Skip to comments.Retired Army Officer: DHS Must Surrender Their War Weapons to Dept. of Defense
Posted on 03/25/2013 3:02:34 PM PDT by Repent and Believe
On Saturday March 23, Terry M. Hestilow, a retired Army officer with nearly 30 years of service under his belt, posted this letter he sent to Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) this week. Hestilow wants DHS to hand over their war weapons to the Department of Defense.
Dear Senator Cornyn,
It is with gravest concern that I write to you today concerning the recent appropriation of weapons by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that can only be understood as a bold threat of war by that agency, and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America. To date, DHS has been unwilling to provide to you, the elected representatives of the People, justification for recent purchases of almost 3,000 mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) armored personnel carriers, 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition (with associated weapons), and other weapons systems, when, in fact, the DHS has no war mission or war making authority within the limits of the United States of America.
Significant is the fact that at the same time the Obama administration is arming his DHS for war within the limits of the United States against the People of the United States in accordance with his 2008 campaign speech claiming,
We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that weve set. Weve gotta (sic) have a civilian national security force thats just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded [as the United States military]Candidate Barack Obama, 2008.
The Obama administration is deliberately defunding, overextending, and hollowing the Department of Defense; the only legitimate agency of the U.S. government with a war mission.

I emailed Cornyn and requested a public response to the letter.
I agree with the retired officer. Obama is exactly what the last USMC CG Gen stated. Obama relieves general officers who do not praise his screwed up ego. Our enemy is the Obama Admin.
I’ll bet his guy gets some IRS audits, including cavity searches, over the next few years. He has poked the dragon and gotten its attention.
I guarantee this patriot is now on the “no fly” list.
I bet the DHS is playing Obama for a fool all along, Janet is going to pull a coup upon the Whitehouse.
DHS is up arming NOT against Americans but to roll right up to the Whitehouse and take over the nation, arresting Obama and Biden in the process.
nope. she ain’t removing anyone. she’l be keeping him ensconced.
That would mean a lot of local, state, and federal police would lose a lot of their toys.
Some excellent comments at the link.
I’m sitting here hoping you just forgot the “/s” tag after the statement and you don’t REALLY believe that...
That’s like saying Napolitano is actually a closet Patriot...
No I think she is a power hungry sexually mis-orientated individual who has enough power to steal Washington DC away from Obama so she can have all the same or more perks Obama has had. Even pit bulls turn against their masters.
And boa constrictors.
Or pet baboons.
Actually, if this guy wants to tell all of Obama’s goons to go hell, I will go back him up. It’s time. And he is right.If the goons don’t relinquish this property to the DOD, then they have declared war on America.
That’s it. And it needs to be stopped now, unless they are going to arrest Obama and Holder, and we can’t count on that.
Wow...You ARE serious!!!
You know, even in my wildest conspiracy scenarios, I NEVER would have come up with that one.
But if we’re to have this discussion...no, I don’t see it. She’s a toady, a boot lick. They love this assclown.
This one was on Drudge tonight. We’ve seen some of this before.
