation requiring every American to register their guns, be fingerprinted, photographed, and have a background check run on them? They know that there are over 300 million guns in the hands of private citizens and they want to know where they all are so they can use their superior weaponry to confiscate our guns.

When you add everything up, it seems that the Department of Homeland Security is becoming Obama’s civilian national security force. With the powers being given to them the weaponry and ammunition they have purchased, they are taking on many of the same aspects of Hitler’s Gestapo and Janet Napolitano may be the next Heinrich Himmler.

Members of Congress are demanding the Obama administration explain why it is stockpiling a huge arsenal of ammunition and weapons.

The Department of Homeland Security bought more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the last year, as well as thousands of armored vehicles.

Rep. Timothy Huelscamp, R-Kan., wants to know what DHS plans to do with all that firepower, but he can’t get an answer.

A reporter for We Are Change asked Huelscamp at the Conservative Political Action Conference last week why DHS needs weapons of war.

“They have no answer for that question. They refuse to answer to answer that,” Huelscamp said.

“I’ve got a list of questions of various agencies about multiple things. Far from being the most transparent administration in the world, they are the most closed-nature, opaque and they refuse to let us know what is going on, so I don’t have an answer for that. And multiple members of Congress are asking those questions,” he added.

Huelscamp said he plans to apply pressure to get an answer: “It comes down to during the budget process, during the appropriations process, are we willing to hold DHS’s feet to the fire? We’re going to find out. I say we don’t fund them ’til we get an answer.”

Rep. Leonard Lance, R-N.J., also wants answers, and WND has reported that he is demanding an explanation of DHS’s bullet buys from Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

“I think Congress should ask the department about both of those issues, and I would like a full explanation as to why that has been done, and I have every confidence that the oversight committee … should ask those questions,” said Lance, adding that he shared a belief “that Congress has a responsibility to ask Secretary Napolitano as to exactly why these purchases have occurred.”

As WND reported, the Department of Homeland Security has argued that it is buying in bulk to save money, explaining it uses as many as 15 million rounds a year for training law enforcement agents.

But the 1.6 billion rounds of ammo would be enough for more than 100 years of training, or, more ominously, enough to fight a war for more than 20 years. It would also be enough to shoot every American more than five times.

Forbes columnist Benko, who worked for two years in the U.S. Department of Energy’s general counsel’s office in its procurement and finance division, doubts the government’s explanation.
“To claim that it’s to ‘get a low price’ for a ridiculously wasteful amount is an argument that could only fool a career civil servant,” he writes.
