U.S. Marine Colonel Warns: “Homeland Security is Pre-Staging Gear and Equipment”




We live in a seemingly free country, so we’re told.

But that may be because the majority of us have never spent time in a war zone or highly secured police state-like environment.

Few of us understand what it looks like when military and state intelligence assets take over.

Those who do understand, and have themselves implemented such plans in other countries, see exactly what’s going on and they are sounding the alarm (often falling on deaf ears).

In Concord, New Hampshire the local police chief has filed a requisition with the Department of Homeland Security to beef up his police force with a Ballistic Engineered Armored Response Counter Attack Truck to quell any disturbances initiated by activists or other potential domestic terrorists.

In response, the residents held a city council meeting, prompting a retired Marine Colonel to weigh in.

He was formerly a coordinator tasked with manning, training and equipping the Iraqi Army throughout the northern provinces, and he candidly shares his insights and compares the nationwide lock-down in Iraq to what’s happening right here at home.

This is coming from someone who knows – someone who has seen exactly how a population is put under control by means of surveillance and force – and he suggests that what they did in Iraq is child’s play compared to what’s happening in the Land of the Free today.

My job was to man, train and equip the Iraqi Army in Al Anbar, Najaf, Karbala and the northern provinces… We did everything we could to make it as strong as possible.

I’ll tell you right now, homeland security would kick their butts in a week.

What’s happening here is we’re building a domestic military, because it’s unlawful…unconstitutional to use American troops on American soil. So, what we’re doing is we’re building a military.

The way we do things in the military is called task organization. You take a command and then you attach units to it in order to accomplish the mission.

What’s happening is Homeland Security is pre-staging gear and equipment… what they’re trying to do is use standardized vehicles, standardized equipment. 

I saw a picture of the Marathon bombing and there were two officers – they both had identical helmets, flack jackets, weapons… everything I wore in Iraq.

What we’re doing here – let’s not kid about it – we’re building a domestic army and we’re shrinking the military because the government is afraid of its own citizens.

I don’t know where we’re going to use this many vehicles and this many troops.

I can’t believe people aren’t seeing it. Is everybody blind?

While Americans go about their daily activities- sipping their $4 morning coffees, sharing their pictures on social media sites, talking about the latest draft prospects at the water cooler, and focusing their efforts on acquiring the latest and greatest mobile devices – a sinister government is hard at work behind the scenes to ensure complete access to every detail of our lives, as well as the heavy-handed means to control us should we step out of line.

America, according to Janet Napolitano’s Department of Homeland Security and the various forms of  ”secret” legislation passed by Congress, is now a domestic war zone, so it only makes sense that local police forces, in an effort to sidestep the restrictions set forth by the U.S. Constitution, are being heavily militarized to fight the new threat.

As noted by one DHS Insider, “it has already begun – you’re seeing it now.”

You are the target and millions of government personnel have been tasked with making sure you don’t step out of line by using any means necessary.

      He is a Muslim, does anybody pay attention any more. He is out to destroy America. He and his wife hate America, they have stated as such before he was ever elected to the WH. He is not our President because he is not a citizen of this country. His birth certificate is a forgery. That has already been proven.

        Obama is a mere puppet of the ruling elite. He does their bidding and nothing more. The last president to attempt exposing the ‘powers that be’ was assassinated. Every president since then has learned his place. Elections/voting is futile. Many people believe that voting in the ‘right party can effect change but, it’s just an illusion. All parties support the same power base’s basic agenda with minor insignificant differences.

    As someone very familiar with what is going on behind the scenes, I couldn’t agree more – Unless Syria and Egypt ignite into that type of chaos that commands “boots on the ground” intervention – redirecting their focus, you can bet that the focus will be on internal security within the United States. An informed citizenry with key leaders will be needed to organize a response to those who would attempt to suppress and muzzle the U.S. Constitution and those liberties afforded. It will take skilled communications abilities that can circumvent the NSA net being designed under the guise of mitigating terrorist activities…when what it is actually designed to do is to suppress internal action to kick the support apparatus out from under the abomination that is smothering us.

