Obama's National Security Force

    Could this actually happen within four years or is this author just adding up some suspicious activities into an unrealistic conspiracy?

    Is the U.S. government getting ready for a war we don’t know about?

    And, if that’s why Washington is stockpiling massive amounts of ammunition (hollow points, by the way), why is Homeland Security doing the buying instead of the Defense Department?

    I have some theories.

    Many of you will remember a story I broke a long time ago – about presidential candidate Barack Obama’s little-noticed announcement that, if elected in 2008, he wanted to create a “civilian national security force” as big, as strong and as well-funded as the Defense Department.

    Here’s what he actually said at a campaign stop in Colorado July 2, 2008: “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives 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.”

    Could what we see happening now in the Department of Homeland Security be the beginning of Obama’s dream and our constitutional nightmare?

    We’ve learned more about Obama’s vision since then. Maybe it’s time for a review:

    •He made the campaign promise to build this $439 billion domestic army, but all references to the initiative were inexplicably deleted from the copy of his speech posted on his website while others mysteriously disappeared from transcripts of the speech distributed by the campaign. That was strange – and ominous.

    •At the time, I had never heard anyone use the phrase “civilian national security force” before. But I did a little homework and found out where it originated. It was first proposed by then Bush administration Defense Secretary Robert Gates. On that basis alone, I accurately predicted that, if elected, Obama would name Gates as his own defense secretary. Needless to say, when that appointment came to pass, no media outlet bothered to interview me about my foresight.

    •Still during the campaign of 2008, I suggested that what Obama had in mind might be something very sinister indeed – perhaps “some kind of domestic Big Brother program.”

    We never heard another mention of Obama’s “civilian national security force” again. Not in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 or 2012.

    But that brings us up to 2013 and the highly unusual stockpiling of firearms and ammo by Homeland Security – firearms and ammo that Obama would like to deny to ordinary citizens who are not members of his domestic army.

    Well, I hate to say it, but I may have predicted this, too.

    In a Halloween column last fall, I stated that, if re-elected, Obama would “declare a full-scale war on his domestic opposition.”

    I wasn’t joking. I was deadly serious – so serious, in fact, that I did something I pledged I would never do: Vote for Mitt Romney. It was a matter of self-defense and self-preservation. I said then that a second term of Obama might mean we would never see another free and fair election in America. (I’m not even sure we saw one in 2012.) I suggested due process would go the way of the horse and buggy. I said I expected Obama would move to shut down or destroy all independent media. I even speculated that his biggest critics would eventually be rounded up in the name of national security.

    Think about it.

    Why does the civilian Department of Homeland Security need billions of rounds of ammunition?

    This is the agency that is responsible for policing the border. But it doesn’t.

    This is the agency that is responsible for catching terrorists. But it doesn’t.

    So why does Homeland Security need so many weapons and enough hollow-point rounds to plug every American six times?

    Maybe this is the “civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the Defense Department.

    These words – “civilian national security force” – have haunted me ever since I first read them.

    Obama has never explained what he meant.

    He’s never been called to account for that remark.

    Doesn’t this sound like police-state talk to you?

    The U.S. Army alone has nearly 500,000 troops. That doesn’t count reserves or National Guard. In 2007, the U.S. defense budget was $439 billion. No one knows what the budget is today because Congress stopped passing budgets when Obama took office.

    Is Obama serious about creating some kind of domestic security force bigger and more expensive than that? Is this part of his second-term agenda?

    He has also set up, as I have reported, a new homeland security bureaucracy to operate under his own direction.

    I think it’s worth recalling here that just over a year ago both houses of Congress unwisely passed the defense reauthorization bill that killed the concept of habeas corpus – legislation that authorized the president to use the U.S. military to arrest and indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or trial.

    That legislation would empower a lame-duck Obama to use all of the power of the federal government – constitutional and unconstitutional – to target his political enemies.

    If any Republican, conservative, independent journalist, pro-life activist, returning veteran, gun-rights activist, constitutionalist, Bible believer or critic of Obama thinks they will be safe in a second term under this would-be despot, they had better think again – real fast.

    The “civilian national security force” is not here to protect any of them. It’s here to destroy the opposition. It’s here to destroy liberty. It’s here to destroy the Constitution.

  2. Is there no limit to the amount of shitty, paranoid and just plain dumb threads you can start?
  3. You, of all people should thank him...:cool:

    LOL Futurecurrents doesn't understand the forum I create for him to express his (incorrect) views. :D
  5. I think the OP raises some valid concerns. I had the same reaction when obama first startd talking about this stuff. Reminded me of Hugo Chavez and his legions of thugs he sent out to burn newspapers or Tv stations when they opposed him.

    Sadly, republicans seem to lose their ability to think clearly when the words "national security" are murmured.

    I think to realize his dream on this front, Obama will have to find a way to disarm the public. He's taking his gun control plan to the people this week but I don't think that important first step is going to happen.

    I did notice that Home Land Security was going to start patroling streets in (I think) Chicago. What that has to do with terrorism is anyone's guess. It sounds more like the beginnings of creating a presence for people to get used to.
  8. That's true. He does start a lot of stupid AGW denial threads that are fun to play whack-a-mole with.
  9. "a “mock city roughly the size of downtown San Diego” which has been erected recently at the Twentynine Palms military base.

    This is located northeast of San Diego and cost the taxpayer $170 million with the intention of training American military forces to wage urban warfare.

    According to the Marine Corps, the facility boasts a staggering 1,560 buildings."


    The MUTC, or Muscatatuck Urban Training Center, is located in South Central Indiana’s Jennings County, which is near Butlerville.

    According to the official website, operated by the National Guard, it “is a secluded, self contained community, once home to the Muscatatuck State Developmental Center. The 1,000 acre site was turned over to the Indian National Guard in July of 2005 and since has been continually evolving into a full-immersion contemporary urban training environment.”

    The MUTC seems very similar to the new facility being erected outside of San Diego, due to the fact that it boasts a 180 acre reservoir along with an urban environment which includes some 68 major buildings including: a school, hospital, dormitories, light industrial structures, single family dwellings, a dining facility and administrative buildings.

    In total, there is 850,000 square feet of floor space for the military to train on along with an underground utility tunnel system and more than 9 miles of roads and streets.

    MUTC does not only involve the military, indeed they say that it is a consortium which includes governmental, public and private entities who work together in order to give the personnel the most realistic training experience available.
