Police Arming for War against Veterans

Not only has the Obama administration waged war on our veterans through the VA Scandal, now there is whole new front of attack on our veterans we have to worry about.

In a terrifying news report on the militarization of our police forces – watch as a veteran officer of the Indiana police remarks that police are having to prepare for returning veterans with the ability to make IED’s (Improvised Explosive Devices).

That’s right. One of the reasons our police forces are giving for having to become more like military forces is the soldiers returning home from the front.

It’s scary watching our police forces become militarized… but it’s even scarier to hear some of their reasons for doing so. Crime, including violent crime, has been dropping across the country over the last 30 years, yet somehow this police officer believes that crime has gotten worse since he’s become a cop?

It’s reasoning just like his that is militarizing our police… and it’s a dangerous precedent to set.

So while local police forces all over the country are militarizing – the President of the United States is simultaneously pushing hard to take guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens… because “weapons of war don’t belong on our streets.”

In fact, while the President and the Pentagon pour these powerful military weapons onto our streets, they are demanding that we turn in weapons that are much weaker by contrast. Interestingly, the President seems to believe that our semi-automatic rifles have no place on the street, but he has no problem when local police forces get much stronger and deadlier weapons to use against us.

We shouldn’t stop there. We should restore the ban on military-style assault weapons and a 10-round limit for magazines. And that deserves a vote in Congress — because weapons of war have no place on our streets, or in our schools, or threatening our law enforcement officers. Our law enforcement officers should never be out-gunned on the streets.

Our founders endlessly debated the idea of a standing military force. In the end it was deemed necessary. Can you imagine how irate they would be to learn that today’s America has MULTIPLE standing militaries? The military, our police, and dozens of federal agencies are all now well equipped to control us… if need be.

I don’t want to sound like someone with a brain-load of conspiracy theories… BUT… if we’ve learned anything over the last few years it’s that we can’t trust our government.

So does it sound wise to give up our means of protecting ourselves (the 2nd Amendment) while at the same time watching our government arm all of its different agencies to the teeth?

I don’t think so.

  • JoeGoldner

    NOT ONE VETERAN SHOULD EVER VOTE FOR A DEMOCRAT AGAIN!! AS THEY THE DEMOCRATS DECLARED WAR ON OUR MILITARY AND OUR VETERANS!

    • glop

      Don’t you know the votes from our own men and women in service overseas was blocked? It wouldn’t surprise me a bit if they tried the same thing with our veterans right here in our Country. We need strong and true GOD-fearing people in our Congress who stand up for the Constitution, our service men and women and ALL rights of the citizens.

    • seeymour kleerly

      Wasn’t it Bush/Cheney who created the horrible numbers of maimed young Americans?

      • JoeGoldner

        Actually more Americans were killed or wounded during Obama years from Afganistan , Obama’s war. Either way we should be able to take care of them all, we did that in every other war since WW2.

        • seeymour kleerly

          Yikes! 4500 dead American troops from Iraq and 30,000 more maimed! Obama was a congressmen in Chicago when we went to Afganistan and only FINALLY gave the generals the troops they need when he became president!

          • JoeGoldner

            You are a little bit off on your facts, Obama was a State Senator who always voted present on an issue except when it comes to killing babies, he supported that. Plus Obama ran on the fact that Iraq was the wrong war and Afganistan was the right war and since he became President more soldiers were killed and or wounded then Iraq in a shorter period of time.His policies also made it easier for Iran and Al-Qaeda to take over Iraq when he violated a agreement to leave some troops in Iraq to help keep Iraq secure. Obama who by the way about was going on with the VA back in 2008, plus the fact he also had control of the House and the Senate did absolutely nothing.

          • seeymour kleerly

            I hope you’re just spinning and misinformed! Especially there are a few LIES in your post.

          • JoeGoldner

            Obama’s and the Democrats record speaks for itself, they hate the military and our heroes the veterans. AND NO VETERAN SHOULD EVER VOTE FOR A DEMOCRAT AGAIN.

          • seeymour kleerly

            I assume you’re admitting lies in your original post. Would you like to discuss them?

          • JoeGoldner

            Once again Obama lied to the American people in his statement today on the VA. he knew for years, had the power to correct and or fix the problem and did absolutely nothing. When veterans started dying and even some of the democrats started to abandon Obama that is when he made a statement and he once again did the exact same thing as he did with the other scandals. IRS, Benghazi, Obamacare etc , wait until IG finishes their investigation and then watch nothing will happen just like the others. This is the MO of Obama and the Democrats, SCREW THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THIS NOVEMBER THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL RESPOND BY VOTING OUT ALL THE DEMOCRATS.