      I can’t believe all this rhetoric and nobody has figured it out yet. Obummer, congress et al are very much like a Magician. While you are looking at one hand, the other one is busy doing the Magic. While The Government is directing the Mass Comedians to some “Crisis” that fades into a blur in a week. Congress or Obummer slips another one by the Citizens.
      Like Clinton did with the supposed near second invasion of Kuwait by Saddam, when he sent the U.S. Military and reporters back to Kuwait. Little attention was paid to the Impeachment hearings going on here at the same time.
      Make your own timelines, figure it out for yourself. With each “Crisis” we hear about, what went on in the halls of Congress that we got stuck with?
      It has been, quietly, published that each class of FEMA Emergency Responders is about 230 people, and they graduate a class every two weeks. DHS is doing the same thing. Do the math for a year, two years, ten years. Factor in the Equipment, arms and billions of rounds of ammo (more than the military uses in training, by far). Do some research on your own. I was in Iraq and saw the same “UP ARMORED” there that we are seeing here. Why? What good will they be in a flood? Tornado? Hurricane? Then when you get the warm fuzzy of that part. Think Hurricane Sandy. How effective were FEMA or DHS troops there? Or Newtown?

      Think people, THINK!

  3. Kaveman

    August 23, 2013 at 10:38 AM

    This is such an exaggeration of reality!!! First of all, we basically lost to the insurgency in Iraq. Second of all, Homeland Security can’t come close to the effectiveness of our military. I bet if there was a real life battle between US Marines and Homeland Security Law Enforcement Officers, he wouldn’t side with Homeland Defense if he wanted to survive. Third…the citizens of the United States are the largest armed group of people in the world bar none. A massive number of them have also served in the military and have training. If it ever comes to a societal break down where the citizens are against the government, its over extremely fast for the government. They will have defectors coming out their ears for one and they will face an armed militia in a scope and size the world has never seen.

    I think its more likely that Homeland Security can forsee that terrorism is coming back to US soil at some point. Who knows where and how bad but when it does come back, we in theory can’t use our highly trained and experienced military to combat it. So we need a domestic army as the Colonel states. I understand there are instances of abuse by our police officers but by far and large, they are some of the most professional and polite people we encounter. They look down the barrel of a lawsuit everyday which can end their career’s based on publicity alone. You think their superiors don’t go into cya mode and hang them out to dry? This is America. Your damn skippy they do. LOL.

    So lets get real about whats going on and spreading ignorance such as what is stated in this article.

        Back in the late 70’s I knew a lot of the Police in the town I live in. They formed s SWAT Team and had gone thru all of the training from the military people in charge of this. All but one were Nam vets and in the first workouts that they had I got to be one of the bad guys and I killed the entire team at least a dozen times before they got me. I was also in the Navy from 66 to 70 but was on a ship and had none of this kind of training. Just a hunter and outdoors type of person. They told me once that if I ever flipped out and the were sure I was in a certain building they would call the Fire Dept. because they would burn me out.

          Congress is not majority republican. Congress is made up of the senate and the house. The House is held by the majority in republicans and the senate is held by the majority in democrats. So one arm of government is the democrats in the senate, 2nd arm is the republicans in the house and the 3rd arm is the democrats in the potus.

        Vincent: You must be a young guy talking from his anal sphincter. Molotov cocktails work on armored vehicles just as well as they did against the Nazi’s. Some 30-0-0 fertilizer and gasoline mixed brought down the Murrow building in Oklahoma City. Lake City ammunition plant is making green tipped 5.56mm (223 cal.)ammo by the boxcar full. Put those little pills in a .22-250 40 degree shoulder Ackley Improved at over 4,000 feet per second and you’ll be very surprised to see what real penetration is. And you seemed to have missed the fact that these FBI SWAT teams had four men killed in about 4 minutes right up front, in the very beginning. And there are a lot of .30-06 armor piercing projectiles floating around out there. Put a few of these in a .300 Weatherby at 3600 fps-surprise, guess who ain’t coming home for dinner tonight, or any other night.

