Guest Post: The Coming Civil Unrest
by Grayfox 114
Recently MSO News correspondent Valerie posted a link regarding the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and their preparations for expected “civil unrest” during the coming presidential elections. The article indicated that DHS was looking for equipment to outfit approximately 150 officers. While this article is a little shocking, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that closely follows the news, at least alternative news. As this was not “new news” to me, I posted on her site telling her this, and mentioning a post I sent a month or so ago regarding information I had on “expected civil uprisings” this summer. I then received a post from Rourke inviting me to do a post, and this is it.
Any article on civil unrest has to start with the Department of Homeland Security. This organization was created in 2002, following the 9-11 disaster, and was envisioned as a stand alone domestic anti terrorism unit, dedicated to the protection of American citizens on American soil against terrorist attacks. Since inception, DHS has taken over the management and operation of 22 different federal agencies, including the Border Patrol (ICE), FEMA, Federal Protection Service, Department of Agriculture and many other agencies. With each acquisition, DHS has become more powerful and omnipotent, until today it is an organization without peer in the government. Below is the DHS mission statement, taken directly from their website:
The Department’s mission is to ensure a homeland that is safe, secure, and resilient against terrorism and other hazards. Our efforts are supported by an ever-expanding set of partners. Every day, the more than 240,000 men and women of the Department contribute their skills and experiences to this important mission. Our duties are wide-ranging, but our goal is clear: a safer, more secure America.