          • seeymour kleerly

            Bush/Cheney overloaded the system with 30,000 maimed young Americans! That’s the real problem.

          • JoeGoldner

            Of course once again the progressives and the democrats are blaming Bush. By the way under Bush it was only about 89,000 veterans involved now it is our 89 million this year alone in claims. Imagine what it is going to look like with Obamacare involved. This is a disaster and Obama who ran on it back in 2008 did absolutely nothing.

  • Gary

    The American people will soon be able to purchase Abram A1-M1 tanks, shoulder held missiles and large anti-police terrorist destroying weapons. These weapons will be available at low cost and will not be taxed.

    America will be grabbing weapons from all government run agencies and taking back the power to initiate martial law against this current government.

    • DetroitDom

      I wish you were correct Gary. This administration and the liberal voters that blindly support it scare the crap out of me!!!

      • Diesel Driver

        DetroitDon I think he means buying them with the 5 finger discount. Seems like a good idea.

        • DetroitDom

          Ahhhhh – in that case, more power to all who are willing to defend this country and our Constitution by any means necessary!!

  • Carrie Barton

    Were not stupid, you guys are coming after the American people. And yes you will take our guns away. You fake American.

    • rivahmitch

      They can only “take our guns away” if we let them. Then again, those who are unwilling to kill and die to preserve their rights, freedoms and property will surely and deservedly lose them. It’s better to die on your feet than to live on your knees. Semper Fi!

  • Mark Tallman

    Be VERY scared! Barack HUSSEIN Obama is following the Hitler playbook. He will NEVER allow the 2016 election to take place.

    Do not say, “That can’t happen here.” After years of warning about Hitler from people like me, they were called extreme, lampooned in the media, ridiculed and laughed at. German Jews said, “That can’t happen here.” How did that work out for them?

    • bbarnicle

      …he won’t, especially after the result of this Nov.’s midterms.

  • Robert Myles

    This is a totally unnecessary move on the part of our local Police Department’s. This is not to “Protect and Serve” but to “Intimidate and Kill”. This is the very thing our Founder’s warned us about and it scares the hell out of me to see it happening right before my eyes

  • smogdew

    The people in the US could watch Obama kill 100 Americans by firing squad and not do one thing about it. You can’t be so stupid you didn’t see this (and worse) coming – yet not one person with the ability to, will go for impeachment. As they say – you get what you ask for…….If you think God is going to stop this, He won’t – you’re all at ‘play’ when you should be pleading for His help.

  • Robert Myles

    The illegal speaks once more about KILLING American’s by any means possible. There are a few things he has said that are TRUE and those things are the ones that scare the hell out of me. Our Constitution does not allow for what he is doing yet our so called Representatives in Washington sit idly by and allow him to blatantly violate that sacred Document. The time for a major house cleaning and a change in the Executive Branch by any means necessary is coming at us like a freight train

  • magic1114

    These people would like to think that the American people are completely caught up in things like “American Idol” not paying attention to what’s happening around them. I can assure them that that’s not the case. The low information types might be, but I don’t include myself with that lot.

    • darylj46

      Magic1114, you like me are not one of them but 95% of this country are and that is very scary. It angers me to how stupid Americans are today and no common sense. Wether people want to admit it or not that Obama and our communist government is going to dictator rule America. For the love of God, people wake up as when it happens that the turn around is almost impossible.

    • glop

      I did not like “American Idol” from its onset, and don’t subscribe to any TV programs. I use my set for movies that I want to watch. Most everything on the tube is trash now-a-days.

  • KingofBeers

    Oh brother, here we go again…Obama’s coming for our guns! America supports a ban on assault weapons, and a limit on magazine capacity, and yes, horror of horrors, background checks. Grow up.

    • Bp. David

      Queen of the Beer Gut–Thorry, Thweetie Pie, I gueth nobody here even wanth to dignify that lame comment with a rethponth! Tho go find the Georgie Thoroth Leftie Loonie page, Queenie.

    • yaki534

      So, Seems you don’t believe that Obama is after our weapons, huh? You must be a special kind of stupid if that is what you believe.