        And when we get into the big calibers–.375 H&H,.378 Wetherby, .416 Rigby or Weatherby, .45-70, .460 Weatherby,.50 Alaskan; THE IMPACT OF HEAVY BULLETS IN THESE ROUNDS WIL BREAK ARMS AND LEGS, SHATTER INTERNAL ORGANS, TEARS LIMBS FROM THE BODY

        August 23, 2013 at 6:00 PM

        Vincent: You sissified thing. Do your pink panties have white lace trimming on them? I bet so. Did you see 4 FBI SERT men go down like dogs right of the bat at Waco? Then they sent for a tank. When they could have busted the guy on the street? They were looking for a fight and got their asses kicked, plain and simple. None of that had to happen at all. So Tim got some fertilizer and fuel oil and made one hell of a bomb and delivered it to Oklahoma City. Any body can do what the “true believers” and Tim did-he deserved the needle for sure. Little kids aren’t fair game, usually.

        Now, you get you a .375 H&H magnum rifle and a bunch of 300 grain bullets. Those will tear arms off at 300 yards, shatter internal organs, rupture your heart, liver, and spleen, break arms and legs. Just make a real mess out a head, too. You buy the right books, and you can be a one man army. After all, that’s how armies are made, one man at a time.

        If you want a real hammer, get a .416 Weatherby, .460 Weatherby, or a .505 Gibbs.

        But you gotta want to be a free man, not a FEMA punk. I was an OTR driver, and I’ve seen these military machines they are preparing for some use here in-country. “HOMELAND SECURITY”?? For WHO? Those who want total control, or “just enough so it’ll be peaceful and quiet”? And how much is that? What’s the price?

        IF they’d put this time, money, and effort into grinding these Goddamned street gangs down to dust, this country would be like it was 50 years ago. Yeah, there were some tough spots-there are in every nation-it’s called the human condition. But mostly you could go out at night or for a walk without wondering whether you’ll get jumped or shot. Why do I carry a Smith and Wesson 4″ .44 Magnum revolver? If you have to ask, you’re too stupid to be allowed out of the house by yourself.

        Now, go prepare thyself. None but God knows the future, and He ain’t tellin’. Be a good scout-better safe than sorry, or dead.

            Remember when our troops first went into Iraq? A lot of the troops didn’t even have bullet proof vests, the parents were sending them what they needed from here, paid out of Mom and Dad’s pocket.

            I remember, my sons were there. Both of them. I sent my sons short range private citizen band radios from Radio Shack, because they didn’t have enough radios to talk even within their own command. See my post above. Incidentally, both my sons are Sniper trained. Take it from me. Sleeping pills don’t work for dads, when your only children are being shot at far away.

We are ALL Americans and we must ALL stand togther in order to not have a race riot, but a take back of the government. Back to the days that didn’t happen because the ultra rich didn’t allow it to happen. We have to see through their dribble and make America what it should have been 60 years ago. No race riots, everyone be an America brother or sister and sgtand up for your rights and your neighbors rights. This is the only way to do it. Civility amoung the races will work as long as we do not allow the ultra rich power hungry scum, make us feel differently. They are the ones who hate and they hate everyone.

    What are the American people thinking? Are they thinking? The Obama government is eroding our basic rights as I type. Why are there no reports on the great American ammunition shortage? They can’t take our weapons, but they can take the ammo. I believe that it is the time to remove ALL government members, by force of arms if necessary.

    While I agree that things are going downhill quickly, I do get extremely tired of people focusing only on the current administration. This stuff started long before Obama. Do you really think that any political party is better than another. Politicians are bought and paid for by those whose only motivation is power. That is the long history of humankind. Prepare if you can, but don’t expect that just changing one party for another is going to stop the downward slide. It is all “bread and circuses,” just like throughout history.

