Homeland Security Monitoring IRS Protests

In a move sure to exacerbate tensions between limited government advocates and the increasingly unwieldy government they’re advocating against, officers of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) were dispatched to multiple “Tea Party” rallies this week.

In a move sure to exacerbate tensions between limited government advocates and the increasingly unwieldy government they’re advocating against, officers of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) were dispatched to multiple “Tea Party” rallies this week.

No cavity searches were conducted … and no junk was touched (so far as we know). But Big Brother was definitely keeping an eye on the proceedings …

Ready for the irony? These rallies were organized in response to the ongoing scandal at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) – which earlier this month admitted targeting limited government groups.

So let’s get this straight … the “land of the free” flagrantly violates the liberties of those championing liberty, and then sends armed minions to harass them when they exercise their right to complain?

What a country …

According to The Blaze, DHS officers appeared at protest rallies in Florida, Illinois and Indiana and Missouri, among other states (in fact if you want to see some great pics from these rallies, check out this post from Gateway Pundit).

“God bless America …”

The federal government does all kinds of questionable things to all kinds of organizations, especially during protests or other public activities, peaceful or otherwise. Nothing new, other than the fact that they were a bit more overt about it in this instance.

This is the comatose complacency of white suburban America which, conditioned by endless propaganda emanating from the establishment media, Congress, and WH occupants, that it can’t happen here.

However, there is news for suburban America – it can ‘happen here’, and it is ‘happening here’. Foreclosures, like some monstrous smelly ooze, are now seeping into the suburbs. Nearly eight hundred thousand Americans lost their homes in 2012. Foreclosures are running at a rate of which is eight times higher than it was in 2005; and nearly five and a half million households are behind with mortgage payments so it won’t be long before they are foreclosed as well.

Behind this, of course, is the unemployment rate which is not the government lie of 7.5% but 23% per cent (see http://www.shadowstats.com ) with nearly double that rate for young people. No wonder the suburbs are getting edgy!

Indeed, they are starting to shiver as they realise that their jobs have been exported (56,000 manufacturing business have gone since 2001) and are not coming back; that advances in technology are smashing out even more jobs; and that the suicide rate (37,000 Americans kill themselves each year) has jumped so that it surpasses even that of the 1930s Depression.

Moreover, consumer credit, at exorbitant interest rates, has shot up to 2.8 trillion dollars as families borrow in the desperate attempt to stay afloat; student loan debt is over one trillion dollars; the number of people on food stamps exceeds the population of Spain; and, simply, the USA is no longer the economic powerhouse that it once was -back in 2001, the U.S. economy accounted for 31.8% of global GDP but, by 2011, it was down to 21.6%.

Some Americans, of course, know that the current national debt is nearing $17 trillion which is around 110% percent of GDP; that the Federal Reserve Bank is panic-stricken and is printing $85 billion a month; and that there is a rumor that some tiny place called Cyprus has given the Russians a thorough hiding and a good thing too.

Unfortunately the suburbs are failing to understand that the USA, when its banks collapse again, is committed to exactly the same course of action as happened in Cyprus where 100% of deposits in one bank have been confiscated and, in the other, it’s 60%, and rising….

However, in the case of the USA, there is the proviso that it is likely that pension and retirement accounts will be confiscated rather than bank deposits. The reason is that the pension accounts amount to an easily-taken government bonanza of $18.5 trillion.

“Nonsense!”, shout the Snarks, the foul mouthed typical white male who is happy to toss snarky comments at his false perception of the world he was told that exists. “It can’t happen here!”, he cries out between shots, tokes, and snarky comments at those who do not see his convoluted world he lives in…

So why has the American Homeland Security Agency purchased two billion (that’s two billion, folks) expanding dum-dum bullets illegal under international law because of the horrible injuries that they cause? The HSA is not the Pentagon engaged in endless wars abroad: it is responsible for security inside the boundaries of the USA and the word ‘security’ means that it intends shooting American citizens.

The fact is that things are bad in America and they are only going to get worse. Just as entire countries in Europe are going bust, so economic disaster is coming to the USA and the suburbs will be smashed.

There is a remarkable analysis by Dimitry Orlov, first published in 2006 and now updated to be found at . It gives the evidence that the former USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) was better prepared for collapse than the USA now is and that, when the USSR and USA are compared, a sudden collapse of the USA is even more likely than it was for the USSR.

To take but one aspect discussed by Orlov, the economic collapse of the USSR did not result in a flood of refugees because everybody, instead of being foreclosed out of their houses, simply stayed put. Contrast that with the USA where foreclosure means that you are out in the street or living in a car….

Federal Protective Services is under DHS. Federal Protective Service is a federal law enforcement agency that provides integrated security and law enforcement services to federally owned and leased buildings, courthouses, facilities, properties and other assets, as well as the personnel associated with them.

Primary Protective Services:

Conducting Facility Security Assessments

Designing countermeasures for tenant agencies

Maintaining uniformed law enforcement presence

Maintaining armed contract security guards

Performing background suitability checks for contract employees

Monitoring security alarms via centralized communication centers

Additional Protective Services

Conducting criminal investigations

Sharing intelligence among local/state/federal

Protecting special events

Working with FEMA to respond to natural disasters

Offering special operations including K-9 explosive detection

Training federal tenants in crime prevention and Occupant Emergency Planning

Americans are unwise to assume that it can’t ‘happen here’.

They are monitoring the Tea Party Groups to make sure they don’t take away good union jobs and over-time pay from the sanitation workers. Those Tea Party people are NOTORIOUS for leaving a venue cleaner than they found it!

Big Brother is watching? The one, true, real Big Brother right now in America is Facebook. It is being used by the government and law enforcement. It records your every voluntary move and action because you are foolish to tell the world what you are doing. Who would give up their privacy so freely? Only about 800 million people ! PS I don’t belong to Facebook.