      • KingofBeers

        No, I don’t believe it. If I’m stupid, that makes you less than an amoeba.

        • yaki534

          Yep, you ARE a special kind of stupid. Go drink your kool-aid and sit down.

          • KingofBeers

            Typical right wing comment…childish and immature. You’ve got nothing.

        • krewl

          i wonder what king of beers listens to.what credability must they have.i hope he tells us where he learns his talking points

      • bbarnicle

        The illegal act of Obama/Kerry in signing the UN Small Arms Treaty…very MUCH takes away our guns. It’s one of the reasons U.S. citizens are justifiably disturbed. Illegal acts that take away our rights are BIG and require justice. The military needs to restore our rights since our elected politicians are actively taking them away.

    • DetroitDom

      King Of Beers – read this and provide me an explanation as to WHY non-military/ defense need these weapons? This is NOT the first story I’ve seen about this.

      ALL CONSERVATIVES – READ THIS!!!!! The Dept. Of Agriculture is locking and loading.

      http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/submachine-gun-usda-buy/2014/05/17/id/571905/?ns_mail_uid=1897355&ns_mail_job=1569634_05172014&promo_code=2q3bccq9

      • KingofBeers

        You think I place one ounce of credibility in a right wing yellow journalism piece of trash like News Max? ROTFL! Why not just quote Rush, or Hannity? Sheesh!

        I suppose if police wear Kevlar you believe that’s another gun grab?

        Obama had a better record on gun rights than Romney, but I bet I can guess who you voted for?

        Open your mind and do a search of something like…

        “The lies and distortions committed by News Max.”

        • DetroitDom

          Where’s your proof that it’s a lie?

          • KingofBeers

            I didn’t read the article. News Max is not a reliable source of news…do a search.

          • DetroitDom

            HYPOCRITE!!

            You tell everyone who disagrees with you to do research on ANYTHING you don’t like, but you make comments about an article you didn’t even read??

            And I suppose I should believe everything coming out of your President and his adminstration’s mouths?? “The attack on Benghazi was caused by a movie against Islam.” PULLEASE!!

            Wasting my time with you.

          • KingofBeers

            Then stop responding to my posts. I won’t lose any sleep over not reading your ignorant comments. If you truely wanted the truth about Benghazi, you could find it, but you prefer the world of imaginary scandals and falsehoods.

            40….count them….40 other nations in the world had protests related to the video. Now, at the time Susan Rice spoke, we only had the CIA points for reference, which only later turned out to be in error. Libya refused to release the video of the attack at Benghazi, until after Rice spoke! Once we saw the video, we realized there were no protests leading up to the attack. You tell me how that implicates Rice, Clinton or Obama?

            And News Max has had to apologize in the past for lying. If I want fantasy, I’ll pick up the latest Stephen King.

          • NMMad

            Right on DetroitDom! KingofBeers needs to crawl out of Obamas pocket and open his eyes! Typical leftist response to everything they don’t like. Just call it “Right Wing” lies and that makes it untrue. The only thing that will wake them up is when the brown-shirts are on their front porch.

          • DetroitDom

            Unfortunately, we’ll be in the same cages as them, if we’re not killed first defending our country and Constitution.

            They’ll still think everything is OK on their way to the “showers”.

        • steveafrikaner

          troll or idiot

          • KingofBeers

            Then prove me wrong, and I’ll issue a public apology to you in this forum.

        • RECMANMC

          King of Beers, I agree with you that Newsmax is unreliable, but when I see something like this, I do more research. The only “news”organizations that I found reporting this were right-wing blogs. The Washington Times did report it, quoting Breitbart. Perhaps those paranoid right wingers haven’t heard that USDA Forest Service has a big problem keeping marijuana growers from using Forest Service lands and some of these are dangerous.

          • KingofBeers

            Appreciate the comment. I simply don’t believe having a well armed police force is indicative of Armageddon. Pot farms are often defended, especially if it’s a large scale operation with roots in organized crime. It would be foolhardy for our Nat. Forest Service to walk in unarmed. Besides, pot will soon be legalized across the nation, taking another chunk out of the crime world. I didn’t read the link. I have my standards.