    It’s a bit discouraging to see the buildup of police/DHS troops in our country/homeland. We mustn’t forget that the overseas terrorist Muslims see themselves as continuous war with the USA. Perhaps the buildup of the troops is just an over-reaction to what these terrorists can organize and do over here, but many Americans are banking heavily on “security” instead of “freedoms”. So far it does not appear that we have lost too many freedoms although there HAS been steady erosion of the Amendments in the Constitution which is disturbing. The drones flying overhead is a detriment to our freedom to privacy, as our many of the other things being done today. However so far the government SAYS it has been using all this technology to weed out the “bad guys” and I haven’t seen them pick on any of the good guys. And, if there are as many Muslims in this nation and as many terrorist cells as are claimed by some troops, then perhaps all this buildup is truly to quash the fanatical Muslim factions.

      Terrorists-shmerrorists, they’re gearing up for the civil unrest to come. And btw, a great many “good people” have been and still are currently being persecuted by US government on behalf of those who actually run the show. That’s right, it’s the same as it has always been – the money people are in charge.

    Back in 2008 Obama in a speech said:

    “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

    It is well known amongst dictators, the world over, that a private army is necessary to control the great unwashed masses over which they force their rule.

    In 1925 Adolf Hitler formed his own personal bodyguard called the Schutzstaffel (SS). The SS was a major Nazi organization under Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party. The SS grew from a small paramilitary unit to an elite, powerful, force that served as the Fuhrer’s “Praetorian Guard’ the Nazi Party’s “Shield Squadron” and a force with as much political influence as the regular German Armed Forces. Built upon the Nazi racial ideology, the SS, under Heinrich Himmler’s command, is said to be primarily responsible for many of the war crimes perpetrated by the Nazis during World War Two.

    Other countries have, or had, their national security forces. Countries like the old Soviet Union, Cuba, China, North Korea, and Venezuela, and in the past, Hitler’s own “SS,” and let us not forget the Iranian “Revolutionary Guard.” Glancing over this list of nations…did you happen to notice any similarities among them?

      Couldn’t agree more with Williams. We have seen this in Italy for over 20 years and a world war. Mussolini started as a simple politicians, turned into a dictator with his private teams of black shirts, the point is that one of the “legal” loops for justifying this over proliferation of control over the citizens and the creation of a militarized state is always some form of “national emergency” it has been used over and over again throughout history, they come to power and slowly they sneak in special law allowing the establishment more and more power, Obama liberal campaign is just food for electorate, his unlimited detention proposition with “a properly constructed legal framework” is Orwellian at the best. It is abnormal in a democratic state to have such a proliferation of Agencies over and above the state, local and federal law enforcement. There will be always be an emergency that will justify the introduction of new more controlling legislation and more secrecy and lack of accountability this is the key “keep them afraid” they will digest anything. The answer is to stand fast after all statistically anyone has more chances of getting run through by a car than of getting caught in a terrorist act, we had the same experience in Italy in the 60’s and 70’s with the Red Brigades which by the way it came up they were linked to some deviant secret services, so beware of all these threats, they might not be what they appear……my two cents, Luca

    I have been a combat arms soldier and I have been a SWAT officer. A good SWAT team is just as good as the Tier 1 military teams except they don’t get to throw frags or blow buildings up. But in the guns and flashbang room clearing they are equal. I hope that I am never the target of any good team. A poorly trained team will still win but they will pay a higher butcher’s bill to will. But, ALL teams train and plan to win,an individual, no matter how good or a group who are not a trained team WILL lose. So Homeland Security may lose in the long run of an end of democracy scenario due to attrition but you don’t want to be one of their early targets. You will lose! By the way, some of their teams are in the catagory of the Best of the Best.