  • ChaplainPeter

    Did you hear ” the CDC is to study and find out what causes violence.” I shall now interpret the code; Bibles; esp. people who really believe it is the final authority in one’s life. The Bible causes mental illness; Homophobia; pro life syndrome, Islamophobia. It also gives their believers an utopia delusion of grandeur; the resurrection of the dead, absolute truth, sin, eternal damnation to those who will not believe in their King; Lord Jesus. Fornication is not allowed, marriage is only for man and woman. These maladies are the real cause of all the devil’s problems. Aren’t you glad you are a Bible believing Christian. I sure am.

    Well, we were warned about this in 2008, but we elected the Tyrant in Chief anyway.

    “We cannot continue to rely only 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 is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” ~ Barack Obam 2008

    • swede41

      Buzg you are right we were warned but The lame brained Liberals and their smoke and false promises fooled too many Americans who were too eager to abandon self respect and responsibility and patriotism and listened to this Muslim.and now “WE THE PEOPLE” are paying the price..America better wake up and fast because if not “THE GESTAPO IS COMING.

    Posse comitatus (from Wikipedia): “The original provision was enacted as Section 15 of chapter 263, of the Acts of the 2nd session of the 45th Congress.

    Sec. 15. From and after the passage of this act it shall not be lawful to employ any part of the Army of the United States, as a posse comitatus, or otherwise, for the purpose of executing the laws, except in such cases and under such circumstances as such employment of said force may be expressly authorized by the Constitution or by act of Congress… ”

    There was a reason “We, The People” chose to deny the Federal Government use of our standing Armies against ourselves (of course, that implies that the Federal Government obeys the Constitution). This manning up is simply the equivalent of an “Executive Order” to bypass posse comitatus.

  • GRAMPA

    What these government agencies fail to look at is while the immediate threat is there from a shock point of view. The people adapt and respond and they defeat any threat. These weapons need maintenance parts and fuel. Who will train these people in the abilities and use? Our vets already know what these units can do they know there limitations and weaknesses. They will find they are not up against a third world force.
    They may have advantage against a single household and maybe a second time. Soon however the people will not stand for it and they will retaliate. The other is the law enforcement officers themselves. We will always see people who will do anything they are told. The majority will see that the ones they are required to fire on is the ones they swore to defend. They will be family and friends and they will refuse. Our government is arming all its agiencies but they may know how to shoot a gun will they be able to function as an organized group? The ammo they are given is used only to kill. It is not even the type approved for war. Why would be ordered for use against American citizens? I have many questions that need answers but we will not get them from our government. We have lost our government.

    • SuperDave2

      • GRAMPA

        I would prefer that while this may be necessary. Wouldn’t it be better to have many on the inside that we could depend on to provide intel and thin the ranks that would actually fire on the citizen. The problem as I see it is telling the difference. They must have people, people have families and friends All of which may be used. The more working for these agencies that are on our side the better. After we are doing nothing wrong for we are only concerned citizens working for the government.

  • Leijona

    The increase in Violence is coming from the increase in oppression, and the Increase of Islam. Do these Law enforcement agencies ever ask why? or do they just execute, like robots?

    This is the very scary thing about groups like Delta Force. They are given a directive to take out a target, no questions asked. Look at Ruby Ridge. What “Normal” sort of human would shoot a woman standing in a doorway holding her baby?

    • info warrior

      Uh, no.. it’s called PTSD.

      • WrinkledThought

        Once again, “info warrior” is making ignorant claims. The officer that shot the woman in the doorway was not a combat veteran. He was a high school graduate from El Paso, Texas that went into the police academy and had zero real time combat experience in the armed forces.

      • europadopa

        You sir seem to be suffering from ptsd . . . people talking stupidly delirious

    • steveafrikaner

      Ruby Ridge was an FBI cock-up! Delta Force is an elite special forces unit

      • Leijona

        I know that. The point I was trying to make is the disconnect. Special forces units are often sent to take someone out without any knowledge about why they are doing so. They are simply obeying orders.

  • info warrior

    Perhaps it would be a good idea to bar combat veterans from serving as law enforcement at home. There’s been too many deranged veterans going postal.

    • Leijona

      Do you have facts to back this up? Thanks.

    • krewl

      or has the term postal derived from civilian union employees harsh warlike behavior

    • Al Chemist

      How many combat veterans serving as LEO have gone postal?

    • WrinkledThought

      That is probably the most ignorant claim I’ve read today. The statistics do not support any wisp of your anecdotal conjecture. It degrades your assertion you are an “info warrior”.

This has nothing to do with Vets, NO, it’s OB and his Commie/Muslim/NWO/DemoRat criminal cronies that are the Problem….AND THESE SOB’S BETTER REALIZE THAT EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTALBE FOR THEIR TREASONOUS ACTS…!!!! OAS start this past weekend and Phase 1 of “We the People” taking our Nation back has started…PEOPLE its now or Never, and don’t let the Commie/Cronies tell you that it failed because they are wrong! They make stupid statements like only 10 to 100 people showed-up…WRONG, thousand had come and are still coming, “We the People” are not leaving until OB, Biden, Holder, Reid, Polosi, McConnell, and Boehner are gone…PERIOD..!!! OB started this Civil War II back on Oct 13, 2013 at the WWII Vet Memorial when he sent his Military Police after disabled Vets at the WWII Vet Memorial and at the WH…!!! The American People better wake-up and fast, OB has already declared War on “We the People” and OB’s Military Police are already killing innocent American Citizen allover our Nation for no other reason then to kill (mostly Conservatives) to gain control and brainwash the People to follow orders while there homes are invaded, Guns are illegally confiscated, and you and your family ar marched right into the nearest Fema re-education Camp…!!! God Help us, PLEASE!

  • libertycall

    In Cokey Roberts book “Founding Mothers”, she quotes a British general during the revolution complaining that even if the British killed all American patriot men they would still have the women to contend with.

    In my opinion, if there ever is a violent uprising in the US, those military type arms and vehicles will not wind up on the side of an overbearing and oppressive government…not around small town police departments and sheriff’s offices. Maybe in large metro areas and in California, they would be on the government’s side.

  • CountryBoy

    We need to disarm the Democrats as THEY are the PROBLEM….

    If ANYBODY has been paying attention… ALL of these mass shooters have eilther been Democrats or their parents were Democrats.

    The Aurora shooter — a registered Democrat.
    The Arapahoe High School shooter — voiced Socialist Democrat views.
    The Columbine shooter’s parents — were registered Democrats.
    The Virgina Tech shooter —- was a registered Democrat.
    The Sandy Hook shooter’s mother — was a registered Democrat.
    The Boston Bombers — campaigned for Obama.
    The Maryland mall shooter was a begrudged liberal who had personal issues affecting his happiness.

    Liberalism is based on emotion and therefore Liberalism is a Mental Disorder….

    I am posting from South Africa. Here the police can’t hit the side of barn door, if they were standing in the barn! In the old days at the Cape Town Combat Club, bored police used to rock up regularly. We used to offer them the lone of guns and ammunition, and then fell about laughing at their ineptitude. We used to consider head shots with a .45acp at 50 yards to be a minimum requirement. How good are the average cops in America?

    • SuperDave2

      Steve, Lately, the only thing our cops can seem to hit are un-armed civilians. Give them an armed opponent & most will pee their shorts & cry like a little girl!

  • NMMad

    Every American needs to wake up and do everything we can to defeat the liberals in every election! This fall and then turn our attentions to the 2016 elections. But beware that if OB sees that his hand-picked successor (probably Hillary) is headed for defeat, he will do whatever he can to keep that from happening. Just like he said “I will use the power of the pen and the power of the phone”. He doesn’t think ANYTHING is beyond his reach! I pray every day that God does something to save our country before it goes the way of Hitler’s Germany.

  • Diane

    Operation American Spring is happening right now in DC. Get you butts down there and help! They are staying until Obama is out of the White House and need as many people as possible taking turns coming down and staying off and on a few days or as long as possible the keep the crowds as big as possible. The news networks isn’t covering it of course no doubt on orders from Obama but true Patriots are there and need your help!

    • bealman

      You’re correct on the American Spring. I picked it up on international news. You will not see it on AP releases, and no one in the business care to investigate it.
      Recently, hundreds demonstrated in front of the WH, flags and banners demanding the impeachment of the Chief Liar. It was reported that they hope to have as many as 20 million to 30 million, 10% of population at the Spring. America need that, and the parties need to understand that the citizens are aware of the BS that BHO is doing worldwide. If you have additional info on Spring, put on the net or YouTube. In Fact, most of what is happening in the world is not shown on American news. Almost nothing!! http://www.1TV.ru, try it.

      • Diane

        I’m glad you knew about Operation American Spring. I have seen comments for outside America so I knew it is being covered in other countries. All the comments I’ve seen from them have been for us getting rid of Obama so they know very well the harm he is doing all over the world. Live Stream link for………..Operation American Spring

    I didn’t author this, but it’s AWESOME!!