    We also have a problem here in Australia. There has been an influx of american troops (naval and land based)into the north of this country through the port of Darwin. In excess of 10,000 have arrived ( and was increasing), but the media is no longer reporting anything in regard to this. It is not related to the joint exercise occurring in Queensland at the moment. The media reports that finally started stated that the influx of troops was to provide increased security for Australia in the far north. There has also been reports that the gi’s are being issued with australian regular soldier kit! My spin is that australian troops will not fire on their own people, but I do not know what US troops would do if ordered to fire on australian civilians. Plainly there are problems and “secret squirrel” agendas in both our nations! I love my country, but I do not trust government in any shape or form. Food for thought.

    A HOPEFULLY insightful reply to KAVEMAN:

    There are 2 senarios which will work for the correct answer,…and neither is really good, but here goes:

    senario #1: It is as the Col says, and the Government is building a domestic army to take over our freedom and crush us under a Communist/Socialist DICATORSHIP and our Constitution and Freedoms go out the window. OR….

    senario #2: The Government knows we have only a few more days/weeks/months before the big PONZI scheme is up and the US dollar is toilet paper. When this occurs, the panic and rioting will be horendous due to so many idiots who were too busy getting lattes and playin soccer moms, and being the kool dads at the club. Food and WATER will be out in 4-5 hours from every store and the big cities will go into riots. Since the Drug Gangs are a): ORGANIZED, b): HEAVILY ARMED, & (most importantly)…C): RUTHLESS, they will control entire areas in the big cities until they need to move for food and water. Then we have a BIG problem. Civil War. If you live in a big city, you better have a bugout bag, arms, bike, or dirtbike with plenty gas, and a route worked out. Else you and you sweet family will be toast. Mr. & Mrs. SUBURBIA;….INSTEAD OF BUYING YOUR SPOILED BRATS EVERY GADGET, CLOTHES, & USELESS SHITE,….TAKE THIS LAST REMAINING TIME TO GET YOUR FAMILY READY TO SURVIVE WHAT IS COMING.

    @WILLIAM; Just a minor correction,…the Nazi Party started out without Adolf. He joined early however. The REAL POWER of the early NAZI party was the SA, ie; THE BROWN SHIRTS. Rhom was their leader until Hitler took over, and then when Adolf had the SS built up he executed (pun) the “Night of Long Knives” which he killed the leadership of the SA and disbanded them into the Army,…or into the camps as guards & etc. The WAFFEN/SS became the most rabid NAZIS while the ARMY had taken an oath to the FUEHER personally, and although we can’t understand it,…the German man will usually DIE before breaking his oath. Obama may be building up an army of BROWNSHIRTS,….and I damned sure do not want an SS to get rolling!! LIVE FREE or MAKE the other BASTID DIE TYRING TO ENSLAVE YOU!! How well would the HOLOCAUST gone if EVERY time the GESTAPO, SA, SS, & ARMY came to get the JEWS, CATHOLICS, HOMOSEXUALS, BOSHEVICKS, & ad infinum,..they were met with a guntoting and USING man who said, “I CHOOSE TO DIE FIGHTING WITH MY BOOTS ON!!?” Plus,…Thank GOD I live in TEXAS, we don’t like NOBODY tellin; us what to do,…except maybe in AUSTIN (PUSSTOWN!)

    Having served in the Army, and working as a local law enforcement officer, I can tell you the Colonel is misguided in his rant. The local police are no where near the same type of people that serve in the DHS Police organization. Armored vehicles do serve a purpose in local law enforcement and have been used for DECADES by local police department.

    There are bad people here in the US that like to prey on the ignorant and gullible citizens. These people are bad as any soldier the good Colonel came across in Iraq. They rob stores, invade people’s homes, and kill / injure / rape them all the time. The local law enforcement officers fight these bad people on a daily basis. We are NOT the same as Federal Police. We are shot at and we are killed. There were over 200 officers killed last year in the US.

    Having a Bearcat is a tool we use to help save our lives and I’ve personally seen it in action and know for a fact that I would not be here today if it weren’t for having the armored vehicle to soak up the rounds that were being shot at me. No difference than when I was in Iraq. Does the good Colonel think that we in local law enforcement should not be afforded the same protection as the military? Does he think the bullets shot at us cops here in the US are less lethal than the ones shot at troops in Iraq?