    In 1865 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President.

    In 1881 a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President, who later died from the wound.

    In 1963 a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President.

    In 1975 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President.

    In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, President.

    In 1984 James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a McDonalds’ restaurant.

    In 1986 Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office.

    In 1990 James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.

    In 1991 George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat, shot & killed 23 people in a Luby’s cafeteria.

    In 1995 James Daniel Simpson, a disgruntled Democrat, shot & killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory.

    In 1999 Larry Asbrook, a disgruntled Democrat, shot & killed 8 people at a church.

    In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President.

    In 2003 Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant.

    In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech.

    In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others.

    In 2011 a registered Democrat named James Holmes, went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.

    In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis.

    In 2013 a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people in a school in Newtown, CT.

    As recently as Sept 2013, an angry Democrat shot 12 at a Navy ship yard.

    Not one NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservative was involved in any of these shootings and murders (except as a target!). How do we know? Because if they were, the media would still be talking about it.

    SOLUTION: It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns, including government personnel!!

    Let me guess, King Of Stupidity will argue this e-mail because he didn’t see video of Lincoln being shot.

        Surely not all of it. Be specific KoS,

        • KingofBeers

          For one thing, all those ancient democrats would be republicans today. Our two major parties switched ideologies, when the Dixiecrats left the Democratic Party because they didn’t want civil rights legislation passed. Besides, what proof do we have all these shootings were by left wingers? I guess were just supposed to accept it as truth? “Radical left wing socialist” shot Kennedy? Who says?

            A Communist by definition is as Far to the Left as anyone can go. Do yourself a little bit of realism and look it up for yourself. Why are you such a little brained person? If you know the truth and disregard it then you are a fool not me.

          • KingofBeers

            You’re quite right, my apologies. Communism is considered extreme left wing, and Fascism is considered extreme right wing. Too bad you had to resort to insults to make your point.

          • Retired MSgt USAF

            Then start thinking with that Brainwashed brain of yours and start thinking Logically. You deserved it do to your brain working in automatic Democrat Mode. That still makes you a non-thinking fool.

          • KingofBeers

            Sorry, Sarge…what have republicans done for you? Nothing. Look at the gun issue…Reagan banned California citizens from carrying guns in public. Sarah Palin disarmed brigade members of the Alaska state defense. Romney signed a ban on assault weapons. Obama doesn’t think you need a 30 round capacity magazine, yet you honestly believe Obama is coming for your guns?! Talk about brainwashed?!

          • Karen.in.Texas

            And, DIXIECRATS never left the DEMOCRAT PARTY.!! They still vote DEMOCRATIC and always will, till they die! I know, I live in Tx and our Dixiecrats will tell you they vote for Democrats and CANNOT be persuaded otherwise. And Tx is not part of the Dixie states.
            True Democrats, even LBJ himself, were against the Civil Rights, but pressured by public opinion, he signed The Civil Rights Act of 1964.
            Do some research in the public library of newspaper articles of that time.
            True that some Democrats, like my parents, switched parties. But, it was because they agreed with the Civil Rights Act, not because they were against it.
            But, Democrats who were against Civil Rights, stayed true to the party, even when disliking the idea of a black man as Pres, they surely did not want a woman. So, they still voted for our current POTUS over Hillary, then again voted Dem against that “old white man” as Liberals would say of M. Romney.
            Chew on this info a bit!

          • KingofBeers

            Texas seceded from the United States on Febuary 1st, 1961, and joined the confederacy. Any decent set of encyclopedias will explain how the dixiecrats left the Democratic Party over the civil rights issue. P.S. Obama and Hillary did not run against each other for president, just for party nomination. There are always exceptions to the rule.

      • Libertarian Tom

        No King, it hasn’t been discredited. MSNBC is not a news source. They’re the ones that edited George Zimmermans 911 call. The only thing he forgot was the Columbine shooting was carried out by 2 teens who’s parents were Democrats. I will take exception with a few thing he posted, 1) Adam Lanza- there is over-whelming evidence that the Newtown school shooting was a drill. The Obama administration believe they could use the public outrage to disarm America.
        What I’m going to say next is only my opinion, so do not take it as fact, but I think the only reason this administration broke it’s promise to bring home our troops, is because they can’t have 100’s of thousands of combat veterans at home when he declares Marshal Law, and begins rounding up his “enemies”, otherwise known as the T.E.A. Party, Conservative’s, or those who believe in the Constitution.

    • DetroitDom

      Did everyone see KOBs post below? He said the info above that I posted has already been discredited, so you can ignore it.

      BTW: He also said the:
      – blame for Benghazi on Obama and his administration was discredited.
      – the attack on 9/11 was/ is Bush’s fault.
      – stories about the Fed agencies purchasing ammo and weapons is untrue.
      – it was the rancher’s fault that the Federal Gov’t showed up with armed men instead of simply placing a lien on the rancher’s property for money owed.

      You can add anything else that contradicts common sense and covers the backside of the idiot currently holding office in the WH.

    This Law Enforcement ideology of openly declaring targeting of returning US veterans, because they have assorted levels of knowledge and expertise with war fight abilities is a national shame! These veterans are the only ones that have stepped forward to dedicate their very lives to keep this “Screwed Up” country safe. Just because our politicians want to change the foundation of this country from the “Land of Liberty” to a socialistic Islamic country of no freedom under the chains of oppression where our national, state, country and city police blindly follow directive, from “Rulers” using the excuses used by the Nazi at the war crimes trials in 1945 & 1946. “We were following Orders” What a cop out. These type cops are going to be very shocked when they cross paths with some real hardcore type veterans, that won’t be intimidated by anyone.

  • dstudie

    This cop is a total low life egg sucking liar. He’s just the kind of leftist fascist pig that will soon be murdering innocent American civilians by the order of the WH if he isn’t stopped. He doesn’t care anything for the Constitution. He doesn’t care anything for people or life. He is a miserable failure as a cop so he has to rely on weapons of war to outgun and bully anyone he comes in contact with. That means mostly unarmed civilians, women and children. Cops like this are a very real danger to our communities and our nation. They are NOT our friends, they are NOT Patriots, they are NOT real Americans. And this news report is just spreading the lying leftist fascist propaganda.

  • jdbixii

    The sad fact is that there has been nothing accomplished by this president which would have recommended him to it. There has been more hype, controversy and divisiveness and gridlock, which he has simply ignored with executive orders which bypassed the due process of legislation which has been our tradition and constitutional prescription for more than 230 years and which characterizes “government of, by and for the people.” Minorities have created a “divided house” not based on ethnicity, race, or language but on fundamental differences in belief concerning morality and ethics. Apparently, as a community organizer in Chicago, Obama had so little effective influence that Chicago still has the highest murder rate in the nation. This has nothing to do with the availability of guns. This has to do with the evil in the human heart, not the color of its skin. Americans need to stand firm against the encroachments of a federal government which is out of control, and purposefully so. The fact is that liberal politicians are incapable of dealing with the mess that they have created and are attempting to put the blame on law-abiding citizens who know their rights and know exactly where the problems lie, who caused them, and what really needs to be done about it. Unfortunately, it is the majority of minorities which has the numbers to win elections and bring America down.

    Parents, Family and Friends of those in uniform be it military or law find out if your sons and daughters have been brainwashed to believe you and all Americans are enemies of the U.S.
    I have heard some say that if ordered to they would fire on whomever they were commanded to, be it family, friend or foe.
    Every citizen wants to believe our men and women in uniform abide by their pledge to uphold our Constitution. With the commander and chief and his regime we have today, and their Un-Constitutional actions it is becoming questionable what our military and law are being trained and brainwashed to do.

  • Shootstright

    Civilian crime is down , government crime is up , will this cop use this equipment to protect us from the government ?

  • OvesCanes

    I have been in law enforcement approaching 30 years now. This Indiana officer does not speak for me (or perhaps I fall into his “category” since I am also a military veteran). I make no apologies for the many idiots and miscreants this profession has employed and the abuses perpetrated by agencies. They have to carry their own water. All of them are reprehensible and do nothing but stoke hate and distrust of the diligent folks trying to do good by their communities. Several years ago at one of the very first Tea Party rallies, an attendee asked “what would you do if you were given and order to fire into a crowd of American’s?” I replied “Turn around and shoot the idiot that gave the order.”

  • Sarg

    I was the marksmanship coordinator with the guard unit.
    I had a couple highway patrolmen and a cop or 2 they were lousy shots
    because they only had to qualify at 17 feet.

    Now they give them military equipment and turn them loose on the
    public, when most can’t hit there butt with both hands.
    This can’t be my America.