    Maybe the good Colonel should go to police academy, strap on a vest and badge and come work my job for a little while. He’d change his damn tune in a heartbeat. I’ve served in Iraq and now as a police officer in Texas. I can tell you that a bullet will kill you the same here as it will in Iraq. One other point, my department is NOT influenced by Obama or the DHS. MY CHIEF answers to the city manager and mayor. We do what is best for our citizens to keep them and us safe. Not what the federal government says.

    I do NOT believe the DHS needs armored vehicles. Nor do they need billions of rounds of ammo. I know something is amiss and don’t trust ANYTHING that is associated with the federal government. I know the Obama regime is corrupt and this country IS on the brink of collapse. I’m a realist and I keep myself informed, and I’m prepared for the collapse. I just don’t want this dip shit Colonel lumping LOCAL law enforcement in with FEDERAL law enforcement. They are NOT the same, no way, no how. For him to cry about his local law enforcement agency wanting to purchase a tool to keep their officers safe is ridiculous. The local law enforcement are citizens that live I. Your city and work tirelessly to keep it safe for your family AND ours.

    In conclusion, please tell the good colonel to keep his focus in the right place – the federal government, and NOT to confuse us local cops with the federal thugs of the Obama regime.

    Mac Slavo, Kudos for a significant article,
    Hope it’s not too late.
    Homeland Security and other federal deployment are preparing for the day when the United States is paralyzed by an EMP assault from a North Korean satellite already in polar orbit. It would be interesting to know whether FEMA other federal equipment has been hardened against strong electromagnetic pulses. If so, it would tend to corroborate the following theses, especially that of Obama’s playing a key role in bringing down an EMP assault on America.
    Kim Jong-un’s declarations of ability and intent to attack the American homeland are not the vainglorious boasts of a buffoon. With approval and aid from other Comintern agents, who rule Russia and China, and the Comintern’s fifth column at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, North Korea has put a satellite in polar orbit that can launch a devastating EMP attack on the United States. Obama will be able to declare an emergency and impose martial law or its equivalent. His cover story, at least initially, will be that there was was very strong solar flare. How prescient of him to have heavily armed FEMA personnel – and others – deployed at just the time of the flare, which just happens to occur between sessions of Congress. (And precisely when the North Korean satellite is 300 miles above Omaha, Nebraska.)
    If the EMP assault doesn’t happen soon, don’t be fooled. There can be practice deployments and decoy deployments. Repeated deployments without consequence can help insure surprise when Kim Jong-un does push the button set off the flash. Russian armor made repeated runs at the Georgian border, stopped and returned to base. Then they made a run at the border and did not stop. A threat followed by backing off can be a sign of weakness, or it can be a tactic.
    And after the flash the sheeple will rally ’round Obama. They will not know any better, because American officials have universally lacked the brains and guts to investigate his identity (not black) his constitutional eligibility (ineligible from relinquishment of American citizenship in favor of Indonesian naturalization) and his true allegiance (to the Comintern, the international communist conspiracy, never to America).
    Word of this conspiracy should be spread as widely as possible as soon as possible. Even if Congress, the judiciary and others do not investigate Obama in time to expose and remove him before the flash, people will at least know what has happened, not least among them the FEMA, police, military and other personnel whom the cabal seek to misuse to subjugate the American people.

    17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

    Hebrews 11:6

    6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

    this man had his wife and child in the same room he was in plus he was armed and when the shit squad started to break into his home he did what any red blooded American would do, picked up his weapon and was defending what was his. Killed one of the cop’s and am truly sorrow for his family but the police were breaking the law. you don’t try to break into anyone’s home and not expect a reaction. Now they want to try him for capital murder which is Bullshit. This same thing will start happening all over the country, Lock and Load people you could be next
